Yesterday, Elizabeth had a checkup and she's now in the 99% for height and 97% for weight. Hehe, big girl. No wonder she's in 2T/3T at 13 months. ^_^ I was pleased to see that her iron was at 12.5 (it's gotta be the grits she has for breakfast every morning). She didn't even care… Continue reading Thoughts & Happenings 8/16/17

While gone, I've gotten my first trimester with baby #5 out of the way (woo-hoo!) and if things continue to go well, I will never have to endure a first trimester again, lol. It was actually really easy this… Continue reading Thoughts & Happenings 8/6/17

June 1 It's surprising me how much I'm enjoying playing Minecraft with the kids. The whole look of the game always annoyed me, but it's actually quite fun. :) In my world, I am currently living with Samuel (he likes having his own tree house but prefers to live with someone, aww) and Maggie and… Continue reading Thoughts & Happenings (June 1-15, 2017)

My hCG levels from yesterday were almost triple what they'd been on Tuesday!! They went from 4,833 to 12,771 in forty-eight hours. 😊 This is fantastic news as it means the pregnancy appears to be progressing normally! Some thoughts on this day at which point I've known about baby #5 for a little over twenty-four… Continue reading Thoughts & Happenings 06/09/17
