I feel like I haven't talked about these three in a while. Maybe it's because I've had a lot on my mind with this new little one still cooking. We we're playing at the park the other day, and as I sat on the bench I started to think about life with another..Soon there will be a 3rd to call me mommy and depend on me. But also a 4th for me to love. When I was pregnant with McKinlee I was worried I wouldn't have enough love for both of my girls. Now I know why the lord has given me the blessing to raise these girls. He knows I have enough love for each of them. Baby Monroe isn't the one I'm worried about. McKinlee is still my sweet baby girl. I'm pretty sure she knows something is about to change. 5 Times a day she walks up to me with her blanket and says " Hold me, now rock me like a baby." My baby is growing up! And in just 4 short weeks we will have a new baby to hold and rock. But in the mean time I want to soak up all the time I have with just these 3. They are my world.

I can't eat that!

Here I am 30 weeks pregnant! Not the best picture of myself but you get the idea. And I'm only going to get BIGGER!! As of Friday I am now granted a Big baby! I have Gestational Diabetes! You have got to be kidding. I took my first glucose test at about 13 weeks and I was fine, and another at 26 weeks. My Dr. told me I'm not the average 300lb diabetic. But She also told me all the fun things I get to look forward to in the next 8 weeks! Stress Tests, NO Sugar, finger pricking, on the spot diarrhea caused by my medicine. Cut back on carbs. Oh and ultrasounds that's a happy thing. It will be hard not to satisfy a pregnant women's cravings. But I am determined to do this for my baby. I just hope she doesn't come too early even though she will be big I want her to be fully developed. So I should know in the next couple of weeks when she will arrive.
