November 5, 2014- The first time we saw Little Sister on an ultrasound. Now, anyone who has had a pregnancy loss, or maybe even anyone pregnant, can understand how I was feeling. By the time of our appointment and we were walking to the ultrasound room, I was already in tears. I was so worried that I had already lost this baby. The ultrasound tech was great. She found the baby quickly and we saw the most amazing thing- the beating heart! My tears of fear and worry quickly changed to tears of joy that this baby was doing well and growing!
December 31, 2014- My dad and stepmom both retire! This meant that they can travel to see us more often!
March 10, 2015- Little Guy began preschool. This was sooner than we anticipated, but we decided it was a good time due to the upcoming changes to our family.
May 31, 2015- Two years since I became a stay at home mom! Although I miss teaching, my heart is still at home with Little Guy and now Little Sister! I feel so blessed that I am able to do this!
June 11, 2015- The day we met Little Sister!
June 25, 2015- Little Guy turned 4! and learned how to ride a pedal bike (with no training wheels)!
Life is so different now than it was a year ago. Little Sister came into our lives and now everyday seems like an adventure with two little ones. I have to remember to allow myself some grace as I have not figured out how do everything I used to do.
I love where my life has brought me. A loving husband who works hard and two beautiful children that I am blessed to be at home with. This past year had some wonderful moments. I can't wait to see what this next year brings.
