19 weeks and Sound of Music

I am 19 weeks today. Man the time has flown by. I am so much bigger than I was with Taylynn. I remember it was about this time that I was just starting to show. I had gained weight, but it seemed to be everywhere else but the belly.
I think I have gained about 6-8 pounds and it is almost all in the belly. The baby should be around 8 ounces and 6 inches long. I am so excited to sweet our sweet little baby on Friday, it almost brings me to tears to think about it.
I am praying for great sonogram results. With my other two I never thought much about the measurements they take or them checking the baby out. I worry now that I have been through it. I realize now that a sonogram is so much more than finding out the sex. They can tell you if your baby is developing correctly, or is having complications. It makes me nervous, but I know that God already has a plan for me and He knows where I'll be in 5 month and in 5 years. I don't have to worry or be anxious about anything, and that brings be peace and joy.
Besides I love this baby so much already. Every time I feel a kick I find my self praying for this baby. Praying for health, love for Jesus, a kind heart, a wonderful spouse....I know I know it seems early, but I am so in love with this child.
Here are some verses that come to my mind often to remind me who is in control:

Philippians 4:6
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.

Jeremiah 29:11
For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

So in the meantime as I write and dream about this baby, my other two are glued to the TV watching The Sound of Music. I admit they have gotten to watch too much TV this winter, but who can resist a classic musical. I do get tired of fast forwarding through the 30 commercial brakes (it is record on the DVR) and the fact that I have seen this movie about 12 times in since January.
Taylynn especially loves it. She doesn't call it by the title, she says "Mom I want to watch the girls dancing" and I know exactly what she means. Soon she'll probably have the words down. I do hear her singing, but it is definitely not the right words.
I snuck up on them today and took a picture while they were watching the movie

Have a blessed day!


  1. You look too cute!! Can't wait to hear the news!

  2. Taylynn & Preston watch The Sound of Music? How precious! =)
    My hubby is BOUND & DETERMINED to make Kaidence like that movie - it's one of his favorites!

  3. Hi Caroline, I just wanted to comment back to you from your comment on my Top 5 Post (you're no reply, so I couldn't respond) I don't live in Kansas, but was born and raised there! I have huge KS pride :-) I've been to many concerts at the Granada and it's still there! If only John Mayer would just keep his gross mouth shut, right?? ;-)
