The Circle of Life

I thought I would do a quick update since I haven't blogged for awhile.

~My Grandpa passed away a few weeks ago. He went in his sleep so it was very peaceful. While I miss him a lot,I'm grateful that he is with my grandma and the rest of his family again. I am thankful for the knowledge that I will see them all again one day.

~On the same day that my grandpa died,I got some other shocking news. I found out I was pregnant! I was so stunned since I had my tubes tied after Camden was born. Apparently this baby was meant to be. I'm due on July 27th,my mom's birthday. One of the first things I did was buy my anti-nausea combo of B6 and unisom. Thank goodness because morning sickness has already started.

~Adam is still looking for a job and we are waiting to get unemployment. Things are pretty tight but we have been blessed in many ways. Some family members are buying a couple of gifts for the kids,we have received food and money and someone is doing the 12 days of Christmas for us. The kids are really excited for Christmas!

~We are moving into my IL's house in 3 weeks. I still have a lot to do so it's pretty overwhelming. In a way it's been nice having Adam home so that he can help out. I think I would prefer a steady income though. :)

Congratulations on being pregnant! Isn't it funny how Heavenly Father has things for us to do sometimes and He won't take "no" for an answer?

I am so happy for you!
There must be a little spirit needing to be here!

Sorry about your Grandpa.

I'm grateful many people are blessing you abundantly..

FYI: Medicaid will pick you RIGHT UP because your pregnant. Get on it... getting my kids on state insurance brought me LOTS of peace. :)

Hope this New Year brings you LOADS of blessings.

Congrats! You're due on my youngest's birthday!

I'm so sorry that I stold your thunder by telling everyone on my blog that you were pregnant. I didn't even think about that until Michelle and Jennifer reamed me out about it.

Well that makes me, your mother and now you that had "surprises." But as I see the results I can't imagine life without you and Michelle. And I'm sure this new little one will be as precious.

I'm glad you're getting help from various sources. It makes it easier to count your blessings.

I could tend the older kids if it would help you get some packing done between Christmas and New Years's, I have all day Tuesday free. Give me a call. Really!

I think it's awesome that you're pregnant, except of course the part about morning (all day) sickness. I hope it's a girl!!!

Good luck with everything!

Steve and Chelle said...

for the record, I did not ream my mom out. I simply told her that she shouldn't blog about someone elses news until they have blogged about it.

And that was really it.

(pshaw. reamed. whatever!)

Stace we're so excited for you!! really! Everyone around me is getting pregnant, it's bound to rub off on me at some point! :)

Stacey, I forgot about reading this post. I hope your move goes ok and that you are out of there soon too, hee hee. Big hugs to you girl.

Michelle said...

Hopefully the move will make things easier for you! Congrats again on the pregnancy! I also do the B6 and Unisom combo, it really does help!
