My Next 20 Weeks

Alright! So we finally have our very own family blog. Hmmm...what to write...We are all doing quite well. Poor Mark is in a permanently overwhelmed state. Stuck in the middle of a dull full-time job selling insurance AND being a full time student, trying to finish his degree from Ottawah University hopefully next February. I'm doing the full-time stay-at-home mommy thing, caring for our BEAUTIFUL 13 month old daughter, Nora Josephine. She is everything we coud have ever wanted in a baby girl. A bit of a wild child (just like mom and dad), and she LOVES music. No surprise, her being our daughter and all.

Mark and I have been married almost 3 wonderful years. We are so blessed to have our lovely healthy daughter...and SURPRISE! another baby girl on the way! I'm 20 weeks pregnant with our second daughter now. Halfway through! Though I hope to be able to cherish these last few months with just the three of us better than I have been. I've felt, since the moment I found out I was pregnant, that I just want to be done. I'm still sick of being pregnant with Nora. I was still nursing her when I got pregnant with the second one, and I just feel like I never got to feel like myself again. Regardless, here we are with a second, so-far healthy baby on the way. What can I say? We're fertile! That is a blessing right there.

What I am learning is that we have something beautiful in this house of ours. The three of us, soon to be four, are so lucky to have eachother. I think for my next 20 weeks, I am going to try and be aware of that. I want to cherish this precious time of the "three of us." I want to be more positive, more excited about the present, not just the future. I hope that I can see what I have, and not what I want.

And I also hope I can keep this blog interesting ;-)
