Baby Madness!

Well! If this isn't a great start to our fall/winter, I don't know what is! On Friday, October 23, Christopher and I found out that in late June / early July, we are going to make Joshua a big brother!!! We couldn't be more excited about this addition to our little family, and are anxious for the time to fly. We've told just about everyone in our families, and now it's just a matter of time before our little bundle of joy comes into the world. We are looking more seriously at moving now, because obviously we'll need more space, but that can wait til spring!

So there's our news, thanks for all the well wishes everyone!

Much Love!

Mid October... SNOW?

this one's a little late, camp with the Hitchings family during the week before Jamie's wedding! Joshua had just been swimming with Auntie Em and Uncle Matt!

So apparently it snowed in parts of Maine yesterday, just didn't hit us, which is odd. It also snowed like crazy in Foxboro, MA during the Patriots game! Well, It's almost Halloween, I don't know where the time has gone!

Joshua is growing SO quickly, we took him to the Apple Farm with Chris's dad, and we had such a good time!

And he's learned so much on his own. At the last doctors appointment [15 month checkup] he was weighing in at 23 lbs (kinda stuck right there for the last 5 months, haha), 29 3/4 inches tall, and has the vocabulary of a 2 year old! he is almost forming somewhat sentences to get his points across. He knows his animals and can count 1 and 2, we're working on getting it up to 5! He knows what his favorites are, and he loves his daddy time!

Just another one of those pictures that makes me realize how BLESSED we are to have Christopher as a part of our lives, and how much of a responsibility Joshua was yet he took it head on with no regrets and no second thoughts... We love him, dearly, and are thrilled we get to share all of our life changing experiences with him!

Field Hockey is just about over, and I just recently started working at Ruby Tuesday's as a Host to get through the Holiday's with some extra cash! My class is going really well, we're on week 3 right now, and next week we start Clinical! EEK! I'm not sure where the time went for that either, but Wednesday the 28th of October is my first day of clinical at Lakewood! I'm excited because it means I'm that much closer to being OUT of school and finally having my CNA and being able to get a position that is more comforting and certain than anything else.

We've been looking around at apartments and houses, but we decided to just stick it out through the winter in our cozy little one in Skowhegan. It makes the most sense lately, we found a great babysitter for Joshua now that I'm back to work, and Rick & Rachel are right across the river in an emergency... I think things will fall into place perfectly when we're ready in the spring :)
