3 weeks and counting...

Well, Hayes and the team (24/7) left yesterday at about noon to head to Peru for a little over 3 weeks :( It is the first time since Hayes has been the Director of 24/7 that I have not gone on the overseas trip with the team so it was a little weird saying good-bye and not going with them. BUT....I don't think that sleeping on boats and in hammocks in villages would suit an almost 7 month pregnant woman too well!! So they are on this one without me! It is so hard to say goodbye but I am so excited to see what God is going to do in them and through them while they are there. I am already missing my hubby but it usually gets rough about a week and a half in....but thankfully at that point I will be heading to the beach with some girlfriends so that should be a nice break and a lot of fun!! 

We went to the doctor on Monday before Hayes left so that he will not have to miss an appointment and Cohen is doing well! His heartbeat was 164 i think? Something like that...and I also passed my glucose test! Praise the Lord!! For anyone who knows me, you know I LOVE sweets and I believe that if I was told I could not eat sugar for the rest of the pregnancy I may have thrown a fit right there in the doctors office! :) But, I passed with a 116 so I was really happy! Also, I saw another doc this time and as he said "well, you are measuring a little bigger than normal, but nothing to worry about." GREAT!!!! hahahaha I have a feeling I am not getting a tiny baby! Also, the cashier at Bruno's asked me yesterday if I was about to deliver and I politely responded, "No, I still have about 13 weeks...thanks though!" I guess I am huge! :) Whatever, I have a sweet little baby boy inside of me that I can not wait to hold, cuddle, and kiss!!! I can't wait!!

Well, I'm sure I will update again before Hayes gets home!

25 weeks and registered...

Hayes and I went and registered today and was fun and tiring. We spent probably 2 1/2 hours or so in Babies R Us and a large portion of that was spent watching Hayes try to figure out how to pack up the pack and play! It was humorous! He would not give up..and of course he figured it out! It was fun though and a little surreal to think that we will have a little guy here soon that will be using all of that stuff!! So exciting! We were looking at car seats and it hit Hayes, he said "oh my gosh baby, we will have a little boy in that car seat soon!" he got so cute and excited! Crazy to think how our life is going to change but I am very excited to meet Cohen and see who he looks like and see what his personality is going to be. 

So, Hayes leaves a week from tomorrow for 22 days on a mission trip to Peru. This is the first spring trip that 24/7 has taken since we have been on staff with them that I have not been on...and that means this is the longest I will have been without pray hard!!! I am not so good at being away from him for any extended period of time but I am going to try to be a big girl and deal with it well (we will see how that goes). I am going to try to keep busy and I am going to the beach for almost a week of that time, so that should help a lot! 

So, as you know Mother's Day was yesterday and was exciting to have a first Mother's Day. In some people's mind, my first Mother's Day will be next year, but like I said to a few that said that to me yesterday, "Well then whose is he?" pointing to my stomach. Last time I checked I am as much of a mother right now as anyone is. I am carrying Cohen ( a living human being) 24/7, I am incubating him, helping him grow, feeding him, and spending lots of QT with just him and I am pretty sure I am already a mother! And my sweet husband had me some beautiful flowers and a very sweet note waiting when I woke up yesterday morning!!! It was fun!!!

Well, I guess that is all of the updates for now!!!!
