New Baby

It's so good to finally be able to tell everyone!

Not that I couldn't have (or didn't....) sooner, I was just waiting FOREVER for that shirt to arrive!

I'm almost 7 weeks, I think. We're not to sure. Basically we got the house and decided we could start trying again and two weeks later I got a positive test.

I'm due around July 20th. Again, date isn't all that accurate because I can't remember the proper date to start from. But I figure most babies aren't born on their due dates anyway. That will make Hana almost 21 months old. Close, but not too close. I will be in the "two under two" club for a while tho.

We're so excited, and so blessed. It was quicker than we anticipated, and there's been so much going on lately it seems a little crazy, but I'm so much looking forward to the next nine months and what God is going to do for my family.

Help out a friend?

Can everyone do me a favor?

go to and vote for my friend Gemma in the 50 000$ baby shower contest?

She's a friend of mine from Calgary and could really use the help with this. The winner will be announced on Monday, so vote as often as you want between now and then. She's contestant #7 and you can read her story on the site.

So much has been going on lately.

Hana is 1. We're all moved in to our new house. Just got phone and internet yesterday, and it's so nice to be able to connect with the outside world again.

With all that, I've become a NaNoWriMo dropout. Ah well, there's always next year.

There's other stuff too, but it will have to wait.

I can't believe she's been outside of me for a year.
She's beautiful, cuddly, intelligent, creative, funny, adorable, active, curious, determined, emotional, social and every other thing I could ever have hoped she would be.

This past year has had it's rough points, but through it all she's the highlight. There have been times we've both broken down into tears, but it's never been anything a night sleeping side by side couldn't fix. She fills my heart with laughter and my eyes with tears of joy. She's made me the mother I am, and a better wife, better friend, better woman than I ever was before. She's made Ben a wonderful father, wonderful husband and the best man I have ever known.

I do have pictures, but can't find the cable for the camera, so you'll have to wait.
