|Our New Year card :)|
So behind on updating the wind (probably?) on the goings on in our life. Not quite a year ago, we celebrated the beginning of a new life that we would meet in nine months, and then only months later, we mourned the loss of our precious Carsen, the little one we will have to wait to meet with our Jesus. This sweet song became my heart for weeks, months: "I Will Carry You" by Selah. But God got us through that loss, though I still anxiously await the day I get to meet my precious baby.
But what a hope we have in our God! He promises that He doesn't forget us. Doesn't give us too much hurt. And He's reminded us of His grace this year as we await the birth of our second child in July. We've made it through the first and into the second trimester! Praise God! And in less than a week, we will get to start calling our baby girl or baby boy by name!
I'm doing a lot less baking and a lot more healthy meal-planning now. Baby's got to eat right ;) And also less sewing and crafting because, good gosh, busy season is busy! But I am soooooo excited about the cupcakes I am making Friday! Not sure yet if the center will be pink or blue, but that is how we will announce the baby's gender to my family Saturday. (I won't sleep a wink Thursday in anticipation of the sonogram Friday!)
So for a whirlwind of an update, here are a few pictures of the last few months (and a quick tour of the house now that I've had time for a little bit of decorating)...
|We started once-a-month plus meal prepping!|
|And now have a freezer stocked with quick, healthy meals that are perfect for dinner after working all day!|
|Of course I baked a little...|
|And sewed a bit... I've got pregnant friends needing baby gifts, right?|
|We celebrated my dad's 50th! My mom thought it would be hilarious to have an old college pic of him posing on the KA house printed on the cake... and it was! :)|
|And a reminder of what the outside of our house looks like since I didn't catch it in the tour.|
And here is a link to a house tour... missing the carpet we picked out this week. I can't wait to get that in a couple of rooms! We created the video to show potential nannies our house; hence the reference to nanny... House tour
