Long time no see, here's baby number three!

Wow so it's been like a year and a half since my last blog post?  I have had a lot going on.  Like, a lot a lot.  I'll do a quick little overview and then (maybe?) do at least some sort of periodic updates.

First up: I now work outside the home full time.  I'm in "Documents and Records Management" which is essentially lots of computer and database work.  I like it; it's something I'm good at, and I have some great coworkers.

Second: we bought a new house.  We needed some more room, and this house delivers.  We love it!  There's still some boxes to unpack and spaces that we have to figure out how to organize, but so far so good.

Third: We had a third baby!

Not only did we have so much going on, it was all happening at the same time.  I started working in January, at the beginning of my third trimester, and worked right up until the day before I delivered at 41 weeks 6 days.  I was pregnant, working full time, we moved in with my MIL for a little bit to sell our old house, got our house sold, bought a new one, moved again, bought a new truck for my husband, and had a baby.  The new house, truck, and baby all happened in April, while both of us were working full time and sharing childcare duties at home, and while I was very pregnant.

We have opposite schedules so we only need help with the kids for 3 hours Monday and 3 hours Tuesday- the rest of the time there's a parent home.  It's been working really well for us, and we're managing to still find time to be a family together most days.  Everything has been so frantic, it's time to try and find our new groove.
