Our Growing Family
We have two beautiful gals living with us, both moved in recently. Their stories are not mine to tell but I figured I would mention their existence seeing as how they will likely come up in any future stories I tell about life in the Lockhart household.
Brandy moved in on New Years Eve Day. I have known her since she was a small child and she is an honorary family member, she spent much of her childhood with my family. She's 21 now and all grown up. Hopefully her fresh start here in Nashville will be enjoyable and a good adventure.
Jessi, my little sis, moved in last week. I am soooo glad to have her here. She kept me alive at the beginning of this pregnancy and just happened to be in town to visit again when I ended up spending a week in the hospital. We are hoping this time while she is here is way less eventful! lol. She will head to St. Louis for a while but other than that I am hoping she is around a lot. And she does have a dog...which I don't mind as long as we are in agreement that I don't have to pet it or clean up after it...which I do once in a while but I don't want the ultimate responsibility for it. If that makes sense. Cami is a good dog though, doesn't really bark and just follow Jess around...basically she leaves me alone. Perfect. :)
Lance and I love having people in our home. Whether it's a quick visit or if someone needs to stay a while. We are blessed to have the space and both of us know what it's like to need somewhere to land during unsure times and times of transition. For now it's is these two ladies, in the future, who knows who else it will be. But this is one way we can easily help someone out. They get the joy of being around this prego lady who is hungry all the time, unreasonably emotional and a little needy. Hopefully it's a good trade off :)
