to my husband:: 8 years

Jacob Mark,

Eight years ago today we decided to start dating - and for both of us that was a huge committment. We never took our relationship lightly, and from the very start I think we both knew we were meant for each other. I am so glad you took a chance on me, and chose me to share your life with. Who would've thought that today, 8 years later, I would be your crazy wife - painting a baby crib and nursery furniture in our driveway at 35 weeks pregnant preparing to move into our almost complete dream home? I am so blessed to call you mine. You are a constant source of encouragement and support, and I honestly don't know what I'd do without you. Your son and I are the lucky ones!

-With all my heart, for all my life,

33 weeks + broken ribs

This week marked two things I have never experienced before: being 33 weeks pregnant, and having two broken ribs. The pregnant part is fantastic, the rib part - not so much. It seems you actually can fracture a bone from coughing too hard. Who knew? We are praying I heal quickly and completely before delivery in approximately 6 weeks. Your prayers are appreciated as well!

Baby E is so active, and I'm loving every minute of watching my belly move around as he does his acrobats in there! He loves it when his daddy talks to him - he squirms around a lot and it pretty much melts my heart! 
Only 6 more weeks and we get to meet our sweet little man! We can't wait!
