Think carefully about what you will be reading...

Mary, had a little Lamb,
His fleece was white as snow.
And everywhere that Mary went,
The Lamb was sure to go.

He followed her to school each day,
T'wasn't even in the rule.
It made the children laugh and play,
To have The Lamb at school..

And then the rules all changed one day,
Illegal it became;
To bring The Lamb of God to school,
Or even speak His Name !

Every day got worse and worse,
And days turned into years.
Instead of hearing children laugh,
We heard gun shots and tears.

What must we do to stop the crime,
That's in our schools today ?
Let's let The Lamb come back to school,
And teach our kids to pray !!!!!!

Baby Stokes at TEN weeks

How your baby's growing:

Though he's barely the size of a kumquat — a little over an inch or so long, crown to bottom — and weighs less than a quarter of an ounce, your baby has now completed the most critical portion of his development. This is the beginning of the so-called fetal period, a time when the tissues and organs in his body rapidly grow and mature.

He's swallowing fluid and kicking up a storm. Vital organs — including his kidneys, intestines, brain, and liver (now making red blood cells in place of the disappearing yolk sac) — are in place and starting to function, though they'll continue to develop throughout your pregnancy.

If you could take a peek inside your womb, you'd spot minute details, like tiny nails forming on fingers and toes (no more webbing) and peach-fuzz hair beginning to grow on tender skin.

In other developments: Your baby's limbs can bend now. His hands are flexed at the wrist and meet over his heart, and his feet may be long enough to meet in front of his body. The outline of his spine is clearly visible through translucent skin, and spinal nerves are beginning to stretch out from his spinal cord. Your baby's forehead temporarily bulges with his developing brain and sits very high on his head, which measures half the length of his body. From crown to rump, he's about 1 1/4 inches long. In the coming weeks, your baby will again double in size — to nearly 3 inches.

9 Weeks : My Pregnancy update from Baby Center

Hello, Heather!

Your new resident is nearly an inch long — about the size of a grape — and weighs just a fraction of an ounce. She's starting to look more and more human. Her essential body parts are accounted for, though they'll go through plenty of fine-tuning in the coming months. Other changes abound: Your baby's heart finishes dividing into four chambers, and the valves start to form — as do her tiny teeth. The embryonic "tail" is completely gone. Your baby's organs, muscles, and nerves are kicking into gear. The external sex organs are there but won't be distinguishable as male or female for another few weeks.
(Notice how they say

Here is a picture of the new baby last week at my first prenatal visit, measuring at 8 weeks and 1 day on January 12th.

guess what ???


Hello All -

I have some news to share with you all. After being really sick with a terrible cold and felling nauseas and fatigued, I decided to take a pregnancy test last Thursday just to be sure....and guess what? I am PREGNANT. Three pregnancy tests later - I was "pretty" - I had my Doctor's appointment with an ultrasound yesterday and I am 8 weeks and 2 days today. I will be due on August 26th - ish. We are surprised but SO exited. We had decided we would start planning to try for baby number two at the end of the summer, and God had other plans for us. This baby will be DUE at the end of summer. We told Dylan last night that is he is going to be getting a baby Brother or Sister and that Mommy has a baby in her tummy, and he did not believe me....He said "NO - Not yet" I guess he will believe it when I start to show more...He wants a baby Sister SO BADLY (me too).....So - That is my news - YAY! :-D
