Expecting a Baby Girl

Yes, I know it’s been over a year since I posted, but here I am back again.  It may be yet another year until I post again but hopefully not.  A lot has happened this year.   In June we finally made a permanent move from NC to TN.  We bought a house here in TN even though the one in NC still has not sold.
In January of this year we learned I was expecting and we are now less than a week away from welcoming our daughter into this world.  My C-section is scheduled for the morning of September 22.  The Lord has protected me from the pre-eclampsia I had with William, and my average blood pressure throughout this pregnancy has been 110/70.  This time around I have a complete placenta previa but, by the mercy of the Lord, I have had no hemorrhaging much to the surprise of my OB who expected me to begin to have problems with bleeding at 28 or 30 weeks.   I’ll be 37 weeks this coming Wednesday.
Last week the Dr. did put me on bed rest after I was hospitalized for slight spotting.  He kept me for observation overnight and as everything appeared to be going well sent me home to rest, hence, the updated blog.  If you keep scrolling down, you’ll see pics all the way back from last year and then hopefully up through today.  We will see how far I get.
Will we have a baby today?

My Belly at 36 weeks.  One week before delivery.

Pictures throughout the Year


Watching something on TV.  I love the crossed legs.


The fireman suit is made of flannel.  Its a halloween costume I bought after halloween.  One day in the middle of summer he wore it outside all day long.  He's hot natured to begin with and sweats all the time, but he also loves "snuggly clothes" as he puts it.  Can't figure him out.


Grandma Ayscue dressed him in Papa's boxers


We sent him up to his room to have some quiet time.  Russ went up to tell him he could come out and couldn't find him at first.  Here he is in his closet, snuggled up in his animal bin fast asleep.  He loves really small, cozy places.

These next 3 are actually from September of 2010

Cooking with William

William loves, loves to cook.  I know lots of kids do, but he may be a bit extreme.  Every day he asks me if I’m going to cook dinner and can he help.  If I answer in the affirmative, he willingly drops everything he’s doing, races into the kitchen, gets on his apron, and pulls up the stool.  Cooking shows are one of his favorite things to watch.  We sometimes watch them together after he wakes up from his nap, before I start dinner.   We watch them more often since I’ve been pregnant.  He has been known to sit there watching them for at least an hour.  He has even picked up some of the terminology and mannerisms of the hosts.  The other day he told me, “this is a beautiful dinner mommy”.   Rachel Ray always tries her cooking and goes, “m, m, m”.  At dinner, when he tries a bite, he will often go, “m, m, m”.  That can get a bit annoying.

All the above are from February when we made Valentine cookies
