almost 9 weeks to go and other things...
Here's my tum at 30.5 weeks. Almost 9 weeks to go - who's counting? US!!!
I am so thankful that my tooth is not hurting after being exposed for almost days now. That is so fantastic and something I am really thanking the Lord for.
Brett and I got through some super big cleaning/organising jobs here recently in readiness for bubba :) So glad about those getting done.
Liji was sooooooooooooo enjoyable when i took just him to the shops yesterday afternoon. He was so helpful, asked for help when needed and was so sweet and i just lapped up every second of it considering it doesn't happen like that each time. God really is doing wonders in him - his level of empathy for instance is so fantastic now. Just this morning i was reclining in the lounge chair from very sore ribs and he came and gave me a cushion (unprompted) and when i said, 'oh no mum's ok thanks mate' he insisted and said it would make me feel better. A lack of empathy is quite often present in children on the Autism Spectrum and was quite noticeable for Liji pre-diagnosis. Again, all we can say is that God is doing wonders before our very eyes :)
Stassi really enjoyed Alyssa's birthday party today - thanks Linda :)
Ethi loved playing cubbies inside today since it was so rainy :)
Brett and I got a sleep in till 9 yesterday morning - the kids were up playing cubbies in their rooms quietly. It was a wonderful treat for us. And when i say treat i mean treat!
Brett has taken the kids to church this morning but i am having a relax at home; a bath, some nap time and just generally hanging out worshipping God here. Love these rainy restful days.
I had a most wonderful hang-time with my lovely Mel Moor this week - eating dominos' new chocolate cake thingy (tooth problems? who me?!) and it was lovely to be real together. love you mel.
And i can NOT wait until the end of the month when my Anth comes back for a visit from Wales for her friends' wedding!!! Wooohooooo :)
Love to everyone :) Oh and I have some emails to return which i can only access on my other computer which hardly gets turned on at all these days. Please forgive me if you have emailed and are waiting for a response - will try and get onto that in the coming days.
God bless you.
