Unexpectedly Expecting

Yes, that is correct, less than a year ago I had my first baby and now I am pregnant with my second. As you can imagine it was quite a surprise. I cried a lot at first, but I have now come to peace with it and am actually getting excited. I have concluded that Heavenly Father has decided to bless me with a baby at this time to help get me through Taylor being gone, to give me something else to keep my mind on. Taylor will be leaving on Monday for basic training and will be gone for 8 weeks after which he will come home for 2 weeks and then leave again for 6 months. I think any women would be scared at the thought of having a baby and being pregnant without their husband around. That is not going to be the hardest part though because I do have family around. The hardest part is that he will most likely not be at the delivery. The timing of this stinks, but it is a wonderful blessing and who am I to decide when Heavenly Father can and cannot bless me. Our new little blessing is due the beginning of February.

Zoo Time!!

On Tuesday, we took our little family to the zoo. It was Jane's first trip to the zoo and she did great. We were there during nap time but she didn't really mind because she was so fascinated by all of the animals. She was such a trooper.

In line before all of the fun started.

Jane and daddy making funny faces.

Aren't they just the cutest?

You can't really tell in this picture, but the elephants were her favorite.

Taylor is showing us just how much fun Jane is having, can't you tell just by looking at her?
