We're over the hump! The halfway hump that is! Maybe I should rephrase that because truthfully, I HAVE THE HUMP!!! :) What am I talking about? Well, this pregnancy! Jaxon is over half way done "baking". I feel truly blessed to have this great treasure of a boy growing inside me. In some ways I dread the day he is born, because there is just something so special about him growing inside my belly. I love feeling him...it's like, "I'm never alone!" :) I do look forward to seeing his sweet face and discovering who he looks like. I look forward to putting some of Jonas's hand-me-down favorites on him, and starting over again with the sweet baby stage. I can't wait to see Jonas and his baby brother together.
we have a new antibiotic a week! I know that is not really true, but sometimes it feels like the doctor's office is our most frequent destination. Today as we were in the waiting room my mind drifted to thoughts of some friends from college and the struggles they face with their children and illness. It made me truly grateful for for my occasionally sick child, and caused me to lift them up in prayer! I can't imagine having a child or more than one child with a life threatening illness, but I have friends who can relate. So join me in lifting them up in prayer too! It is "sanctity of life" week, so lets value the lives of these precious children, and lift up pregnant mothers who are considering abortion.

So the exciting news for our family is that we are under contract on a house! After months of looking at many different forclosures, we found one we love and pray to live in really soon! Before Jaxon gets here preferably! The way things go now, we won't have any security in knowing that we'll have the house for sure until the bank does their appraisal and whatever repairs they want done are finished and reinspected. So we are still in limbo, but a few steps closer to our dream home! Pray with us that God's will be done. Much has to work out! If it does, we are set to close no later than February 15th! And I for one, can not wait to have my own place again...living in "God's house" (lol) is starting to wear on us...plus there is this tiny fourth family member on his way that needs a place for a crib! :)
