BIG Changes!!

Well, we have much exciting news to share since our last posting on July 2nd. Joel and I are so excited to announce that we are pregnant again, with what appears to be a very healthy baby so far! I am 12 weeks along and have heard a precious heartbeat several times already. Doctor says the first trimester is right on track and looking great! We will have a repeat c-section on Friday January 23rd. While I dread the surgery/recovery, I am so pumped to actually know the date for sure and not have to wonder...will today be the day?? That alone causes much anxiety for Hillary the planner (and therefore Joel, the listener) :)

The next exciting change is that we put our little house on West 8th Street up for sale. I'm full of mixed emotions as I think about leaving our first little house. We've created so many memories here....from tearing out kitchens and bathrooms to bringing our first baby home. I'll definitely be sad when we pack up all our things. On the flip side, Joel and I have had so much fun planning and dreaming about our future. We can't wait to be in a neighborhood with a bigger home for our family to grow! As of right now, we're really excited about 2 homes that we'll be going through a second time on Friday. We've had several people go through ours and are interested, but nothing final has happened yet. We're showing it again this Thurs. and Friday to two new people! Pray that they LOVE IT! :)

Our heads are kind of spinning with all these new responsibilities and changes. We feel so blessed with what we already have and continue to seek God's guidance in lots of near decisions! Pray that all works out and the right doors are opened and closed.

Stay tuned for recent pics of our crazy kid who NEVER stops moving. The Carignan's took Camden's pictures last Sunday and we can't wait to see what they captured. If you can only picture this....the only thing that would make Camden smile in the 120 degree heat was saying...."don't you eat that...it's ca-ca." Joel and I felt like idiots and Wade and Steph probably thought so too, but what are you gonna do? We had to make him laugh!

Hope everyone is doing well! Have a great rest of the week!

New Videos!

We thought we'd share some video of Camden enjoying his birthday cake, as well as walking! He is absolutely everywhere and continues to bust the same spot on his chin about every other day. He does pretty well with a band-aid, but every once in a while I'll catch him chewing on it. Ha! Hopefully the accidents will subside once he gets a little more sturdy. Hope everyone has a great 4th of July!

Notice the tamborine he carries around CONSTANTLY....this is part of the band in a box we described last time. Awesome.

Camden loves to smile, laugh, and be a busy boy. Kendall has her daddy right where she wants him!!
