Our 2018 was a year of extremes filled with ecstatic highs and devastating lows. So many dramatic life changes! So many conflicting emotions! And all over such a short span of time. Two days before my mom’s memorial service, I had a positive pregnancy test. I was in shock. I have no idea why, immediately after losing Mom, the Lord chose to bless us with a surprise baby but I trust that He has a plan. This little one may have been an unexpected surprise, but I know in my heart that he is also a blessing, a precious gift.
You just had a baby or adopted a newborn. Congratulations! This is a momentous occasion and a life-changing event.

Now that the holidays are over, you would expect things to slow down around here but that is not the case. We have officially reached 35 weeks with Baby #2 (we will call him “Pickle” today and see how it feels), and there is still quite a bit to do to prepare for his arrival.
It has been quite awhile since my last pregnancy update. Time sure does fly. We had a very busy November and now we are already at 30 weeks (if the updated due date is accurate). How far along: 30 Weeks Size of baby: I’m actually not sure exactly because our next doctor’s appointment is this Friday. They
As you may have noticed from the eleven posts tagged Baby #1, I did not track our first pregnancy weekly or even monthly. Likewise, this time with Baby #2, I’m also not flooding the blog with frequent pregnancy updates. You can call it a desire for privacy, too much busyness, or just plain laziness on
The title of this blog is A Heavenly Home, and I chose this name because of the hope and inspiration that it gives. If we are all honest with ourselves, I am certain that each one of us desires to have a warm, loving home that resembles a small piece of heaven on earth. In our
About two weeks ago, our little Peanut celebrated his 1st birthday. He is not really a little Peanut anymore. He is such a big boy now in many ways. He wants to feed himself, he is playing with toys more intentionally, he will find his favorite books for us read, and he loves to talk!
