beautiful, beautiful, beautiful... beautiful boy.


this sweet baby is a little boy.  we are beyond thrilled for another little boy to be joining us in may.

i am almost 25 weeks, and the time is flying by. i can hardly believe it.

baby is well, i am well.

i get terrible leg cramps, so bad my calves are sore for days.  and i want to eat nothing but french fries and cookies and pineapple.  but other than that, all is well in pregnancy land.

we have been adjusting to my new job schedule.  working nights seems well for me.  i am a champion sleeper and am not too tired, and so happy i get to spend more time with my asher.  the rest of my life has found it hard to adjust to the change.  my house is a disaster, fast food has become a regular meal, i keep forgetting to do my school work, and finding a regular rhythm and schedule is desperately needed.  we will start working on that after this week. of course i should have known this would be hard, because i know that my life has a hard time adjusting to changes like this.  i never recovered into a normal routine after having asher, some people find it easy, i did not.  i was just so focused on the fact that i wouldn't be sleeping that it never occurred to me the other adjusting would be even harder... so on we go.


beautiful boy from mr. holland's opus. this scene brings me to tears every time (ugly sobbing tears), and if you haven't seen this movie, you really must watch it... even if only for the father son storyline, it is beautiful.

    Melinda, as the mother of two sons I can tell you that it is a joy. Our sons married lovely ladies and now we have a granddaughter and a grandson. Children are worth all the time and effort you give loving them. They are God's best blessing along with a loving spouse. Praying for you and baby boy Boucher. Asher is in for a treat with a new baby brother. love and prayers, jep
