People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.
If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.
Give the world your best and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway.
For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It never was between you and them anyway.

Regan and Sophie Babyisms

Pretty much every day this year R and S have asked if I have a baby in my tummy and have given me their orders. Regan wants a brother and Sophie wants a sister. They just know I am going to have two in my tummy. During the ultrasound I said, "See girls, there is only one baby in there." Sophie replies, "Let's just pretend there are two, ok mama?" Hahaha

The girls came home from preschool with a little plant they planted in a yogurt cup. Regan was going on and on about how much she loved her tomato plant and wanted to keep it forever. When I told the girls later that day that I had a baby in my tummy they were ecstatic. Regan gave me a hug and said, "Oh Mama, a baby is way better than a plant!" Melted my heart. "Mama, I'll do whatever you want me to do. Stop doing the dishes and go rest. I'll do the dishes." Very sweet sentiment, yet it was pretty much a pie crust promise.....easily made, easily broken.

Regan and Sophie are NOT going to be naming the baby. If they did it would be something like Toodally-doo, Dinosaury, Hanky-la-der-de-der, Shootsy-coo, or my personal favorite.....Doodilly-pop-de-dop. These are names they give their dolls, stuffed animals, or bugs they find. Sophie wants a girl to be named Sophie. Guess she likes her name;) So yeah, they're out on giving input.

Watching me throw up has become a spectator sport. One of the girls will hear me pouring out my blessings to the porcelain throne, run in and yell at the other to come see. Although lately I think they are getting bored with it because Sophie was talking to me while I was wretching my guts up and got mad that I wasn't turning to look at her and talk to her. She even got mad in the car, wondering why I wasn't driving. Kids these desensitized. FYI-I keep a ziplock bag in the car for emergencies like the one above.

Nothing to do with the baby, but I had to post it cause it made me laugh. Sophie said family prayer last night and part of it went like this..."And please help us to not look for bugs anymore......except ladybugs because they are my favorite..." Hahahaha.....anytime Regan is outside, her head is down looking for bugs, worms, frogs, you name it.

I personally think Hanky-la-der-de-der kinda rolls off the tongue rather nicely--it'll grow on you! Those girls of yours are so hilarious! Regan never leaves a rock unturned or a water meter box unexplored looking for frogs and snails and any other little beasties that hide in damp cool places. She will make a perfect companion for a little brother. . . And Sophie right behind. I love the story of the tomato plant, especially knowing how much of a nature girl she is!

So funny! My kids get no say in naming babies either. Bless your heart, and your guts. I swear there's not much worse than nausea and throwing up!

Your girls are so much fun! I miss seeing them and hearing their antics. Sorry about the sport though. Bleh I hate for people to see me when I'm sick.

Kristal, we are so happy for you. I love the ultrasound pics--I can see his little head and tummy! I love how your girls are so excited and I had to laught out loud when I read about them beind desensitized by your vomiting!! I'm sorry you've been so sick. It sounds like you have a good doc though. I hope you don't have to get a feeding tube, but if you do that's okay too. You are such a good mother to be willing to sacrafice your body to such pain and discomfort to bring a sweet spirit of God into this world. I'll keep praying for you and your sweet fam!
