Work & Play (& Rest) 9/26

We call him our animal-whisperer.  Scenes like this are incredibly common and the cat sleeps on his bed many, many nights.  Not a lot of 4 year old boys I've ever met that can do this for extended periods of time.

One Week At A Time

Untitled

From the moment we were first admitted to the hospital from the emergency room, almost two weeks ago now, we were told we needed to take things one hour at a time.

Job number one...stop bleeding.

Don't go into labor.

Check.

Then it became one day at a time.

Should Be Versus Am

Today I am 19 weeks and 3 days pregnant.

Tomorrow, I should be having a regular anatomy ultrasound and check up with my OB scheduled.  The OB who delivered Kenna and has been my doctor ever since.   The OB who listened to my gut when I told him something was off with Logan and ran extra tests and encouraged us through our VBAC.  Who I trust beyond measure to take good care of me and my babies.  Who was full of emotion telling me of the seriousness of my situation when he admitted me to the hospital early last Thursday morning.

I am canceling that appointment.

Our Miracle in The Making

I have been trying to figure out the *right* words for this post for several days now.  I made a brief update on the Work and Play Facebook page, but I know not all of my readers use Facebook or are necessarily online and checking it often.

Wednesday was a perfectly normal day.  Before bed, I uploaded our pictures from the day for our weekly post, worked on more book editing, and finished up some Master's capstone project pieces.  I felt great all day, even getting on the treadmill for a short walk in the early afternoon.  I had no reason to think that anything strange was going on.

A few hours later, around 11:00/11:30 I woke up mostly because Lucie woke up.  Tim was just going to bed and after rolling around in bed for a few minutes I noticed that I felt really wet.

The biggest news this week has been a cursive explosion.  We've always encouraged cursive side by side with print, but this week Caleb and Kylee started practicing enthusiastically and even doing some labeling in cursive.  Logan, Kylee, and Caleb all used the cursive writing boards on an almost daily basis.

BookLook Review: Sarah's Choice by Rebecca St. James


I selected this book for review before I realized it was based on a movie of the same story, so I had already seen the movie before I read the book.  A dangerous combination for any review!  Nonetheless, I have nothing but good things to say about both!
