Video of Alayna singing and the boys playing

This is for you, Aunt Epsie - nothing fancy or too terribly entertaining, but I think they're pretty cute :) Well, the video wouldn't upload so copy the link below to your browser:

And here's a shot of baby #4. 16 weeks and KICKING! I like this part. I haven't thrown up in a few days. I THINK I'm out of the woods.

November update!

We're long overdue for an update. Did I used to have time to blog?!

Happy Birthday wishes to my husband today! This last year has been full of challenges for him and our family. I am happy to say, the Lord has been so faithful and we're doing great despite the challenges. David still has no official diagnosis and no real relief from the pain or fatigue. But he's working and doing the best he can with the energy he does have. Thanks to suggestions from a couple of people who read this blog there are a couple more things we can try once we get the current bills paid.

I'm still throwing up, but we hit 15 weeks this week. Hopefully the turning point is any minute! Teaching kindergarten and preschool keeps me busy when me head's not in the toilet.

The kids are getting so big. Alayna's talking like crazy. She's started putting "y" on the end of everything though. Like "booky, cuppy, dressy, nappy." I don't know what to do with that except talk to her like a normal human. She also loves to dress up. A dear friend of mine passes down her kids clothes to me. I opened up a sack today and found the "outfit" that Alayna put together in the picture above. She's so creative :)

Pierce has been a little traumatized by all the vomiting. He's pretty sure the baby is going to come out of my mouth!

Anyhow - I'm still here and I'll try to be a little more faithful with the updating of the chaos at this house!
