Pictures of the day

This is Isaac's "new" car seat. It was installed in the burb this evening. Kind of makes it feel like he is coming soon :-)
Thanks Stef!!
Just because she asked for her picture to be taken!
My feet after their pedicure pampering yesterday. Kendall loves the color. Wish I could get down to paint her toes!
Benny has been wanting to make our bed frame for quite awhile but hasn't had the time. He went with a quick HGTV solution for the time being. He made these padded headboards to last us until he can make our 4 poster.
Ben also wanted to clean up the garage so he built a new storage overhead. It is so nice to have the lumber up off of the floor! The garage looks great!

Raining on my parade!

LOL. We got off on time for our library play group only to get there to have it pouring down rain. I decided that we were going to have a fun day in spite of it. We made it a game where we "ran" into the library. (I use that term loosely since I don't know that running would be a good description of what I was doing :-) ) We did get wet on the way in only to discover our friends playing in the rain by the door. Not to be outdone, Kendall joined Gabriel to splash for awhile before group started. (Tamara and I stayed right inside the door....both being preggers and not wanting to spend the hour soaked! Hopefully, Isaac will hold out so that we can go and get wet again at Gabriel's bday party this weekend!)
Kendall had a great time so I was very glad that I made the effort to go! When we left, the expression raining cats & dogs was putting it mildly! Lucky for me, Kendall played along again & had fun minus 2 stops to say "my hair, my hair!" We came home and dried off then both went down for a nap. I am now getting ready for some not so fun mommy duties....dishes, laundry, vaccuming, etc.

Trying for a sunny day!

I discovered that it has become very easy to be VERY GRUMPY with all of the discomforts of pregnancy weighing down on you....so I am trying to be lighthearted today for mine, Kendall, and Benny's sake. (Well and for our viewing audience as well!!)
I started out the day by looking at the beautiful gifts that we got yesterday from our friends, Jennifer and Ray, and knowing how lucky we are to have family & friends that care enough to stitch such personal gifts for us.
Thanks guys!! They are beautiful!

I then started to get ready to take Kendall to laptime at the library when I realized as I was putting my charm bracelet on that I hadn't shown those of you that sent me birthday money what your generous gift has purchased! I have wanted to start a charm bracelet for about a year now and finally it is under motion! I know that it is hard to see but there is a picture of Kendall, a favorite pic of Ben & I, a cross, an RN, and a helicoptor. (Ben got me the helo it wasn't part of my purchase!) I am anxious to add a pic of Isaac to it soon :-)
We also wanted to thank the Olson family for our baby gift! I love the swim trunks and can't wait to see him in them next summer :-) There was definately a Hawaiian theme with that... did Chad have anything to do with picking them out?
Well if I am going to get us to storytime on time I had better close this out for awhile. Stay tuned for pictures of the crafts that my better half has been working on!

Grey hair

Ben is not the only one who is going to be getting grey hair from our new son......
Saturday afternoon I started to feel chilled alternating with hot flashes & like a good nurse I ignored it thinking it was either hormones talking or that I was getting sick. (Ben is on antibotics for a cough and sore throat) The cold chills and hot flashes continued into Sunday. Being the reasonable individual that I am.....I decided to tough it out and go to church, sunday school, & tried to get a nap in before I took my temperature to realize that I had a bad fever 101.4 here at the house.
My temp along with the constant back pain took us to the labor deck on Sunday afternoon. They monitored me for awhile, took another urine, and gave me some tylenol for the fever. When we first got there I was having braxton-hicks contractions regularly every 6-7 minutes which lead to an examination.
We are now standing at 50% effacement, almost 2 cm dilated, and my cervix is blottable. (I am not sure what the blottable is and since most of my nursing texts are packed away in storage I am just out of the loop.)
I am feeling pretty decent today so we are going to try to meet Stef for lunch and possibly go to Barnes and Noble for story time depending on how long it takes for us to get ready!

Not sleeping....

