Life seems to be flying by before my eyes. In 5 days I'll be hitting week 20 of my pregnancy. Snow continues to blanket the land and we're all starting to get cabin fever. I have the day off from work today, so I have time to "catch up" on a few things, including my blog. I have my 2nd load of laundry in the dryer, homemade lasagna made for dinner, dishes done up, and a few minutes left before Noah wakes from his nap. Sometimes these things seem mundane, but I also seem to enjoy them all the same. As I sit here & think - I can't remember my life without Noah (and Jeff) in it. What joy they bring me. Noah is learning so fast, growing so fast; becomming a little man. As I once prayed for Noah before he was born, I now find myself praying for this little girl that we will meet in July. It seems unfathomable. Jeff & I have started planning the "rearranging" of the house, since Noah & his sister eventually will have their own bedrooms. Looks like the downstairs bathroom will be turned into a master bath, and within the next 3-4 years Jeff & I will turn the current computer/study room into our bedroom - allowing each of the kids to have their own bedroom upstairs.
Meanwhile, AJ & Sherry (my brother & sister-in-law) recently celebrated their 9-year anniversary, Jeff & my 4-year anniversary will be here in a few months, both Jeff's mom & my mom have March birthdays, Easter will be coming, and my cousin Laura will be getting married in September.
As the seasons bring change - life brings change, too - I must get ready to embrace it all.
But spring, please come soon...

Noah LOVES to help with chores. We often hear Noah scampering to the closet & he'll make the "Vrroooom" vacuum-noise & he wants us to vacuum. We tried just getting it out for him to play with, but he points to the outlet & wants it turned on. He use to be happy to watch Jeff vacuum, but now he must do it himself.
My birthday was on February 11th. Noah hit 19 months on Feb. 10th. Jeff invited my mom & dad, brother & sister-in-law over for a celebration. I made chocolate striped-delight - Noah loved it, too!
