Read At Your Own Risk sit down and blog (to vent, to pour forth one's soul in the form of the written word, to inform, to share, to inspire). Just in case you are wondering, I did not consult Webster's dictionary for that definition. About this my own doing, there are more people viewing my random ramblings than there used to be. I have mixed feelings about this. I feel this may limit the scope of topics and issues that I may voice my opinion about, may reduce the amount of ravings and rantings that I expose cyberspace to. Should I just go ahead and blog about things as I always have, or should I be more guarded about the degree of openness I employ? (ok, I'm starting to sound like my English Lit majoring brother).I pray for the utmost wisdom as I proceed, but I feel I must warn you: read at your own risk :).

I apologize for the lack of structure in my writings. I always got a low grade on my English papers when it came to that element. So deal with it :). Just pay close attention and my subject-hopping will make sense.

First of all, I feel that a good "brag time" about my children is way overdue. Here goes:
  • He has the cutest, flirtiest, most michevious grin this side of the Mason-Dixon Line. It melts my heart like butter (and anyone else he flashes it to).
  • He combines that smile with a husky, "Gimmee hug" and "Gimmee sugars" and I am a sure goner!
  • He is a musician in the making--sleeping with his drumsticks and playing the guitar constantly.
  • He is making major progress with pottying.
  • He loves his little sister passionately, and displays his love with many hugs and kisses, although his affections are often not readily accepted or returned.
  • He minds really well and seeks to please (although he does have his moments like any other child).


  • Where Elijah is shy, she never meets a stranger. She loves attention and will "show out" if she thinks you will give her the opportunity :).
  • She loves to sing and dance.
  • She is very smart, very good at communicating her feelings.
  • She is a little stingy with her loving, but when she does give it, she gives it with gusto!
  • She is the cutest thing ever with her hair in pigtails and her blue jean skirt on.


Since I have already been so lengthy, I think I will save the rest of the stuff on my mind for a later date. It's good to be back!

Hey, y'all! I finally got a chance to sit down and blog a little, without three little munchkins crowding my lap and hogging the keyboard :) yes, munchkin #3 is beginning to make her presence known abdominally, if you know what I mean. My doctor's appointment last week revealed that I am only 12 weeks and 3 days gestation. I thought I was soo much further along than that. There's where poor documentation will get you. They did an ultrasound, and this little booger is active with a capital A! It was bouncing off the walls and its arms and legs were just a-gettin' it (can you tell I've been in Bama?). Then all of a sudden it threw its arms back and fell asleep and would NOT wake back up no matter what we did! So we couldn't really tell if it was a boy or a girl. But it was precious, either way. There's something about seeing it there on the screen that makes it so real and just makes me give a sigh of relief. I will go back in two weeks because Dr. McKeiver wants to keep a close eye on me with all the cramping and stuff that has been going on. Did I mention that I miss my husband painfully? And it's only been a week. We have been discussing going somewhere for a weekend when he gets back, just the two of us. Any suggestions, anyone? Please pray for us, my Dad has the flu! He has quarantined himself off in his room, and we are hoping and praying it stays back there with him! To all of my Texas people, I miss y'all!!! BIG SNIFF! Hope y'all are missing me too and keeping an eye out for my husband ;0).
More later!Amy
