Snapshots of a Life

I have been too busy to blog. Our life has been running along at a frenzied pace, and most of the stuff we have going on is not really 'blog-worthy.'

But of course, the littlest Noisykid is most blogworthy. My beloved wife is now 13 weeks, and feeling lousy. She is the only woman I know who rejoices with morning sickness, but even she is looking forward to the end of this phase of pregnancy.

Through it all, the little Noisykid keeps growing.

I suspect it will be a boy, seeing as how uncomfortable he is making his mother.

Here are two pictures:

Noisykid #15 reclines in his/her personal water bed. Head to the left.

Noisykid turns his/her head to the side, giving one a view of part of the face.

We got a video on DVD which showed a heart rate in the 160's, but the heart is still too small to determine if it has 4 chambers. Gender determination is a few weeks away.

Kinda makes you want to have another, EH?

There is one thing I can mention. This Summer is a time for transitions, and the words in this film clip sum up some of my activities this week.



"Lord, now lettest Thou Thy servant depart in peace
According to Thy word."

Watching this clip always reminds me that England was bombed in the Second World War, and we in the United States have never had to suffer in the same way that the British have. I am sure the British cherish their freedom more than we do, since they have a lot more relics of that conflict scattered throughout their land. Even the events of 9/11 seem to be receding into the past; someone else's problem.

I am so glad all is going well with the pregnancy. Even being sick is a blessing after losing babies and wanting that reassurance.

Prayer to Our Lady of the Mysterious Decapitation

Mary my mother, take my hand today, and all days.
Lead me away from all occasions of sin.
Guide me in fulfilling your last words in the Gospel,
"Do whatever He tells you."
Amen.
