Hey guess what!

I completely missed blogging on an entire pregnancy. I had not been planning on being pregnant again but got a surprise in the form of a baby girl. We named her Lily and I got fixed so there should be no more oopses. I am glad to be done with childbearing but also a bit sad that I am done. I really don't like being pregnant but I do love babies.

This pregnancy was especially rough because of the remote location that we live in. I wanted to deliver in a hospital with a NICU and to do so meant I needed to drive an hour each way to get an OB that delivered at the hospital of my choosing. Added to all that was that my last trimester happened during the summer when the kids were out of school. I felt bad that the summer was so boring for the older boys but there was nothing I could really do to change the fact that all I wanted to do was lay down and sleep all day or that it was too painful for me to do long walks. Thankfully that is all over and done with and now I am just simply sleep deprived and eager to get a full night of sleep in a few months or so if I am lucky. Maybe before I go psychotic due to sleep interruption.

We had a quick family party for Daniel after church. It is amazing how fast he has grown and how much he has changed this last year. Daniel is such a funny little guy and it has been a joy to have him in our family.

I heart toddlers!

I think that toddlerhood is one of my favorite stages. Daniel and I have been having a lot of fun with our morning alone time, it is nice having a little buddy around to play silly games with. Daniel's favorite game is Play With Forbidden Items which leaves me having to put a lot of things up and out of harms way only to have the older boys drag the things back out again when they get home.

I also love that he can go from this:

To this in five seconds flat.
