Today was Jennah and Joel's musical. Joel was super adorable and very serious about his flag role. But I must say, Jennah stole the show. I love to see her passion for the arts. It brings back so many good memories for me being in plays and musicals. Jennah has so much raw tallent it always brings me to tear. Her voice it like a little angel. Her confidence on stage it breathtaking. You can tell she is in her element; she truly commands an audience.

I received a phone call today from the charge nurse in OB at St Francis today. There is a job opening in post-partum/high risk ante-partum. Awesome. Its an emergency call back position so it will work perfectly with my school schedule. Even better, it gives me a foot in the door to women's health for when I graduate. Which by the way is 147 days away.

148 days

-Cleaned the nursery at the Church.

-Entered Ben in a cutest kids contest.

-Watched Travis D. on wipeout and he WON!

-Skipped Ben's nap to "see if he could make it". He passed out on the couch at 4:30 and I had to wake him up at 5:30 to meet John for dinner. Made for a horrible evening.

-Never skipping a nap for no reason again.

149 days

I'm not pregnant. John and I have been trying to get pregnant and today I found out I'm not pregnant. I must say this is such an emotional roller coaster ride. Ben was a suprise, big suprise so we never went through the process of trying. I know in my mind God's timing and God's plan are much better than mine. But each month with the reminder that I'm not pregnant makes my heart ache. I love Benjamin so much and equally love being a Mommy.

**Interuption: Ben just walked in and asked if he could be my baby. His insight and timing always awes me.

Ending on a funny note during our small group one of the men prayed for John and I his prayer went like this: "Please be with John and Amy as they try to get pregnant. I pray that you give them time to get it done." I could not quit laughing.

150 days til graduation...

My goal is to post something for the next 150 days.

-Today Ben went for his 3 year old check up. He got one shot and John said he was very brave. He is in the 90th percentile in both height and weight. I find it interesting on height he has always been below the 50th percentile.

-I had an eye appointment today to check the condition of my optic nerve. (thus the reason I misssed Ben's appointment) The most interesting part of the appointment was the ultrasound on my eye. It felt like a massage on my eye.

-Ben and I went to see Winnie the Pooh today in Sand Springs. Tuesday is $2 so I thought I should take advantage and wasn't disappointed. We went to go see Cars 2 at Jenks Riverwalk and the theater was filthy and a little toasty. Sand Springs although old was cold and clean.
