We have been busy, what can I say? We're expecting a sweet baby boy January 3rd. This pregnancy has been completely different from the first time around...
Anemia is not fun.
If you have anemia on a normal basis (I've been moderately/severely anemic anytime a test was done), you don't want to wait until pregnancy to treat it...You will likely be very weak, sick and feel like crap. My doc put me on iron 2-3 times per day each day, and it's made a huge difference.
I generally feel pretty good and I have just enough energy to survive a day with the toddler ;)
We've been working on the house and around the homestead. Caleb has done a ton of work, and he's got lots of projects lined up. This summer, we made the huge decision to work towards moving home [to Louisiana].
The house and property here is amazing. We love it.
However, we miss our family. We'll always consider the place we grew up to be home. Our babies should know their family, their extended family, LSU football and all the great cuisine that exists in Louisiana.
Here we are, at a point of transition once again. Honestly, by the time Caleb got out of the Navy, I was extremely burnt out on transition....it seemed never-ending. We never felt settled.
Here we are, about to start our seventh year of marriage and it seems like we're just getting settled. And then...BOOM. We're going to have a baby and then we're going to move.
But, you know what? We're having a son, a new baby, a brother for Emma. And we're moving home.
Home sweet home.
