I can't even keep up with all the things Noelle is learning and doing. She certainly keeps me on my toes.
A few weeks ago we had a scare and I had to go to the hospital. I had a threatened miscarriage and so I took it easy for a little while. Today I am 13 weeks and feeling less nervous. Although I'm a worrier so it never seems to stop. My blood pressure has been pretty stable. I'm going to the doctor's this week and will ask her some other things I can do to keep it down. I really want to make it to 35 weeks or more this time. I'm trying hard to not stress over things that I have no control over. And even not stress over things I can control. This is going to be a huge goal for me and something I really need to get under control. All in all I feel optimistic and more than ever right now I know that everything is in Heavenly Father's hands.
Here are a few pictures that I actually managed to take:
Noelle really likes her toothbrush
Noelle did this with her animals. I love how much she loves animals. I can't wait until it is warmer so we can go to the zoo.
There is this other fast food place with a little playground called Arctic Circle. Noelle loved it there. Without me even asking her she will finish most of her food before playing. Here she is enjoying her mini ice cream cone. She was in heaven.
