2 weeks from today, is my due date! I am so excited! In 2 weeks, Emma might be wearing a pair of these little pink booties. While in my arms. I still can't believe that we are having another baby. There are some days that I still can't believe that I am a mom. And Eva is nearing 2!
When I found out I was pregnant for the 2nd time, I was slightly in shock. Joe and I have always wanted a fairly large family. The night of his Senior Prom, we talked about one day being married and having kids. Ya, we sat outside, looking up at the stars, dreaming of the family we would have one day. I can still remember everything from that night.
Joe was in a black tux. And I had on a green dress. A deep kelly green dress. Nothing fancy. It was long and form fitting. I wore strappy black heels. My aunt had done my hair and makeup. We went out to dinner with friends. Then we danced the night away. All of our friends went to a bomb fire afterwards. We went, but didn't stay all that long.
We ended up in my driveway. Talking. We knew that Joe was going to have to make the decision of where to live after he graduated. So we tried to embrace every minute that we had together. We laid in the bed of his truck and dreamt of the days to come. Of the little house that we would have. Of a wedding in our church. And of the babies we would have.
And here it is November 2nd. Exactly 2 weeks until my due date. Joe must call me twice an hour to check on me. J has the plane ready to go if need be. Manders holds his cellphone while the band performs. Everyone is on high alert. Just waiting for the call. Just waiting for Emma to make her appearance. And for Joe and I's dream to continue to play out.
We may not have had the most ideal of a beginning to our marriage. (I will blog about that later.) But our girls are the most precious gifts we could ask for. They are a combination of Joe and I. Made with our love. Little girls that have features and characteristics of the 2 of us. I just can't wait to meet Miss Emma. Our girls are everything that Joe and I used to dream about as teenagers. They have their daddy wrapped around their little fingers. Our love as a family just grows and grows. In 2 short weeks, we will finally get to meet Miss Emma Grace. ♥Anna Marie♥
About me? Well, I don't think I am that interesting, but here goes. I am married to the love of my life, Joe. We had an amazing wedding, it was definitely a Fairy Tale wedding. Just because Joe was there. I didn't need anything else. Just my Love. ;) And I am so excited to be married to my Prince Charming! We have a beautiful little girl, Eva who is 2 1/2 years old. And we have a 11 month old baby girl, Emma!
Joe and I have been working with his family's Ranch. We are preparing to take over the Ranch. It has been a lot of work, but well worth it. And we are Super Duper Excited! This will be a good experience for us and our daughters.
I have my college degrees in FCS and early childhood education. And I am happy to say that I gave up my career to be a mommy. Although, I have a feeling I won't actually ever work, it is nice to know that I have accomplished a big goal of mine!
Joe and I also have two dogs, Jack and Jill. And a new house. I spend a lot of my time with our family, but I also like to have a good time. One of my favorite things to do to relax, is to go watch Joe and the BBs perform. They are a local country band. And of course, I LOVE to shop! ♥Anna Marie♥
