Today is the last day of February and I am now 18 weeks pregnant.
 
I-ching came and stayed with us on Sunday and left on Monday afternoon. We had a good time chatting, and we tried to make a Tiramasu, it was pretty good for the 1st try, although it will probably taste better if we could find lady finger cookies instead of using an angel cake. We had to look for the special cheese for about 30 minutes in Kroger. But gladly we found it at last but we didn't find the wine we needed so we just used coffee(decaf) so the kids could eat it too, but because we had to use raw egg(as the recipe called) Jacob had a little allergy.

I started prenatal yoga on Sunday, it was pretty good. I like the teacher Heather a lot. We only had 3 students in the class, so it was almost like a private lesson. The other 2 women are about 32 weeks and 20 weeks, so I am the least pregnant. Heather talked a lot about good postures and how postures could help labor. We have 6 more weeks for the class and I will probably continue if they still offer the class.

Jacob has been doing VERY well in learning at home. His phonics skill is very good and he is willing to learn everyday. Jacob also loves his math practices, always asking for more. Timothy also does homework everyday, I usually print out letters and numbers for him to practice. He also draws tons of pictures everyday, sometimes coloring, sometimes free drawing.

Only 1 more week then we will find out what we have. I can't wait!! But it's only 1 week away so I am not that anxious anymore. Shirley(Ho) is having a girl soon and that's great for her. I am sure the baby girl will look beautiful, as all mixed babies do.

Jouma's father(grandpa Yang) passed away last week. I miss him and grandma Yang because they took care of me when I was in high school for a period of time. I loved staying at their house, because they were so loving and I enjoyed grandma Yang's cooking very much, I still think she makes the most delicious domplings in the whole world. Also the lamb hot pot. I hope I still have the chance to eat her cooking once again soon.

We've been enjoying very sweet oranges and pineapples recently. Mom usually buys Texas oranges from Fiasta, and they are so cheap and sweet! But the season is probably gonna be over soon for oranges, then we will enjoy watermelon in the summer!! Can't wait!

I will start taking the boys swimming very soon now the weather is getting better and warmer. Maybe Philip can take them swimming while I do my prenatal yoga class.
 I hope Jacob still remembers how to swim, and Timothy will have the courage to start leaning swimmimg and not just clinging to the wall. 

I will end here. Time for lunch!

It's been a while since I updated the diary. Only one word: tired!! I am 17 weeks 2 days pregnant today. Time surely flies, soon I will be half way through.

Went to my OB appointment last week, everything was fine, there was really not much to be checked. I had my blood drawn for AFP test, and still haven't heard from the OB's office, I guess everything is ok. Exciting thing is we have the date for ultrasound: March 8 on Wednesday at 8:30am. Hopefully we will be able to find out if I am having Summer Grace or Joseph. Philip will go with me of course and mom will send Timothy to school for me.

We got the result from Reach testing. Jacob is not qualified. But I am ok with it. I think the main reason Jacob didn't test well was his language barrier. Maybe next year we will try again and see if he gets in, if not, no problem. I know how talented Jacob is. He is excelling in school and learning well at home too. I am proud of him. He is already on hooked on phonics level 3. He takes home learning very well. He is a very obedient child. Thank the Lord.

I've been feeling the baby moving a lot recently. With this pregnancy I started feeling very early, when I was 12 weeks, but this past week it's been so strong I feel it a lot during the day and at night. This makes me think we are having a boy because the baby is surely strong!

Last week on Valentines' day Philip brought home 2 small cakes from La Madeline's. That was very sweet of him because after his class it was already over 10pm and he had to knock on the store's door to ask them to open the door so he can buy the cakes for me. I was already in bed when he got home so didn't see the cakes until the next morning. But both boys and I enjoyed the cakes. Thank you daddy!

Tomorrow morning I will be in Timothy's class for about a hour to be the "substitute" teacher because Ms, Becky has something to do and can't be there. I gladly agreed. Love to be with Timothy!

Time to pick up Jacob!

 It's been a while since I wrote a blog. Nothing much happened, our daily life is as normal as can be. Today I am 15 weeks and 2 days pregnant, so in my 16th week. Next Friday I will have another OB appointment, hopefully we can set up an ultrasound soon after that. can't wait to see baby and find out what it is, a girl or a boy.

Jacob is having a field trip right now, they will all take the school buses and go to see a play in Richardson high school. Hope he has lots of fun!

Next week will be a busy week because both boys' classes have valentine parties and I will be in both. Here the Valentine's day seems like a big deal, everyone is buying cards or gifts or flowers. Even little kids have to exchange cards with each other to show friendship. Which really makes me wonder why the schools don't celebrate religious holidays but treat Valentine's day an important event. Strange.

I returned the baby doppler this morning after Yoga workout. Took me a while to find the Fedex dropbox, I had to stop and ask a Fedex worker(in his truck). Yesterday I listened to the heartbeat with the dopper for the last time and I recorded it on the digital camera, the baby's heartbeat was as strong as usual, and I was glad I got to record it. Maybe soon I will figure out how to post it on here. The baby swam away from the doppler several times I guess he/she didn't like to be bothered

Last Saturday morning Philip and I took the boys to home depot to do the kids craft they provide once a month. It was fun, the project was very easily, the heart shaped napkin holders, which took daddy and the boys about 5 minutes to finish. Then after we got home, after lunch, we went to the trail for the boys to bike and we took walks. It was a wonderful time out in the woods. We all enjoyed the fresh air and exercise a lot. I enjoy each minute of our family time together. Now daddy is so busy with work and school, it seems even more valuable when we can all be together and just hang out. This Monday because the boys were off from school Daddy took a day off as well. For the whole weekend the boys enjoyed working in the side yard with daddy to lay the granite tiles. Usually mommy would use that time to take a nap...  Within a few days daddy probably lifted several thousands of pounds of tiles!! I feel sorry I can't help but being pregnant is surely a good excuse !! hehe.
Our side yard will look very beautiful by the time summer comes. And we can all play on the tile ground instead of the useless grass.

I've been thinking about names for the baby. Right now I have several in mind, for a girl, I like Summer Grace, Acacia Grace, Madalyn Zoe, or Briana Grace. For a boy Philip suggested Joseph because in the old testament he was the youngest son of Jacob and at the end was the blessed one who saved his family and his people. We are not very good in picking boys' names but I am sure by the time baby comes we will have something for him/her to be called.

I called daddy(mine) again yesterday morning and we got to chat a bit. It's always nice to talk to my beloved daddy. I am glad we can talk to each other with no hinderance. It's wonderful to have such a loving father. 

We had chicken(mushroom sauce) and rice and spinach/tofo soup for lunch. Timothy ate a big bowl of each, and me too, so full now I am yearning for a nap!!
