Has it seriously been since August that I posted? What a shame!
We are settled into our new home and enjoying it quite a bit. I'm still trying to find places for things. Going from a larger home to smaller is a challenge, but one we joyfully welcome. It feels great to get rid of things!
We closed on our short sale on Wednesday this week! Yay! We no longer have to think about the old home with the exception of all the special memories we had there. :)
I am now 27 week pregnant, 28 tomorrow, and the same exact back pain I had with B is back for this one too. If I don't stand or sit in one place for a while I do fine, but if I'm super active or do too many dishes at once I can feel my back tensing up. It probably has a lot to do with the stress of my day as well. I always try to get in a cup of raspberry tea with honey and my vitamins in the morning with a good protein for breakfast.
My little B is growing like a weed and it is a challenge for me to keep him busy.. the evil temptation of computer games and tv wins mommy over too often, but we are striving to take less and less time a day to get off the terrible addiction. We are learning a letter a week. This week was E and next week will be F. That sounds like it would be a good post in itself showing our specially activities we do every week.
We are so excited for baby #2 to come. We are tirelessly looking for a boy name! We are picky on meaning and we both have specific desires on it being unique, but not weird. Both of our definitions of "weird" seem to be different though. HAHA.
Financially we are so blessed. We are not out of debt, but if Jake keeps his job for the next year we are very confident that we will easily be out of debt completely in a year. We are so looking forward to that, but we know new life challenges will come along as usual. :-)
It is hard not to start drooling over land yet. We do desire to have a place out in nature, but we need to enjoy the transition time we are in. Right now we are transition to go from 1 to 2 children, which, from what I have heard, is a big step! Mama will need to learn even more selflessness! Children are so good for our adult character development.
This is probably a good place to close for now. I will try to make my posts more frequent and short and include pictures!
