NEWbeginnings

Today was a bitter sweet day for me. The wonderful part was hearing my baby's heart beat so strong and excited about life in there. But it was sad that sweet Matty couldn't be with us. It's also been a rough week emotionally, I LOVE change, but it's been hard preparing for these coming months with so much of our lives up in the air. The next weeks will be amazing with the upcoming trip and having some of our questions answered about what life will be like in the coming months. I'm also struggling with leaving my job. The new designer is here (Erin) and it's so hard to slowly see my responsibilities taken from me and as she gets more and more settled it will be harder and harder to cope with giving up my design time here at Firewheel. Ultimately my heart and mind know it's going to be an amazing thing to take on the job of motherhood (with a little graphics on the side for sanity) the waiting game has just never been so hard. But enough sad crap, yeah for a happy, healthy and according to the doctor EXTREMELY active little baby, it's better than I ever dreamed it would be and every moment of the pregnancy makes the 8 years we tried worth every tear, heart ache and minutes of frustration we felt. Our next appointment is February 28th so be on the look out that day as we will be introducing our baby boy or girl to all our friends and family!

Wow...time is flying by. We were suppose to get together and scrap this week...ooops...can I chalk it up to crazy motherhood. G's been sick. Just catching up on your life on your blog...

So...it is an interesting, emotional roller coaster...the unexpected. Just know that you won't miss the day to day madness/stress of work. As much as I loved teaching, part of my passion, I won't change this for anything! Remember we have White Rock and Arbor to meet and stroll!!
