No, I won't let you in!! You might burn my city!
No I won't. I'm a good pirate.
What's a good pirate? I'm not letting you in, you'll burn my city!
But I won't burn your city. I promise!
A pirate's promise isn't good for anything. How can I be assured you won't burn my city?
Look at me. Search me with your wand. I can go through the metal detector. See? I don't have any lighters!
(Can you tell someone recently went through security at an airport and saw Mommy get the secondary screening??)
Anyway, true to his word, the pirate did not burn my city. What a relief!!

There hasn't been an update because we just spent 8 full days in DisneyWorld!! We stayed at the Pop Century resort, went to all four parks, and did tons and tons of character meals.
It was our first time flying. Going down, Timothy had a rough time. He didn't want to take his shoes off when he went through security and had a bit of a meltdown. He did great on the flight, but the first day or two was a bit of an adjustment for him. We weren't at home and things were just "different."
It was an awesome, awesome trip though--I was pregnant and it was so hot and there was a TON of walking involved, but the night before we came back he gave me a kiss and whispered "I'll remember this forever!!" Even if he doesn't, I will. The trip we had when it was just him, before our lives changed forever and we added another little one into the mix. I'm so glad we had this time!!
Not only did he get that personal time with our family, though, but he also got to go my mother and my grandmother. There were four generations of us in DisneyWorld!! I got to see Elizabeth experience the magic for the first time...I just loved it. It was just awesome!!
Every silver lining has its cloud, though. My dad got really sick on Sunday and developed the flu. My grandfather fell and needed stitches in his head. My mother-in-law had a heart attack back at home. Timothy had a day full of diarreah. Yesterday morning David and I both woke up with a stomach bug and spent the morning (and the flight) running to the restroom. This, in turn, caused us both to become dehydrated. The dehydration caused me to start having contractions. So I got off the plane and went to the ER and found out I was having labor symptoms brought on by severe dehydration. I got fluids and the contractions stopped but, as I'm still having diarreah, they've now started again. So I'm desperately trying to rehydrate myself at home so I don't have to wind up back in the hospital. Contractions at 21 weeks? No, thank you.
Well, that's the best update I can give at the moment...ta ta for now!!

Tonight started the first night of BabyPlus for our newest little miracle. This child is very inconsistent--sometimes he/she will kick for awhile in the morning, sometimes I won't feel a thing for days, sometimes he/she will be most active in the evenings. It always depends!! When I strapped on BabyPlus for the first time tonight, he immediately started kicking. It was literally about two minutes and I felt a kick kick kick. I explained to the baby that it was boring in there and he/she could listen to something else twice a day.
I dunno--it's hard to concentrate when I'm constantly hearing a bump bump bump and feeling a kick kick kick. But I think the baby likes it!!

Now, with that being said, we've enrolled Timothy in preschool at our church 2 days a week. Until tonight, we really didn't know what we were getting ourselves into. Tonight at meet the teacher night, I actually left in tears. I'm so excited about this opportunity for Timothy!!!!
His classroom is awesome--just like a schoolroom but with tons of centers and manipulatives. Bright posters cover the walls and there are tons of bulletin boards to display their craft masterpieces. Timothy will be learning in English and Spanish, too! It's just 6 hours each week, but I love that Timothy will be spending those six hours with a teacher with THREE DEGREES who, most importantly, truly has a love for God and these children. We could tell she was called to do this and we won't hesitate to leave Timothy with her!!
If I could have designed a preschool for Timothy, this is exactly how I would have designed it. I am so excited about his year here and so is he--he didn't want to go home tonight!

Our Very Own Waterpark!
We've been having a great time!! Timothy can easily learn, and Timothy enjoys learning--everything was worth it, then, don't you think??
Today we're going to zoo to talk about which animals live in water and which animals live on land. I can't wait!! Afterwards, we'll have a nice lunch and a prenatal appointment.
