In other news, we're all feeling much better. Madison is in a much more chipper mood and her spots are nearly gone. Yesterday she just had a slight rash left on her legs. Today I can still see it but it's more faint. By tomorrow I expect it will all be cleared up. I still have my doubts that any of her fussiness had to do with teething... She really never had any other teething symptoms. And, well, she doesn't have any more teeth breaking through yet either! So maybe all the crankiness was related to the fever/roseola and just the process of getting back to feeling normal.
Matt is doing better after having a big allergy attack this past weekend. He took a long walk with his friend Andy through the fields at my parents' place and came home a congested, sneezing mess. He's still fighting some symptoms - not sure if it's all allergies or if he has a touch of something else - but he's still better overall.
I'm also feeling better as my first trimester nears its end -- I'm around 12 weeks. My stomach still lurches at times, but overall I'm feeling less ill, am able to eat more & cook more, and have had more energy. Praise the Lord! Weird as it sounds, it's a great feeling to wake up and think, "I feel like cleaning the bathroom today!" Go figure.
Please continue to pray for Matt as he studies for his final psychology exam to conclude his degree. His test is scheduled for Sept 6 at 8 AM. Please pray he passes so the degree will finally be done!

In other news, keep little Madison in your prayers. She's in full blown teething mode with fever, rash & fussiness. It's so hard to know what to do for the poor little thing at times. She didn't have a fever today (after having one off & on for the past 3 days), but she was super fussy all day long - never really seemed content & happy. We don't know this little girl!! The little girl we're used to is very happy go lucky. Please pray this phase passes quickly & she'll feel better soon!

So here's the BIG NEWS... #2 is on the way!! We are expecting again, looking at an arrival date of early March '09. We're excited, though it's hard to wrap our minds around the idea of 'the baby' and not be referring to Madison. I'm sure when he/she arrives, we'll adjust very quickly! I had several weeks of throwing up (which I never did while pregnant with Madison) but lately am just overall tired and yucky feeling.
To those of you who had an early heads up to this little bit of news... I had an ultrasound yesterday and there is only ONE baby in there. ;-) I had a doctor's appointment a couple weeks ago at which they thought I was either a month farther along than presumed or there were twins. I personally just felt this doctor didn't know what she was talking about -- and PHEW I was right! Three little ones under 2 years old sounded like more than I could handle!
Another couple months still before we can find out gender. We'll keep you posted with any new news. Please keep us/me in prayer as the pregnancy goes on.
