Exciting news and an internet break.
I didn't intend to neglect this blog for over a month now, but life happens!
My best excuse is that I have been preoccupied, tired, and sick much of the time. Which brings me to my news: we're expecting another little one early next April!
Our babies will be sixteen and a half months apart, a fact which has gotten us a few raised eyebrows but most share our excitement and don't write us off as crazy, thankfully :)
It feels a little unreal - in many ways I feel like I'm still adjusting to being a mama, getting used to the fact that we have a child and soon we'll have two? But I am thankful and joyful at this gift of a new little life! Being Joshua's mommy over the past ten months has changed me and shown me a kind of love I didn't know before...so it can only get better as God grows our family.
Blogging, facebook, looking up information, watching tv online, email, pinterest...really, how could one survive without ready access to these things!
But Loris and I have talked about it and came to the conclusion that it's been too much of a distraction over the last while. Between his interest in soccer (and the growing desire to be constantly checking scores and keeping up on Italy games) and my often mindless flitting about on facebook and blogs, we decided that we just want the freedom of more easily choosing other things to spend our time on. It's not that what we use the internet for is bad in and of itself, it's just been too easy to waste time!
I'm looking forward to spending more time reading books, more time in the Word, more undistracted time with my husband and little boy when we're home together. I'm looking forward to writing more without the distraction of "just opening up the internet to check a few things..."
And to clarify, we are not against the internet! We just feel that for us, this is the right choice for right now. I'll still have access elsewhere so I do plan on posting here periodically and keeping up with some of you.
Well I believe it's time to indulge in a big bowl of vanilla yoghurt with strawberries...baby needs its evening snack you know!
