More from the Hall's

Hello all,
I have to apologize for the long time it has been since I have written on here. Things have been so busy!!
We did get an ultrasound done on Jan 9, but still have not been able to scan the pics into the computer. So we have not been able to get them on-line. As most of you already know, it appears that we are having a baby BOY!! So far we have been able to agree on the name Christopher Judah. We are so excited about Judah coming to live with us, but I am starting to get really scared. Mostly about the whole labour and delivery thing.
Chris tells me that I am already an overprotective mommy. I make such a fuss over what I eat, and how much I drink. Its hard to believe I am going to be 24 weeks on Friday. Its wonderful. Thats 6 months! I am almost in my last trimester! The excitement sure is building.
One of the things that has had me preoccupied is the issue of Vaccines. I have been doing a lot of research on them, and I found a lot of interesting things. I talked with my doctor some time back about my consideration of not vaccinating Judah. I was rather surprised at the strong reaction that I got from her. That made me do some more research. I am sure however, you are not nearly as interested as I am, so I will leave it at that. I have learned quite a bit.
My grandpa sent me season 1 of Perry Mason, an old mystery TV show. I have been really enjoying them. Today I am stayed home from work, because I am sick, and I am finishing them up now.
I am not sure what else to say about the last couple of months. One of these days I am going to take pictures of things here in Bismarck and post them, but ever since I got married I have not carried my camera as faithfully as I did before.
God has been really good to us, It is amazing to watch Him work through our lives. I am still working on memorizing Romans, but I was pretty lazy about it for the last month, so I am redoing a lot now. I want to teach it to Judah when he is young, and in order to do that, I need to become more faithful. Its funny all the things that seem more inportant now that the baby is almost here.
I hope you all have a great week.

Well I'M interested!!! What have you found out about vaccines? I've been wanting to do a bunch of research on all those tough issues like vaccinations, circumcision, bottle feeding, etc. but I haven't really acted on it yet. I'd be happy to hear your point of view since you've been looking into it more. You should post another belly pic too. :) I'm sure you're much huger now...lol. I'm not big enough to fit into maternity clothes yet, but my regular clothes are getting tight...I learned the rubber band trick to expand the waist on my jeans a bit. LOL.

I might do a blog here in the next few days with what I came up with. I have looked into vaccines, bottle feeding, and a little bit into circumcision. I am so nervous about making a mistake that I might be overanalizing everything, but I can sure tell you what I found out.
