So much to write about, where to start? Sorry I just dropped off my blog without any warning. We had to figure out a way to make cutbacks when Max lost his job back in May....Internet, home phone, and cable were the first to go. As everyone knows, because of my mother's blog (I would make one of those fancy links to it right there, but I don't know how to), Max got a job up north near Antecortes working with foster children. I am on "rest" with my pregnancy right now, and I have an almost two year old. So, I really can't be left alone 31/2 days a week right now, which is what his schedule up there requires. We ultimately decided to have him commute back and forth while we live with my parents for a while (and they graciously let us do so), instead of moving up there now. I am also homeschooling my sister Lizzie, so we'll stick around until the end of the school year instead of just after the baby is born. Anyways, long story short, I'll have Internet access for at least the next few months.
Max is really enjoying his job- he likes trying to make a difference, so I really hope everything works out for him in the long run. Even if it's hard for him to drive back and forth right now. So, those are the big changes...looking to the future now...
Alana is going to be 2 years old in November, and she's getting a baby sister for her birthday....She might even have to share her birthday with her since my due date is December 1, and Alana's birthday is November 21st. Alana was born 2 weeks early, so it's not crazy to think that this one could be born nine days early. This holiday season will be chaotic for sure, I'm not even sure I'll remember it in later years!
Here are some recent pictures of Alana, one of her on the potty (I know it's mean- it's just so comical!), and another of her at Wild Waves. The one of me is at 31 weeks, it's my most recent tummy picture. :)
