embrace the camera: looking forward

lila and i took a little drive this morning


here is our conversation that obviously didn't happen (as lila can only say "bird" and "shoes") :
mom, you wanna go for a ride?...you can sit in the back.

me: sissy, you done lost your mind. you'll never grow up and drive a car. that's silly.

mom,this isn't pretend...i'm going to be driving in like, 14 years, so deal with it. actually, you are really embarrassing me...get out of the car.
Photobucket

our first fight! in my head...it still counts, right?


it's hard for me to imagine the littlest sissy taking me for a ride in her car one day. but she has to grow up. because there's another baby in my belly. again. i'm only 8 weeks...and not feeling too great. but i'm functional. i take that back, i'm semi-functional. i still cook dinner but never clean anything up.laundry is chin high...literally. but then again, that is how it always is. laundry is not my spiritual gift.


so ya'll know we miscarried last time around. this pregnancy has me on pins and needles, and through that, has me learning all over again to trust God. i am not in control...ugggg...you'd think i would have got that lesson by now after all we've been through! ha...nope, i'm a stupid human. so although this is a trying time, it's a rich time and it's a happy time. ready to move forward, i guess.

now go get your embrace on at emily's blog!

  5. barf away, sista! and remember, that's a good thing!

    ...and about the driving thing... my (almost) 8 yr. old gives me rides on his 4-wheeler. cuz, you know, I'm not capable of driving it myself. Lord knows I fear the day he's behind the wheel of a CAR! (or in his case, a jeep)

  8. Congrats!!!!! I too miscarried before my last baby so I'm praying for you big time! I'll pray that God gives you peace to sit back and enjoy and not worry! I worried till the day Easton was born! And now, he's 7 months old...and I still worry. ;) But, enjoy, relax, soak it in. God has blessed you with a little baby and you deserve to enjoy these moments!

    Love your blog!

  16. Seriously, sometimes I think our lives are so similar ~ the hubby thing, the miscarriage thing.... Anyway, I totally know what you are feeling! I miscarried when I was pregnant with our 3rd and when I got pregnant again, I had myself convinced I wasn't pregnant. Everything was going well, boobs hurt and all the "good" stuff going on, but still convinced myself otherwise. When I went to the dr. to hear the heartbeat for the 1st time ~ I even told my doc. I would be amazed if I heard it. She basically told me to knock it off and listened for it first before the rest of the exam. Yep, it was there and now I have a beautiful 2 year old to prove it! Take care of you, hope you feel better soon and CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!
