I took the job!

I guess that's all there is to say. It's been an emotional week for me, but I feel like this is best and definitely the way God is leading our family for now.

Now we just have to work out child care for our little girl. There's a church daycare right across the street from my new workplace that has very high ratings from the state. Knowing our daughter is right across the street would help me and enable me to nurse during my lunch break.

Thanks to you all for your prayers - we just need to keep praying that our house will sell soon and that we find the right child care for our girl.

an offer...

...not on the house, on me.

Yesterday afternoon I got an offer for a full-time job. It sounds really good - a little suburban library in a small town doing the children's librarian stuff I love doing. For working twice the hours I work now, I'd make almost four times the salary, plus better benefits. It'd be safer than working in the downtown environment I work in now (more stay-at-home moms, less homeless guys).

But then I wouldn't be the stay-at-home mom. Our daughter would be in day care at least a few days a week.

We've been praying and praying and I feel like it's probably best to take the job, assuming they can give me a decent amount of maternity leave, but then I know it will be really hard to not be with my daughter as much as possible.

Please pray for us as we make this decision.

Baby Name Game #3

Here it is. We think this one is pretty easy.

P.S. We're very excited to be heading out of town this weekend to the beach to celebrate my Nana and Dado's 80th birthdays.

Baby Name Game #2

Okay, time for the next letter - here's the clue:

DRULEIPA (_)_ _ _ _ _ _ _

Unscramble the word and the first letter is the next to add to your list. Congrats to all who figured out last week's word.

Also, we should clarify the clues are going to be for our girl's first and middle names. We thought we'd do the last name too, but that's hopefully obvious to those who know us, and not something I like to put up on the internet for all to see.
