A very Eschbach update

It's been a busy few months here in the Eschbach house!  Every day is busy, as our little dude is changing and growing rapidly, and we are amazed every day at what he is learning and doing.  Like all of a sudden he knows how to push stools and chairs up to the counter and get at just about anything he wants.  Or how he has figured out the magic of light switches and how fun they are to flip on and off.  And closing least he hasn't figured out how to open them :)  He is a busy little boy and we are enjoying him so much!  He's is still not talking much, but has LOTS of words and noises that are so fun to listen to.  He's pretty good at communicating, though, and through grunts, signs, and his words, I can usually figure it out what he wants/needs. 

But the biggest change in the Eschbach house is the coming of baby #2!!  We are so excited for our family to continue to grow and can't wait to welcome our next sweet little one into our lives towards the end of October.  It's a little crazy to think about and I definitely get overwhelmed some days at the thought of two little ones, but I keep praying for the Lord to give me strength and wisdom! 

Calvin can't wait to be a big brother!  He loves saying hi to the baby and kissing my tummy!

We feel so blessed in our home right now! I've never had to struggle with horrible morning sickness, but I am ready to start feeling more like myself.  Throwing up every morning is definitely not fun, and it has lasted longer this pregnancy than with Calvin.  But with friends who are miserably sick all day long, I try to keep perspective :)  Just like when I was pregnant with Calvin, though, I am blessed again with several friends who are expecting their next babies and several of us are due within a few weeks of each other!!  How fun!!

I'm going to try and do a better job of writing "pregnancy" updates, just so that I look back one day.  Life is only going to get more hectic once baby #2 comes, and I want to keep jotting down memories and stories when I have the time, so I don't forget them!! 

I was blessed with this verse today at church...
"My purpose is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely Christ, in whom are hidden ALL the treasures of wisdom and knowledge"
Colossians 2:2-3

What a blessing to know I don't need to figure out all the answers...but I can lean on the One who does!!


  1. yay Sarah! Congratulations! SO much FUN in your future. What a delightful time of life. Hugs!

  2. What a great update! You are a trooper to consider throwing up everyday not 'horrible morning sickness'! Thank you for sharing the verse, too. It was quite an encouragement to me, too! Can't wait to follow your baby updates! ;)

  3. aawwwww! congrats to you!!!!! how sweet, so fun! and yes, soooo overwhelming :).....Love the verse you posted! Excited to read your baby updates :)

  4. Congratulations!!!!! The advice someone gave me when I was pregnant with Ellie was--the first few years are really hard, but then it is SOOOO worth it having kids close together... I love it, so whenever you feel crazy, call me!! It is crazy, and hard, and that's okay!! :)
