Restarting this thing...

I forgot I had a blog! Well, I decided to restart writing in it, because I know the world wants to hear my thoughts..... (yeah, right).

Since my last post, I've had baby Noah, at 40 weeks. I wonder if I wouldn't have gone on bedrest if he would have come earlier...nah, I wouldn't want to find out. He's perfect as he is :)

Noah is 4 months now (almost 5) and Jeremiah just had his 4th birthday. Elijah is 6, and all the boys are doing great! Another wonderful development: my sister and brother-in-law (and 4 kids) have moved to Atlanta! Kelley (bro-in-law) got a job here, and they have moved about a week ago. They are living with us until they find where they want to settle, and we are loving having family!

So, I am taking the semester off, and will be returning in the fall. I need to complete my clinical hours, since I was on bedrest for most of last semester. I'm pretty sad that I wont be graduating with my friends, but Ive decided to apply for the PhD program at Emory, so I wouldn't be doing class with them anyway! Still, I love my classmates.

For right now, thats all I have to say. Perhaps I can become more focused on how I want this blog to go, but for now, I'm just glad to have restarted it.

I am on bedrest only two more days. Thank GOD! Im glad this precious little one has stayed put in there long enough to not give mommy a heart attack. Im also glad to be able to move around like a normal person! I am planning on celebrating on Sunday by going to church...havent been for a month, and thats been tough. I also plan on taking walks each evening to get back into "shape" for the birth. I definitely feel like mush after 4 weeks on my rear end.

We have everything ready for the birth, have the birth pool and all its accessories, as well as my birth nest is all set up. The cloth diapers are getting here today, which is the last thing we need for baby. Im ready, but not ready, for this little one to come. I still think its too early, even though 36 weeks is generally ok. I just dont want feeding problems, ugh, that is just too trying (Im having flashbacks of Elijah's first month of life). I also want Larry's mommy to be here, so that I wont have to worry about the kids during the birth. After next Sat, Ill be raring to go!