Yeah, so here I am at 3 something in the morning surfing the Internet again. The past few days (only the last 5 or 6) I have been getting up somewhere in the the vicinity of 2 a.m. to 4 a.m. I am just uncomfortable, unable to sleep, and unwilling to disturb Ben. In having this plethora of free time, I have found another blog site.... mom-101 that I found an interesting post on. (Lots of interesting posts but this one in particular)
Many of you have been asking us about our plans for future children. My standard answer has been "the jury is still out" I would love another little girl but I just don't know if I have another pregnancy left in me. Jump to the other blog site......
The owner of it was talking about being terrified that she was pregnant for the third time and she said something that just made me laugh (quietly of course so I don't wake up my family!)
"I did not make a particularly good baby transport system, ....." "and the feelings of being fat and slow and stupid and ugly and irrelevant."
Yeah I am rambling but it is early and I haven't slept all that much!
So the jury is still out & we will see a few years down the road if I am ready to be a baby transport system again.

Bring the rain.....

Since I have been on bedrest, praying to get to where this little bundle will be safe I have been doing A LOT of tv watching, reading, and web surfing. Yesterday I found this blog and felt compelled to share it with you guys. I have it as a link on my favorites under "Bring the rain" but the actual site is
http://audreycaroline.blogspot.com/
I cannot tell you how many tears I have cried reading this since I found it and the absolute amazement & admiration of this family. You will have to go further back in the blog to see the entire story and it is well worth it. It is a great reminder of how precious life is and how nothing is certain. I can only pray for this family and know that they have a faith that cannot be rocked no matter how it is tested.

OB update



Some words and images may not be for everyone!
I went for the first time to the Henderson Naval Clinic yesterday. (They have put all of the midwives out in town due to the busy nature of the OB clinic on base. We will still deliver aboard Camp Lejeune)I must say that my experience there was great. It has been no secret that I haven't been happy with the care this time around but I had a mid-wife that was very informative and most of all listened to me.
Let's see.....I had a Group Beta strep test done (those of you that have recently been preggers know how fun those are!!) and a urine culture. Due to the fact that I had to have the strep test, the midwife didn't want to do a pelvic exam so I am not sure if I have progressed any in that area. She wants me to stay on 2 more solid days of bedrest (today and tomorrow) then I may go back to my normal activities & if Isaac decides to make his grand appearance then it is all right. She also gave me some exercises (not to be completed until off bed rest) to help with the back pain and contractions.
I think that my mood was much improved knowing that the end of bed rest is in sight and that the chances of Isaac being healthy are pretty good. She estimated that right now he is a shade over 6 pounds. (Seeing that we have 4 weeks until my due date I hope that I go early because I don't want him to be huge!!) His heart rate was at 140 bpm and he is still bucking at anyone poking and prodding him.
So glad that we had an answer to a lot of prayers yesterday!
Kendall has been such a good girl esp. since we haven't been able to be active like usual. Yesterday, she enjoyed being at Kidz Bizz while I was at my MD appt and then she had a blast helping Ben shuck some corn. I can't believe that we are at an age that she likes corn on the cob and can eat it by herself! Ben has continued to be a big help & so has the shop that he is in right now. They have been super flexible and helpful!



To Grammy and Pappy yesterday!
And to Uncle Dave and Aunt Anita today!

Aunt Diane.....Hope that everything is going well with the new college girl and that you guys are adjusting ok!!

Funny for nurses

My friend, Andrea, posted this yesterday and I felt the need to share with some of my other nursing buddies this wise wisdom! Thanks for the belly laughs off this one Andrea!


