We're on the homestretch! Just 8 or 9 more weeks and our little guy will be here.
I was looking at my Lilypie counter... today it says he's about 17", 4lbs and sleeping a lot due to lack of space? Um, Lilypie has this one wrong! This kid moves all the time...it's like he's eager to break out by punching at my stomach. Last night, lying in bed, he kicked my rib so hard, I lost my breath! Geez, kid - easy now!
I went to the doctor on base yesterday...I've had a lot of trouble with my ears over the last 2 years, but over the past several months, it's gotten worse. He said I have Eustation Tube Dysfunction. I have no idea how common this is, or how it's going to get better....he loaded me up with Claritin, some nasal spray sterioids, and some other type of nasal spray - hopefully this will correct the problem! It's frustrating not being able to hear or feeling like you're constantly underwater.
We're waiting to hear any day about our pending move and new assignment.....I hope we can move soon so that we can get settled before the baby gets here - but we'll just be happy to have peace that he still has a job in the Air Force....I can deal with most everything else regarding moving/not moving/baby coming on our report date etc.

How did I get here so fast? It's been quite the ride over the past 28 weeks....
We're looking forward to the baby's arrival, but we're also looking forward to being settled at our new base with our new assignment. I look back at April last year...Jaye was at OTS, and I was waiting and hoping that time would fly by so that we could be at Sheppard AFB and get started with pilot training. Everything over the past year has been waiting and hoping that time would fly by so that we could get to the next stage.... But now I see how fast time really has gone by over the past year.... I wish it would slow down a little bit. I mean, I'm so excited about the baby arriving, but I just don't want to rush it, so that I can enjoy every minute.
It's been so hard and so good over the past few months. Even in trials, the Lord has blessed us so much with an awesome church here in Wichita Falls - It will be hard to leave them, just like it was hard to leave our church in Melbourne.
Our next ultrasound is on April 15th - We're hoping to get a good report at this visit! The gall bladder was enlarged at the last visit, so we're praying it's resolved itself and that we'll be good to go!
