And now baby makes 4!

Well as you all know with my open honesty, Drew and I were planning on growing our family in about a year, but we were so excited to find out last week that we are PREGNANT! Brayden will be a big brother, and our due date is April 23, 2010. Brayden will be 22 months old, I will not go back to work till August, and we are beginning the planning! I have had lots of people question me and wonder if I was crazy, and I take offense to that. Yes it was a little sooner than expected, but I see this baby as a blessing from God, and we are all going to greatly benefit from our new addition! We are looking into several options, possibly moving if we can sell our house, and other keep us in your prayers! We will be finding out what this baby is, and from what I can calculate that would be around the first of December. I have been tired and nauseous but no throwing up yet! Now I am five weeks, and last time it hit at six. I am so praying for a vomit free pregnancy!

Here we go!

Play dates, Chicago, friends visit

Well I finished my second grad class this past week! So 8 more to go! I also have some big news for Drew....he got a new job! His boss was retiring, and he was a little bummed when he heard this, because he had only been at this job about 10 months, and was hoping she would wait another year or two so he would have more experience. But he decided to interview anyway. He beat out about 8 others who were older and had lots more experience. We were so pleasantly surprised that he got the job! He starts tomorrow as the team leader of the Lexington Health Department!

Drew's sister, Audra, is in law school (getting ready to start her third year) and she has spent the summer interning at JAG in Chicago. Last weekend Drew and I went with his parents to Chicago to visit and sight see. Brayden stayed with Krisi and my mom and dad for two nights. This was the longest I had ever been away from him, but I knew he would be ok. The trip was great! It was jam packed, and we went to a Chicago deep dish pizza place, rode the train into town (I admire how Audra lives in the big city, it makes me nervous), walked around, did a bus tour, visited Navy Pier, and went to a Cubs game. This was my first trip to Chicago, and I wante dmore time to see it all, but was so ready to see my baby! Brayden did really well, and loved being spoiled by his favorites. I enjoyed Chicago, but it made me appreciate living in Georgetown.

This past week we went back to the Children's Museum with Brooke, Ella, Sarah, and Ivy. IT was so cute to see the kids play together, and they all had so much fun. It was also a good chance to get to see my friends before school starts.

This weekend we got to visit with Lynsie Robert and Emmie. They came in from Owensboro. I couldn't get over how chubby and happy Emmie Kate was! It made me miss Brayden at that age, and really verified how much I do want another baby in the future. Friday night we ate at Giovanni's pizza, Saturday went to the water park (which they loved) and then the park that night. I wish they lived closer, because we always enjoy our time together.

I start back to work TOMORROW! :( It hasn't really hit me yet! We have training eveyr day but Wednesday, and then the kids start next Monday.....I have LOVED my summer home.

Updates with Brayden:
*Lots of trouble sleeping due to molars coming in
*literally climbs in your lap with the same two books over and over (Opposite book and counting book)