The Life of a Nurse: A Man's Perspective Date:Ah, such mysterious, wondrous creatures are nurses. What treasures lurk beneath those crisp, white uniforms....What young man doesn't have fantasies of discovering those secrets for himself? SCREEEEEECH!!!!!!!!!!!!! Reality check! I've been married to a nurse for a quarter of a century, and let me tell you, nurses are not what you expect (and I don't even care what you expect, because you are wrong!) Let's begin by tearing down some of the more famous assumptions about nurses right off the top:
The Nurse as Sex Kitten: Any man who lived through the early seventies or has made it a point to rent such famous videos as "Night Duty Nurses" or "Student Nurses" or "Night Duty Student Nurses" or any one of several dozen nurse-centric skin flicks will immediately believe that all nurses have heaving bosoms, just millimeters away from popping out of skin tight white uniforms. You will also believe that nurses always wear white garters, fish-net hose, and stilettos. This, of course, is a handy dress code because movie nurses spend *a lot* of time hopping in and out of patient's beds.) The reality is that most nurses wear scrubs -shapeless, draping hunks of cotton that could cause you to breeze past Pamela Anderson without a second look. Shoes are white and chunky with blobs of things on them better left unexplored. Socks replace white hose and garters, and when is the last time anyone saw a nursing cap? Graduation, perhaps?
The Nurse as an Angel: If you want to hear the latest gross jokes, just find a nurse. Some uninformed males seem to think of nurses as angelic creatures: demure and loving, a cross between a nun and their mom. Well, hate to bust your bubble, guy, but as a group, nurses are some of the rawest folks you'll ever run into. I don't care how sweet and demure they may look on the outside; inside is someone who has seen things that would gag a maggot, break your heart, or drive a normal person nuts. So most nurses develop a very wicked sense of humor squarely lodged in the black-to-sick side of the scale.Also, in case you are looking for angelic sympathy for the little boo-boo you had in the shop, forget it! Let's say as a typical male klutz, you manage to saw your finger off. You go running to your nurse wife who is on the phone with a nurse friend of hers. As she continues to talk to her friend, she gives the stub a good eyeballing, slaps a towel on it, takes out a baggie to put the severed digit in, and tells you to get some ice while she is explaining to her friend that her dummy husband just sawed his finger off. As you stand there bleeding profusely for 15 minutes she calmly finishes her conversation as though nothing is going on until finally she says, "well I guess I better get him to the hospital."She hangs up the phone, looks at you, sighs and calmly says, "let's go." You have just learned an important lesson. On the nurse scale of emergencies, yours is about a minus 9! As my wife has told me, "when you are on a ventilator, with six drips running, your head down and your feet up, then you're sick. Anything less than that isn't worth getting excited over!"
The Nurses Mutual Benefit Network: As a male either dating or married to a nurse, you should realize one important thing. There are nurses everywhere. That, in itself, is no big deal. The fact is, every nurse knows other nurses who know more nurses, so that by the time you are finished, a nurse on the Island Nation of Chuuk who observes you doing something you shouldn't has the immediate capability of getting word to your wife. This system is way more reliable and efficient than the Internet and has existed for a much longer time. Take it for granted that your nurse wife will know about anything you have done, good or bad, before you get home!
Your Social Life with Nurses: Nurses hang out with other nurses and soon you may find that all your friends are married to nurses. The reason this happens is because in situations where nurses mingle with nonmedical folks things can get ugly. For example, you are out to dinner with your nurse wife, another nurse couple, and two civilian couples. The nurses sit and chat, discussing fun things like bleeding bowels, open sores, how much fat was sucked out of some patient, projectile vomiting, traumatic amputations, etc., all over a nice pasta dinner. The nurses carry on talking as the civilian couples turn funny colors, make faces and suppress their gag reflexes (and this is if the nurses don't have any really gross things to share like the homeless guy with maggots in his bleeding sores!) After several dinners and gatherings like this, you will soon find your circle of friends has shrunk significantly. The key to avoiding this is to do the following: Never go out in mixed groups with more than one nurse. A lone nurse is ok. The trouble starts when you have more than one, and when that happens, keep the regular folks away. Also get used to the idea that some friends and neighbors will take advantage of the fact that your wife is a nurse by calling at all hours of the day and night for advice. This may include male friends "dropping by" to show your sweetie his rash. The best advice I can give is to just deal with it and hope it isn't contagious.
The Health Ramifications of being with a Nurse: Most nurses have been described as having the constitution of horses, which isn't true because I've been around horses and they get sick more often. The reason for this is pretty simple. After about 3-5 years on the job, nurses have been exposed to so many bugs that they either end up dead or full of every antibody known to mankind. (If you want the ultimate booster shot, just get a blood transfusion from a nurse who's worked in a hospital for 20 years!)You don't have all these antibodies, though, so when she does come home with mild sniffles, a week later you're flat on your back with the worse case of the flu of your life!! Oh, and if you are the least bit squeamish, don't even think about the bugs she brings home on her clothes. It will mess with your mind as she talks about her Resistant TB patient, the patient full of body lice, or the one with poison ivy in his mouth! So don't ask.Conclusion: Ah such mysterious, wondrous creatures are nurses. Youknow, they really are and I thank God every day for my nurse!

Travel to Europe

Plans for Ben and I.......
we are going to be celebrating our 5th wedding anniversary this December but due to the holidays and a brand new baby, we are not going to be able to do anything "big" to celebrate it. (Even though just being together is celebration enough!) So we decided to take a trip to Europe in May when we celebrate our renewl of vows. We are going to be flying into Germany. Our top choices of places to go right now are Germany, Austria, Italy, Switzerland, and Greece. Do ya'll have any must see places, good places to stay, time lines how long we should spend in each country, advice on passports/currency/etc? We would love to hear your opinions and advice! If you can't comment on here please shoot Ben or I an email as we are trying to get it planned early :-) Thanks so much!!

