I know it has been a while since I have updated the blog. We have been quit busy lately. So here is the news: We bought a new house, we sold our old house, we moved in with my parents, and G is going to be a BIG BROTHER!! I meant it when I said we were busy!
So I guess to the biggest news, I am 16 weeks pregnant and we are beyond excited to be giving G a sibling. At first we were in a bit of shock and then as that slowly faded we became more and more excited for the future. We are going to be Team Green, meaning we are not finding out the sex this time. With G, we knew that we wanted to find out. We had a gender reveal party and the boy themed baby shower. This time around, we wanted to experience the thrill and excitement of finding out in the delivery room. We can’t wait to hear, “It’s a GIRL!” or “It’s a BOY!” as he or she is brought into this world. It’s one of the very few surprises that we can experience in life, why not experience it?! Now comes the debating of baby names…geez, it’s a struggle.
So on to the next big topic, we bought a house! Well its a dump. We just recently knocked it down and we are starting the process of building. This is a whole new scary territory for me. I have only ever experienced renovating a house, never building. I have watched my brother, brother-in-law, and friends all build homes and I know that a lot of blood, sweat, and tears goes into this project. It’s exciting but very nerve wrecking at the same time. Here are a couple pictures of the house being knocked down:
We are so thankful that my parents are letting us stay with them through this whole process. We have the whole upstairs of their house to ourselves. It is amazing to have the help with G while my Dear Husband “DH” is at work. I’m not going to lie, with my hormones raging and living with my parents, it’s not going to be all peachy keen, but I know that this is all a step in the right direction. We know that we will most definitely still be living with them when we have the new little one. It will be a blessing to have the extra help with two babies under two years old. Gosh, I really don’t think I can say it enough…we are so THANKFUL and BLESSED! Both DH and myself have amazing families.
So on to new beginnings! I can’t wait to share the journey.
