I feel like I have really neglected my blog... and in a way I have. But I've had a somewhat good reason... err reasons.
In May, my husband and I learned we are expecting! Very exciting news, but I've also been very cautious about announcing our news after our devastating miscarriage in February 2011. A little over a year ago we had been pregnant with twins and thought that all was going well, then at our 18 week appointment we learned the babies had passed away at a few days past 17 weeks. We were heartbroken, but we had God, we had each other and we had my older two children from my previous marriage that also helped us get through that rough time.
I'm still nervous, as I'm a few weeks from week 18, but I'm more hopeful and this time there is only one baby. This we know for sure and I am thankful for it, I'm pretty sure I would lose my mind with twins.
Another reason I have sort of neglected my blog is that my family has been visiting this summer. Pretty soon my children leave to go back home to Oregon for the school year. While we have had a great visit, I am really-really-really going to miss them. We took a couple of road trips in June to Salem, MA and we went up into Maine since the kids hadn't been there before. Needless to say, they loved it there. They both commented on the beauty of Maine and loved how much it reminded them of Oregon.
Today is my baby girl's birthday! She is no longer a baby, but she'll always be "my baby"; Mom's you know what I'm talking about.
Happy Birthday to my "Baby Girl"! I love you very much! ~Mom
