Oh Baby!

I’m blogging again and as my motherly nesting instincts set in so comes the urgency to write. Yes! We are pregnant with baby #4 and are due in early February!!


Pregnancy such a gift and it becomes even more so each time. This pregnancy has been easy on me so far. The first trimester was sluggish (although I don’t know any other way at this point) and came with lots of food aversions, mainly in the form of meat. We are now nearing week 18 and I am feeling the usual urge to sort, file, and organize everything in sight. I dearly wish that I could have this same gumption when not pregnant!!

I have a few things in the works for this fall and many many blog posts to write that have been spinning in my head for some time now. God keeps calling me to be more bold in my faith and to share it. This past summer I was stunned with the news of SCOTUS and everything happening with Planned Parenthood to the point of being speechless. After considerable amounts of prayer I continue to feel that He is calling me to bear witness and to share my faith and how we live our faith as a family at home in hopes to help others do the same.

I hope you all have been well… I have missed writing here dearly! Is there anything new in your corner of the world?

    Happy to hear you are having a baby! We have five little ones ages 8-1. I am super busy raising kids and homeschooling too. But wanted to let you know I feel the same desire to share my faith and the faith and example of my family. The world needs use more than ever to witness. Planning on doing some local prolife work in my area and involving my girls who are old enough now. Please pray for my family on this journey and I will yours. And the expecting bundle of joy of course!!

    Hi, friend! Congratulations, first of all, and it’s so good to “see” you!

      Thank you! I always am super uncomfortable being in front of the camera… and it takes a couple of tries with the camera remote… but I know this baby will cherish seeing mama in some photos because I am always the one taking them!!

        Yes, kids love seeing their mommas ‘back in the day’! Hope you sail through the 2nd trimester! (but not too fast!). Enjoy!
