Well, to those who may still read this... I'm back! I can't believe it's been almost three months since I last blogged. Again, I have done something I said I would never do. Sometimes I feel like that is all I have done since venturing into motherhood. It's funny how survivor mode can make you compromise and give up things you enjoy. I have been soul searching, over analyzing, reading, and enjoying my precious baby toddler without any distractions.

God has truly been good to us over these last few months. Before I start playing catch up with holidays, play dates, birthdays, and just fun memories I want to announce that we found out we were pregnant with baby number two! After getting over the initial shock, we are truly excited to be welcoming this little boy into our family. Annabel had been sleeping through the night for almost two weeks and had been weaned for two days when we found out we were pregnant. We are so thankful for that little blessing. Now I have moved from the survivor mode excuse to the pregnancy brain one. Sometimes I wonder if I'll ever feel human again:).

I had been working on decorations for a baby shower I was hosting, so I decided to use some scrap paper and kebab skewers to make these arrows to announce our pregnancy to Josh. (Psalm 127:3-5) 
I wrote Psalm 127:4 on the card and initially Josh thought we were having twins- ha! My thought was that one arrow represented Annabel and the other one represented the baby. 

 A took them into Josh because I was so nervous about our little surprise. He was beyond thrilled!!! His exact words were "I was just thinking that we needed another baby." I was so thankful for his response; Annabel may have shed a few tears:)

 It's funny how things change with baby number 2. I think I've looked at my baby app maybe three times this pregnancy and with A I didn't miss a day. After much research and debate we are still trying to decide on a name and get used to the idea of a boy!
