Croup and a congratulations!

 The congratulations? Well, after a year of being employed with Kal Tire, Tim became a certified assistant manager! This took some serious studying, training and a lot of long meetings....and long working hours! But BEHOLD! My amazing hubby accomplished an incredible feat and they LOVE him at work.....who woudn't...I mean...REALLY! So we got him a cake. (Promise insisted it was his birthday and even yelled, "HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DADDY!" when he got home....and yes, we had to sing the Birthday song, too...and blow out a candle.)

 But the week before certification, Promise came down with a rough bronchial infection, Toby had a serious case of croup (throwing up almost every time he coughed), I had a bladder infection and then we passed the cold to Tim! It was a rough week indoors and we had to summon Daddy from work once because we had several doctors' visits and antibiotics for all to get....but we made it through.

It required a LOT of prayer from friends and family, too....we were really concerned about having to take Toby into emergency because he just couldn't catch his breath and couldn't keep his meds down.

 He is handsome. And (below) a great diaper dancer!
 The week before that, we had some Mother's Day fun outside! We ordered a pizza for mommy and daddy....(mommy made gluten-free/dairy-free pizza for the kiddos) and played in the warm sun all afternoon. And a special mother's day gift from baby number 3?....I felt KICKING! Yes, at 16 weeks, baby kicked hard enough for me to notice! Now he/she won't stop!
Of course....where did the sun go!? It's been rainy and COLD all week! Summer is not coming this year, so I am told. Gotta keep the kids busy somehow!!! ACK!

Meanwhile, today I am 19 weeks pregnant and doing pretty well. The bladder infection was as a result of my pubic bone out of alignment causing stress on my ureter and bladder. The chiropractor is working on this area now even more. As this baby grows, I am feeling the weight on the pubic bone like never before. OUCH! So thankful for this little one, though. We find out the gender on the 21st of this month.

Feeling grateful for His grace these days....amidst a lot of chaos, He is our glue....our peace.
Be blessed.
