I've been so neglectful to this blog. It really would be much easier to do a couple short blogs a week instead of these novels. I need to get with the program! Where do I begin?
Life has been so completely crazy the past 6 months. The biggest news of course is that we are expecting a little boy at the end of August or beginning of September! We are so thrilled. The story of baby #2 starts long before we conceived in December. We actually got pregnant last September with a due date in very early June. Unfortunately, I suffered a miscarriage at a little over 6 weeks in October. It was harder than I ever imagined it could be. Why am I posting about it now? I don't know really. I guess I feel like I can't tell this baby's story without telling the story of the one we lost. I remember feeling alone when it happened and broken, so broken. Come to find out though, several friends had been through the same thing. I know it is SO difficult to talk about, but I wish more women did. So it really goes without saying that we are beyond excited about this precious little boy. Not that I know what to do with a boy, but I can't wait to figure it out! Katelyn doesn't really understand the whole baby brother/sibling concept. She, of course, knows what a baby is and loves her baby dolls. She somewhat gets that there is a baby in Mama's belly, but she really has no idea that come the end of August there will be a real live baby living in her house. Should make for some interesting blogs/photos/videos. haha!
What else? My Dad is officially retired from Disney. He's been suffering some health problems off and on so it was definitely time. My Mom should soon follow. I love that my parents are retiring but wish it were under different circumstances. Such a stressful time, but we will make it through. We always do!
That about sums up the past few months. Katelyn is well into the terrible twos. WOW. I never knew it could be this bad. She really is too smart for her own good. I feel like I can't leave the room for 5 minutes because she will be into something or climbing on something or trying to walk out the front door. I'm not kidding!
Life is busy, crazy, but still fun!
