Late Nights

(This is Misty again.)
Here I am. It's Thursday night, 12:47, and I am sitting at the computer instead of being tucked away in my bed, getting some much needed sleep. Up until the last few days, my pregnancy hasn't created too much sleep interference for me. (Except the occasional potty break.) But boy how times have changed.

On Sunday, I started to get a couple of small red bumps on my stretch marks. By Monday night, my entire belly was covered in the bumps and was extremely itchy, so itchy that I spent the entire day on Tuesday on the couch, using all the will power I had not to scratch them. Then on Wednesday, I noticed that the bumps had spread to my legs and feet. We asked the doctor about them today at our weekly check up. He said that they are caused by a form of Staff infection that is common during pregnancy. It's not dangerous for the baby or for me (except my mental health). It's just another thing that I have to deal with. The itching is almost constant all day long. I sincerely hope that it quickly goes away, especially after the baby comes.

Ad for my Bro and Sis-in-law

So, my brother and sister-in-law, have been trying to have kids for 8 years now. After many tests, and even IVF, they are headed down the adoption path to start building their family.

If you know of ANYONE even considering putting up a baby for adoption, I am sure they would love to have the opportunity to add another person to their family.

Adoption agencies, (which they are starting to go through right now), can be full of waiting lists and headaches, and so if you know of any family, friends, in-state, out of state, in Europe, Antartica, that would love to have their baby watched after, loved and brought up in an awesome family and atmosphere, please get a hold of me, or my Brother and Sister-in-law.

Here is their adoption blog that they are putting together, (still under construction)

P.S. (Now you have to help finish it Ry, since I am advertising for you. : ) )

Finally Pics of the Baby's Room

We are very proud of the way our baby's room turned out. I don't think that we could have done it any better!

Here is the "Before" picture.
And now the "after"

Sorry if it looks like I am taking a picture of the floor, I wanted to get our cute furniture in there too. The top of the wall anyway is just beige.

We are excited to put a baby in there!

We love Baby Showers!

These pics are from a Baby Shower Misty had thrown for her back in june

Pics to Post

So, we are one of those people that take our camera places, meaning to take pictures, then hardly ever do!

However, over the past few months, we have taken some..... we just haven't posted them!

Here you go!

These are from when we had a bunch of my high school friends over to our house to celebrate one of our friends being in town.

Last day of work

Hello all! This is Misty, and this is my very first post. All of the others have been done by my computer literate husband. He is much better with these contraptions than I am, but I thought that I might take a stab at this blogging thing.

Today is my last day at work!!!! I am very excited to not have to sit through boring trainings, on uncomfortable chairs anymore. I am also very happy that I will be able to relax and take it easy for the next couple of weeks til the baby comes. I have loved working at Head Start. It has been a very rewarding job. The children I taught really touched my life, and I really miss them. School got out at the end of May. It's hard to get so attached to a child and then say goodbye, knowing that you may never see them again. Since school got out, we have just been doing trainings. YUCK!! The trainings would have been very helpful if I was coming back, but I'm not.

I kind of worry about not having a job. I have been a full time employee for so long, that I am worried that, in quitting, I will be missing part of my identity. What will I do when I no longer get a the positive affirmation of a paycheck for the work I do?

Even though these things worry me, and I may miss working, I know that my baby needs me. I know that the place I need to be is home with my child. I am so excited to be a mommy! I am amazed by the love that I already feel for this baby, and only expect that love to grow and flourish when he gets here. He is the second greatest blessing I have ever been given (Phil being the first). I have never felt the love of my Heavenly Father stronger than when he blessed us with this child. I just pray that I will be able to live up to the responsibility and challenge of motherhood. I pray that I can raise him the way that I should. He is such a special child that he deserves the best parent.