Remote control

Our little girl is definitely growing up! She LOVES Dora and Diego....mostly Diego. This has become a constant battle every day as she expects to be able to watch Diego whenever she wants. Our normal conversation goes something like this....
Kendall: Diego?
Me: Sorry honey, Diego isn't on right now.
Kendall: Here mommy. Remote. Diego now?
Me: Even though we have the remote Diego isn't on.
Kendall: No momma, remote, diego pleeeeeeaaaassseeee.
LOL. How do you argue with the fact that the remote is used to change channels and that you can find a lot of shows on? How does she know already that you can use the remote to find Diego? Oh to be in the mind of that little girl!

I just wanted to take the time (esp. since I am laying in bed typing this!) and tell ya'll what a great job Ben has been doing around the house, with Kendall, with the 4-leggers, and with me while I am down for the count.
I have no idea what I would do without such a sweet, caring man that has been my life saver this pregnancy!

Quick update

Apparently, my little bundle does not like for me to be sitting or trying to do housework....I rested pretty much all day yesterday even though I woke up feeling great to have an afternoon/evening of contractions and back pain again.
My neighbor, Heather, called to check on me and advised that I go on pretty much bed rest for the next week until I get Isaac to 37 weeks so that his lungs are completely mature. (Thank goodness for a nurse practicioner with 13 years OB experience right next door! Our other neighbor 2 houses down is also a NP so I guess if I go into labor Ben will have plenty of help until someone gets here! :-) )It is killing me right now because there are so many things that I am missing out on with Kendall & Ben not to mention that I don't like having to lay down all the time when there are things that need to be done around the house.
I guess that the first ultrasound is the most reliable for dating purposes so even though our little ticker says that we are whatever date according to the ultrasound I turn 36 weeks today. If you can keep us in your prayers that we make it to next Sunday I would appreciate it!
I have to go finish packing Isaac's bag for the hospital then try to work on mine & Kendall's as well.

False labor....

The past 2 days have been nothing short of miserable for both Ben and I. I really do believe that I was so dehydrated that it has taken this long to feel better!
We got home early evening on Wednesday where I was obviously tired and sore from the car ride. Thursday I started out feeling a little punky but was determined to make it to my hair appointment. By Thursday afternoon, we were both convinced that our little buddy was going to be an August baby. I remained stubborn & we stayed at home. Friday morning, I was so past ready to be at the hospital. I couldn't stand up straight, I had all the classical signs of labor (But since they were different from Kendall of course I ignored them!!) so I called the labor deck at Lejeune who told me to take tylenol and that more than likely I was constipated!!! Love the concern there.
Friday afternoon, I finally got up the gumption to bother our neighbor Heather, who was an OB nurse/nurse practitioner for 13 years. (I say bother because her husband is coming home this weekend from a 13 month tour in Iraq!~) All of the back pain/right sided abdominal pain/ constipation pain were contractions & she told me to lay on my left side (duh! nursing school really is so far behind me!) then to drink lots of water. She said at the latest to go in to the hospital this morning if I wasn't feeling better. Obviously, I am feeling much better since I am blogging:-)
On a happy note, thank-you to all who sent cards, presents, emails, phone calls, facebook messages, myspace messages, and any other technologies that I am missing for my birthday! I did have a good one even if we were traveling back from Virgina that day!

Kendall's Korner

Enjoying finding new ways and things to play with....even if it is just pretending!
LOVES to help fix things especially if it involved daddy time. Taking a break from "fixing" daddy's bike before his triathlon last weekend.
Learning how to fly! LOL or just keep her head up with daddy's heavy helmet on!

  • Very excited about mimicking my behavior....which leads to mousse in her hair, several pairs of shoes spread about the house during the day, wanting to wear jewelry just to name a few




  • Likes to give mommy a "bath" when she is in the tub.



  • Is stringing 4 word sentences together at times now! I was worried after her 2 year appt that she didn't know 200 words so I (paranoid mom) started writing down all of her words to find out that she knows approximately 250-275 which is on target for her 3 year check-up!
  • Loves to be tickled. She has started asking to be tickled and will actually put your hand where she wants you to tickle!

