It's been quite sometime.

I haven't actually written on here in forever.  LOTS of stuff has happened since I last posted.  I think my last post was sometime in September.  In early October I found out that I am again pregnant.  Had my first ultrasound at 8 1/2 weeks because I was having some pain on my left side and they wanted to make sure all was well.  I saw my little peanut with a strong heartbeat.  I was so relieved.  I had another ultrasound at around 11 weeks.  The baby is still growing strong.  I have another appointment this Thrusday.
Madelynn is growing ridiculously fast.  SHE'S 2!  I can't believe I've got to spend 2 whole years with her.  But at the same time it seems like she's been part of my life forever.  I love watching her grow and learn.  She's so smart.  She has an awesome vocabulary.  She is potty trained.  She loves Dora, babies, doll house and playing kitchen.  She also loves to "read" books and be read to.  She is awesome at running.  She's trying to learn how to peddle a trike.  She loves to help me clean most of the time.  She always wants to help cook.  She hasn't quite figured out jumping yet and that frustrates her sometimes.  I'm not worried about it though.  She's my daughter.  I'm not graceful.  I'm sure I didn't learn to jump until I was 3 or 4.  She has a wonderful happy personality with this underlying attitude when things aren't going the way she thinks they should be.  She loves her Momma and her Daddy.  Cuddling is one of her favorite pass times.  She already loves to hear about Jesus.  She was so excited that we got to celebrate His birthday at Christmas.  She wanted Jesus to have a Dora party just like her.  It was cute.  I have been so blessed to get to raise her.  I look forward to many more years with this amazing little girl.
That's really all that's been going on with my life lately.  I hope God blesses you all in this new year.
