That's pretty much all I have to say about how relaxing our weekend was! We lounged by the pool, rested, slept in, rested some more, read, and grilled. SO. NICE.
I do love long weekends with my hubby. I don't know how one extra day off with him seems like a whole vacation, but we just love it! Thanks, Mom and Dad, for letting us stay at the "Hall Resort" while you were gone! It was the best!
I'm off to my last day or two of work in the morning. Can't believe I'm finally done working. I'm sure that sounds weird, but it has been a long time coming. Three years ago I quit full-time teaching with the plan of getting pregnant and becoming a mommy soon. That didn't happen the first year, so I went back to work. The next year I was pregant, and I was sure I was done. Then we lost Jonathan, and reluctantly, but necessary for my sanity, I went back to work. Two years later, and I'm finally at the point of being "done" again. I'm just so very excited about this, and I appreciate your continued prayers that this coming fall, I will be staying home. Getting ready for my baby boys to make their appearance. No pregnant mom should have to have the thought, "I hope I get to keep this baby." It just isn't normal...but after 4 miscarriages and a stillborn baby, that thought is quite frequent in my mind. BUT...I'm trusting God that His plan for my life is perfect! I can hardly wait to meet my boys, hold them in my arms, hear them screaming in the middle of the night...I am believing every day, even through the hard thoughts, for this to be my reality!
In response to the Jack and Will sounds like "Jack and Jill" comment...yes, I've thought of this. No it doesn't bother me. We can say Will and Jack. We can say Jack and Will. My thought is that just about any name can get associated with something that might remind you of something. Twin names are hard to pick out because they have to go together. Our boys will be themselves, and the names Jackson and William are special to us...plus we like how the nicknames still sound like strong names. So if people bug them, they'll have each other to stand strong with. I have a feeling, however, that our boys will be strong, tall, confident boys like their daddy, with such a sweet personality that no one will want to make fun of them! So that's what I think about that! =)
FYI...there are two more blogs below this one. More to come, but my computer still isn't back! Argh. Oh well...soon! And here is my 15 week picture as well. Can't believe this Thursday will be 16 weeks--it is really flying by!!
