Last week I had my first ultrasound. The ultrasound went well and showed us a beautful, healthy baby. God is so good! I also "peeked". LOL
We are having our first boy in 14 years!! We are all so excited and looking forward to getting to meet Wilmer. (Named after my Grampa Gartman) I am starting to do some sewing and have already had a package addressed to Wil come from my Mom and Dad with some clothes. There isn't much saved from when Jeremi was a baby, understandably. :) But Wil won't be going naked. Emilie (my 3 yo) is concerned about him being naked right now though. She keeps asking if she can give Wil his clothes and toys and wondering why he isn't born yet. I think she'll love being a big sister.
Also last week, the new Daddy's Little Princess and DLP Organics websites have gone live. I'm so glad to have them done - for now anyway. You can check them out at http://www.daddys-little-princess.com/
Juli earned herself a SPiDer nap for doing her chores above and beyond last week, so I'll be heading to Burger King or McD's with her this noon. "SPiDer" is something I've adapted from my own childhood. It stands for Special Priviledge Day. When I was little, the person with the SPiDer got to sit up front in the car if we went somewhere, dry the dishes while Mom washed (yes this was actually considered a priviledge believe it or not!) and stay up a little later after everyone else went to bed. Mom managed to do this for us weekly, which I find amazing. For my own kids, it has become something to be earned once in a while.
Here is a picture of Juli here wearing her new blouse and skirt that she made herself!
I'm probably going to be losing both of my biggest helpers for the summer to other jobs, though I'd never want them to give up the opportunities they've been given. I sat down this morning and worked out a summer schedule for the rest of the children that I think will work well. The schedule we have now, we've been using for almost a year, which is significant. I am schedule-challenged and this is the first schedule to last more than a day or two! I'm praying the new one will go as well.
Well, that's it. All the news that's fit to print, as they say. :) God bless you and have a wonderful day!
