We won!

Cole had his first soccer game today. He loved it, but we have some work to do! I was just proud he wasn't out there picking flowers or looking for airplanes, so I think he did great!

He did engage the ball a few times, and actually kicked it. Every time he kicked it he would turn around and look at Mom and Dad and say "I kicked it!" Then at the end of the game, all the parents put their arms up and make a tunnel for the kids to run through, and that was the best part of the game for Cole. Oh well, he is just 4 you know (wink). We did win the game, 9-6, with two players from last season making most of our goals. He is one of 2 brand new soccer players, the rest of the boys played in the spring on the same team.

I am feeling better, no headaches and such anymore. The dr. upped my insulin doses at night as my blood sugar is staying too high no matter what I eat at night. He said once we get it stabilized now, it will be good until about 24 weeks, when my blood sugar will just naturally go up because of the pregnancy and I will to up the doses again.

I go back Tuesday for another sonogram. Dr. Miller wants to make sure my uterus is turning like it is supposed to. I think it must be fine, because my pants are getting too tight and everything must be really loose from being pregnant before. My belly is sticking out a little earlier than I remember with Cole. Of course, I am also about 20 pounds lighter than when I was pregnant with Cole too.

I am posting pics of Cole at soccer practice, and at his game today. His team is the Raptors, their colors are royal blue, black, and white.

Love to all,

Fun, fun, fun!

We have had a bang up weekend! We drove to Waco late afternoon Friday to pick up a 2000 GMC 3/4 ton pickup we bought. We had dinner with my mom and came back home. We made it home by 11pm. Saturday, we went to the Villages Waterpark for Tanner Johnson's Birthday party, Brookshire's Wildlife Museum for Meadow Ellis' Birthday party, and Bergfeld Park for Day for Kids put on by Boys and Girls Clubs. Then we came home and crashed! Cole and I were very tired. We plan to go the East Texas State Fair on Sunday after church for $1 rides.

Daddy spent the day finishing our house pad on the land. 20 loads of dirt and we are in business. Hopefully we will hear from the title company this week to close on our loan and we can get started. Just waiting for a survey.

My blood sugars are evening out now that I am on insulin. Now if I can just stay away from the junk food. It is hard when you are on the run all the time.

I LOVE MY JOB! It is wonderful helping kids find books, and talking to kids about books they are reading. When I was a teacher, I never had time to just talk to the kids about stuff like that. What a change. I definitely made the right move. My principal is pretty great too. So far she hasn't said no to me yet!

I am having technical issues between my camera and my laptop all of a sudden, so I apologize for the lack of new pics. Hope to have some added this week.

So, that visit to the Endocrinologist went exactly like I thought it would. He started me on insulin injections 4 times a day and checking my blood sugar 8 times a day. Definitely not fun, for the next 6 months. But the good news is that it is not as bad as when I had to do it with Cole. Then I had to use actual syringes and measure the doses, it hurt like the dickens and such. But they have come a long way in 5 years, and they have these little injection pens now. The needles that fit on them are tiny and I can't even feel them going in. Much easier to deal with. If you have Diabetes, you should definitely get set up with Liberty Medical. You know, you see them on tv all the time with that old man (can't remember his name but he was an actor and I always liked him). Anyway, got set up with them and got all my supplies paid for through my insurance. It was denied at Brookshire's and it was expensive. Turns out my prescription drug plan doesn't cover it because my major medical insurance covers it, but pharmacies can't file that way. Learn something new every day!
I have taken some pics of the land and will try to post them this weekend in a separate post. We are blessed because Ike has downgraded to a tropical storm finally, and we have been in our trailer all day and haven't even lost power. Lots of rain and wind, but nothing serious.
My dad lives in Alvin, 20 miles from Galveston, and he rode out the storm, but thankfully there was no major damage to his home or his service station in Pearland. They are without power as are the millions of other Houston residents but he has two generators and he could use them to pump more gas from his gas station if he needed to, to keep the fridge and freezer running. He didn't stay open long enough Thursday to sell out of gas so he still has some if needs to use it. So many others did not fare so well. My prayers go out to them. That's all for now.

Baby Adair

Well, I went to see Dr. Miller Tuesday, Sept. 2nd. He did a vaginal sonogram and I got to see Baby Adair and hear her heartbeat. [of course we don't know it is a girl, I am just using the power of positive thinking:-)] Everything looks good for now. He did say that I am 9 weeks in according to the size of the baby. I will go back in 4 weeks for another vaginal sonogram to make sure my uterus did the turn around it is supposed to do, which it hasn't started doing yet. Who knows what that means.

This is the sonogram picture. I know it doesn't look like anything, but if you look at the big round thing in the middle of the big black oval, that is the baby's head.
I will go to see Dr. Arce, the endocrinologist, next Tuesday, Sept. 10th. I will keep you "posted!"

Oh, and here is a pic of Cole playing his video game in our new digs! Love to all, Misty

We've moved!

Well, it is Monday night, and we are officially Rock Hill residents now. We left the keys in our old house, and we have moved into the travel trailer on our land. was hard work, but we managed not to fight once. Cole is very excited, but he keeps asking when is our new house going to be built. He just doesn't have a good concept of time yet. Of course, I am in a hurry, too! Wyatt has been hard at work making things livable around here. We bought a cargo trailer and he has installed water and electricity so that I can wash and dry laundry, and keep our freezer and fridge which will be a big help. I am kind of glad to go back to work tomorrow so I can rest!
I have a dr.'s appt tomorrow and I will get to hear the baby's heartbeat. I am kind of excited, because when I was pregnant with Cole, Dr. Miller had predicted I had a boy by the speed of the heartbeat. So maybe I will get another prediction! I will post after I visit the Dr. I will visit the Endocrinologist Sept. 10th to find out what they want to do about my high blood sugar. I am feeling a bit better, I guess everything has evened out again since I have been off the other meds. That's all for now.
