Baby Makes Four!

We are expecting!

It's been a busy and exciting couple of months, and we are about to get even busier when this little one arrives!

Planning for our new addition has consisted of cleaning out the guest room/playroom and relocating all the toys and dolls. Elise seems very excited to be a big sister and has loving named the baby "Baby Beluga". I hope this is in no way an indication of the baby being the size of a whale!

I had forgotten how many doctor appointments have to be made and how much juggling there is with the good old work week. For me the balance between work and home is at times overwhelming, but I do the best I can and make sure the priority is on the most important. Also, I am brave enough to admit defeat and take time out when needed. This week for example has started with me being home sick. After battling this cold all last week, hosting Elise's 4th birthday party, and teaching Sunday school to 16 almost 4 year olds, I was down for the count and exhausted Sunday night.
We are slowing finding our way through the recent changes and the holidays are a welcome sign of relief, as vacation days are dwindling...

More to come on my ideas for the baby's nursery!

Have a great day!


  1. I am so excited for your growing family!!!

    Praying you have a smooth and healthy pregnancy/delivery. Hang in there! You've got a lot on your plate but God's grace is always sufficient!

    (I can't believe Elise is almost 4! Wow!)
