  • a little jumping bean!
  • really cozy in there.
  • looking really great.
  • a blessing.
Mama is:

  • on modified bed rest, until 34 weeks (8.5 months).
  • so happy that Pennie is great.
  • trying to take it easy.
  • craving cheese enchiladas, still.
  • right on target for tummy size.
  • not gaining much weight.
  • having a touch of the flu.

I love this update. Today as I was driving around I was lifting you and Pennie up to the Lord...

I am sure your heart hurts and you are experiencing such a myriad of emotions. I pray that the Lord will meet you where you are and bring you peace for the rest of the pregnancy. I'll pray that all your "little stamps" will be exceptionally obedient as you try to run a household in bed.

Love, Karen

This is great to hear that Pennie is doing so well and growing into such a big girl. Praying for you as you take this time to rest and get ready for another little one.

As excited as I know you are...

...I can hear the hurt in your 'voice'.

Praying, praying, praying for you.

I found your blog a week or two and wanted to say hi. I am sorry about the loss of your twin. I lost one about 6 years ago (at 9 weeks) and just wanted you to know I am praying too!

:o) Nice to "meet" you.

I am so pleased to hear about precious Pennie's progress. Sorry to hear about bedrest though - hope you are able to take it easy even while running a busy household.
I've been thinking of & praying for you - sorry I haven't been around much - my real life has taken a busy turn just at the moment, but please know you are in my prayers.
So how far along are you?
God bless you
