I am so happy to report I am beginning the 3rd trimester of my pregnancy. I have gained 21 lbs so far, still pretty good for me. No news other than that, just thought I'd share :-)

For those who read this that I have spoke with since Saturday, I didn't bring it up because I cry every time I do. I'm posting this so everyone knows and I don't have to talk about it anymore right now.
Saturday morning Malakai was hit by a FedEx truck. The vet hospital said he had no broken bones, but he did have some internal bleeding and for some reason either wouldn't or couldn't move his back legs. They said he had a 50/50 chance of surviving. They wanted to keep him overnight for observation, but we couldn't afford it. So they gave him morphine and sent him home. We made him a bed on our floor and for an hour he lay resting and then he died, Dirk and I both were with him when this happened. It was heart wrenching.
We are thankful that he was medicated so that hopefully he didn't feel much pain in the end. And I am thankful Skyler was sleeping the entire time and has no idea of what happened.
I've had Malakai for a long time and he has always been a member of the family. I've never known a more gentle animal and I loved him dearly.

It's been a LONG time since my last post. I appologize. I have no good excuse. I can only say I'll try to do better in the future.
So what's new?
Avery is doing well and loves and misses everyone. Especially his dear mom, at least that's what I tell myself.
Skyler is now 3! Can you believe it! It seems like just yesterday I was in that delivery room pushing him out. :-)
I'm at pregnancy week 25, almost to my third trimester. I've gained 18 pounds so far which for me is awesome. Hopefully, I won't pack on a ton more in the next couple of months. I'm having REALLY awful hip pains. I'm not sure what's causing it but walking is extremely painful. Going to the pool is a great relief so Skyler, Dirk and I have spent as much time there as possible. Other that that I'm feeling great.
I'm loving summer. It has rained more than I could hope for. The days haven't seemed too hot. I can hear the birds chirping in the morning and the crickets at night. BUT...
I really long for the fall. My favorite time of year by far! I can't wait for the leaves to change their colors, light jackets, football and apple pie.
I hope everyone I love is doing well. Congratulations Jess on your new place, your sister couldn't be more proud.
