One day I will remember to do this more often. I look at my friends blogs and think..."that is so cool to have this kind of media to keep up with each others lives". Anyway, here is our latest news!

Well, In December we found out that we are expecting our second bundle of joy. And just about a month ago, we found out that Nan will have a baby sister. We are feeling really good about the name Eden Kate for this next one. I have to admit that I was very hesitant about having another kid. But I felt that it was time and that Nan really needed a playmate. Growing up I always thought that I wanted a good size family and that I would be an awesome stay home mom. Then I had my first. Please don't get me wrong. I LOVE Nan, she couldn't be any cuter, better behaved or have a better personality. I love her and am SO grateful to have her in our family. I have however found out that I am a very independent person. I have had a hard time accepting my role as a stay at home mom. But through a lot of prayer and patience, I am finding myself at a more comfortable place. I also have to interject that I have a WONDERFUL family who live close and have been a lifesaver through the rough patches. I have come to understand that the Lord really does know us individually and we just have to let Him into our lives. In this way He can make us into who we need to be. I also realize that because we are individuals we don't have to fit into any mold. As long as we are following the path the Lord has set, the rest is up to us to become the person the Lord expects us to be. I have TOTAL respect for those to whom being a mother comes so naturally (aka, my mother and MANY others). I look to them for inspiration and help. Thank you to ALL those who are such a good example to me.
To sum this all up I wanted to say that I am excited to welcome this new little spirit into our home and pray that the Lord will help me be the mother He wants me to be. I am humbled and know I won't be able to do this without him. I'll keep you all updated with any news on the baby... She is due on Aug 13!
