Baby, Laundry, and more and more hear the gospel!!

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!
Sunday School yesterday

Rebekah and Abigail and even Nehemiah helped me tackle the weekend's laundry so we can now sleep in our bed again :)


  1. WOW, Jaynee, that's a lot of folding! I have close to three baskets right now to fold for the seven of us. . .I'm just glad that we incorporate the children in chores so to fold that much takes about 10-15 minutes tops. Glad to hear your feeling so bad :-p

    Praying for a safe, healthy pregnancy and especially a safe and healthy delivery!

    God bless from your fellow c-section friend :)

  2. My bed looks like that sometimes and I only have 3 right now! Love the little boy name you came up with. *wink* ;)

  3. Jaynee,

    What a great update! Glad to hear you are feeling pregnant. :) I only have a couple weeks until I will get to hold our newest baby. We are all so excited! The children think it's so funny when I tell the baby in my tummy, "Come out, come out, whoever you are!" Because we don't know if it is a boy or a girl. :) I love surprises!!

    Have a great week!

  4. Oh, the love/hate relationship of morning sickness that lasts all day! How happy we are to know a little one is growing - but how I waited to feel better! I am praying for you!

  5. Laundry---it has a mind of it's own!!!
    I will be praying for you and that your stomach settles down soon. I had terrible morning sickness with my 2 boys. So much for my first son that I lost 22 pounds! So I can feel for you : )

  6. Just another lockwood, now that's funny...Your mountain of clothes looks daunting, but with so many in the family its amazing to keep on top of it when you are not feeling so well.
    64 kids in sunday school what a huge blessing witch I will pray doubles soon.\God Bless

  7. That's cute "Justin Other Lockwood" :) I hope you get to feeling better soon; it must be really hard to even think about laundry when it turns your stomach so easily. :(
    We'll be praying for you!

  8. Oh ladies,.... I didn't get the name joke... I was trying to work it out - then decided it must of been an American thing , someone famous etc??

    Thanks for explaining it. I get it now! Cant half tell we are in a school holiday break , hope my brain starts working before we go back!

  9. It may just be my mommy brain- but, are those Mother-ease diapers on the bottom corner? How many do you have in diapers at one time? Wow!
    *You are my hero! ;)*
    Do you need anything (stuff)?
    I would love to help if I can. I don't have much cash but "stuff" is in abundance around here... I need to do some spring cleaning!
