Packing Peanut Mayhem

Monday night I ran out for a few minutes and returned to this! Jeremy had let the kids play in a box full of packing peanuts. Since the kids cleaned up their own mess, I can't really complain. Plus, isn't it fun just to be messy and silly once in awhile? They definitely looked like they had fun! Yesterday was a pretty busy day. We had three doctor's appointments, and then did grocery shopping last night. Good news: John David's ears are perfect, and he doesn't have to go back to the ENT for six months! Good News #2: my blood pressure is still within the no-panic zone and my OB said to just keep an eye on it and I don't have to go back for four weeks! If my blood pressure does go up again, there is still room to increase my dosage and they can add another medicine if needed. Only six weeks till our 20 week ultrasound! The kids are pretty much convinced that this baby is a boy, and I'm leaning that way myself. So far, my instincts have been right with the other three, but how hard is it? It's a 50/50 chance, right? We should have an answer before we head to Tennessee in April. John David calls the baby "my baby". Yesterday at the OB office, he heard the heartbeat and got so excited. He was yelling, "That's my baby!" Monday, he accidentally hit me in the stomach with a soccer ball. We were playing catch, and I obviously missed. He told the baby he was sorry, but he said, "I'm sorry, Baby Jesus." He thought that was pretty funny! Anyway, we are doing well. Monday was a hard day, but I keep trying to remind myself that it's only been six days now since Corey left. I'm going to post tomorrow about Caitlyn's latest lost tooth, and Thursday I will have a picture of our almost completed house. Love you all, and thank you to God Almighty who has blessed us with three amazing children!
