Pirate loves being involved and helping me do stuff. 
This is a sweet video of my little one helping to make banana bread. 

Wow! It seems like it’s been months since I've blogged last.

We moved into our own apartment in the beginning of December, and it has been amazing! I'm really loving being a wife and a mom; I know that I've been one for a while, but having our own place really makes it feel all the more real and actual. I don't know if that makes sense, but having our own place for me to take care of is just a whole new exciting thing!

People keep asking me when I'm going back to work. I tend to feel pressured to feed them a fluffy answer about just not working until Pirate's older, or make an excuse as to why I'm not a "contributing part of society". The thing is this, being a helper to my husband and taking care of our child and our house is my priority. And it's not because I "have to", and it's not a "you've made your bed, now sleep in it" type of thing.
God has given me the privileged duty of being a wife and mom, and for me that trumps all other vocations or pursuits. Taking care of my family and our house is my act of obedience and worship to God. I feel that the home is where I'm supposed to be. It's where I have a heartfelt desire to be. I believe that God is blessing us for that and He faithfully provides for our every need.

I'm reading a book right now called, Biblical Womanhood in the Home, it's published by Crossway books. It is really worth checking out. It better articulates a lot of what I feel and am trying to say about this topic. I haven't finished it yet so I won't elaborate too much more than that. :)
Alright, it's time for me to sign off, and get some stuff done.

I look forward to sharing with you the stuff that we do! I hope everyone has a great weekend.
