Good Week

In contrast to the rough week last week, this week has been especially good.

I saw the OB yesterday and we got to see the baby, who is the size of a grain of rice, and it's little heart was beating. Hearing that is so amazing, considering it's SO small. We saw Charlie at that point and were amazed as well. The creation of life is incredible to me, and never gets old.

Oh, and the dr had good news, too. While the cyst had been growing, which is not good, it's now draining, which is good. Thank You, Lord! If the cyst had kept growing, it could've become life threatening to me...

And Tuesday we actually had a few hours break from the rain, so I ventured out to the zoo. Normally we're there every week, but this summer, it's been months since we've gone, due to the rain. But I'm not complaining....we've yet to hit 95 degrees this summer, which is extreme, because usually we're in the 100s for most of the month of July! Anyhow, it was overcast, cool, and perfect for the zoo. The boys had a blast, and we even all took a long nap when we got home. :)

One other story before I go. Charlie told Chance yesterday, "Go away, I don't like you." He didn't say it in anger, just calmly, which was even more alarming. So I asked him why he would say that, and he said because Chance will want him to share his toys. So I talked to him about how mean that was, and then he says, "But Mommy, I don't like you either. I only like Daddy." That's probably not the best thing to say to an emotional pregnant woman. Then he starts in on how he doesn't love us as well. I felt a little overwhelmed, not sure how to handle this one. I did put him in time out to think about it for awhile. Then I asked him how he'd feel if Daddy said that to him, and he said he'd be happy. And that Daddy would still play legos with him (he's convinced nothing would stop Chuck from playing kid!). Sigh. Anyhow, he happily went back to playing, and got himself stuck in a basket and asked me to help him out. So I told him I couldn't help him because he didn't like/love me or his brother. So he went back on his previous thoughts. Not sure if this is something I should be worried about (or if that was the right way to handle it). I just think he's too young to say things like this! But maybe he's not...
