seat belts and what did I do in your belly

Carson started karate last month. While we were in Florida he told us that if he keeps up with karate he will get more seat belts. Jonathan and I laughted all day about his cute little comment.
Carson told Jonathan today when he grows up he wants to be a "bad guy" because he can out run Batman and Robin.
My sweet little boy is asking a ton of questions about what the baby is doing in my belly. But he takes it a step further and wants to know what he did in my belly. Lovely! How do I answer that question?

We need to unpack and get prepared for a busy week.

bags are backed

Yea baby...we are out of here tomorrow and heading to 'sunny' Florida. I can not wait to see green grass, flowers blooming and the sun shining. Carson is very excited as well. He told me this morning "he can not wait to fly on the plane and see mickey mouse again."
As for the pregnancy, the baby is really kicking strong now- wow! I had the level two ultrasound yesterday. The physician was very happy with the development of the baby. All is well and right on schedule. God is Good!!

Adopting and time to come out

We are still planning on adopting again. However we have slowed the process down as we need to focus on the new baby coming in June. We are hoping to pick up the adoption process in the fall of 2011. In the mean time we are still searching and praying about the right country to adopt from-
Our conversation tonight about the baby
C: Mommy your belly is getting to big.
M: I know Carson
C: Maybe it's time for the baby to come out and play with me
M: Not yet but soon
a few minutes later
C: how about now Mommy? Baby Skywalker wants to play lego's

Do you ever wonder...

Is this really what life is all about?
What is this rat race all about?
When is life really going to start for me?
When do I start to settle into my life?
Do I really take time to enjoy what God has given us?
Is this what family life is about?
Will my children remember what I have done for them?
Am I the only one who has these thoughts?

Tomorrow I turn

19 weeks pregnant. It's unbelievable how much my body has transformed within the last 4 1/2 months. I am not sure if I like it- I am still getting use to the baby moving around in my belly. Some times it really catches me off guard and I start to panic a little. As far as the development of the baby- all is well. Praise God!
I am starting to get my energy back however I do take frequent naps. Carson loves to touch my belly and everyday he kisses the baby (as he says). He thinks I have three baby's in my belly and their names are going to be "baby skywalker".

Yes I am

finally pregnant. Every Monday is another week I am pregnant. I am due around June 5, 2011. We have decided not to find out the gender of the baby as we want a happy surprise.
More to come on the pregnancy.... stay tuned!
