This is what happens when we turn our heads for literally 2 seconds. He's a fast little boy who thinks he's a daredevil. And yes, that is a sharp metal fork in his hand. He especially likes to practice being a little daredevil when i'm stuck nursing Emery and can't move. It's like he knows he can get away with anything when i'm nursing her!

The Road Ahead...

A lot has happened since my last post! For starters, our sweet little baby Emery arrived! She was 4 weeks early, but completely healthy. This was such a blessing & an answer to many prayers. I'll probably share her birth story in a different post since it might be kind of long. The other exciting thing that happened is Eb finally decided on what he wants to do for a career/what to go to school for! We've been kind of putting off school for him because he was never really sure what he wanted to study. After having Emery, Eb kept talking about how it would be kind of cool to be the person that gives the epidurals. So, after looking at different health career options Eb decided that he wanted to be a CRNA (certified registered nurse anesthetist).  After his mind was made up Eb got right to work figuring out what he needed to do for school to pursue this career. We knew it was going to be a long road with lots of schooling and waiting, but we are up for the challenge! I am so proud of Eb for finding something that he will enjoy doing and for taking the initiative to get signed up for school. We realized that during the 2 years that he'll be in nursing school he will be unable to work. This is going to be the biggest challenge for us, but I know that we will be blessed during this time! It's going to be tough, but I know we'll be able to look back at this journey and see how we've grown and how we've been blessed. I just can't wait to see Eb in his cute little scrubs! :)
