I don't know if anyone knew it, but I had to take one of the hardest tests of my life yesterday! I am registered in abdominal ultrasound, but I wanted to get my board registry in hearts (echocardiograms). That required that I take a 200 dollar echo test which was 150 questions and lasts for three hours and also a physics test which is about the same. I took the echo yesterday and passed!! I am so grateful! I prayed so hard while I was in there I know God's ears were burning. I had to take a physics exam for my last registry, so I am not very nervous about that one since I have already passed one before. I feel like a hundred pounds has been lifted off of me. It is really challenging to find time to study with a nine month old.

On a new note, I hated to miss peak of the week last night. I went to visit a new little baby:) A friend of mine growing up has a serious drug addiction. His girlfriend just had his little boy and left him because of the drugs. She is here to stay with his parents for a while and needed some things. I took her some Jack hand me downs. I need to tell her about the friendship center if she needs anything I don't have. Luckily his family is wonderful and like my second parents, so I know she will be very well taken care of and little Waylan too. Please pray for this family, they are in a lot of pain. It is such a sad situation. I don't want to disclose names because I'm not sure they would want that.

I know I am jumping subjects, but I felt the need to post something happy after that. Also, this is a great way to document things that happen in Jack's life since it has dates and times. This week Jack has started a few new things. He has discovered he can do all kinds of funny things with his mouth. He is making this hilarious sucking noise and it looks so funny. He also learned how to get his knees up under him and turn to sit upright. This was great because before this, he would get frustrated at being on his belly and would crawl to us to sit him up. About two weeks ago he started drinking ouit of a straw. That is so much fun to watch:) Sorry this was such a long blog. Hope everyone is having a great week!!

Yeah for your test!! I'm so glad it is over! I know you are. Yeah for Jack's new tricks. He was so much fun at the pumpkin patch making noises and just being happy. I hate to hear that about your friend but I hope he can get on the right path soon.
