Big Changes

So much has changed in our family over the last couple months. Joey interviewed for a new job and after lots of praying, he got an offer! WOOHOO! God is so good! Not to mention, we now have two cars! YES, two cars! It's crazy how we take things for granted until you don't have them-- but we survived with one car for almost two full years. Now that Joey has a new job and since he won't be working from home anymore, it was definitely time to get a second one. Also, I wasn't about to have a second baby with only one car and Landrey is coming very soon! It definitely saved us a lot of money though, and made sense since he was working from home.

We also have been really diving back in to church and have finally settled into our favorite place, 12Stone, which is right down the street from our house. Hartley loves going to her class now and is learning a lot and meeting new friends. It makes me super happy to see her enjoying something new. We even joined a couples small group to meet more couple friends and it has been wonderful so far. I've never been in a small group, so I"m really looking forward to how it changes our relationship as a couple and in our marriage.

Some other changes in our family have to do with my bow business! I'm so proud! It started out really small and very slowly when I opened it in February of this year and finally I have made huge progress! I made my very own Georgia Bows that are now being sold in a store in Athens, Georgia, called The Clubhouse. It was so exciting to get an offer from a family friend to have my bows sold in her own store. I have been one busy, busy mom! Every chance I get I'm working on a big order for the store or for items to sell on my Etsy shop, not to mention just managing to keep up with the housework and my crazy, little, terrible-two, Hartley. She has been so funny lately, with everything she's saying now. Her favorite thing to say as of late is, "why?" after every single thing I say. That's fun! It's incredible the things she has picked up. It blew my mind the other night when she said "because!" Oh parenthood. It's full of surprises.

Last but not least, I'm now 32 weeks pregnant with Landrey! I'm so ready for her to be here that I can hardly stand it. I can't believe she'll be here in less than two months! It seems so unreal. This pregnancy has flown by, but by no means has it been as easy as Hartley's. I was horribly nauseous and tired the first trimester, but luckily never got sick. This time, I'm sleeping hardly at all and getting up a bagillion times a night to go to the bathroom. The best thing about this pregnancy has been that I'm a lot smaller than I was with Hartley, but I think I may be the only one who says that's a good thing. She is a very, very active little girl! I just cannot wait to meet her and see what Hartley thinks of her new, little sister. =)

Until next time....
