33rd week update.

HEARTBURN! That is the only down fall with pregnancy for me. I have it in the morning, afternoon, and at night. I take the max on the Tums... Smoothly Tums is what I prefer! ;) Other than that, pregnancy is relatively easy.

It's funny when I think how different things were with Jake verses baby #2. With Jake I could nap, relax, exercise when I wanted to, run errands, etc. With this little munchkin, I'm on the go! Chasing and playing with Jake, and keeping up with everything else. This pregnancy seems to have flown by. I love being pregnant. It's just easier when you don't have a 16 month old in tow. We might have one more little one (if we are fortunate enough), but I will wait until Jake is in school. I can't have 3 in diapers! Can you imagine?

This morning has been amazing. Grant and I usually attend Saddleback Church in Rancho Santa Margarita, but with the 1 hour drive (each way), and Jake, we haven't been attending regularly. We'll watch the service live on our computer though. Today, Grant got up and said... we are going to church. We're going to SeaCoast Grace (were we got baptized), and Jake will go into the kiddie program for an hour. I started to protest, and then I realized... It was time. We need to get back on track. Jake is 16 months, and we have another little one almost here. SeaCoast Grace is close and we should go.

Jake hit the door and went straight in.... didn't even look back for us (or me for that matter)! We went in for the service and I felt awesome! The music and the message where just what I needed today. I'm so thankful that Grant made that decision. I'm so thankful for my life, my family, and for Jesus. Life is so good... And taking communion was amazing. I started getting teary eyed. Thankful for God giving us his only son, and for the path of forgiveness and everlasting life. The most amazing gift. I'm proud to be a Christian woman, and can't wait for Jake to really start understanding how fortunate we are.

Jake got home and is napping (hence my blogging), and when he gets up we are going to go to lunch, the park, and then come home and paint and play in the backyard.

Jesus replied: "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind." Matthew 22:37

Hope everyone has a great Sunday!
