okay, i just laid miss mya down for a nap....so lets see how fast i can do this. so much to say about the last three weeks, i don't know if i'll have the time. three weeks ago this thursday we had our third sweet baby girl....mya. i was supposed to go to work that thursday night, but my water broke that afternoon, so i was able to call in and say that i would rather come in as a patient instead. we got to the hospital and things progressed smoothly. with this pregnancy i decided that i wasn't going to have an epidural...for more than one reason, but the main one being to prove my husband wrong ;-) about half way through labor i contemplated the epidural but kept focusing on a bible verse that i had recently been reading (john 16:21 - A woman giving birth to a child has pain because her time has come; but when her baby is born she forgets the anguish because of her joy that a child is born into the world.) i kept thinking of that joy that would come. low and behold i did it, and she came out and the pain was gone and she was breathtaking. we became a family of five! the joy was almost too much for words. after coming home from the hospital every time i looked at all the girls i wanted to cry because i was so happy. the girls as i know call them my little hover crafts are in love with her. the first few days were pretty easy....but now she has her little routine. she is awake in the morning from 7:00-9:00, she eats, then sleeps, eats, then sleeps, then in the evening she is awake, awake, awake. she eats every two hours gets a bath and goes to bed. she gets up again at 2:30/3:30, eats, sleeps and gets back up at 6:30. you may ask why i am writing a detailed description of her schedule...but if i don't i won't remember and i obviously don't have time to write down in her baby book right now (hopefully soon). it's amazing how fast you forget stuff. i can't believe that she will be three weeks old tomorrow...crazy! she is beautiful and wonderful and i am completely in love...we all are. we are so glad that you are here sweet baby girl. god is so good and we are so glad. did i mention she looks just like kylee! i pulled out kylee's baby book the other day and held it up to mya when she was awake...and they are almost identical...it will be neat to see how she changes over the next month or two. anyway, she's crying now, so i gotta scoot!

38 wks.....love the eyelashes!
the count down in on!! tomorrow i will officially be 38 wks and i am ready to meet this sweet baby of ours....it has nothing to do with the fact that i go to the bathroom every 5 minutes or i can barely roll out of bed to do just that ;-) really, this pregnancy has been great, but feeling her move inside for so long i can't wait to see what she looks like. the lake has been a great distraction for all of us. just being on the boat, swimming and soaking up a few rays. the girls are having a blast!!! they would be out there everyday if we'd let them...but i think papa and ohie might need a break. but so far the last two saturdays have been "lake saturdays." maybe we'll even be out there this saturday?? i am kind of hoping to be holding a baby in my arms, but i really think she has decided that she is quite comfy in my belly. here are a few pictures from the lake....and a couple from the little artist who thought it would be fun to paint momma's belly (papooh's idea). they thought that was quite fun....until they started fighting over who was doing what. it was quite comical trying to lift my belly over the sink to wash it off...it's just getting a little too large....but i love it!
