So I'm 39 weeks pregnant today. I'm counting the days, hours, minutes until I get to meet Isaiah and be a mother of two. I've so been looking forward to this day that I've sort of forgotten what I'm giving up at the same time. Hannah turned 18 months this past week and it has been such a wonderful 18 months with her. She is such a joy to be around and even when she tests me beyond what I think I can do, she melts my heart the next second and she teaches me a new capacity for love. So now I'm sitting here realizing that these next couple of days, hours, minutes will be the last as a mother of one. She has all my attention, love and smiles and pretty soon, that will all be split. Now, don't get me wrong, I know you're capacity for love doubles, triples and multiplies beyond measure with each child you have. But I also realize that I do want to cherish these last moments as a mother of one, and love up on her every minute that I can. Below are some of my all time favorite pictures of Hannah and I. My special little girl.

So Hannah has really taken off in the last couple of weeks with trying to talk. Now, don't get me wrong, her words aren't necessarily very enunciated, but we get the general gist. It's pretty cute. Below is a video of some of her words, a video of her dancing at dinner and then one of her first ponytail!!! So cute. I had failed to go out and buy her any bows so my dear friend Liz fixed that problem and bought her all sorts of bows. It looks great! When I can get her to keep them in. :)

So Hannah is adjusting well although her sleeping at the new house has not been perfected just yet. She's enjoying all the new space though and is getting to be such a big girl! :) Below are some pictures of us moving (I think the day before the move), ones of us at the zoo the other day and one of her playing in her new playroom.
