Me and Dustin are never ones to ask many people for help. Yeah, if we NEED someone, we will ask our parents, or VERY close relatives. But I’ve learned a very important lesson these past few months; let people help you, and always be thankful for the help you receive. You never realize how hard things can get until you reach that point.
As you know, me and Dustin have our baby girl on the way, and we just moved into a new house. Well, new to us. Anyways, we’ve lived in our house for 2 months, and it’s just now becoming our home. Because of our family, friends, and church family, we’ve been able to get the things we have needed since we’ve moved in. I never knew how much stuff we actually needed.
As with us having our little girl on the way, everyone around us has been such a huge help. She is so loved by everyone already. If it wasn’t for everyone helping us, I don’t know how we would have gotten everything that we have now. Dustin’s sister gave us a baby shower with our friends and family. Our church family gave us a baby shower, too, just this passed weekend, and we are so blessed to have so many supportive people surrounding us.
An update on baby girl: she is doing great. She is very active, constantly sitting in my ribcage. The past couple of days, it feels like she’s been doing cartwheels in my stomach. The heat of the summer has already been getting to me pretty bad. Today I’ve been doing a lot of work on the house, and I got too hot. It felt like I was never going to cool off. Finally I did though. Dustin has been such a huge help the past few days, I am so thankful for him. Somedays I feel like I don’t tell him enough how much I appreciate him. While I was gone yesterday for the baby shower at church, he cleaned up the house for me. Just little things, but the little things that he knew I noticed, and he knew would help me out because I hadn’t been able to get around to cleaning them. I’m so lucky to call him my husband. Even with him working thirds, he still does everything for me that I need him too.
Now I’m going to post pictures of our kitchen, so far. And of Elizabeth’s room. Her room is not near done, yet, either. We still haven’t decorated. We are working on getting a bookshelf in there this week, and we just got the crib set today and haven’t put it up yet.
