I'm so thankful...thankful that I am soooo tired and getting sick...because all that means that a new little one is being formed by His loving Creator and each day brings us one day closer to holding him/her :)
The focus has been keeping the family fed, keeping the house somewhat clean :), working on school with the children, and keeping up with the laundry. That last one always is the hardest as the smell of dirty clothes or even the laundry soap always turns my stomach the wrong way when I'm expecting! (*See picture at the bottom of this post!) So if I don't update here as much these next couple of months, you'll understand why :)
I saw the doctor last week for an early check up and to get an idea of a due date. He told me I'm just over 7 weeks along now giving me a due date of May 9th. We saw little Lockwood #12 via u/s and ohhh was he/she a cutie! :) I thought that baby looks very feminine while Abigail said she thought he looks like a boy. Nehemiah ran around my room pointing to the picture saying "puppy, puppy", so he thinks it's a dog :)
I told Daniel that if we do have a boy, we should name him Justin. Then we can give him Other for a middle name.... Justin Other Lockwood :)
Yesterday, we had 64 children in Sunday School! Last week, they had hit their goal of 50 so we had a surprise pinata afterwards. Their next goal is to reach 100. I'm not sure what we will do after that as I think we won't fit in the building....a good problem to have though!
Daniel is in Jesus Maria right now with some of the boys and people from our church. I miss going, but I might have to sit it out for a few more weeks until my stomach settles a bit :) Last week, they had 4 new men come listen to the preaching! They even served our family burritos afterwards. :) I baked them some chocolate chip cookies a couple weeks ago and they keep asking for more, so I'll have the girls help me cook some I think next week.
Well, I need to help Rebekah finish cooking supper so we have it hot and ready for the "men folk" when they arrive home. Have a blessed week in Jesus!
