Well, we are all moved in and almost have everything in place. We just have a few things that need to be stored, but we are just trying to figure out where to store them. We have so much space that we don't know what to do with ourselves! We have a few more curtains to hang--and purchase, but those are things that we can do over time. We also need to get a rug for the playroom, but again it's not something we need to do right away--even though Mommy would like to get it done. We hope to start hanging things on the walls this weekend. I have a few things to do to organize--bathroom medicine cabinets, but again that isn't high on the priority list.
Josiah has done a GREAT job transitioning to his new home. He LOVES all the space and the stairs. He has gotten to be such a big boy in just the last week since we've moved. He is now eating what we eat and has picked up more baby signs. He can now do "drink please", "down please", "thank you" along with the other ones he already knows. We haven't been as diligent with his reading program because of unpacking and not having the TV set up yet, but we plan on getting back on track. Josiah's comprehension has really improved. We can ask him to do something or go get something, and he understands what we are saying.
Sophie continues to grow and is getting really active. We are 26 weeks today, so we only have 14 more weeks. I know this time will go by quickly. Chris has his ordination service on November 1st, then Thanksgiving and Christmas will be here before we know it along with Chris' birthday. We have some church activities to fill in over the next few months, so we know this time will go by fast.
I hope to take some pictures of our new place this weekend and download them, so come back in a few days to see our new home.

Well, I decided to wait and see what my results were before I posted anything. I took my glucose test almost 2 weeks ago. I found out a week later, that the results were borderline gestational diabetic. So yesterday, I went for the three hour glucose test. I got to the hospital around 7:45am and didn't leave until 12:00pm. After peeing five times and being poked in the arm five times (P & P), the results came back saying that everything is fine. I will admit I was some what concerned since gestational diabetes and adult diabetes run in my family. But many prayers were lifted up on my behalf and God was listening. I just praise Him for having the results come back with good news. I am a little bruised from all the poking, but other than that I'm doing fine.
Sophie continues to be very active. She has started playing the game of kicking back after I poke at my belly. Daddy tries to play the game, but she won't play with him--already giving him a hard time!
On Friday, I will be 30 weeks, so we will have around 10 more weeks to go. I know the time will go by quickly with Thanksgiving and Christmas approaching. We will be staying in VA for the holidays as I'm starting to get to the point where I'm really uncomfortable. Some of our good friends from NC will be joining us for Thanksgiving, so we are very excited about that. We will have a quiet Christmas with just the three of us.

This week, we had a little bit of a scare. OK, so I was a little scared and Chris stayed cool, calm and collected. Monday night, I started getting some pretty bad cramps in my back and front. I took some Tylenol and laid down, and I started feeling a little better. Tuesday, I got up feeling better, but not 100%. As the day went on, I started getting more cramps and some pressure, so I called the doctor. They wanted me to come in, so they could check me out. I was a wreck because I was so worried that there was something wrong. When I got there, the doctor did an internal and found that everything looked fine, but she wanted me to be on bed rest for the rest of the day and to limit my activities on Wednesday. Chris was supposed to have a meeting at the church on Tuesday night, but he came home to take care of me and Josiah. I've said it many times before, "How did I get blessed with such a wonderful husband?" I would try to get up and get something, and he would banish me back to the couch and bring it to me. Since Wednesday, I haven't had any more problems and Sophie is kicking and having a great time. We don't really know what caused all this, but feel it might have been from all the traveling and packing of boxes. I praise the LORD for keeping Sophie safe and letting everything be OK with her. I'm so thankful that the doctor didn't just blow it off and was very reassuring about things looking great and encouraging to call back if I continued to have concerns. We are counting down the weeks until Sophie's due date--16 more weeks, but 13 more weeks until we are safely out of the woods. Continue to pray that everything goes smoothly with this pregnancy and we don't have any more scares.
