Changes Again! :)

I haven't written in quite some time. I find it harder and harder to make time to do so as Caden gets older. Since his 1st birthday on May 5th he has been growing so quickly. He isn't a baby anymore, but a little boy!

He is waking all over the place and is developing quite a little sense of humor (he is always making Garrett and me laugh). He is starting to say some words including Go, Wow, Woah, Ouch, and tries to say Cat.
The last few months have been a whirlwind! So much has changed in our little family. The biggest thing is that God is blessing us with another child! Tomorrow I will enter my 12th week of pregnancy...almost to the 2nd trimester! I am praying that with the 2nd trimester my morning sickness will cease and I will have a renewed energy. I am due January 28, 2012. Garrett and I had just started discussing when we would want to have another baby and little did we know, I was already pregnant! This baby truly is God's doing. :)
We had our first ultrasound of this baby last week and it was amazing to see! I was far enough along at this appointment that the baby was moving a little bit for us. It was so cute to see him/her wiggling around. :) The heart beat was 171 bpm and everything was looking good.
With this new addition coming we need a bigger place and are planning on renting a house in December when our lease is up. In order to do this we really needed the security of Garrett having a full time job. So, since May we have been applying and applying and applying to every stable job we could find. And the day after we had the ultrasound Garrett had an interview for a full time custodian position at a school. A few hours later we received the call that he got the job! Wow, talk about God providing! We are ecstatic and are praising God for His Provision!
Like most of the time, our future is somewhat unclear to us, but it gives me great comfort and peace to know that it is in God's hands and His plans are always far better than my own.
