Me, Lynne', Abby, Danny, Mom and Dad.
This is the part of our family that went to Jamaica (or were already there)

2 birds with one stone?

Week 16
Week 17

Since I am almost at 17 weeks I am going to go ahead and post for both 16 and 17. Hmmm I don't think I ever posted for 15 weeks but that is ok. A week from Thursday, on March 5th I will have my ultra-sound and hopefully will find out if we are having a girl or a boy.

The clouds from the airplane.

I am facing the hotel.

Man was he sun bright and right in my eyes.

The coast

I am sitting here in the wonderfully air conditioned Internet Caffe at Galena Breeze. The view is AWESOME!! It is about 85 degrees outside right now and very humid. We went to church this morning and worshiped the the Jamaicans. It was a great experience. The children had been taught a song by a group that came last year and is here again this year. They got up and sang the song for everyone! It was so sweet and just awesome. Yesterday was crazy but today is better so far. We have a few free hours for now and then a meeting and supper at 6:30.

YIKES Tomorrow is the day we leave for Jamaica. Please please please pray for us and for our families while we are gone. I know this is causing some anxiety for Tracy and the boys. Today also marks 15 weeks pregnant for me. I will try to post about it later.

When you have lemons....

Welcome to the second trimester! This week's big developments: Your baby can now squint, frown, grimace, pee, and possibly suck his thumb. Thanks to brain impulses, his facial muscles are getting a workout as his tiny features form one expression after another. His kidneys are producing urine, which he releases into the amniotic fluid around him — a process he'll keep up until birth. He can grasp, too, and if you're having an ultrasound now, you may even catch him sucking his thumb. In other news: Your baby's stretching out. From head to bottom, he measures 3 1/2 inches — about the size of a lemon — and he weighs 1 1/2 ounces.
