I figured it was time to get caught up on blogging, since it's been forever since my last post. I have been SO EXHAUSTED these last couple months. Seriously, there are some mornings where I wake up and have done absolutely nothing, but I feel like I have just run a mile. I must be low on iron or something. I've been struggling to just barely keep up with the basics, so blogging hasn't been high on my priority list. Luckily, I have a loving and patient husband, and he hasn't said a single word about how the house has looked lately. He encourages me to nap when I'm tired, and he'll drop what he's doing and (gladly) go on ice cream runs for me whenever I give in to my cravings... which is way too often these days. I'm so lucky to have him in my life. As you'll be able to see by the posts to come, my fatigued state hasn't slowed me down much. It's pretty much impossible to slow down when you have 4 young kids to take care of... especially during the Christmas season.
Here I was in my new maternity dress (thanks Mom and Dad!!) after church this week. We're about 18 weeks now, and we have our ultrasound to possibly find out the sex next week. Yay! I can't wait! I'm so relieved to be in the second trimester because I'm beginning to feel more alive again. It's been so fun to catch up on all the blogs I have missed. I love getting to see what the Christmas season was like for you. I sure missed my blogging buddies!
