Count your blessings

I am feeling so grateful today for so many things. Not for any reason in particular, just one of those days where I realize how truly blessed I am. I have a wonderful hubby that is so hard working, he is such a sweet dad, and can still bring a smile to my face when I need it most. I love him so much and am so glad I have him!
My sweet Sydney. My little buddy that follows me around and does everything with me. She has been having a case of the terrible two's lately, but I still just love her and want to squeeze her! She makes me laugh, she keeps me on my toes, she is such a joy! Even on the days when she makes me want to pull my hair out! =)
Our house, our car, clean running water, etc.....I haven't posted about our trip to Peru yet, mainly because I'm waiting to upload some pics from my mom's camera because we didn't take many pictures while we were there. But ever since we got back I have been so very grateful for the small every day things that make my life so easy and comfortable! We are so blessed to live where we live! I won't take for granted being able to drink water from my faucet, or go to a clean grocery store and buy groceries, or having a dishwasher, or washer and dryer. They don't have things like that down there. You haven't seen anything even close to poor until you have been to a country like that. I am grateful for the way we live.
Friends and family. They are the BEST. It is so great to have such an awesome support system! I love my family and my friends!
A healthy baby on the way. I am so grateful to Heavenly Father for blessing us with this! We are so excited, we have been wanting this for a while. We had some hiccups along the way, but now we just can't wait to meet this new addition to our family in August!!
Spring. Spring is on it's way and I am so ready and excited for the warmer weather, the sun and to be able to spend more time outside! Yay!
The gospel. I am so grateful for the knowledge of the gospel and the many blessings it brings into our lives. Without out it I don't know where I would be.
So much to be grateful for. Take the time to count YOUR blessings.

You Know....

You know you are preggo when....

-You wake up at 8, take a 2 hour afternoon nap, and still go to bed before 10 pm.

-You get heartburn after just THINKING about eating or drinking anything.

-You become exhausted by considering doing some house work.

-You can smell your child's poopy diaper from a mile away (hence the potty training)

-You have to go to the bathroom 35 times a day.

-You gag every time you brush your teeth.

-You have a mad craving for sushi and would eat it for every meal if you could.

Ahhh the joys! =) I'm almost 16 weeks now, I am starting to feel little flutters, and I am just trying to enjoy this pregnancy and relax with the one kid we have and the hubby before life gets even more crazy and hectic!

We are SO very excited to announce that baby #2 will be joining us sometime around the end of August!! It has been a long road to get to this point and we could not be more excited that we are adding to our family! I am just over 14 weeks, and my official due date is August 29th. We feel so blessed!!
