Popcorn Dinner

We've had popcorn for dinner the past two nights.  Collier's Favorite!  I did make him eat some fruit first but then it was popcorn after that.  I am sure I deserve Mother of the Year!

I've been sick and still not quite up to my old self yet.  Praying that I'll get over this crap soon!  I've been out of work for two days and am really ready to feel better and certainly ready for some sleep.

My Mom and Dad are super duper stars and have done more than I ever could have asked while I've am been down and out.  Justin has been in and out of town and their extra help has been above and beyond.  They are rock stars....because they have also had some of this sick crap and have still been more help than I could have imagined.

Collier seems to be feeling better.  He is certainly sleeping better, but has complained a little about one of his ears still.  I have a feeling we'll be going back to double check and be sure they are both clearing up like they are really supposed to!  

The weather is crazy around here.  Hot days and cold days merging wonder we're sick.  Collier wore shorts and short sleeve shirt on Monday.  Will probably wear the same tomorrow... Has anyone noticed that it is January!  

I want to start doing a weekly video of Collier to sort of better document changes and stages.  I wanted to post it every Tuesday but I am having a hard time getting him to cooperate with the video camera.  So, we'll see if that will actually pan out or not.  Who knows.

Being sick I haven't done half of what needs to be done for the nursery.  It will get done.  I am sure of it...well, with the help of Gods perfect timing. 

Collier loves his scooter and rides it all through our house!  It makes him happy and makes us laugh because he rides fast and turns corners a little faster than you would expect.

I just finished reading Kisses from Katie and it is inspiring, touching and simply amazing.  She is such a wonderful reflection of Christ and of His love for us and for EVERY person around us.  I have tried to change my perspective and be more aware of those around me and their needs and less about my needs [I have failed miserably this week being has been all about me....but even in that I have tried to praise Him because even though it seems horrible that I am preggo and sick and can't take anything...He feels my pains and He knows exactly what I am going through.  It is in these times that we are to turn to Him and rely on His strength and that is what I am TRYING to do].  But it really is an awesome book and I really recommend that you read it.  If you don't already read her blog....go and read it!  You will be inspired.  She is amazing.  

Sorry that this is SOOO Random.  My brain isn't quite working right and maybe I'll get back on track soon...Although honestly it may be after March before that will happen.   I just thought I would share what we've been up to lately.
