We know how blessed we are. We know the baby is healthy. We have our families so close by that take turns staying with me and Rhiannon 6 days a week while Russ works. We both have jobs and I'm able to still get a paycheck while I'm out of work. So, we need to remember how blessed we are. And remember that this is in God's hands. I believe that He knows that we're strong enough to make it through this or He wouldn't have given us this challenge.
So, I will be updating you on the challenges of bedrest! So, far I am caught up on all the CBS soaps. I'm a little bummed that Guiding Light went off the air. I am also way into all the teen trash that comes on in the evenings. I have joined Net Flix and will be beginning my movie analysis tomorrow. I have books and lists and my computer. However, there just isn't a lot you can do lying down. Even working on the computer is difficult. Plus, the doctors want me to keep my stress level at a minimum. Have they met me?
Rhiannon is doing great. I think she actually prefers that I'm here all the time. She doesn't seem to care too much that I'm always in bed or lying on the couch. Yesterday, she came in the bedroom and told me to "Get up and go lay on the sofa". Bossy little thing. But she makes a good snuggle buddy. Here we are watching t.v. together.
Russ is an Angel. This is his last semester in college and now he has to take on my part of the day to day. Luckily, he did all the cooking, cleaning and grocery shopping anyway. Now he has to bathe Rhiannon every night and get her ready in the morning but that's just fun. He's such a wonderful Daddy and Husband.
Here are a few pictures from our latest ultrasound. Jelly Bean likes to cover his face. Little stinker.
