Obviously my new background didn't work. It was really cute, too. It pasted really big and not like the picture showed. If you know why this happened, please enlighten me.

I forgot to mention this. A few months ago I was dealing with anxiety again really bad. Like, I lost 6 pounds in 6 days bad. I realized some things, and me and God worked it out. I tend to let fear take control. It doesn't happen often, but when it does it completely overcomes me. Anyway, I started reading my Bible again like I should've been all along. I didn't have a 'Bible study' to go by at that time so I took Bro Rick's advice and just started reading Psalms and Proverbs. This past Sunday our lesson was on Psalm 56 ( I think that's the right chapter). Next to verses 8-9 I had written "WOW". In my paraphrase it says...

'You know my wanderings. Put my tears into your bottle. Do you not keep account of them all?'

Basically, we are so important to Him that he KEEPS every tear we cry. Even the often stupid ones that don't amount to anything! That spoke to me loud and clear. Why in the world would I worry about anything if He loves me that much.

Just a nice thought.

Still Here.

Well, I'm still here. Our internet at home has been odd lately and there are probably going to be layoffs at work, so I figured blogging wouldn't be a good idea for a while. Not much is going on with us. Just work, church, family, football. We went back to the doctor Monday and all is well. I was hoping for an ultrasound, but wasn't that lucky. We'll find out November 16 at our next appointment. I'm really excited to finally know. I have to admit, this pregnancy has flown by very quickly so far. I'm sure I'll feel differently toward the end but so far, so good.

The company my sister and I work for has been "aquired" by our Memphis office. Not a big deal for our agents and their clients, but they may decide they don't need any staff people here in Birmingham. Now we just wait and, for some reason, gossip. I cannot stand it when people almost twice my age act like kids. Some people don't understand how we can work with our youth and not go crazy. But I'd rather deal with 14 year olds who act like 14 year olds than 50 year olds who act like 14 year olds. Enough of that. I'll keep you updated.

One of these days I'll get a fun background and upload pics, but I haven't really had time. I've only done 1 belly pic which was the week we found out we were expecting. I know I need to do more. Be patient. :) I'm gaining lots of weight like a good pregger. I gained 10 pounds the first trimester and 8 in this last month! Dr. Stradtman still says not to worry. I was never sick so I've just been hungry. I'm sure I'll be huge like everyone else in my family.

Hope everyone is good. We've got choir tonight- yeah Christmas music!!!!- and then nothing much until we get together with a few people to watch LSU STOMP us Saturday night. :) Still great to be an Auburn Tiger. Have a great weekend everyone.

Not easy...

I'm gaining weight like a pro. I know it's a good thing and I'm supposed to be gaining now, but that doesn't make it any easier. After consistently losing weight for the past 2 years, putting it back on- so quickly- is still hard. I go back to the doctor October 19th and we'll see what she says. Previously, I was told not to worry about it.
Everyone wants to know what the nursery will look like and what colors I'm doing everything. But I think I'm going to wait until I'm at least 5 months before I do anything to the nursery. I don't mean to be negative, but I think it'd be crazy to fix everything up before then. I know everything has been perfect so far, but I'd rather be rational about this one little thing. I'm not very rational about much else!
People ask what we "want" and we honestly would be happy either way. I think deep down all girls want girls and all boys want boys. When we talk about "the kid", Matt always says 'he' and I always say 'she'. We joke about it a lot. Everyone who knows my family says we should have a boy since our family has mostly girls now. But all the babies at church- our class has produced about 12 babies in the last 12 months- have been boys, except for 2. Those boys are gonna need little girls to marry one day!
Well, I'm at work so I better get back to it.
