We really want this.

Jonathan and I are still trying. We've been trying for about 5 months now. We are a little discouraged, but we are still comforted by the fact that God is in control and not us.

A good thing about us being stalled this long is that I can finally sign up for my job's disability insurance which will allow me to have paid maternity leave! That will be a HUGE blessing. Jon and I have already discussed that he would be staying at home for the first year or so while he finishes his Master's and I'll be working here at the University. I love my job and the people I work with. Jon is fresh out of school and has jobs that he can do from home, so we are in a very good spot.

As for finances, with my new job came a higher pay which will help us a great deal. We can survive on my paycheck but it will certainly help to have Jon work from home as well. We have a 403b (the non-profit equivelant to a 401k) and we also have been adding to our savings account regularly.

We recently moved from our townhome to a real house! We are still renting, but we have an extra room for the same price as our townhome. It was built in the 1920s and is ranch style with a very unfinished basement that we only use for storage. All of the floors are hardwood and we have a beautiful layout that will work well for whatever God throws at us :)

So, all in all, we're still waiting as patiently as possible for God to bless us with what He has in store for us.

Nothin. nada. vacancy.

It always seems that as soon as you want to get pregnant, everyone else gets preggers but you. Or is it just me? And it's usually people that either got married after you or people who aren't married at all.

Oy. God give me the peace to accept the things I cannot change.
