We're Having a....

We had our ultrasound on Thursday and we are having a GIRL!!!!! Her name is Azalea-Mae Faith. Azalea was my grandma (my dad's mom) Mae is Chad's grandma's middle name and Faith was my Mom's Mom's maiden name. Faith is also a reminder of my Mom's faith in God during her unthinkable battle. She had unwavering faith that God would heal her...and he did! Also I wanted to let all of you who are praying for my sweet husband know that his appointment is October 15th. It is not for a cat scan but to see a neurologist who is a movement disorder specialist. The shaking in his hand has gotten better but it is still there. Please continue to pray, as much for our nerves as for his health!

Our Life These Days

Forewarning: I have tried to seperate paragraphs several times now but blogger keeps putting them all together. I don't have time to mess with it so it will have to stay this way. In just eight days we will have our 20 week ultrasound. We will find the gender of our baby. It is still undecided if we will share our news with anyone. We always have but we are thinking this time it might add an element of fun. We'll see. I am not very good at keeping secrets. At any rate I am anxious to find out, and to be sure all is well with baby. In other baby related news Greysen got his first tooth last week. He is the first of our babies to ever get a tooth that early. He was also the most miserable teether we have encountered. He is very spoiled and cries nearly every time he is put down. It is actually quite sad to see. Tristin and Bella are enjoying school. We had a lot of fun last week. Lots and lots of reading but as I've mentioned before we really enjoy that. He seems to enjoy the level of work he is doing now. Much more of a challenge for him. Bella is enjoying drawing along side of us, singing and listening to the stories. We had some scheduling issues the first couple of days but we rearranged our schedule and things have now fallen into place nicely. Hudsyn is doing some serious talking these days. She will be two on the 28th. She is just the most precious little person. Very fiesty and demanding but so loving and sweet. I absolutely adore her. Kait likes her new teacher. She seems wonderful. Last year that wasn't the case so this year we are very thankful. She has had a rough summer. Her Dad and his wife seperated and he and K are living at his parents house. K and her step-Mom had a hard time getting along. If you know K she is pretty easy to get along with and it hurt her very much. Even still K wants them all to be back together again. It is very sad, for all parties involved. She has a little girl who is two years younger than K and they were close. I am not sure what the outcome of their marriage will be but please keep them in prayer. Neither of them believe in God but from conversations K overheard her setp-Mom appears to be pretty angry with this person she doesn't belive in. Speaking of things to keep in prayer, Chad's tendonitis is better but now his arm shaking. It is called a resting tremor. He has to go to the University of Toledo to meet with a neurologist for a cat scan. I am not going to go into the details of what they are ruling out but it isn't pretty. There is a good chance it could be nothing. As of right now he is off work until at least mid October. We still don't have an appointment date because it is very hard to get into that neurologist. We would really appreciate it if you would please pray with us that all tests will come back normal. I will update you as soon as we find anything out.
