I really feel like the luckiest lady.
are so supportive and thoughtful. When I found out the baby was breech, Erica and her daughter made me the sweetest handmade card. She brought over dinner too with tons of leftovers for after the baby is born. Mindy brought me the softest baby doll for Lauren since we don't have any girlie toys yet. Becky brought me lunch yesterday just so we could chat since I didn't feel up to going anywhere. Sammy, Sam, Lena, Amanda and Stacy have given us so many adorable things for our baby girl and I am so grateful. I could go on and on about the love and encouragement my friends have shown me and it means the world to me.
has always been there for us whenever we need them. Eric's parents come to every birthday party and stay for as long as we need them to. My parents now live close by and come over a couple times a week to help out. Our sisters' families don't live as close as we would like them to, but we love spending time with them and the boys talk about their cousins often. I can't forget all of our grandparents, cousins and aunts and uncles too! We're fortunate to have such a close extended family.
bring me such joy. They have such sweet, funny personalities and I love watching them grow everyday. Ethan is funny, patient, independent, playful and smart. Austin is thoughtful, funny, mischievous, busy and loving. I can't wait to meet Lauren and see who she is!
is my best friend and the best father I could have hoped for. He plays with the kids, puts them to bed every night and disciplines them in a patient, loving way. He truly enjoys being with them and they definitely love their daddy time. I love to watch them together and I can't wait to see Eric with our little baby girl too.
He has been so supportive during my pregnancy. He picks up the slack around the house, encourages me to have some me time and lets me sleep in every morning. He works so hard at work and at home and I truly appreciate it. I love him more today than ever.
I feel so blessed and want the special people in my life to know how they contribute to it! I am so excited about our growing family and I thank God for everything He has given me every day.
