It's A....

Side note: Emma loves putting this bucket on her head. I guess cause it fits it perfectly...and maybe it's our reaction too. And she's exploring the world of magnets!
Well some exciting news! I was so fortunate to call the doctor yesterday, to check the activity of my insurance, and find that it was activated so I'm like, well i'd like to make an appointment then. So she first schedules me for a normal check up with the doctor but I was like, well the one appointment I had to cancel was a sonogram appt. so does that matter? I think it's time for me to do it. At first, she's like, there aren't any available for a couple weeks but we have a routine check up available tomorrow at 10...oh wait, hold on, there might be a sono open tomorrow too. And minutes later, sure enough, there was! It was so awesome to get the next day! So I was able to go in and see the baby moving. We are happy to say that we are having another girl and we are so excited! I think it'll be so fun to have 2 little girls together. She's healthy and active...just like Emma...I was hoping this next one would be a bit more calm but we'll see :) So we're just happy and glad that it's all worked out and our insurance dilema is over. And I guess our new due date is later July, like in the 20s. So from what I just wrote, the doctor isn't exactly sure on a positive due date so we're going to keep an eye on it each month. But hurray hurray!

I'm a showing mama

Well, this was taken a week ago or so...and it's pretty obvious that I'm pregnant now. Today, I'm 19 weeks along. I wish I could tell ya'll what we're having but...we're having some difficulty with our insurance. Anyone who has dealt with Medicaid probably knows what i'm going through right now. In a quick version, here's what's going on:
I applied for Medicaid back in Dec. I got approved and recieved medicaid cards for both Dec. and Jan since it was the end of Dec when we finally heard from them. So I was able to see a doctor at like week 15,..and make another appointment for this coming Monday for an ultrasound to find out what we're having. Beginning of Feb comes along and no card. Go to the office, which is a pain, to see what's going on and I find that i've been un-approved. They supposedly sent out information to us that then was sent back to them so they canceled my coverage. So beginning of Feb, I applied again. Heard from my case worker finally a few days ago to turn in a copy of our lease, which I did that day...and now we wait. I was going to drive down to the office again to see if they could possibly speed things up so I could attend my Mon appointment but they like to go at a snail's speed over there...It's just tough cause Joe doesn't have school on Monday either so it would have worked out perfectly. So now we're just waiting and i'll have to reschedule. Hopefully if it's a good day and in the afternoon, maybe JOe can come but we have no idea. So now the fun of finding out what it'll be has been killed. I think if this would have been the first time, I would have been freaking out and crying but now I know how freaking long pregnancies are...I know i'll find out eventually. It's just frustrating, that's all. So hopefully soon, i'll let ya'll know the outcome of this soap opera of a life that I live.

More pics of my Arteeest



The Makings of an Arteeest






When Emma discovered crayons, she went nuts. She loves the concept of making marks on paper, cardboard, cement, plastic...our BBQ...anything that she can get her pudgy lil' hands on. Since she's still an amateur at it, she's figuring out the best position to hold them and the most comfortable position to sit in. So these pictures can explain themselves. She was quite focused on drawing that she really wouldn't cooperate for a decent smile...but that's ok. I love the serious, expressions that she comes up with. It's her face and she can do as she pleases...but as long as it pleases me too! :)
