Rockin my boat

So as many of you have heard, my best friend and loving husband lost his job last week. I have worried myself sick over the matter, I mean you can expect that when I'm about to have a baby in a matter of weeks. However, I have found a different kind of peace in my life at this time... I know that Heavenly Father is in control, I know he will not let us go through more than we can handle. I am falling deeper in love with my husband and son. I'm trying my best to be positive and give the situation to him every time I pray, knowing that I cant fix things myself. This baby coming is such a blessing in our lives, He is coming in just the time frame we need him. Does that mean I'm not worrying myself sick??? Ummmm NO and all of my friends and family would agree that I'm a worry wart. However its in the midst of storms that you find strange peace. I have friends that are so great, no one could ask for better. My ward is full of the best members. The friends I have made here truly my family not just my friends. They lift me in ways they have no idea. Thank you for that. My mom is a rock to me also, she always calls to check on me and I know her and my dad do their share of worrying. I'm so thankful for the power of the priesthood in my home and in my life. I'm thankful for the gospel and the temple, they bring my life so much peace. I truly wish I had something more positive and entertaining to post about, but for now this is my life as I know it. As for me physically I'm hanging in there with this pregnancy and continue to count down the days to meeting my little angel. Maverick continues to be the joy of my life, he is seriously one of the funniest kids I know. So thankfully his smile keeps me going. I pray that something good will come out of this chapter in our lives. As one of my favorite singers, Bob Marley put it in an all time great song, "please don't you rock my boat, cuz I don't want my boat to be rockin" That sums up how I feel, I hope my boat stops rockin soon and I can have a break from hard times.

A two year old....

Well I know that my son is the cutest kid I have ever seen, however it never fails that someone in public comments on that fact too. I cant help it, he just is. He is so full of life and the center of mine. I finally got around to taking his two year pictures. I think they turned out great. He was actually really good and it only took me 20 min. Its not so hard when your model is so darling. He is soooooo excited about being a big brother, He really loves babies and I know he will do well. Anyway, just a short little blog about my little man.

This one is so cute, he loves to say "nice" everytime he thinks something is cool. And Nephi has taught him to hold his hands up with the num one like touchdown!!!

I also thought I'd post our newest photo together, it was taken on the 4th of July. We try and take one every year in our red white and blue. Its not too bad considering I'm a huge preggo women. Thanks Amy for taking the picture.
