And it begins...at 6 weeks

It always amazes me at how fast our babies grow within each week! Isn't my baby cute? ;o)


The symptoms of pregnancy have finally hit! I am nauseated like no ones business, and my hormones are completely out of whack! Although I'm not complaining. I'm thankful that it's just nauseousness instead of full out kneeling at the throne! And I've learned to control my hormones (most of the time) haha.

My cravings right now are nothing but fresh veggies like salads, cucumbers, green beans. YUM!

As always, with all of my pregnancies, I can't wait to feel this baby move inside me for the first time!! That is my all time favorite part.

"A baby is God's opinion that the world should go on".

I honestly love being pregnant! Sure, there is the whole first 3 months of nauseousness and never eating(for me I don't throw up, and I count myself as very lucky). Other then that, why do I have reason to not like it? I am carrying a precious spirit that Heavenly Father entrusted ME with!

I have mixed emotions right now mostly because my mom never gets excited that we get pregnant! I guess we need to be millionaires to have kids! It's kind of disappointing that she doesn't support me fully, but I am so very thankful that I have a loving, supportive husband who puts my mind at ease about what my mom thinks!

Right now, I really don't have any symptoms. I don't eat as much, and my boobs hurt...oh, and I'm getting upset at the easiest of things! Today I was at my highest level of emotions...

We are so very happy to be adding an addition to our precious little family. I have my first appt. Jan. 25th and can't wait to see how that goes.

Talents


I have come to realize lately that I am in love with playing the piano! Sure, I'm no Mozart, or anything close! I've played the piano since I was 8, but was never really taught the right techniques. I was turned off by piano playing because I was never taught correctly.

It wasn't until I met Matthew that this all changed. I knew from the moment he played the piano for me over the phone that this was who I was going to marry (well...add in some other experiences...). He was the best piano player I'd ever heard up until that point and was awestruck at how amazing he was at it.

We then got married and moved out to Oklahoma and took some college courses together. One of which was piano. Dr. Hyunsoon Whang was my piano teacher who was/is one of the most fiery people I've met. I progressed so fast in that 2 months of being there. I was playing stuff I never thought I would play! I continued, and still continue to better my skills on the piano.

The Lord has given me a talent and I need to use it to the best of my ability. I am thankful for that talent. I love the piano and how much peace it brings to my soul and the peace it brings into our home.

Welcome 2010!


I can't believe time goes by so fast. May of 2004 I married my sweetheart, we got pregnant and Feb of 2005 I had Gabriel. Gabriel will be starting kindergarten come the end of this year and it doesn't seem possible, but it's inevitable.

Matt will continue his education with this being his second semester of Graduate School. He will soon be teaching college, his dream job. Right now he is teaching piano and voice, which he shines at.

I made a promise to the kids that I will read to them every night. I used to read to them, but not every night, which they deserve. I already see improvements, especially with Brooke, she will read the book back to me.
I cut the alphabet out of really pretty paper and laminated it so Gabriel and Brooke can organize them. They love it. I've made sort of a "New Year Resolution" to teach them as much as I can this year so Gabriel can enter Kindergarten well prepared.

2010 has so much to offer for our family. I can't wait to see what it has in store.
