Our big news!

Christian and I issued the “official” announcement this week: we’re having a baby! Every time I say it, I almost can’t believe it.

Some updates, then:
– We have our first ultrasound next Friday. Emily will be in town from CO, and Alicia and Josie will come, too. We can’t wait to see the baby!
– I finally have a bump. Crazy that I’m halfway through the pregnancy, and I’m only now really showing. At least I think so…my boss told me 3 weeks ago that she knew I was pregnant (I innocently asked if it was because I’m eating all the time). So maybe there’s been a pudge for a bit…
– I can feel the baby move. Christian can’t feel it yet from the outside, but we’re both looking forward to that.

We asked Alicia to take our picture for the announcement. Josie really wanted to be in it. Midway through, she said that she thinks there are “two babies in there…one boy and one girl”. It was hilarious.

Also: wear an apron when you garden. I know I look like I’m slinging burgers, but I can carry around my tools and gloves, stash my phone and wipe my hands off. I love it.

That is my favorite shade of pink/purple.

Our ever-evolving homestead

The garden has exploded! We have so so much lettuce. I’m not complaining, but if you want any, come on over and take a few bags home. It’s great to go out and pick our dinner salad at the end of the day. And in the morning, we pick strawberries. We also have kale that’s … Continue reading
