A Long Awaited Update!

Hello friends! My, it has been some time since I have blogged. I have been rather busy... Let me fill you in on all of the things happening in my life! This past Valentines Day, I was blessed to marry my best friend. God has truly blessed the boys and me with an amazing man. He's my husband, so I obviously think the world of him, but to see the boys have a daddy again is incredible. It's the neatest thing to see Quentin, who never had the opportunity to love his daddy in heaven, be able to love and be loved by a daddy now. He is definitely a daddy's boy. I will admit that at times I get jealous when he wants his daddy over me, but then I look at how happy they both are and I melt.

We've had a very busy almost nine months since getting married. We've taken some trips, gone to weddings, camped, gone to the orchard, made lasting memories, and we found out Memorial Day weekend that we are pregnant! It came as a surprise as we were planning on getting pregnant after summer, but God thought 3 months of marriage was long enough to bless us. Along with this wonderful news, came some not so wonderful morning/all day sickness. We found out that we are having a GIRL! I am now 25 weeks pregnant with our little Lucy. The boys (and us) are ecstatic about our new arrival coming sometime in late January or early February (let's hope she doesn't take after her older brother, Quentin, and wait an extra 16 days!).

I am happy to announce that we decided to use the same midwives as I used last time. This thrills me beyond belief that I have another chance at a homebirth! My husband, Jordan, wants to be very involved every step of the way, and is preparing to "catch" the baby when she is born. I am planning on a water birth for a few reasons, but the main ones are for the pain management benefits, and to reduce my risk of tearing as bad as I have in the past. I'm not sure if on number four, it will make a big difference, but I am willing to try!

My goal is to start blogging about this pregnancy, and some other things that are important to me as well. I hope that you will join me in this adventure!
