one big update

So... Its been a few months.  This gap was not for a lack of things to write about or a lack of life changes.  I could blame it on lack of time or simply being overwhelmed, but thats sorta lame.

We bought a new house in October and spent 3 months renovating it, finding renters for our 1st home and moving.  We are getting all settled into our new digs and couldn't be happier.  It was a fun and exhausting process but a labor of love. Our new house truly feels like a home and we can't wait to make many memories here.

Right around the time that we started the renovations we also found out that we were expecting another baby!  It was a long and frustrating but hopeful road to get to this point and we feel so very fortunate.  The journey started with getting a TAC in March of 2012 and had many twists in turns since then, all in an effort to prepare for as healthy of a pregnancy as possible.

There are no guarantees in life, especially in pregnancy and child rearing.  We knew that, but we also knowingly went into this with open hearts.  The idea of pregnancy after a micro preemie can certainly be a scary one, but something we never accepted as scary.  I wish I could say that I truly trust my body (I don't) but I do trust that we have done everything we can to make this pregnancy a long and healthy one.  There have been many doctors and many opinions that we have carefully sorted through, but now we simply wait and let the weeks pass by.

prayers, good thoughts, juju, karma ...  whatever you throw around, we will take.  We are so thankful for our tribe of family and friends who have been nothing but supportive.  We are hopeful that this wild ride plays out as long and boring for the next 20+ weeks.
