Don't bug me

So summer is coming to a close and I'm feeling as my daughter says "bigger and bigger" :)

I also feel the hormones kicking in. Main reason, everyone BUGS me...Everyone, the mail man, the clerk at the store, my kids and for no particular reason. I asked Andy if he thought it was because I was pregnant and before I finished the sentence he said "yes!!"...lucky for him, he's not bugging me ;)

Excited to go for our ultrasound tomorrow, and I'm determined to NOT find out the sex of the baby. I will close my eyes if need to

I'm kinda've felt dry this summer, desert dry, as far as life being stagnant. Same routine, same thing and it's left me feeling frustrated. Well, I kept asking the Lord about it and something jumped out at me while I was in the car listening to the kids bible tapes. Basically it sings specific bible verses. The one that stood out to me was from 1 Peter "exceeding great and precious promises are given unto us" and I cried out " I want to know these promises!! as they apply to me!

so guess I gotta read the bible ;)....In our daily reading plan we were reading out of Jeremiah 31:17 "So there is a hope for your future"

I'll take it!! as one of the precious promises to me

new season

I'm really enjoying this cooler weather. It reminds me that change is in the air. Maybe not just because it's August and a new school year will start and that it will begin to get cold in a month or soo...ok I said it. I feel there is change for the Jones family. Specifically, ( I love when people are specific ;), regarding Andy's job. It will be interesting. We will see.

I almost have a 2 year old. Caden turns 2 on August 18th. I love seeing his personality grow and him express himself more. He's soo different then Morgan in some areas. He is quite a teaser and for this reason I have ventured to guess that boys don't need to be taught to be teasers. Maybe naughty teasers but, just overall trying to get a reaction, they don't need to get taught that.

This pregnancy is going by quickly, but I have enjoying it for the most part. That's easier to say as I'm past the puking stage. Entering now the heartburn stage....oh my

Been finding myself giving to more tendency to worry and become distracted and finding peace in the Bible and thinking about the good things Jesus as for us and actively practicing being grateful. A friend told me, that sometimes she starts to verbally thank Jesus for everything around her when she get's down. For example: thank you Jesus for the sun, thank you Jesus for my car, thank you Jesus that I have food in my fridge. you get the point. I've started to do this when my-self can't see anything to be grateful for.
