It's a BOY!

cornerstoneguerra's July 17 2013 album on Photobucket

The Lord has blessed us with another boy.

If you were to ask me, I would say I would like to have another girl but I told myself it isn't want I want... it is whatever God wants. The Lord saw fit to give us another boy. Don't get me wrong, I'm excited to have another boy. The reason I wanted another girl is because I grew up without any sisters, you know? I wanted to do a lot of girly things. I am very thankful the Lord gave me Joanna! Just so you know, I've learned that it is not always what I want or hoped for... it's whatever He sees fit for my family. The fun side of having boys, I like to think of them as being my body guards when they get older. Something like that, crazy I know. I know they'll be daddy's helper in many areas: mowing, driving, all that manly things us women don't do. Heh. See? It's fun to think that way! You know, Peter is already active... I can only imagine when he and his little brother get older. I just might stay fit for life having active boys! ;)

Please pray for me and the baby.

As I went in for my 17 week ultrasound today, the doctor said my baby boy's heart had a calcium spot and showed a slightly larger than normal ventricle or ventricles in the baby's brain. To know 100% for sure if there's something wrong or not, I am recommended to see a specialist. I am really scared. The doctor also said it may resolve on its own and that it is probably nothing, or it could be a symptom of a chromosomal defect. I know I will love him no matter but I'm still scared and full of emotions. I just want my baby to be healthy.

Experiences, stories and definitely prayers appreciated.

Finally, set up an appointment...

...for my prenatal care. First off, Praise the Lord! It is usually hard to set up an appointment to see the doctor as a new patient. I have experienced this when I was looking for a Pediatrician for both my kids. They wouldn't accept new patient or out of state patient for whatever reasons. My first call, I was a bit nervous. I did pray a short prayer and did my devotion before calling. I was happy to know that they'll be able to see me next week, Wednesday, July 17th at 9:30am. The only problem I have now is to find someone to watch my kids. I just texted the Pastor's wife to ask... but we'll see. Even if she can't, I'll just take my kids with me. I'll buy some Tootsie pops or Tootsie rolls just to keep them calm and occupy eating candies. Not a good choice but hey it will work. I just know!

It is Chick-fil-A's Cow Appreciation Day! Because Matt didn't want to go to Chick-fil-A for a FREE entree just for wearing the hat, or even a FREE combo for dressing like a cow... we just took pictures at home. What a total waste! We could have gotten FREE food!!

Grandma, next time... we'll go with you because I know you'll take us! We'll have some fun, what do you say?

Photo Album from May 6 thru July 8, 2013

You'll first see a picture of the kids drinking hot milk in the wee hours of the morning. Then, there's a few pictures with daddy, the kids enjoyed the letter magnets stuck to daddy's eye sockets. He seemed to be enjoying the fun. Of course, I had to take a picture of Peter eating spagetthi, he was a total mess! Joanna did good though, not as bad as Peter's. Joanna found a good use of our laundry basket. She likes to sort of hide herself in there, you know? I gave Joanna her candy necklace and she loved it. I had to teach her how to eat it, she's a quick learner... Peter then wanted some. Next time, buddy... you'll have your own boyish necklace. A good thing, Joanna shared her candy. The last few photos were taken at a friend's house. We had dinner and then fellowship. The guys had the most fun, playing pool. We joined them a few minutes before heading home.

My pregnancy: Week 15

I know you've been itching to know what I look like by now, right? RIGHT. Haha! Well, here I am at 15 weeks pregnant. I am feeling the same as I did when I was pregnant with both of my babies. No morning sickness. However, about a couple of weeks ago, I was tired and all I wanted to do was sleep. My energy is back though. I haven't felt the baby move yet but it won't be long! Also, I plan on finding out the gender of my baby hopefully the end of this month or early next month. We'll see! I'll be sure to keep you posted, as always.

Independence Day Retreat at the Bill Rice Ranch: July 4th, 2013

My family had the opportunity to attend the Independence Day Retreat at the Bill Rice Ranch in Tennessee. Even though our truck has its problem, we took our chances. Just after Matt told Pastor Ray Warren about our whereabouts, he offered us to take his car. Yep, just like that and we didn’t even ask. What a blessing! To me, when I think of it, that’s pretty impressive because I don’t know of many people who would loaned their car (besides family) to take a day trip… especially to another state.
