I'm Back

Good morning everyone. I know I know, I haven't blogged for a while. I was in Florida for three weeks over the Christmas holidays, and while there I found out that God is adding to our precious little family, so let's just say that I have had zero amount of energy for the last month. I just don't remember being this tired when I was expecting Allie, but I am sure I was! Anywho, I have been blessed to see my new little bundle of joy twice via ultrasound, and it is just as amazing as when we saw our little Allie bug. I am eight weeks tomorrow, and everything looks wonderful. Praise the Lord!! I went last week and was going to post of the wonderful news, but started experiencing a little bit of bleeding. So, I went yesterday to be sure that everything was fine, and the baby is growing just as he/she is supposed to and the little heart is just a beating. The doctor reassured me that everything is fine and not to worry about the bleeding, it is just normal for me. I did it with Allie but it is still unerving!! So anyway, I am shouting from the rooftops that God has blessed us with another little bundle of joy, and I cannot wait to welcome my precious little baby into the world! I did tell the doctor that I am giving the baby it's first spanking! I haven't felt all that well, but I will take it to have a precious little child! I will be having a c-section in the middle of August if all goes well. My sister Kelly is also expecting around the end of August. How awesome is that. We may have kissing cousins on our hands! Please pray for me and Baby #2!

Allie is doing wonderfully. She has such a wonderful Christmas, and is growing so much in every aspect of her life! I just love how she is talking and singing and running and just everything else. She is such a good little girl and I love her more every day!

I will end with some pictures of our trip to Florida. I promise to blog more in the future!
Allie still loves her Pa!! When he came in the room she was in his lap!

My mom has all of the characters from Rudolph, and Allie LOVED them, obviously! She learned all of the songs they sing before we left.

All of my parent's grandchildren. Lord willing two more will be adding before the year is over!

The little rascals. Let's just say they had a lot of fun playing with each other!

Hey, DANA,

CONGRATULATIONS! I tho't I heard something to that effect Sunday night but wasn't sure...must've missed "school" the day of the announcement. How wonderful! Did Aaron get to announce this miracle? It's becoming a tradition. Don't mess it up!

The pics from Florida were wonderful! I love large families with lots of chirren/GRANDchirren. Just truly is the epitomy of a blessed life in my opinion. And, your family is blessed. How fortunate your Mom and Dad to have so many "gems" on their GRANDparent jewelry...actual or virtual jewelry.

I will pray for your strength to return. I never felt better than when I was expecting. I could've been a lumberjack. My neighbor used to stay on me when I would be out in the yards doing phenomenal tasks! But, just felt like a $1,000,000! Hope you'll soon feel that way, too.

How exciting to have a little one growing in you again. Imagine how excited Allie is going to be and what a great big sister.

Happy for you, Little Mama. And, Michael. Will pray for a smooth sea for you in your pregnancy.

Love you BIG,

Dianne (-:

I'm with Amanda...about time you posted this! :) I am so excited for you and glad that the bleeding was something that just "happened" with no rhyme or reason again. I can't wait to see this new little Hataway!! Allie is going to be the best big sister.
