Not Me! Monday

Mckmama- Not Me Monday

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

NOTE: This entry is not for faint of heart, or for men (no comments about whether those two are synonymous)...

Surely it is not me who, while already very blessed in certain anatomical areas, is finding herself EVEN MORE blessed now during pregnancy #3!

It was NOT ME that had to make an emergency trip to WalMart for cheap undergarments in an unbelievable, "how-in-the-world-could-someone-only-5'3"-wear-this-size?" size.

Then, while trying to dress for church, it was certainly NOT ME who found her maternity top so tight she had to lift said anatomy into position, causing her hand to slip and knock herself in the jaw so hard it was difficult to chew for several hours afterwards.

Thank goodness Captain D's doesn't serve hard fish!

It seemed time for a couple of new Sophie pictures, just on general principle. She is getting so big!

(Can anyone guess what familiar Nashville landmark she is visiting in the picture above?)

Jeremiah 1:5

Some of you know Sophie's struggled with stomach issues lately. This seems to be due to an immature digestive system (GERD, for you medical types, although it hasn't been officially diagnosed), and is almost completely mitigated by elevating the head of her bed (thank goodness!). Saturday night, her mattress was damp from cleaning so she had to sleep on the floor. I didn't anticipate one night making her sick, but sure enough, it did.

She is always amazingly brave and strong when she is sick, and she is EXCELLENT at making it to the toilet or trashcan when necessary. It is enough to make me cry for her.

Early Sunday morning she was in bed with me struggling with her sickness. As I cuddled up to her, she sighed. "When I was just in heaven, I knew I wanted to be with you, Mama."

Wow. How am I so blessed?

Chevy Seats

Andy and Mom F. have been busy on a multi-month project sewing new seats for Andy's Chevrolet. The seats are mostly finished now and awaiting installation.
