It's time for another post, gals.  I felt the need to do an update, although there isn't tons going on.  I'm trying to get my life to be about more than my pregnancy.  After all, I DO have a life here, with kids and husband and such!

Right now, as we speak, Pennie is hopping around in my tummy.  She's quite the active little thing! My next sonogram is the 8th.  I think my tummy is now regular size.  I just don't feel super pregnant like I was and I don't look as huge as I was just two weeks ago.  I've been super, super tired again lately, like I was at the beginning of my pregnancy.  I mean, I could sleep all day!

We're doing pretty well here, emotionally.  I asked Sofia, who's 4, if she knew where Olivia was, and she thought for a moment and said, "She's in Heaven."  I asked her if she knew where Pennie was, and she said, "She's in there," pointing to my tummy.  I think she gets it, even in her little mind.  There aren't any strange emotional things going on around here, or any devastation.  We're just trying to get through this as a family, with the Lord, the best way we know how.

We're having a lazy Sunday afternoon today.  It's Dave's only day at home, and we enjoy it so much! The day seems to last forever, as we get to be with him and just breathe together as a family.  We seriously needed this day!

Most of the girls are in the office room playing Beauty Shop.  I let them use my straightening iron and my blow dryer, and they're loving it.  Hannah, who is 13, just doesn't like to do stuff like that.  She's laying on the couch with a stomach ache.  Russell is out in his trailer doing what boys do.

Dave and I are discussing our ballots.  I love it because he fills out both of our ballots and then gives me mine to sign.  I never have to worry about researching anything anymore, which is something I just hate!! It's so much easier on me.  I trust him implicitly!

Tomorrow is another day.  Right now, I just don't want to go anywhere.  I'm getting a lot of questions like "how far along are you?" and "do you know what you're having? and "when are you due?"  I crave the familiarity of home and my family.  Tomorrow is another day when Dave goes back to work.  I know the strength of the Lord is going before me and I am glad for that!

I hope today never ends!!

Hi Leanne
I haven't read your blog for a while as we've been away - I finally got here tonight & had to read your previous posts about precious Olivia. I'm so sorry I wasn't there to provide you with any comfort - I'm crying here over your loss & will continue to lift you up to the Lord - why you have to travel this difficult journey again - I don't know & I'm so sorry that you do my sweet friend. I wish I could be there to hug you & help you out a bit, but please know that I'm holding you & your precious baby to the Lord often.
Love to you
Renata XO

How fun that the girls are playing beauty shop. Don't you love it when your girls brush your hair? sigh...I love that. It puts me to sleep. ;)

I'm so happy that you're feeling better emotionally.

Hey friend! I hope your week is going well. How far away from home did your family move? We are about 2.5 hours but it seems like a million sometimes.
