Yes, I know it is September, but I am already looking forward to Valentine's Day. No, it's not simply because all of my favorite chocolates are dressed in pink and red, but more than that, I'm excited because Valentine's Day is when Janie Lou is scheduled to become a big sister! That's right! We are pregnant!
Two weeks after I resigned from my job we found out that Hergycub 2.0 was on the way! After the shock wore off that our children will be 13 months apart, we began to get excited about having two little ones running around the house! I think JL will be a wonderful little sister, although I don't know if Lexi (our dog) can handle another child attempting to play with her.
I am feeling well and just beginning to show. Carl is doing well dealing with a 9 month old and a pregnant wife. He deserves a big hug for loving us so well through the first trimester and for being such a great help to me.
We are keeping busy as JL is now crawling everywhere, including up the stairs. She loves music and loves to dance and play with her mini keyboard. Her favorite person is her daddy. It melts my heart to watch how her eyes light up and she can't hold still when he walks in the room. She loves to give him kisses and even said “dada” for the first time while she was riding with him. It is such a blessing to see the bond they have.
Over the past few months, God has reminded me that He is my strength and my song! And my theme verse for the moment is (and probably will be for the next few years!) Isaiah 40:30-31.
