What an unusual month and a half it has been in our house! A slooooow, busy, hot, nauseated, tired, sweet, precious month and a half.
School: Andrew just completed his 1st year of grad school! He's half-way through! The didactic part of his Physician Assistant program is over and now he moves into a year of rotations--12 month-long rotations in 12 different areas of medicine. About half of the rotations are in our home town. More on the other half tomorrow!
In other words, my hubby is currently on a two-week break! And it's been glorious. Sleeping in (Squishy has been sleeping in until 8 or 8:30 lately and we have been taking advantage of it!), doing things as a family...lots of trips to the pool and splash pad. And more dinner out than usual (I'm still not my usual cooking self).

"...His divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness through the true knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence." 2 Peter 1:3
"For of His fullness we have all received, and grace upon grace." John 1:16
That truth has practically held me up. When I'm flat on the couch and the dishes are piled and smelly and I haven't read my Bible, He's reminded me that in Him I have everything I need. It's by Jesus' power and not my own. And there's grace upon grace upon grace upon grace.
In other happy news--I've started to feel the baby move each night when I'm laying down!!!
Squishy: This kid has constantly been making me smile lately. 19 months is an AWESOME age! I have a whole post in my head about him....:) His latest phrases include "Amen!" "Oh boy" and "Toilet"...which comes out like "loy-let!"

Oh, and one more thing! We're eating fresh produce from our garden!
I'm hoping that within the next week most of my 1st trimester ailments will be gone and I'll be back to mostly normal. Along with that, we have a huge month-long adventure coming up that I'll tell you all about tomorrow!
Thanks for all of your encouragement during this time on twitter, facebook, instagram, and here on the blog...ya'll are the best.
