I know many are anxiously awaiting some news from our doctor appointment today… and thankfully, the baby looks very healthy–the brain and the heart, the kidneys, the skin, the spine, the abdomen, the cord…all look good.  Due date is still on track. And after a little maneuvering, we got to see…..

That indeed, the baby is a……………….

Oh January, where are you going?

Phew. It’s been a real tough couple of weeks, but I survived the Hebrew class…and the spring semester is now under way. (So basically homework-o-rama for me.)
I promised some photos on the last few weeks… and there are so many more than these, but this is what I have at the moment.
Here’s Grandma Betty aka “Nana” with her two great grandchildren, Allison and Vaden. Two more on the way!

And Vaden likes to grab Allison’s head.

Here’s adorable Allison. We got to see her for the first time in December and she and her mommy and daddy came for a few weeks to spend. She is so precious.

And then the other day we got SNOW! It was a perfect amount- Vaden thought it was funny. We thought he looked funny. Teletubby?

It’s been a while… and I fear this post is not going to be a relief. Because that’s what I am in need of–relief. This has been a whirlwind of a season: from Randy graduating, the holidays, my grandfather getting progressively worse, my winter intensive class starting (in biblical Hebrew!), Grandpa dying, my birthday, and not to mention being pregnant and caring for Vaden. Phew. I feel like I haven’t really been home much. (Well, because I haven’t.) This Hebrew class ends next week, so I will probably postpone blogging until then. I do have lots of photos to post from the holidays and such, but they will have to wait. Until after we take down the Christmas tree. (yikes!)
Also, next week we have the big ultrasound and hopefully get to see the baby’s gender!
So until then… thanks for your patience!

After a long struggle with many illnesses, my Grandpa Babe went home today at 2:15pm. He will be missed by so many. Funeral service will be on Saturday, January 10. Thanks for your prayers for all the family.
