I realized I hadn't updated in a while so I thought I'd give a quick update on what's going on! Judd has been off of work so we've really been enjoying our time together. It's been SO wonderful to have him home...for lots of reasons! He's been such a big help with Caroline when I'm exhausted or feeling particularly lazy...which happens a lot these days. I find myself totally worn out by about 3pm every single day. I could nap for several hours every day if I had the chance! Caroline is definitely coming into the toddler stage, which is probably why I'm so tired all the time. She's really starting to get mischievous! Today she had two crackers in her hand and I couldn't figure out where they came from. She had gone into the pantry, opened the box, opened the sealed cracker package, and confiscated two crackers for herself! Smart kid! She's really starting to talk and she understands even more than she can say! We're loving hearing her talk to us!

Amelia is doing great. She's incredibly active compared to pregnancy with Caroline. She moves alllll the time. I really love to put my hands on my belly and feel her feet slide across! Pregnancy is an amazing thing! My tailbone pain seems to be getting just a little better, which is a blessing. I'm 34 weeks today and next Wednesday will be my first day to get my cervix checked. I'm anxious to see how it compares with my pregnancy with Caroline. By 35 weeks with her I was already 3cm and 50% effaced. They say every pregnancy is totally different so I'm anxious to find out! At this point, I just want her to be healthy when she makes her way into this world. I feel a little more nervous everyday about having them 16 months apart - but I'm so thrilled that they'll never remember life without each other. Sappy, huh? :)

Our anniversary is also next Wednesday. Three years with the most wonderful, patient, funny, loving man that I know! No one else could make me feel as special as he does. He's such a hard working man with such an attentive heart. He is an absolute wonderful father. Caroline lights up when he comes in the room! Above all else, he is a Christian man and leads our family. I couldn't ask for more than that! I'm so honored that God chose me for him! I love you, Judd!

I guess I'll attempt a belly picture sometime soon...but I warn you - it's not a pretty sight! ;)
