I've said it before, our life is no picnic, we work hard at our jobs and we come home to work hard some more. We have to work through disagreements and sometimes have our days where we just don't get along. But things are always worked out. We're two peas in a pod- two very stubborn peas. The kind that keep coming back in your garden year after year despite how sure you are that you got them all out at harvest time. Yeah, we're those peas.
Kyle and I have always shared our goals and our dreams with eachother- so even early on in our relationship we talked about our feelings about money, relationships, marriage, and even children. We are lucky that we share the same views on all these things, it has made our relationship much smoother. (As I said before: two peas.) Instead of arguing about what to do with our money we get to focus on more important things, like how old Meryl Streep is or how long it takes to drive from our house to New York City. You know, stuff like that.
After giving it lots of thought, we decided to take action on one of the previously mentioned topics of discussion. We're having a baby. This was one of the main culprits for our lack of anniversary-celebration this year, I admit, we had all these fun activities for the day planned but as my "morning sickness" lasted throughout the day it made it difficult to want to eat out or take the kayaks for a swim.
SO! Now that the cat is officially out of the bag I'm hoping to get back into my regularly scheduled blog posting as I've got tons to update you all on regarding the house and nursery. Talk about renovation nation going on at casa Senesac- we're pushing to get the entire second floor finished by the end of the year! Plus the dining room! OH and getting our chimeny/woodstove installed next month! Plenty of goings-on and I hope you'll stay tuned for all the long-overdue updates!
So folks, thats the big news that I've been holding on to. My estimated due date is January 26 (which puts me at almost 5 months right now). You can see in the picture below I've started "showing" as it is so lovingly called- note the elastic waistband pants and my prepregnancy t-shirt that just isn't long enough anymore.
