belly shots

our good friend brittany came over and took some shots of our little family with baby inside. they turned out so wonderfully! I didn't take that many pictures when I was pregnant with eden and regret it so much. now, I at least have evidence of this pregnancy. only 28 days left until the due date!

every day.

every day I wake up to this little girl climbing into my bed. she usually has a sleeping beauty in one hand and little mermaid in the other. her curly hair is a beautiful mess. a cup of strawberry milk later and an episode of dora or two and we're good to start the day. she is my dream girl and I'm not quite sure why I am allowed to be her mother. thanks be to God. here's to you eden adeline.

an overdue update...

Eden telling Daddy how it is
Wheeling my niece, June, and Eden around in Mexico

My first sewing project

Eden's new friend in Mexico

we're getting close!

well, I thought that I would become a better blogger after I graduated...but it looks like that hasn't come true. many things have happened since my last bloggery. I GRADUATED from nursing school at the university of texas at el paso. it feels wonderful. I take my state boards soon, so keep me in your prayers. I have been enjoying every minute of taking care of my little girl and being at home. I don't have any plans to work any time soon. we have a little less than 6 weeks until this new little baby comes along and I have zero desire to rush into a job.

pete has been super busy building homes this summer. we are so happy that some teams aren't scared away by the violence or swine flu, and are still coming to build homes for families that need it so desperately. eden and I got to go on a build 3 weeks ago with my home church. it was a family affair that included my dad, brother-in-law, sister-in-law, brother, and 2-yr-old niece. we built two houses for two sweet families and were treated to a home cooked meal by both families in appreciation. I LOVE mexican food and could it eat 3 meals a day. good thing, I guess. eden loved playing in the dirt with the kids and sleeping in her princess sleeping bag! the 3 of us slept in the church nursery and it was cozy and sweet.

we've been trying to get ready for the baby little by little. we got a double jogging stroller and a bassinet. eden and I walk 3 miles every morning and I am hoping that the new baby learns to like walks faster than eden did. I have also been learning how to sew, so I can make my sweet babies clothes. It is a lot harder than I thought, but very fun.

So....there is our update. eden continues to amaze us with her memory and singing abilities! I will post some movies of her singing soon.
