14 weeks

This week's big developments: Your baby can now squint, frown, grimace, pee, and possibly suck his thumb! Thanks to brain impulses, his facial muscles are getting a workout as his tiny features form one expression after another. His kidneys are producing urine, which he releases into the amniotic fluid around him — a process he'll keep up until birth. He can grasp, too, and if you're having an ultrasound now, you may even catch him sucking his thumb.

In other news: Your baby's stretching out. From head to bottom, he measures 3 1/2 inches — about the size of a lemon — and he weighs 1 1/2 ounces. His body's growing faster than his head, which now sits upon a more distinct neck. By the end of this week, his arms will have grown to a length that's in proportion to the rest of his body. (His legs still have some lengthening to do.) He's starting to develop an ultra-fine, downy covering of hair, called lanugo, all over his body. Your baby's liver starts making bile this week — a sign that it's doing its job right — and his spleen starts helping in the production of red blood cells. Though you can't feel his tiny punches and kicks yet, your little pugilist's hands and feet (which now measure about 1/2 inch long) are more flexible and active.

Oh to be a big kid.....

When I am completing my downstairs work, if Kymber is not at my feet on the floor, I normally find her at Kendall's homework desk in the sitting room. She wants so much to be one of the big kids. Slow down baby girl, you will get there soon enough!

Music to my ears....

The heartbeat of our newest addition to the family.
I had my first OB appt yesterday at Camp Pendleton Naval hospital. We were 13 weeks and 3 days. I am due February 21st.
These past few months have been a roller coaster of emotions with packing, moving, unpacking, new schools, new routines, and of course finding out June 17th that after miscarrying May 17th, we were pregnant again.
We are very thankful for those that have praying for us through the first trimester of this pregnancy.
Unfortunately, this baby will join Kendall in not having daddy there for its birth. Ben will be deployed and probably not meet this one until he or she is about 8 months. We appreciate the continued prayer support in the upcoming months. And of course anyone who wants to come visit/help me out is welcome!

Sleepy pants

Kymber has become such a hard sleeper at night that we've had to put her in plastic pants to avoid stripping the crib every morning! What a different baby from just a few months ago.

Fun in the sun

First time in the pacific. Brrrrr! All 3 kiddos had a blast. (Kendall had so much fun she never stopped long enough for a picture!)

My birthday

I had a blessed 36th birthday with my crazy goof troop! Love this crazy crew!


Spirit day

Each Friday the kids school has a spirit day. Once a month the PTA rewards the participants with a treat. Here the kids are on their first Mary Faye spirit day.


First day of school

The iPhone photos for our non facebook family until I get the camera downloaded. They both love their teachers, the school, and the bus. (At least until homework starts next week!)

My crazy mini-me

Ben says its the curly hair.....she may look like daddy but acts like mama! Here are some of the crazy shots from the trip and the early weeks in the new house!


Dinners and lunches

Before we left Jacksonville, we had so many opportunities to say "see you soon" to precious friends.
There are so many sisters that I left back there that it was almost worse than leaving home for the first time!
I have prayed with & for these girls, laughed & cried, studied, and enjoyed them. I can't ever replace a single memory with these wonderful women! I couldn't let the blog go without some of the pictures so I can remember these precious faces!!

The Lake

We took some time this week to make memories (instead of unpacking!) I took the kids to Lake O'Neill here on Camp Pendleton. They loved checking out the wildlife, digging for treasure in the sand, and of course Kymber got her snuggles in! Love these crazy 3 and their very unique personalities!


Excited for school

Kendall and Isaac are beyond excited to begin their school year on Monday. They will be Mary Faye Bulldogs and are proud of it!
So hard to believe Kendall bug is already in 2nd grade and Isaac well it's not possible that it is time for kindergarten already!!
Kymber and I are probably not as excited to see them go! She will miss her buddies and I will miss all the chaos in the house!

Here's to a year of growth for all of us & prayers for a blessed year of school!

Before we left Jacksonville....

The kids with some of their Jacksonville friends. They were so blessed to have friends of many ages! 
Kendall and Isaac are looking forward to catching up with Taylor who will be stationed in San Diego!
It's amazing how resilient the kids have been! We have had very little sadness about the move from them so far.
