Beach life

Last week I packed up Keaton and I and headed to the beach with my parents. It's always hard for Jeremy to go because of work, but I never pass up a chance to take my girl on an adventure! Here are some pics from the week. 

We had a blast. And cannot wait to go back next summer... With our 6 month old brother or sister. (: ha. 


Sundays and Mondays

We spent our Sunday at my grandmas as usual. Jeremy was an usher at church and did a wonderful job. Looked like a stud, of course. :) 

Keaton and I... Well, we got in a selfie before church. 

Later that day, Jeremy and I enjoyed some time on the swing. Like we do most nights... But I started a BAD habit:

I know this pregnancy is going to "show" very quick! It already is. And these late night cravings won't help. I am going to need to do better.

Today (Monday) my mom came over to help refinish a desk and work on some other furniture as we get it ready for the new baby's room. Then later, Erica came with her kiddos. They enjoyed an afternoon playing. We even rode the Kabota to feed the rabbits and check on "jeh-mees" turkey eggs. They all piled up on the 4-wheeler pretending to drive. They were so cute. 

Days like these sure make me thankful to have a job where I can enjoy the sun, take time with all the kids and get things done around the house. I sure am not going to like August coming so quick! Back to reality. 


Rainy day bliss.

The simplicity of a one year old and all they need to be entertained: Warm weather, a little bit of sunshine, a drizzling rain and you have the perfect afternoon. 



So, about a month and a half ago we found out some big news...

Number 2 was on its way. At first Jeremy and I panicked. We weren't even trying and (at the time) Keaton wasn't even a year old. She wasn't even walking. Not out of diapers. Not even out of her crib! We were going to have TWO under TWO! 19 1/2 months apart to be exact. 

We couldn't believe it. Another little miracle headed our way. They say The Lord never gives you more than you can handle and boy are we hoping that's so! 

I went about two weeks ago to the doctor to see how far along we were. We were uncertain because of "irregular" periods since I had quit nursing Keaton. And when we saw this, we knew we couldn't be happier. 

Baby Lindler #2! In the picture: 7w 5d. 

We were not as far along as we thought which ended up finding out, we had us a 'honeymoon' baby. Nothing could have been more perfect. Heartbeat was healthy: 176. Baby looked great and all we were doing from here is letting him/her continue to grow. 

We were so excited we couldn't wait to announce to family and friends! 

You know, God has continued to bless is with amazing things. He gave us Keaton who has been a blessing from day one. She's a great baby. She goes to whoever, sleeps through the night, eats anything, isn't too fussy, listens (sometimes. Ha.) and we couldn't ask for more. So, we know this baby will be another wonderful blessing. We hope. (:

We keep hearing that if your first is good, stop there. Well, I guess we are going to test another theory. Here's to baby Lindler #2!
