Way Too Long

It has been way too long since I have updated my blog. My computer is essentially dead, so I only have internet access for a little bit when Kyle is home and doesn't need his computer. Since my last update we had our ultrasound and found out we are having a boy! We are very excited and are talking about names a bit more, but we are going to try to keep the name a secret. Kyle thinks secrets and surprises are fun, so we want to keep at least something a secret with this baby. We are still job searching in preparation for our move to the La Crosse area. Kyle had an interview with Ecolab, and we were really hoping for that job, but they seem like they are not going to be filling the position any time soon. We have decided that we can't wait for them. They said they would make a decision by May 8th, but Kyle called and they said they hadn't filled the position and didn't seem like they were going to.
I am trying to stay optimistic about finding a job and moving, but I am starting to worry about having to move really close to my due date, or even staying here until after the baby comes. If that happens I will be pretty much all alone, which would really suck. If we are already down in La Crosse I know all of the "stay at home mom" friends I have would help, and I was really counting on that with the second baby. I honestly don't know how I will survive if we are in Eau Claire when the baby comes. I know our mom's will help, but they work, so I can't expect too much from them. We will just be praying hard core for a job to come up this summer. I would like to be down there by August 1st, but if we had the choice to move a few weeks before I was due or deliver in Eau Claire, I would rather move. I can't imagine packing at 9 months pregnant, but that is more manageable than being home alone with Ella and a newborn. It is hard enough to be home with just Ella somedays!

What else is new? Let's see, we celebrated Ella's second birthday. I can't believe she is that old! We had a small family party at Kyle's parents house, and Ella had a blast. I haven't updloaded our pictures from her birthday to the computer yet, but here are some that I stole from my sister.

Here is Ella displaying many of her birthday presents from my parents and sister.

I borrowed a butterfly cake pan from my friend Megan. It was decorated nearly as well as she does, but it was still cute!

  1. Hey Molly, Moving isnt too bad actually just before having a baby... we moved a month before Josiah was born and it was nice to have the "nesting" happen naturally since I HAD to set up a new house.... I really liked the excuse to get everything cleaned out and sorted out. The only thing was I didnt have a little one running around helping me set up a new house while being 8 months pregnant. We are moving again this pregnancy as well, Ill be 30 weeks when we move, so Ill also get to find out what its like to pack and move and unpack and re set up a house... oh yeah and figure out a new dr to see as well. Hopefully you can move well before your new little one comes- or at least be with your husband during all the transition times! Cute photos of Ella!!
