34 Weeks

 in a little over a month we get to meet this very wonderful baby boy! 
how exciting is that?!
how frightening is that?!

this past month has been crazy busy. 
and as i remembered, weeks 30-34 were the same with my pregnancy with joshua- read here!
funny to think on that time ;) 

but this month: 
i'm looking more and more and more pregnant and gigantic :)
the lawn company i was working for was sold, so i worked a lot to help with the transition. 
as that job ended, a new one came & i am blessed to say i am now employed by a lawyer! 
working from home, 10ish hours a week, super huge blessing & a really good fit i think
we had some really great AlethiaYouth events
joshua, manny, and i all got a 24 hour stomach bug :( 
i spent a lot of time prepping and crafting for their awesome, beautiful day
we had a blast visiting and spending time with family that we don't get to see often enough
manny went on a business trip to orlando 
& i flew to meet him at the end of his conference and we enjoyed 4 days in the sunshine, childless :) 
joshua spent 4 days with Kma & Opa! 
it snowed a lot
there were some nice days of sunshine {such as today}
i ate a lot of chocolate chip cookies
2 more babies were born at Alethia

next month includes: 
another wedding!
manny's half marathon 
a baby shower
AlethiaYouth's Mission Dinner & Auction
our official last day of working/ playing with Jackson 
lots of birthdays 
and possibly meeting our second baby boy! 

baby boy #2: 
you are a crazy mover! you kick me in the ribs o-so-very often and you like to hang out on the right side of belly. you are growing big and strong and healthy. i am so thankful i was able to fly to orlando and spend some time with just your daddy before you came. thanks for not making a surprise entrance or something crazy while i was thousands of miles from home! i have ideas for your nursery circulating in my head. plans for a finished basement & bathroom are in the works, but i have no doubt that no matter what you come home to you will be so loved and cherished by your brother, your daddy, and me. i can't wait to see what you look like & how you and your brother react to each other. i think having a "summer baby" will be so fun. and i can't wait to take you on walks around our great little town. baby #2 you are so loved already. we can't wait to meet you! 
love you more than you'll ever know, 
your momma

throwing eggs: Easter 2013


Easter this year included: church, Joshua's first Easter egg hunt, lots of relaxing, and a nice dinner at my parents with our family. 
it was nothing incredibely special... 
except for the fact that we were celebrating the RISEN KING!

I want to know Christ and the power of his resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, and so, somehow, to attain to the resurrection from the dead. Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already been made perfect, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me.
Philippians 3:10-12
 joshua thought all the eggs were balls & just wanted to throw them... 
who cares about what's inside?!?

me & my handsome boy

 playtime with Kma

 all FOUR of us. 

He is RISEN!
