21 week update

Here I am at 21 weeks... This picture doesn't show my belly as big yet, but trust me it is getting there. I am bigger than I was at this point with Sophia, but I hear that is normal the second time around.

I go to the doctor again on September 22, and hopefully he'll schedule an ultrasound so I can see my little peanut on the screen again. I had one at 16 weeks, so it'll be fun to see how big the little peanut is now!

Ok, that is all about me for now. I just wanted to share a picture. My belly button has popped, and when you pull my shirt tight across my belly you can see my belly button sticking out. It will go back to normal eventually.. at least it did with Sophia.

Alright, gotta go. Have a good day!

An update

I was reminded today how I haven't updated this in a while... thanks Tiana!

Whats been going on with me? Well, I am now over half way into this pregnancy, which means my life will change forever again in less than 4 1/2 months! Bring it on! We still dont know what we are having, but that is a part I like. I like not knowing. My next appointment is on Monday sep 22, so we'll probably have an ultrasound scheduled after that.

Lately, I have been feeling old... ok, yes I know I am 24 and not old, but I can remember the night before 7th grade and telling my mom in what I thought was a grown up conversation that the next 6 years of my life were going to be great, jr high and high school, and that they would go soo slow and I would love it all. Now here I am 6 years out of high school and wondering where the time went? That conversation happened 12 years ago, half my life ago!

Then it started me thinking on what I have done in those 12 years for Christ. What HE has done for me will never compare to what I can do for HIM, but does that mean I shouldn't try?? NO WAY! I need to keep pushing on and keeping striving to better the kingdom of God! What a priviledge I get to live out! I just wish I had this attitude every day. What I need to do is wake up and just make it my attitude. There are only a few things you can truly control in life, and your attitude is one of them. You can't always control how others are goign to treat you or how the cards will be dealt, but you can control how you respond to everything that is handed to you.

That is my challenge to you , anyone who reads this. MAke the most of every day. When you wake up make it your daily challenge to commit to and SERVE the most HOlY God! Recently we had to say goodbye to a very dear lady in our church and I have never met anyone who said a bad thing about this lady. What a testimony for her sure but to the God she served! I want to have that for me! Not so people look at me and think of me as a good person when I die, but to look at me and say wow, she was on fire to serve God and made it her life mission! That is what I want to be remembered for. And to be honest, I'm not doing a good job. I want and need to do better. Sophia is getting bigger and will soon start to really see what her mommy is like and I want her to see a woman who fears the God she serves and not only says it but lives it!

Speaking of Sophia, she is so cute and growing so fast. She is in love with her daddy and cries when he leaves and curls up on the couch when he is trying to sleep. I love that she loves her daddy and needs him. What a special relationship they are building. A father daughter relationship can mean so much for a young girl. I know I had a great relationship with my dad, and still do, but now as a mother I can respect all my dad and mom did for me growing up.

Ok, what a post. I need to go to bed. I'm super tired and I have a bit of a headache. I really dont want to take anything for it if I dont have to, so I think sleeping it off is the best bet right now. Goodnight everyone!
