The other day I realized hubby and I didn’t have a decent picture together of us preggo. We’ve been in transition ever since we found out we were expecting, plus we didn’t really have the option of having the talents of our friend Angey Price (http://angeyprice.wordpress.com/) to take some nice photos of us. I looked around at some photo shops around here but all the samples I saw were those cheesy studio photo shoots with the dad making a heart shape with his hands on the mom’s belly. Another of my pet peeves, but we’ll talk about this another day. Needless to say, we didn’t go with a local photographer either.So we took advantage of our friends coming to visit us ( it was so nice to have them here for Christmas!) . With the excuse of taking them to see our favorite park, we asked them to take a few pictures of us. So this is us at 31 weeks. :)So glad we got to register such an exciting time for us as a couple. We are both so anxious for our baby boy to be here and to see his little chubby face ( yep, the dcotor tells us he is a big one). And we know that by the time he gets here, we’ll have a special name for him.

>Every family has at least one Christmas tradition. No matter what they are, there’s just something comforting in knowing you will eat the same foods, do the same things, see the same people, year after year.

I wish I had this poster to hang on my living room wall.
So every time I try to put the verb in the middle of the sentence, I’d be reminded to let go of this concept.:)
And to remind me of what it takes to learn new things.

>28 weeks and entering my third trimester. Time went by way too fast. Part of me (the part that doesn’t have his nursery ready or a name picked out) wants him to stay put a little bit longer. But the other part of me (the one that feels so heavy and achey all the time) is kinda ready to be done!New hat. All the girls here wear cute little hats ( it is waaaaaaaaaay too cold) so I figured I’d fit in and got me one. It’s hard to feel cute these days and the hat helps.:)

Little did she know that life was never going to be the same again. In only ten days, her life from a monotonous monoculture to a world-whirlwind undertaking.
He was just a guy, standing in front of a girl, asking her to love him. She in turn, realized he completed her. “I’m in love! I’m in love! And I don’t care who knows it!” she shouted from the roof tops.
Grueling months of distance, many times leaving on a jet plane. He asked her marry him and she promised to wear his ring.
A paradisiacal beach, the perfect “I do”. Well, yeah, history is gonna change.
A move to another land. He took her hand and guided her through it. It was just the beginning of their life-long adventures together.
Fast forward a four years later, a baby boy is on the way. And another move to yet another land. They say “whoa, this is heavy!”. But they wouldn’t do it any other way.
Happy 4th anniversary hubby! You know you are my favorite. The past four years have been the best ever. No kidding.

Disclaimer #2 – overly cheesy post, but I’m so happy, I don’t care who knows it! Ha!
