I will now acquaint you with our add ons.

Isaiah: Since he came first we'll start with him.
He loves: hot weather, water, motorcycles, Toyota's (especially his little '94 Toyota truck he got last month), music "good" music he'd say, concerts (even on DVD), his garden, and bacon and perhaps that should have been first.
He hates: Anything with mayonnaise but particularly pasta salad, cheesy music/movies/dialog, the saplings coming up all over our yard from our neighbors trees roots, a dirty kitchen, and going to sleep at 6pm (which he has to do for his job).
Since I've been pregnant for the majority of our marriage so far this might just be my extra sensitivity, but he can be a bit of a brute saying what he thinks with no coddling. We've been good for each other, him to toughen me up and me to soften him. He is becoming more and more of a wonderful father. Providence gets nannied from me (I don't like to admit it but I am a softy) so it's been good to have him push and stretch her more, plus he does all these fun things mom's just don't seem to be able to make time for, mostly playing. He works hard all day and more often then not comes home and makes the family dinner. He comes from a family of 10 (12 including parents) and would love his own to be as large, of course his mother started much younger...

Jubilee: She loves: Eating, her pacifier, pulling herself up on whatever she can get her hands on, and her sister.
She hates: Not getting whatever everyone else is eating, papa walking right by her when he gets home from work, and when mama doesn't pick her up.
Starting life with a roar Jubilee arrived early and so quickly the midwife was unable to get there in time. She was the most austere baby I have ever seen, giving people the stare down of their lives, while they try to coax a smile. Winning a smile from her is rare but very rewarding since she makes you work so hard for it. As she is getting older she has become more amiable so those hard worked for smiles are bestowed more often, in fact at home they're becoming quite common. She is a little papa's girl and will be a sweet angel for him while saving up all her fusses for me. She has an awful temper, way more fiery then Providence was.

I can't imagine life without these now very integral parts of our family. God has been good.

Return From Beyond

After a year and a half sabbatical, I have returned, I'm pretty sure at least. And I've brought along a couple extra people...

I've thought often of returning, just finally realizing I have over a year of forgotten memories and unknown silly things said or done took awhile. I want to remember them. So here I am. To begin here's the break down of the year. At least what you're gonna get off the top of my head and to prove my point.

February - Married Isaiah. Now I can finally blog about my own what exactly does that mean?

March - Found out I was expecting

Spring/Summer/Fall - Was pregnant and very pregnant, did things in that state.

September - Providence turned 5, now she'll be 6 in a few short months.

October - Moved to a cutsie house about 5 minutes from the old one. By cutsie I mean both it's about 1/2 the size of the old place, and we LOVE it.

November - Welcomed our daughter Jubilee to our family (don't worry there are over 9 months between, in case you're a counter)

Winter/Spring - Adjusted to said arrival.

July - Providence went on her first trip without me, to California with my family for an entire week. All involved did wonderfully, well that's slightly exaggerated for my part.

And to bring you up to speed completely I am expecting again in Feb/March of 2011.

So not to overwhelm, I will end there for now. Introductions to the new members of our unit forthcoming.
