Pregnancy Newsletter


Well as I briefly mentioned in our last post, our trip to Visit Glen in April was a fun filled successful trip. What I failed to mention at the time was just how successful that trip really way ;-) YES...Glen and I had decided once he got the job with Behr Paint we would start trying for baby #2 (he started the job December 1, 2009) unfortunately his job required him to move to Virginia which only meant our plans had to be put off until we were together again as a family. Well...Jillian and I joined Glen in Virginia on May 1st, on May 3rd we took a pregnancy test and it was confirmed just how successful our trip to Virginia really was.

Glen was the first to discover the positive test sitting next to the sink. As Glen came out of the bathroom he had one of biggest smiles on his face and tears in his eyes, he proceeded to show me the test, and so our real adventure here in this beautiful state of Virginia begins.

This week we are officially 20 weeks pregnant, we are at the half way mark. Not only are we at the half way mark, but our sonogram just confirmed "IT'S A BOY!!!! Jonas Gregory Gause is due to join our/his family January 2, 2010.

We are all (especially big sister Jillian) super excited!!!

Hello everyone! First I would like to apologize for such a long hyades, however many thanks for all that have encouraged me to get back to blogging. It goes without saying that in the past four (+) months the Gause family has gone though many exciting changes, and unfortunately I had to neglect Jillian blog. I got so far behind that I even questioned whether or not I would have it in me to continue and catch up. I am hoping that pictures will speak louder than words...ENJOY.

Before May 1, 2009 Jillian and I tried to squeeze in as much time as possible with our friends...In April Jillian and I took a trip to Virginia to visit Glen for Easter and do a little house hunting (which was a huge success ;-) . While we were on our mini vacation, we went to DC (on three separate occasions), we were fortunate enough to be there as the Cherry Blooms were blooming. We were also fortunate enough to be able to go up into the Washington was definitely a pretty exciting, adventurous and fun filled trip. Easter in Virginia 2009 The DC Zoo...Easter Sunday 2009
April 30, 2009....the day we moved out of 305 Woodgreen Lane, Winter Springs, Florida Jillian was the last to lock and shut the door. Mother's Day 2009, Glen and Jillian took me to camden yard to see a Baltimore Orioles Vs. New York Yankee baseball game. Jillian has always had a love for horses, so when given the opportunity for her to take private lessons we immediately signed her up.

In My Daughter's Eyes

While driving home from work tonight, I heard the most amazing song entitled "In My Daughter's Eyes". It seriously brought tears to my eyes, the words really spoke to me in a way that I have never felt before, and so I had this incredibly overwhelming need to include this song and these pictures to Jillians blog.


In my daughter's eyes I am a hero
I am strong and wise and I know no fear
But the truth is plain to see
She was sent to rescue me
I see who I wanna be
In my daughter's eyes

In my daughter's eyes everyone is equal
Darkness turns to light and the
world is at peace
This miracle God gave to me gives me
strength when I am weak
I find reason to believe
In my daughter's eyes

And when she wraps her hand
around my finger
Oh it puts a smile in my heart
Everything becomes a little clearer
I realize what life is all about

It's hangin' on when your heart
has had enough
It's giving more when you feel like giving up
I've seen the light
It's in my daugter's eyes

In my daughter's eyes I can see the future
A reflection of who I am and what will be
Though she'll grow and someday leave
Maybe raise a family
When I'm gone I hope you see how happy
she made me
For I'll be there
In my daughter's eyes
