Our family is very excited to announce that we are growing… by two feet, and a heart beat! We have been planning on starting a family for some time, but first had to come the house, and then once that happened we were on God’s timeline. He has blessed us with a growing, healthy baby!

{ Baby Santie will be joining the family in January 2016, and we couldn’t be more excited! }

As if adding a baby isn’t a big enough change, we also recently found out that John’s job will be taking him out of town. For those who don’t know, he is a Piledriver/Welder by trade. We have been very blessed that he hasn’t spent more time away from home. When we were first dating he was out of town and we only saw each other on weekends. For the past 5 years he has been home, and I’ve been quite spoiled! In mid September he will be traveling to Juneau, AK for a job building a super-cruise terminal. I have been so spoiled throughout our marriage that he hasn’t had to travel to job sites. But it looks like my luck has run out! 😉 Its a wonderful opportunity for him, but sadly it means he won’t be home to experience all the joys of pregnancy and our growing baby. Thankfully, it means I get to travel and site see in Juneau {as long as it’s safe during my pregnancy} and he will be able to come home for holidays and of course the birth of our baby!

With Johnny missing out on so much I was trying to figure out a way to document this special time, SO, naturally I thought, “BLOG!” I’m going to keep track of the pregnancy journey and our growing little one so he can check in. I also thought it’d be a wonderful way to not only get back into blogging, but also to look back and remember every moment leading up to our first {human} child {let us not forget Winston!}.

I hope you’ll follow along with us. 🙂
