Hmm, what else? Well I've been looking into different midwives in the area and found one that I think will be a great fit! I have an appointment with her on Thursday to discuss care options and whether or not we can all agree on the safety of a home birth with this pregnancy. She'll be reviewing my chart up until this point and then we'll see! She is also a wonderful Christian lady and we seemed to have a lot in common during our phone conversation. Please pray that we continue to make wise choices for me and baby girl for the rest of the pregnancy.
Isaac was also just offered a free office downtown by the Tacoma Dome by the Cutco district manager. Of course he took it, so I finally have my dining room back, yay! It's been pretty packed in there for about 5-6 months now and this office was quite a blessing. So for the last several days now I've been in organizing and cleaning phase, getting the dining room back to how it was, and rearranging (in my head, Isaac did the moving!) furniture. I think I'm nesting already, what do you think?! I also moved a few things around in the kids' room today and finished some things up in there. It's nice to be done for the most part, but now what am I going to do with the remaining 7 weeks!? Guess I'll just have to find things to read and clean before she's here.
Tomorrow we are all very excited to go to Seattle and meet up with our good friends the Blands. They flew all the way from GA to visit their family (and us), and to go on an Alaskan cruise (lucky)! We're going to pick them up in the afternoon and spend some time in the city, and then eat at the Cheesecake Factory, yum! It will be so nice to see our friends again, it's been a long time.
Well I think that's all. We're trying to keep things simple and low key around here so I can get my rest and grow a nice big baby. Isaac's working a lot like usual, but things are going pretty well. John is getting the concept of having a baby sister more and more also! He always wants to hug and kiss my tummy now and he spontaneously tells her "I love you" without being prompted. I think he's going to be a sweet big brother...until she goes for his toys in a few months, lol!

That's her hand on the left side of her face by her eye
Last week Isaac took his physical test (CPAT) associated with the Public Safety Test that he took a few months back. He passed it (it's pass/fail), and we're one step closer to getting some interview opportunities with several different departments in western WA. We also found out, however, that even though his Seattle fire dept. ranking was extremely high, Seattle has now pushed back any and all of their hiring procedures until at least next January. Originally it looked as if Isaac would be able to go through the process of hiring through the rest of this year and possibly start an academy (if hired) in January, but it looks like it's going to be a much longer wait now. I guess we'll just have to be patient, and wait on what the Lord has for us. Please continue to keep us in your prayers regarding Isaac and getting hired on a fire department in the future!
