Sometimes God has other plans for you....

So, for those of you who know me, you know that baby number two was supposed to be something Tyler and I were planning on getting to, NEXT Summer. In fact, this whole entire Summer, I've been on my soap box about how GREAT a three year gap between kiddos would be. Quite frankly, the idea of a second child right now, when I'm just starting to get my arms around this whole "Mom," thing, sends me into a panic attack of epic proportions. Seriously.

Don't get me wrong, a second child was in our, "plan," and I am nothing short of thrilled that we are blessed with the opportunity to raise another sweet babe. I'm just a little nervous about the semantics. TWO children, twenty-three months apart..... holy smokes! But hey..... that's life.... right? If Tyler and I have learned anything as a married couple, I think it's just to "roll with it." God has a plan and I just have to keep reminding myself to just let it be, sit back, and enjoy the ride, his ride....

So, with that said, and a really big deep breath, I thought I'd share with ya'll how we found out about our impending little nugget......

When my Grandfather passed away, he had a contagious bacteria in his intestines, so when I got home from FL and had all these stomach "issues," I just assumed I had caught his bug, which the Doctor assured me that for "healthy" people would pass relatively quickly. Two weeks later, I hadn't eaten a thing, felt utterly disgusting and was majorly stressing out. Then suddenly, the Saturday before our family beach trip, I woke up CRAVING a Quarter Pounder with cheese, I'm embarrassed to admit---my signature pregnant food. Tyler looked at me and said--- YOU ARE SO PREGNANT. Sure enough six VERY POSITIVE pregnancy tests later --- we were convinced! 

Needless to say, we've since gotten over the, "shock." and are extremely excited to welcome our new little one sometime in late March! In the meantime, I'm doing everything I can to remain healthy and not turn all gigantic "Jessica Simpson," again. I'm not giving into my cravings AND I'm still working out almost everyday. So HOPEFULLY this time, I won't gain SEVENTY POUNDS! Cross your fingers- PLEASE!

In the meantime, my goal is to kickstart my blogging efforts again and take you all along for this fun-filled ride! So if your interested, check back for fun preggo/mommy updates!  I promise they'll be more often :)

Thank you, as always, for your love and support!
