Over the last couple of days I have realized how happy I am. We found out two days ago that we will be having our second little girl join our family. The news was a little bit shocking at first- I was certain it was a boy- but the news has brought us so much joy already. Knowing the gender of the baby always makes it more real for us; calling her a "she" and talking about all of the things we can't wait to teach baby sister about makes her a real part of our family.
When I was in junior high I remember frequently being asked the question, "What do you want to be when you grow up?" The answer came out "teacher", but I always knew that more than anything I just wanted to be a mom.
Here I am. 28 years old, 2 beautiful children and one on the way, and I am living my dream. I realized that Dallas could go to school for the rest of our lives, I may never have an iPhone, I may only visit the Alps and Hawaii through a friend's blog, we could always drive old cars with creaky struts and squeaky brakes, and live in this apartment with a 10x10 back yard, and you know what? I would be happy forever. Heavenly Father has blessed me with those things that are most important: Family, friends, and a testimony of my Savior, Jesus Christ, and his true and everlasting Gospel.
I am happy because I know there is nothing else that I need. And I am so, so thankful.
