So, my husband is the best. Sorry, ladies, he's taken!
I have a confession to make. I am irritable with this early stage of pregnancy. Part of it is nerves, and part of it is hormones, and part of it is the exhaustion. Also, part of it is sin and I am praying daily to watch my tongue and patience with my kids. But I'm grumpy.
I was telling Tim last night about how I feel about this, and his response, "It's all a part of the process." So accepting and simple. Instead of being highly annoyed with me (as perhaps he had a right to be) he just accepts this as par for the course for growing a baby.
Miss N took the ultrasound pictures to school today (she wanted to, it was not my suggestion, and I cleared it with her teacher first, who of course was out today but what can you do?) She is very excited about the baby. Although, the other night when I was having my issue and we could not go to church, I told her we couldn't go because mommy wasn't feeling well. Her response? "Sheesh, you are always not feeling well. When will you get better? When the baby comes out? That is already taking FOREVER!" She's got a lot to learn if a week is forever!
I am thinking about letting her and maybe Miss M come to the 20 week ultrasound. I think Miss N would think it is really cool. Anyone done that before with an older kid? She will be close to 6 at that time.
