Catching up...

Okay, it's been months since I've posted and I feel terrible about it, but life kinda happened.... So, I'll do a quick overview and catch up.
Eva Jane Glick was born June 5th at 5:37 pm after a truly blessed delivery. My water broke that morning around 7, but labor didn't really pick up until around 2, so we opted to move things along with Pitocin and an epidural. We had some problems getting the epidural to work, but once it did, all was smooth sailing, and I only had to push for 2 minutes! I was shocked but relieved and excited to have another girl! She is absolutely gorgeous and loved immensely, especially by her big sisters. So, for the last 7 weeks, our days and nights have been filled with nursing, changing some incredible diapers (thus her nickname "Princess Poopy-Pants"), and in general just enjoying our new family member. She is a happy baby, and as the prophecy spoken over her said, "a joy to take care of".
The other big and exciting event that I want to share about is that it seems our dream of a new house is becoming reality!!! Praise the Lord! Our 'little house in the valley' has served us well over the last 8+ years, but we are now busting at the seams. We are currently in the process of finalizing our house plans and waiting for our loan to come through. We are praying fervently for the right amount for our mortgage so we can build the house we really need. I think I'll do a whole other post on our vision for our future home - 'Hebron House'. But it looks like even this afternoon we will be meeting with the builders to pick out colors, siding, carpet, door knobs etc... so exciting! Prayers are appreciated as we wait for the go-ahead from our lender.
Well, I guess that covers the big stuff... and since I'm trying to type one-handed while nursing, I'll quit this post, and hopefully will get back on track with my blog now.
