Praise and Prayer Request

I must stop to thank the Lord for giving me strength to finish 14 out of my sixteen weeks of clinical practice this semester while taking classes still at TGS and doing my best to care for my family. I have only 2 WEEKS LEFT!!! That is the praise!

The prayer request is that I would have strength and focus to finish my last few requirements at the end of this semester. Here are some of my upcoming deadlines:

April 26th - My final portfolio
May 3rd - Action Research poster project
May 3rd -Video (of my teaching) analysis and presentation
May 7th - LAST DAY of clinical practice
May 10th - Lesson plan binder, Exit Interview, Action Research poster presentation, Portfolio presentation

After that I am going to finish my Algebra Correspondence course, try to CLEP out of a Health class, and research for and write my thesis. My goal is to have all of those loose ends tied up in order to graduate and be certified by May 2011. As of now, my plan is to do some tutoring part time over the next year while staying home to take care of Madison and Rose (coming at the end of August). Thank you for your thoughts and prayers. I much appreciate it! I will be so glad to have this all behind me!

And Her Name Will Be...

Tim and I have decided that the name of our baby girl #2 will be

Rose Lillian Baylor

We both just loved the sound of the names together as we were looking through the names online. We are so excited to meet our little flower at the end of August ;)

We love this peanut

So I took Madison to the pediatrician for her 15 month wellness visit. Here are her stats:
She is a whopping 18 lbs 10 oz. and 30 1/4 inches long -haha :)
I'm enjoying how small she is as my belly is getting bigger!

It's a ....GIRL!

Well after an 1 1/2 hr ultra sound - we found out that Maddy is going to have a baby sister! This kid was so jumpy! It was flipping all around the screen. It was really fun to see. And after all that the tech didn't give me a picture - bummer. But maybe I can get one from the doc. It was such a fun experience though and we are excited ;) We're still thinking through names. Most likely we'll share it once we have settled on one for sure.

Well, since I don't have a picture of the baby - I'll post of pic of me (and my baby belly at 18 weeks) when I was visiting my dear friend Dawn in Boston last week ;)
