Baby #2.


Leif and I are expecting another Jacobsen. January 6, 2010 to be exact. Since the birth will be by c-section then probably more like December. And Riley will have just turned one in November. Really? Two under two? God help me! We found out Saturday night, which was April 25th, the day Riley turned 5 months old. I cried because we weren't trying and we had a plan. Leif was excited and still is. God has His own plan though, right? Always :) The night we found out we were surrounded by the same friends who were there the first time we found out. I was so grateful for that!

I'm still really unsure about how I feel. I'm starting to get excited because I miss being pregnant and it was like yesterday, that we had a newborn. I'm excited to do that again... If everything goes well. After this I will actually take my birth control and we'll wait a few years before the next one. I hope! At church yesterday the second song we sang was "It is Well with my Soul" and I needed to hear that. It blessed me and gave me a peace I wasn't feeling at all. God is good. And now Riley will have a playmate and experience having a best friend that's also a sibling. Something I did and still get to experience. Riley was excited when we told her she was going to have a little brother or sister, as you can tell from the picture. :)

Please pray that I stay healthy and encounter no morning sickness! I had a perfect pregnancy with Riley and I would like to have another, especially since Riley is becoming more mobile. And if I do happen to get morning sickness that it won't be too bad and I'll have strength to play and keep up with Riley. Oh and Leif ;) It looks like Oregon is more than a sure thing now, so pray for that as well.

Although this is the second unplanned pregnancy for us, God has great plans and knows what He's doing. Hallelujah! Now off to take prenatal vitamins, do some prenatal yoga, search for a jogging stroller and start eating healthy again.

crazy! well girly and mr, i'll be praying for you! it will be wonderful for your lovely riley girl to have a companion so early on. i'm so excited for you guys!

ps, leif: dang that stinks i didn't happen to visit while the brewery was having an art walk! dang. oh well. i checked out basically as many artists from the brewery as i could and i think my style doesn't really mesh well with much of what i saw. but i think i need to go check it out in person. i guess i'll have to treck down to socal in the fall or something!

also... you guys in oregon = closer to moorea + moorea visiting and bringing friendship and treats.
