Abiding in the Word.

"Here is my servant, whom I uphold, my chosen one in whom I delight; I will put my Spirit on him, and he will bring justice to the nations."

Isaiah 42:1

April is here! Have you all completed your taxes?  Time's a tickin. :)

Andrew completed his first official week of work for his new store. Unfortunately it wasn't as productive of a week as he had hoped because the hiring space he is supposed to have is not available yet. He has pushed through with a good attitude, and has still been proactive. He's had a few interviews in the cafe of the Whole Foods behind his store, as well as Starbucks. He has come home smelling very coffee-like and I don't mind a bit! 

Sadly, my grandmother is not doing well. On Wednesday of last week, she was moved to Tranquility Hospice. Since then, she has been given pretty significant doses of morphine to help relieve her pain. She is still conscious... yesterday, I was told that she would look at people and squeeze their hands. It saddens me that I am unable to travel back to GA to see her one last time and to be with family. I am comforted, however, knowing that soon Gran's body will be whole again and she will be praising our awesome King in heaven. Plus, I will see her again one day. So it's just farewell for now... not forever. If you think of our family this week, please lift up a prayer for my grandmother and family - for peace and comfort.

I go to the doctor on Tuesday for an ultrasound and my 36-week appointment. I'm excited to have an ultrasound! The last time I saw little Firecracker was at 19 weeks, so I think I'm due a little peak.

Have a wonderful week friends!

 Lima Bean loves her Daddy. Here they are watching March Madness.

She also loooooves her pups. 

Lima Bean was playing with the dogs, but sadly they lost interest so she was stuck in a blanket alone. 

She didn't seem to mind too much. :)

Last week was when Lima Bean started to swing "by herself" (aka we didn't hold her hand the whole time). She loves swinging a lot. 

Here she is holding her new doll that she got in her Easter basket. She has definitely turned in to a doll fan. Before Firecracker comes, I'd like to get her some doll goodies like a feeding set of sorts so she can play "house" (as I called it growing up) while I take care of the babe.

Here I am at 35ish weeks. Please excuse the horrible photo, but I thought a little bump update might be nice. It looks as if I've dropped. That's a little concerning, because April is a very busy month for us and we need all the time we can get before Firecracker makes her appearance!
