After about a year of forgetting about this blog and a few conversations with Nels about just shutting 'er down I've decided that I love writing this too much to quit. Blogging has been a fun way for me to look back at the progress of our house and some of our major life events. Nels always encourages me to write things down anyway because its always been one of the best ways for me to communicate. Especially with two little kids it seems like I can't really get out much so this is one of the ways I can have some sort of creative outlet.
Also... lets face it I'm a Pinterest addict so instead of just spending hours on Pinterest I thought it might be good to actually write about the loads of things I've actually attempted from Pinterest.
With all of my re-establishing the blog ideas in mind, I will begin by documenting the hugest update in our lives and try to add some house stuff very soon.
Ok, so the biggest change in our lives in the past few months has been the arrival of our sweet little girl Violet Helen Bieber on July 22 2013. I am so in love with this person it is crazy. The transition from 1 to 2 kids has been fairly smooth partly due to how well Violet sleeps and also the incredibleness of my husband:)
My labour and delivery with Violet was quick and painful... 5 hours start to finish. Kind of a chaotic experience compared to Molly which is funny because Violet has been such a calm, peaceful baby. Without going into too much detail I will say we may have had a nurse who was panicking quite a bit and delivering the second time around may go faster but that doesn't mean you don't want to die because of the pain. Praise the Lord once again for the laughing gas... I owe my life to that beautiful invention:)
One of the most exciting feelings I've ever had was hearing we had another girl. There are a few moments in life that make living so rich and that moment when you deliver a human being is definitely one of them. Knowing that Molly would have a sister and we would get to experience all of the girliness of life another time makes me very excited.
Watching Molly grow into the big sister role has also been one of my greatest joys and it actually brings me to tears sometimes when I see her and Violet together. Don't get me wrong sometimes Molly isn't a the most gentle but there are those precious times when she wants to hold Violet or calls her cute or lights up when she smiles that make me so excited for these two sisters:)
Nels and I often look at each other and marvel over how we created these two people. It really is a miracle and I truly feel blessed.
