The light of my life. Our daughter is a beautiful, perfect, loving little girl that has changed our lives in so many ways in only 2 months! On Monday, June 28th and 9:35 AM she graced us with her presence and it has been strong ever since. The moment I laid eyes on her I knew we had gotten ourselves into something deeper than we could all handle! When they brought her upstairs with Chris to see Joshua and the rest of our families, he fell in love as well. I never imagined that Joshua would accept, love and care for his sister so quickly and so well, that it has almost taken me by surprise how much I can count on him for assistance. At just 2 years old, he has shown me so much strength and growth in himself, and so much love and understanding for this new addition to our family. He loves her, and she loves him, and it's so obvious it kills me sometimes! He is always needing to "hooooolllddd" her and "give Ucy a bubba" and help change diapers and every last thing he wants to be a part of, weither it's big or small, and it's made our life so perfect and it's made the adjustment so much better than we ever imagined!
Since Lucy was born our lives have taken a change but only for the better for all of us. Chris made the decision to go back to school, and begins classes next Monday online. He's taking 2 courses a semester and with what he had for schooling in Utah and Idaho, should be finished quicker than someone starting from scratch. I couldn't be more proud of him for making this choice for our lives and for our family, and I am going to do all I can to help support his decision and make sure he is successful at it. He is going to continue to work full time at T-Mobile and while we know this might be a struggle at times, it will always be worth it in the end. Along with that, I have gotten a job as well. After going back to school while I was pregnant with Lucy to get my CNA, I have finally decided to put it to good use. I begin work THIS Monday at Lakewood in Waterville and while my training will be daily for 3 weeks, after that I go to part time overnights working 16 hours a week. so 2 nights a week I'm gone during the hours the children are asleep, otherwise, I am home with them. It makes life seem so perfect and it is something that actually works for us for the time being. I'm sure once the kids are old enough for school I will want a daytime job so I'm home when they are and I am able to go to sporting and school events, but for now it's the best option for us and is one we are all content with.
The last 2 months have been amazing to say the least. Being able to spend every single day with Lucy Meghann and Joshua Joseph has made me realize that being a mom really was something I was meant to experience and I couldn't be happier about that way it has turned out. We truly are blessed with the most amazing children, ever.
Much love and blessings to all for wonderful second half of the year <3
