Debated putting this one here or not, but decided to go for it! Tell me what you know about, elevated alpha fetoprotein? Who's had experience with it? How'd it work out? 'The google' is helpful, you guys will be more helpful.
So, Aaron Christopher II now grabs my face when he gives me kisses. Are you kidding me? Plus, I had this really freaky experience where I was snuggling with him the other day and was like, 'I cannot believe he is two years old!'. You see, I don't dig the baby phase, I have been waiting to get out of it. We finally are with lil' A, it's so cool to be able to really play/talk/etc... with him. But, it happened, just like all of you said it would. I looked at him and thought, 'this is going by way too fast'. Which is pretty amazing, because, no joke, I'm the mom that prays the baby phase speeds up!
I am presenting this weekend at a Youth and Young Adult Gathering for the AOD. Super excited, but am hoping to do a really good job. If you wouldn't mind saying a prayer or two, I would really appreciate it.
The Wilkerson clan is going to the DC area to see my brother...yikes! We'll be lap-flying with both of the boys and then renting a car when we get there. I keep asking for prayers, but I shall ask for one more, pray for the intercession of the good ol' St. Christopher that travel goes smooth and the husband and I play nice :)
So, 'Husband of the Year' award. This week has been really busy, but on top of the busy, the pregnancy sickness has reared it's ugly head in full force. The wee hours of the morning have been the worst, which leaves me in a zombie like state at 6:00-6:30 am when the boys wake up. Big A has been getting up with them, feeding them and letting me sleep in till 7:30-8:00 am. It is making a significant difference. He rocks.
Are we about to get through 7 Quick Takes without me ranting about a single thing? It appears so!
So, Colleen at Martin Family Moments is always raving about Catholic Schools and how great they have been for her family. I think some of it is starting to stick. I was driving the other day and passed a public school bus with kids getting off and thought to myself, 'man, I would really like to send our kids to Catholic Schools'. I called the husband and asked if we could 'put it on the table' (we still have three years before we even need to worry about this). And he said, 'we can put it on the corner of the table' and I said, 'I appreciate that'. But then, a few hours later, he contacted me and decided that in July, when we are finally out of debt, we are going to make a budget line for Catholic Schools. So, we will spend the next three years saving for them, which should guarantee lil' Aaron Kindergarten and First Grade, and Joey, Kindergarten. Then, we will see how Big A's career progresses, what we are able to save, etc...and take it year by year. I am psyched.
