Just three weeks now until the big due date! There is lots of excitement, anticipation and preparation going on around here these days. I can’t help but think back to not too long ago when we were dealing with infertility appointments and wondering if it was even possible for us to ever have children. What a roller coaster of emotion that is to go through! It was just about a year ago exactly we drove from Michigan to London to learn the results of all the testing they had done. It was such a heart wrenching day not knowing what news we would hear but trying to be prepared for anything. I still remember all the range of emotion I felt, especially as we sat in the waiting room. To our huge relief we learned we could in fact have children and nothing major was wrong with either of us. Just some minor things that caused it to take so long for us to get pregnant. Here we are a year later preparing to meet our little one in just a few weeks! Our hearts are beyond grateful.
A few days back I finished up work over in the office and cleared my desk out. After over eight years working full time here with New Tribes if felt strange yet quite exciting. Things will look different for me now as I look to being a Mom and at least for the next year that will be my main focus.
Everything continues to go well with the pregnancy and we are so grateful! I have loved being pregnant but I’m also looking forward to finally meeting our little one and to finding out if we’ve got a boy or a girl! This past Saturday a good friend threw a Dr Seuss baby shower for me! It was so much fun and she put so much thought and detail into all the planning! It meant so much to see each co-worker who took the time to come and celebrate with us.
Pete has been busy with meetings and speaking engagements and developing Off The Grid. He’s also been such a huge help to me here around the house, especially as this belly gets bigger and normal things become more of a challenge to get done.
We’re missing Michigan lately as last year at this time we were settling in there and getting ready to spend the remainder of the year there. It was such a great time and we’re definitely missing the cider parties and time with family and friends.
Thanks for reading our updates here and hope you are doing well and enjoying this beautiful fall season! It is definitely the most stunning and beautiful time of year!
