In the past two years I have been amazed at the stores from people I have met who are having difficult pregnancies. And since I have had one myself I view the people I meet as an opportunity to connect with, love on and encourage.
It's a hard thing. No one can really understand unless you have been there yourself. However, one thing every one can do is pray.
I have a friend from high school, Jennifer. I found out a few months ago, thanks to facebook, that she is have a set of boy/girl twins. I have gotten to share some twin info with her for the past few weeks, but today found out that she needs some prayer.

She is 27 weeks tomorrow and is on bed rest at the hospital. She has pre-eclampsia and her little girl had stunted growth. She is touch and go on delivering every day. They are hoping she just makes it to the end of the week.
If delivered at this point, her twins won't be able to breathe on their own, will have to be tube-fed and will be seriously prone to disease. However, every day she can keep them in, they will be saved 3 days in the NICU.
Please pray for this family.

Going on a duck hunt...

Two weeks ago I took the boys on their first picnic. We went to a near by pond to see the ducks and eat some lunch. We had a lot of fun...minus the ducks. This pond is in a neighborhood and so the ducks are more like pets and really like kids and assume they want to feed them. So there was a lot of chasing...meaning...the ducks were chasing the boys. We all know how they feel about animals!!

Showing me the ducks.
Train up a child in the way he shall go - HA!!!!!!!!!!!!! Or in other words, start 'em young!

They are going to get me!!!

Can you tell he is running from them and they are coming after him?!

We shewed them away and he is telling them to stay away!
Enjoying the freedom to walk wherever!

Mother's Day

Well, I was spoiled this past weekend and I liked it!

I got to go to see my family this past week which was the beginning of the spoiling. (pictures to come). Then over the weekend I got to go get a hair cut, dinner with friends, donuts for breakfast Sunday morning, a nap, mani/pedi and Mexican food for dinner!

Oh man, it was awesome! Thank you Nate, Blake and Owen!

I love being a mommy. My boys are awesome. It's been easier than expected because I have a great example in my mom. Plus many other awesome examples from my grandma, mother in law, sister, sister in law and Nate's grandparents. I am so surrounded by great examples - I am so thankful for all of them.

Here are some photos from the weekend.

After church. Blake wouldn't sit with me :(

Owen and Dada at dinner. Look at that sneak attach chip stealer!
