Another Appointment

I had another doctor's appointment today. Nothing new to report. Everything seems to be progressing fine. The results from my ultrasound are good. I guess they didn't find anything out of the ordinary. That's always a relief. I reached 21 weeks today. The next thing I have to do is my glucose test. I'm expecting that to turn out fine but we shall see.

We're Having A...

Well, we had our 20 week ultrasound on Monday and we found out what we're having. We're having another boy! We're very excited! We were hoping for a boy. Of course, we would have been just as excited if we were having a girl but this was the news we were hoping for. Having another boy evens things out. Now the girls won't outnumber the boys anymore.

The doctor's office called today with the results of the ultrasound. The nurse said everything looked good. That's always a relief to hear. My next appointment is on Monday.

I can't believe I'm already past the halfway mark in my pregnancy. The ultrasound put my due date on May 21st but my official due date is still May 26th which is Memorial Day. I'm expecting the baby to come before my due date just because that is my history. So, a little over 4 months to go. He'll be here before we know it!

My Rant For the Day

I was watching The O'Reilly Factor tonight and he did a segment to promote his new book "Kids Are Americans Too". I haven't read his book but I am more interested in it now that I saw this segment on his show. He sent a reporter out to the streets of New York and he asked teenagers questions like "Why is it great to be an American?" and "Why is America great?" I don't remember if that is exactly how the questions were worded but they were along those lines. Hardly any of the teenagers could answer the questions. The reporter approached two teenage boys and asked one of them if he would ever serve in our military. His answer: "Hell no! What have they ever done for me?" My mouth literally fell open. I couldn't believe he actually said that. What has our military ever done for him? It only gave him all the freedoms that he enjoys today. It has only protected us from our enemies over the years.

I guess I shouldn't be too shocked that those teenagers couldn't answer simple questions about why our country is so great. Our public school system spends so much time teaching self-esteem and sex education that it forgets to teach history and civics. So many kids today have this attitude that everything is owed to them and they don't need to respect anyone. I know that not all teenagers are like that and many know why our country is great but it just made me sick to know that so many in this younger generation don't respect their elders or our country and it's history. They don't understand how great our freedoms are or what it took and still takes for us to enjoy those freedoms. It was frustrating to watch these kids and I pray for our country's future.

Big News!

Hey everyone! I don't even know if anyone still checks my blog on a regular basis since it's been two months since I last posted but I thought this bit of news was blog worthy. We're expecting another baby! We found out a week ago and I went to the doctor today and got it officially confirmed. I'm five weeks along and my due date is May 26th. We're very excited but also feeling a bit overwhelmed at the thought of having 4 kids. But we know we'll be okay and God will take care of us. I just hope he grants me enough patience. :)

I'm going to try to blog more regularly now. It was a very busy summer with my family visiting from India and the last few weeks have been busy with getting back into the routine of school. I'm homeschooling again this year. Our oldest daughter is in 1st grade, our second daughter is in preschool and I'm busy trying to keep our son occupied during school hours. It's a lot to handle but I know it's worth it. Now, we're adding another baby to the mix. Ahhh! It's all good though.

Hope all of you out there are doing well.

Happy Anniversary!

Happy Anniversary to my hubby of 8 years! Wow! Part of me still can't believe that Stephen and I have been married that long and another part of me feels like we've already been married for a lifetime. I can't even imagine what it feels like when you've been married for as long as our parents have been (almost 29 years for my parents and 35 for Stephen's).

We've had our share of ups and downs but mostly ups. We rarely argue and I am so thankful for that. We have 3 beautiful children together, 2 of which caused us great stress when they were born prematurely. We have been through deaths in the family and a heart attack that almost took my dad from us over 4 1/2 years ago. But it's situations like those that have caused us to grow closer to each other and have made us stronger. We've seen each other at our weakest and most vulnerable states and we've cried on each other's shoulders. We've also experienced the happiest times of our lives together. We've traveled the world together sharing our faith with others.

The most important part of our marriage is its foundation. Christ is the center of our marriage. Without Him we would be like so many others. We're still learning new things about each other but we know each other better than anyone else does except for God. I look forward to this 8th year of marriage and I pray that we will have many more to come.

I love you Stephen!

Btw, the traditional gift for the 8th anniversary is bronze or pottery. Just thought you might like to know. ;)
