Baby in my Tummy

My first kid of the day is a little girl who sometimes misbehaves...like runs away from me or refuses to participate in the required activities, but I love her all the same. One day when she ran away recently, I picked her up and told her not to kick because Ms. Amber has a baby in her tummy.

Today, she asked me (in her highly unintelligible words) if I still had a baby in my tummy. I told her yes and that the baby would be in my tummy for a long time. She asked if she could see it. (She thought if I showed her my stomach there was a like a glass window to see the baby inside.) I told her that I had a picture of the baby in my tummy and showed it to her. It was the best idea I have ever had! She worked so hard saying 20 words so she could look at the picture of my ultrasound for about 30 seconds. She could even identify the baby in the picture!

Later she put her baby doll under her shirt and informed me that she had a baby in her tummy too. She proceeded to tell me that she is having a girl and I am having a boy. I love my job, I always get a laugh!

Becoming a Marlin

One evening while eating dinner at Texas Roadhouse (our usual on Friday nights so we can see Daddy for an hour while he’s working) Gabby saw Olympic swimmers on the television and said I want to do that.  Michael and I have been wanting Gabby to become less fearful of the water and a stronger swimmer so we immediately agreed that becoming a swimmer was a great idea.  Two weeks later I had all of the information needed and we were signed up for the neighborhood swim team.  Little did I know how intense summer swim team would be!
To be allowed on the team you must be capable of swimming across the entire 25 meter pool, there is no time limit and you are allowed to hold on to the rope as much as you need.  Gabby made it across the pool in about 2 minutes, 20 seconds with a lot of encouragement from the coaches and a lot of holding onto the ropes and taking breaks.  I must add that the evaluation was in April and it was cold, but she never even mentioned the temperature of the water the…

Reflections of 2017

Reflecting on this year has made me realize what an intense year it has been.  At the end of each hear I am always hearing people complain about their year.  I reflect and see that our year was on for the books for sure, but I see it as a year of growth and amazing events.  This year has been full of difficult times as well as many blessings.



Throughout this year there have been wonderful events and numerous trying events in our lives. Here are a few of the highlights of the year:









Happy Birthday Grandma!!

Today is Gabby's Grandma's birthday! We were very lucky that we saw Grandma close to her birthday so we could celebrate together.  We all really enjoyed seeing Grandma and Grandpa, especially Gabby.  It took her about 5 minutes to warm up to them, but then it was hugs, kisses, and showing off for the two and a half days they stayed with us.  We celebrated Grandma's birthday with a quiet dinner and a birthday cake; although it was Grandma's birthday cake, I think Gabby thoroughly enjoyed it more than even the birthday girl! Grandma graciously gave Gabby the large white chocolate square with her birthday greeting written on it.  Gabby took large bites into it and LOVED it!




The day they were leaving Gabby and I took Grandma to Chik-Fil-A (to see Gabby in her element) for lunch.  While we all ate our chicken nuggets Gabby grabbed Mommy's drink and took big gulps, because she is too big for a juice box.  Then, once she was bored with her lunch she began waving at each…
