It is pretty unbelievable that it has been 8 months since my last post. I think back to July and it seems like time has completely flown by in a whirlwind. So many things are the same, yet I feel like our family has gone through a plethora of changes with many more on the horizon. First and foremost, I feel like a ticking time bomb. It was about two weeks after my last post that I found out that- SURPRISE, I was pregnant and now here I sit with less than a week from my due date, just waiting for little Luke to arrive. We are completely excited to have this third little boy and are anxious to add him in amongst the chaos and wildness we already experience. I have loved being the mother of boys- we never have a dull moment around our house and Hudson and Tate have brought us so much happiness. In addition to this third child, we found out Tim was accepted into the Periodontic Residency here at Pitt, back in September- so we will be Pittsburgers for another three years after he graduates in May.... seven years in Pittsburgh. If you would have told me that it was going to play out like this when we first moved here- I would have thought you were crazy, but we love Pittsburgh and it was definitely our first choice to stay. This, plus the need for a third bedroom, prompted the move we made in October to an actual house!! It has been heaven.....finally I feel like we have some space and can actually breathe. The boys love having their spaces to play, ride their bikes and escape outside. I, of course, love all these things as well.

Anyway, life is busy but so good. I keep thinking I will catch up and post on the past 8 months, but I think I am giving up on that thought..... so onto better days of blogging. Hopefully I will do better.

Here are some recent pics of the boys that I took back in December. It is still crazy to think that we will have one more tagging along here in a few days..... and yes, I am ready to be done:)
