Visit from Tay-Tay

Well, our week with Tay-Tay has come to an end.  We picked her up in SC when we went down to shoot a wedding.  We had LOTS of fun while she was here.  Josiah really enjoyed having someone around besides Mommy.  On Monday, we went to a MOPS leader meeting.  Tayler and Josiah were able to hang out with some other kids while I attended the meeting.  Tuesday was a pretty quite day.  A day to catch up and get back on our routine.  On Wednesday, we went to the Sully Plantation for a behind the scnenes tour of the house.  Thursday, we got up and drove to Winchester to go to a children's museum.  Both Tayler and Josiah enjoyed themselves.  On Friday, we had some friends over for lunch and to go swimming. Tayler enjoyed hanging out with the girls so much that she went over to their house on Saturday.  On Sunday, we went to church and Sunday School and then waited for Uncle Toady and Auntie Sue to arrive.  They drove to pick up Tayler so they could stop by Williamsburg on the way home.  From the sounds of it, they had a wonderful time.  Yesterday after everyone left, Josiah was beside himself.  They had already left by the time he got up.  The first thing he did was crawl to Tayler's room.  He just sat out in the hallway looking for her.  Poor thing probably realized it was back to Josiah and Mommy.  He was very clingy all day, but that was OK.  I tried to get as much done as I could during his naps. 

The next few weeks are going to be pretty busy for the Greenwoods.  Josiah has a doctor appointment for his weight.  We have another doctor appointment for G2.  Family Camp Day and the Sunday Cookout is somewhere in there.  I am orgainizing it and Chris is teaching all the Bible lessons. Chris will be leading worship.  He will also be preaching one Sunday.  Then he will be taking the oral exams for his ordination plus taking his bus driving exam.  He will also have to continue with the teaching, so as you can see we will all be pretty busy.  We are looking forward to the August 17th because our lives should quiet down after that day.  Please keep us in your prayers as we head into this busy season--that we will all stay healthy and well rested.

A Good Day

Well, today has been a good day.  It's the first time in awhile that I woke up with some energy.  It might be the fact that Chris let me have the bed to myself and took the baby monitor with him to the guest room, so I could have a good night's sleep.  What a great hubby I have!  I'm taking advantage of this energy and have been a cleaning mad woman today.  I'm catching up on laundry, cleaned the kitchen, cleaned the bathrooms and made my bed for the first time in a few days.  I hope to catch up on some ironing, but that isn't high on my list---probably because it's something I don't like to do!  Smile  I switched bathrooms today, so I'm no longer sharing with the boys.  Chris had his own bathroom, but hasn't been able to use it in the morning.  The shower is right behind Josiah's bed and whenever Chris took a shower, it would wake him up.  Since I take my shower later in the day when Josiah is up, I decided to switch bathrooms and let the boys have their own.  I'm making my own little sanctuary, and I hope to be able to find some time to relax. 

Well, I should probably get going, so I can continue to take advantage of nap time and energy.  Hope all is well with everyone!

January 22nd

Well, we went to our first doctor appointment today and everything went well.  We really like the doctor we met today.  She was very informative and had a great personality with us.  We felt very welcomed and were treated so well by all the staff.  There are two other doctors, and I'm sure we will eventually met them during this pregnancy.  The only thing that caught us off guard was the fact their office is right in the hospital.  I guess when you live in a big city things will be done differently.  We actually had to call the office because our GPS system said we had arrived, and we were in the hosptial parking lot.  We thought Marge had guided us incorrectly, but she was correct.  Nothing really excited happened---just blood work, an exam and heard G2's heart beat.  It is still the most wonderful sound to our ears.  We won't have an ultrasound until the 18th-20th week and at that time we will find out the sex of the baby.  We did find out that our due date is January 22nd, but know our little one will arrive when he/she is ready.  Not much else is going on here.  We had a great time celebrating our 7th anniversary on Monday.  We went out to dinner with some friends from church in celebration of their upcoming wedding.  We will be heading to SC next weekend, so I can take their wedding pictures.  I'm very excited to be doing this.  We thank everyone for all their continued prayers and hope you are doing well.

Well, I'm about 10 weeks into this pregnancy and have been VERY tired.  I don't remember being this tired with Josiah.  Maybe it's because I wasn't chasing a year old around.  I would think that 20 6 and 7 year olds would be more tiring than a one year old.  : )  I've been enjoying my afternoon naps while Josiah sleeps.  I should probably do housework of some kind, but I'm just so tired that the nap always wins.  I told Chris the other day that I'm in survival mode.  I make sure that Josiah is fed and has a clean diaper and that I get my meals in.  If I get all of that done, then I consider it a successful day!  Chris has been a super hubby! He has taken on quite a bit--dishes, laundry, helping even more with Josiah, cooking here and there along with working at the church all day. He even does it without complaining.  I'm so appreciative and thankful for him.  I hope that I'm coming to the point where I will start getting some of my energy back. 

We go to the doctor on Tuesday, so we are pretty excited to hear the heartbeat.  Hopefully, we get to have an ultrasound, but we will have to wait and see.  We'll keep you posted of what is going on.  Thanks for all of the prayers.
