Feed Me!

I've always been one to really enjoy food. I definitely think about food, good food I want to make or just eat... But since I've been pregnant I really think about food a lot. I think about how some food sounds so disgusting, but mostly about foods that I just really want - right now. Literally, I drop Robert off for school in the morning, before 7am, and I say, "Hey, what are you thinking for dinner tonight?" He hasn't even considered breakfast or lunch, and I'm already dreaming of dinner time! It's bad...but I'm pregnant, right?!

At about 8 or so weeks I started feeling pretty sick all the time. At first I blamed it on heavy dairy products: cheesecake, goat cheese, a glass of milk, etc. They just seemed to really increase the nausea. Which, if you know me, is so sad. I'm a cheeseaholic! I love cheese! I was born that way; ask my mom. (Once, I took a bight right out of a stick of butter because I thought it was a block of cheese!) So, that was hard for me. But, I seemed to get over that and am really loving a good glass of skim milk every other day or so, and am eating more than my fair share of cheese and it's delicious products! (still no cheesecake though; that was rough.)

Other things I am loving are: the stereotypical pickle - YUM! I was into eggs a lot for a few weeks. And now it's potatoes! French Fries (with a lot of salt and ketchup), hash browns, mashed potatoes, baked potatoes, twice-baked potatoes...you name it - I'll take two!!

Since I've been feeling sick, it's been hard to work out, slash also with my lack of energy. I'm just really loving me some extra sleep these days, too. But, I am getting my energy back and am super thankful to be feeling better more consistently! The Lord is good and pregnancy is such a miracle! I cannot say that enough! It's amazing!

Lastly, my sweet husband has been so wonderful throughout all of neediness and what not during this pregnancy. I highly doubt there is a greater man out there! He is so sweet! He loves this baby so much; it's so cute to see him talk to it! He will be the best dad! He's so patient and so kind and I am so very blessed! Thank you, Lord, for this amazing man!

Three and a half more weeks until this pregnancy is half over!! And we find out if it is a boy or girl June 13! Yay Baby Wauhop!

I am at a loss for super interesting updates.

I really want to start writing a book, but can't quite think of something good enough to write about. Any ideas?

Robert is in a summer class that literally requires 300+ pages of reading a night :/

High school Bible studies are coming to a close, but I'm going to start meeting with my girls during the summer and going through Fundamentals of the Faith with them!

The baby and my belly are growing, growing, growing! And I'm so excited! (I'm going to do a post soon of some pregnancy cravings, wishes, and what not...)

We are looking for a bigger place to live. (keep praying! and let me know if you hear of anything!!)

I have 141 days left of work at GTY!!

I'm so excited to go home in August! I bought our plane tickets yesterday!!

And, I'm equally excited to go to San Fran, June 29-July3 for our 2 year anniversary and BabyMoon!! Ahh! I can't wait to be alone with my sweet, sweet man for 5 days straight!

I am a happy girl! So blessed! My God is good!

He said no... But, we know that God is so good and He loves us! And we are so hopeful for our future home; both in this life and the one to come! Yes, I cried. But I am so blessed, and good news - the gospel is still true! So, today I am praying for a little extra grace, and rejoicing in the sovereignty of God.

Thank you for those of you who prayed with us!

Apt. #1

It's so appropriately named, because it truly is the best apartment in our complex! Apartment #1 has just become vacant in the building we manage. Currently we are in apt #9, which is a "cozy" one bedroom. Apt. #1 is a spacious 2 BEDROOM...with a REAL KITCHEN (it's like it's own separate room with more than 1 counter!!), and 2 storage spaces/closets!! Wow! Sounds to good to be true, haha!

But, I'm writing all of this to ask you (Kristen and Marie and whoever else might read this) to please pray with us, that the Lord, who is rich in mercy, would allow us to move in and manage from apt #1! It would be a HUGE blessing with the baby coming in November, and being something we can actually afford! Really, we couldn't imagine a more ideal situation. We've been waiting a little over a month to hear the ruling of the property bosses as to whether or not it's an option. It's been discouraging to say the least. But, also it's been awesome, because the Lord has exposed my faithlessness. O me of little faith. The Lord can so provide this for us, and totally glorify Himself in the process. Or, He can say no - and totally glorify Himself in that process! But while we wait, I'd love for you to pray as well; that way you can rejoice in the outcome as well, knowing that the Lord hears our prayers and He loves us!

Lastly, please read this if you've ever struggled with faithless prayers. It was SO convicting and encouraging! The Lord really used it to rejuvenate me!

And double last, my baby is the size of a lemon! Wow, huge!!
