Morning time plans

Tuesday, October 20, 2009

It is indeed true that it is either famine or feast for this blog, but I really am going to try and get to it regularly.

Tom went off to Dallas this afternoon for a language software conference, it is the first trip that Heidi has been aware of Daddy going on an airplane and has been asking all afternoon if we can call Daddy yet and am I sad, and saying "I miss Daddy". Still she will adapt and greatly enjoy the adventures we have planned for the next 10 days.

We went to a midwife appointment this afternoon and all is going and growing well. I was thrilled to meet the new member of the team this afternoon as she is a lovely Christian lady who will in all probability be at the birth. God is very good. So as long as I can keep a handle on my carrot consumption all should go well. Note to all, a pound of carrots in a single afternoon is too much! I did not feel well the next day!

Hand update

We were back at the children's hospital for a check up today, all is going well. They think that the remaining pink in the scars is due to Heidi being so fair. And she is checked into clinic with the plastic surgeon in November just for the final follow up and hopefully discharge.
I was shocked today so realise that is is 7 months since Heidi was burnt. We have so much to be thankful for in the time that has elapsed.

I am thankful that I am beginning to look forward to the coming winter. I have been reminded of some really good times last winter when being warm in the house, eating warming food and generally spending more time just 'visiting' with others. Each season (the physical ones as well as the other ones like early motherhood or old age) is given for a reason, and I am praying that I can learn to be content in all circumstances, not just the ones that I like. I have been able to enjoy some very restful days, and am trying to store up a treasure chest of memories of this time with Heidi before we welcome the new baby. The thanksgiving holiday is on Monday, so we are preparing for having freinds over. It is a welcome reminder to pause and be thankful for all that the Lord has done for us.

It was also the day of cute words, Heidi was given a bear in the burns department, as she is a burns patient. It is yellow with "parkles" and has been named Junior. She also was a happy dessert girl, her donut has "pinkles"!

4th October 2009

Not quite sure about it, but after much hinting of "Mum look, my snow pants"and "Mum I will need mittens", she finally said, "Mum I want to go outside!"
Snowman, or snowy owl? Believe it or not her first snow man, the snow is normally too dry to make things with.
