It's been so hard for me to not write about this, seeing as how it has monopolized our lives for the last three months...and will most likely monopolize it for years to come...You may have noticed I haven't really written much at all recently because, I mean...what else is there to write about now?! The awesome responsibility of having a child thrills, terrifies and generally overwhelms me. Seeing the baby on the ultrasound last month was the most mind-blowing miracle I have ever experienced. Thankfully, I have not had to endure much sickness to speak of...Pretty much just tiredness and general aversion to food, but now that I'm moving into my second trimester, my energy and appetite are starting to come back. That is a wonderful gift because food did not appeal AT ALL for a long time and cooking was very un-fun.
The baby is due in December - the 22nd, to be exact. I was not thrilled at the prospect of the birthday being so close to Christmas, but I'm sure when we get there, I won't care that much. And Andrea assures me that being born in close proximity to Christmas is GREAT. We can't wait to find out whether it's a boy or girl. I'm already shopping for STUFF, but can only do so much, not knowing the gender...so I've got a lot of neutral stuff.
So, anyway, that's our big, earthshattering news. We are so thankful for this answer to our prayers.
And tomorrow, Grandpa is leaving on a multi-week trip to California! I am looking forward to a break from cooking (mostly) every night...Leftovers, here I come!
