News and Updates

We have been in our new apartment for three or four weeks now and we love it.  It’s so nice to have that extra space.  I still have a lot of unpacking to do as boxes fill up the floor of the baby’s room, but I’ll get to that.  My shower isn’t until September sometime so I have time until then to get it all cleaned up and put away.

I had my gestational diabetes test done on Friday and I passed!  My doctor told me (and I had figured this out on my own, too) that because of my PCOS I was high risk for GD, so I was a bit nervous going into the test.  God has been good, as always, though, and He has kept both me and Robert safe and healthy thus far in this pregnancy.  I am nearly 26 weeks along now, and Christopher and I just cannot wait to meet our little boy.  He still moves around all the time and last night Christopher swore he felt the baby’s hand.  Robert loves to wriggle around and he does not like it when Mommy squishes him. 

Dad set a firm wedding date for September 13th, so it looks like our family will be changing drastically a lot sooner than we thought.  I am basically okay with this, though, because I know how lonely Dad is.  It’s just going to be so difficult having Dad live somewhere else and having another woman around all the time and adjusting to an entire new family.  I never thought that *our* family would end up with step siblings and nieces, etc. but here we are!

Christopher starts school again this year on August 20th which will be our third anniversary.  I’ve already told him that we are going out to a very nice dinner and we are having fun this year.  Our second anniversary was surrounded by Mom’s death and funeral and burial so it was very difficult to do any celebrating although we did enjoy a nice dinner at Outback.  This year, however, we will not dwell on all that!  (Who am I kidding?)

Our fifth home

We have moved again!  Christopher and I are in our fifth home since we got married in August of 2005.  We’ve been here for a little over a week now and we love it.  It’s so roomy and beautiful.  I’m still trying to unpack boxes, but it’s mostly just books.  We put all the boxes in the baby’s room so the rest of the apartment looks really nice and organized.  Every day I come home from work and do a little cleaning or unpacking.  Then I chill out for 20 or 30 minutes until Christopher gets home and I have to cook dinner.  It seems to be working out well.
