How I’m feeling: Fairly well. Still very tired, but I seem to have more bouts of energy from time to time and am napping less. Still having slight nausea and cramping. Other things have set in like overall back pain, indigestion, discomfort, and sometimes the inability to fall asleep. HUNGRY ALL THE TIME!
Me: I think I got to go puke. (runs to the bathroom) Russ: Okay you go in there, and I’ll go get your hair band.
I know that I already mentioned this on Facebook, but I didn’t feel like my status update was completely adequate in expressing how utterly thankful I am. I have the best husband in the world…hands down.
I’m 8 weeks today! Woohoo! At 8 weeks our baby is the size of a kidney bean…thus the title of this post. So far the pregnancy, to me, seems pretty uneventful. I do have nausea, but I’m only throwing up on a rare occasion. I threw up last night but that was the first time … [Read more…]
Soooooooo, now that I’ve had my first appointment, and the news has already been slipping out somehow, I feel like I can go ahead and share the it. Russ and I are expecting!!!
I probably couldn’t write appropriately enough to express how grateful I am to our heavenly Father. He is more amazing than we give Him credit for, and I feel ashamed for every time we have ever doubted Him.
Sorry for the “boring” blog posts. I haven’t really been inspired to write anything greatly noteworthy of late. We are so busy! August 1-8 we took a trip over to North Carolina to visit Russell’s family. It was a very nice week catching up with everyone and I know they were all glad to have … [Read more…]

disclaimer…I’M NOT PREGNANT! (yet hehe!) But it is a matter of much discussion in our household. Last week I was trying to explain to Russ the purpose of prenatal vitamins and the function of folic acid in the development of a baby. His response was this: “So it’s like yeast…to help bake the baby!” Then … [Read more…]
We’ve been having fun over the past few weeks visiting some of the BEAUTIFUL state parks in Texas. Here’s a video of fun that we had at Pedernales Falls:
wow…amazingly original title…ha! No I’m just tired and can’t think of anything better. Russ has been home for almost 2 weeks now!! (If you haven’t already, make your way over to the HOMECOMING page for some more details and pictures.) I’m just going to *attempt* to put the emotions of the last two weeks into … [Read more…]
My current Facebook status says this: Aprille is pretty convinced that God really loves her. While the truth of my life is that God is good all the time, and that He loves me all the time, there are sometimes God uses little things to show me just how much. It all started with printer … [Read more…]
On Wednesday, I drove up to the battalion rear detachment HQ and picked up a paper copy of Russell’s orders. I can finally definitively say that we ARE moving to Kentucky this fall. Russ will be home early this summer. We will be taking a trip up to KY to find housing and then over … [Read more…]
If anyone desires to know more about what Army life is really like, I would recommend standing in line for a half hour at the on-post post office. What you can learn there will give you more insight than even possibly the most well-written book on the subject. I knew when I drove into the … [Read more…]