Unwelcome excitement last night

  • Thunder storm complete with lightening, thunder, and rain....check!
  • Kendall asking "rain outside" 20 times in a row....check!
  • Jordan shaking and quaking because she doesn't like thunder storms....check!
  • Me falling asleep because I like to blame it on the rain......check!
  • Waking up to Ben trying to figure out why we have water pouring in our bedroom window......NO CHECK!!!

We have to work this weekend on figuring out why all of sudden we have sprung a leak in our bedroom windows. Of course the cedar chest is right in front of the window so it had to be moved out (clean clothes on top of it and all.) Any suggestions from ya'll as to the cause? We haven't had the windows open recently, they are locked, the house is only 2 years old?????? let us know!

"Turtie"



On a lighthearted note before I start my crazy work day, I thought that I would put some pictures up of Kendall with her new friend. At some point, "turt" escaped our yard. Kendall would ask for him and we always had to come up with excuses. I guess that God saw fit for us to welcome another turtle to the family because on our way home from Missouri we found this little guy walking across the road and rescued him. He is much more spunky than our other one. Last night he came into the house for a treat for Kendall. She calls this one "turtie." Geronimo has taken an interest in him as well....we have caught him several times carrying "turtie" in his mouth around the yard!
We enjoyed going to the Barnes and Noble story time yesterday. It was good to be out of the house and see some old friends as well. I wish that I didn't have to work next Monday because I would definately take Kendall back. I am looking forward to taking her to laptime at the library on Wednesday and hopefully a pool date with our "playground pals" on Thursday. Anything to tire this girl out :-)
Guess I better get my hinny ready for work!

Our weekend in a nutshell

  • Friday evening, we had a blast with Ray and Jennifer at Olive Garden. (Ben needed to load up on carbs for the triathlon) I think that Kendall gave them some good birth control for awhile :-)
  • Saturday, we spent the first part of the day (0430 until about noon) at the triathlon. Not only was it good to see Ben do so well and be having fun with something he loves to do, we found a gas station near Goldsboro where we got gas for $3.50 a gallon! (It is $3.89 here in J'ville so we filled the burb up!) We all had a nice relaxing nap followed by some yummy pizza for supper.
  • Today we mainly spent at church and sunday school with some great discussions plus a wonderful sermon. (I am really looking forward to hearing the pastor speak again next week.)

Now we are just working on keeping the house up and the other chores....we have become such an old married couple :-) We are keeping our friends who are traveling this weekend and week in our prayers.

2008 Goldsboro Triathlon

As usual, Ben did very well in his triathlon. He completed this sprint in 1 hour and 33 minutes. (1/2 mile swim, 20 mile bike, and 3 mile run)
He placed 2nd in his age group. I guess we will find out what his standing was overall in a few days when they have the results online.
This is his "award" picture.

Our updates.....

So I haven't blogged in a few days....I have been resting just like the nice midwife told me to!
I think that I told you I worked on Monday and Tuesday. I cannot believe how the practice is growing, and growing, and growing! I think that I will be down to only one day per week from now on until Isaac decides to make his grand appearance.
I had an OB appointment on Wednesday....
WARNING---If you are grossed out by medical terms and descriptions do not read this part of the blog :-)
I have been having a lot of pelvic floor pressure plus some braxton hicks contractions so I asked to be checked. My cervix is still closed but I am dilated to 1 cm right now. If I was somewhat closer to my due date that would please me but since he is still a little underdeveloped in the lung region I am a little scared. The midwife suggested staying hydrated, no strenous activity, and rest. (All of which I have been doing....duh!) I am just praying that he will hold out a few more weeks. I have faith that what is meant to be will be. I think that I can speak for both Ben and I that if this pregnancy had been our first....well Kendall would be an only child!
We are pretty much ready as far as clothes, bedding, etc for Isaac to be here so at least that stress is off of our plate.
We are going to meet our friends, Ray & Jennifer, for dinner tonight so it will be nice to get out and have some adult conversation.
Tomorrow is Ben's triathlon in Goldsboro. I think that the goal is to be out the door by 5 a.m. I will try to get some good pictures of Ben in action :-)
Ben will be going to Norfolk for a conference August 11th so I think that Kendall and I might tag along for company. It is only for 2-3 days so we won't be gone horribly long. Maybe we might be able to see our friends, Bess & Jones, while we are there!
Kendall has been keeping me laughing the past few days....I am working on a Kendall's Korner so stay tuned!
