Baby #2 and updates on us

I had my 1st doctors appointment yesterday for baby #2. Only good news to report. I have lost weight (which I did with Madi as well) 10 lbs. so far! The doctor decided since I was 10 weeks along to try and see if he could hear the heartbeat (normally you may not be able to until 11-12 weeks). Guess what he was able to hear the heartbeat! That was just what I needed for some relief of miscarrying. I will be so much better once I make it past the 1st trimester. For those of you who don't know I miscarried twice before Madison once at 8 weeks and another at 12 weeks. I feel pretty hopeful with this one though! I'm an pretty sure I felt the baby move yesterday as well. Is it in my imagination??? What is the earliest you felt your baby move????
Well here is a little update on Madison. She is in full fledged temper tantrum mode when she doesn't get what she wants. She repeats EVERYTHING we say so we have to watch what we say or watch on tv because she is such a sponge. She is very active. Sings all day long especially the alphabet. She loves to dance and loves everyone to dance with her so if the music is on I hear "Momma dance!" or "Dadda dance!" She loves to watch movies and her favorite tv shows some of her current favorites are; Phineas and Ferb, Cinderella, Peter Pan, Blues Clues, The Chipmunks adventure, and Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. She is such a little Mommy and will be a great helper when her little brother or sister comes. She rocks her baby dolls and puts them to bed with a blanky and pillow. Pretends to feed them. She has a great imagination. One of her favorite saying right now that drives me crazy "I can't (do it, watch that, etc)" IT DRIVES ME CRAZY! But I do love her to death she a blessing in my life.
Joe is getting ready to start school again for the Fall semester. He has 2 more years left of school and we both will be glad when he is finally done. I feel bad because he works full time and goes to school full time. I am trully grateful for my husband he does so much for our family and works so hard. I couldn't ask for a better husband and father. Well I think I rambled on enough so I guess that is all the updates for now until next time.

Clinging to sanity by a thread

Lots of changes happening lately. If you know me well enough you know I do not do well with change. I just don't handle it well I never have since a young age.  Joe just started school again which 2 days in I am already hating it so much. Madison is a HANDFUL right now. She wants every second of my attention I have been really trying to break her of that before this next little one comes in March. I am realizing pregnancy is so much harder with a 2 year old. I am tired and exhausted and cranky. Which in turn makes me have 10 times less patience with her. We just seem to battle it out everyday which is so frustrating. I really need to potty train her but I just can't seem to get the motivation to do it.  My calling in church has just been too overwhelming for me. I am the "permanent sub" for Sunday school they want me to plan a lesson every week and then just where ever they need me they stick me there. It is really hard to gear the lesson because I don't know what age I am teaching and each class is on different lessons so sometimes they have heard it already and just tone me out. You know how teenagers can be. Not really sure what I am going to do about it but with all my hormones it is too stressful and overwhelming and I am going to have to talk to the bishop or something. Being pregnant in itself is super stressful to me right now because of having Miscarried twice in the past I am so nervous about it happening again. I miss my friends like real friends I miss Shara I can't believe she has been gone now for almost 5 years. Life just seems to stressful right now and I feel like I am hanging onto sanity by a thread. I am praying for patience and peace. Praying for the calm after the storm. I hope it comes soon.
