this weekend, my mother-in-law, brother-in-law & his daughter
riley came to visit us. i hadn't seen riley since Christmas, and she has
grown so much!! she's now 10 months and is crawling all over the place
and getting really close to walking on her own. i always seem to forget
to take lots of pictures when they are here because i am soaking up
my time with her. my motherly instinct was definitely kicking in...
my desire to have a baby has come a long way since we first got married
(i would literally have nightmares about it then).
our plan is to wait until after joel is done & finds a teaching job,
which will be 2 years+ from now.
right now, we have really crappy insurance coverage that
doesn't even cover pregnancy costs. sooo yea, we kinda have to wait.
right now i am at peace with it, but i think it's going to get really hard
near the end.
ANYway, look how freaking cute my neice is!!
joel sang her very own song to her :) it melted my heart.
our kids are definitely going to be sung to/played to a whole lot.
our house is one that is quite frequently filled with music. hopefully our kids will appreciate that!
