Our Days at the House

I've been taking it easy since hearing the latest about my preterm labor. Jason has done so much around the house. (I bet that he has made at least 10 trips to the store in the last 2 weeks). Everyone has been so great to help us out and to remember this baby and me in their prayers. The rest seems to be helping. We've been spending our days lounging around the house. I have been out only a few times and was actually surprised to see how green everything had become.

The kids are doing well. They have really started playing with each other all the more. They love to play "going to bed". They walk hand in hand and tuck one another into their beds. They also like to go on walks through the house pushing Abby Kate's stroller. Abby Kate has really started a more "imaginative" play. Joshua still loves to play baseball with daddy. They throw, play catch, hit the ball and Joshua runs the bases. When I ask the kids about the baby, Abby Kate tells me that she wants a baby sister and Joshua wants a baby brudder (Abby Kate says that she already has a bro).

Here are a few pictures from today. They love to take pictures!

I Can't Get Enough

Saying good-bye to the pizza and hello to the roast beef sandwich from Arby's!

24 Weeks

Here is the latest picture of the ever growing belly. Tomorrow I will actually be 26 weeks and it has unfortunately taken me this long to get it up on the blog.

I think that we are going to be looking into some internet plans in the next week or so.

I had my glucose screening today and saw the doctor as well. The baby is continuing to grow and the heartbeat has been a steady 150. I had been having a tremendous amount of back pain and even felt a few early contractions this morning. After my exam, the doctor did in fact reveal that I am having contractions and that my cervix is already 50% effaced. Not the news I was hoping for! Right now I am to take it easy and rest often. I have also been prescribed Brethine (which I took during my pregnancy with Joshua and Abby Kate) to help stop/ease the contractions that I am having. I am on the lowest dose for now. They are checking to make sure that I do not have a urinary tract infection (which could explain why I am starting to have these contractions). We were suppose to leave for Panama City Beach tomorrow, but I am also no longer allowed to leave town. Hopefully my body will cooperate and this little baby will be here in June!

Moving Days

We have spent the last week or so packing up and moving into our new house. We absolutely love the new place and can hardly wait to get it all settled. Our internet company does not service our new house, so we are in the process of looking into some internet plans. I am limiting my posting time to seeing Jason at the church office.

Here's the latest...

Joshua is doing really well with his potty training. (I feel like he is basically training himself). He only has about 2 - 3 accidents a day! He is so proud of himself and we are so happy.

When we moved, we put Abby Kate in a full bed and Joshua got her toddler bed. We have not had a single issue with it all. They love their new rooms and beds.

I am into my 24th week in my pregnancy. Everything looks great with the baby. I am measuring about 2 weeks ahead of schedule! (I will have Jason post a picture from this weekend).

We are planning on going to the beach in the next couple of weeks. Should be fun!

We got Dish Network and love it! I am still trying to figure out how to even turn the tv on.

The kids love seeing their fish in the pond and the cows. The other day while having lunch, we saw a horse that lives on the farm behind us.
