I've taken a gigantic blogging break. It wasn't my intention, I just got behind and then got further and further behind until it was too overwhelming. While we were on vacation last month I was talking to my friend about it and she said something I hadn't really thought of, she told me just to stop doing it everyday. It me a while to get the energy back to even come and let you all know that, but here I am, admitting failure. It was too much, but I'm not giving it up all together, because we have too much amazing stuff happening as a family and quite frankly once I let go of the idea of writing daily I realized that I missed having this place as an outlet. So I'm back! And all I can do is what I can do, and I am going to have to be ok with that.
I will have to write later to give details about our summer, but it was great! We went on the first family vacation we have ever been on and had a fantastic time visiting friends in Connecticut and Toronto!
We also have some very exciting news....
I am due April 20, 2011 and could not be more excited about the new addition to our family! We didn't expect it to happen so easily, but I have to say that we are so blessed that this baby has come so much easier than Jake.
I do think that we have taken it a little for granted though. It took years to get pregnant with Jake, and maybe because it was our first, or maybe just because we wanted him SO BAD it definitely felt differently. Either way, this little baby is so loved already, and won't even know what hit it when it's born. Jake is going to be a fantastic big brother, he LOVES babies. I think that the fact that our kids are going to be about 26 months apart is going to be a blessing because hopefully they will want to play together and will really get to enjoy a close relationship. So, while it was quicker than we anticipated getting pregnant, it is definitely growing on me - LITERALLY!
