It's Been Way Too Long!!

Wow, time has really gotten away from me. I can't believe it's been almost 5 months since my last post. So sorry about that. Anyway, lots of things have happened in these past 5 months. For starters I found out in November that we're expecting another bundle of joy due July 10th. We weren't finding out the sex of the baby but the nurse accidentally told us when she was giving me the results of my amnio that I had and the result of our efforts is we're having a BOY!! I have to admit that I was a little disappointed because we wanted it to be a surprise like with Mia but part of me is liking that I know what we're having. Now I know for sure I have to get new stuff. When I told Dave what we were having he thought for sure it was a girl since the myth is that fighter pilots only have girls and my answer to that was that he must not be doing his job since it's a boy....LOL! He thought that was funny but he's way excited to have a little buddy to throw a ball and roughhouse with. So far things have been going well with my pregnancy with the exception of some morning sickness in the first trimester. Now I'm just starting to look like a stuffed Thanksgiving turkey.

Speaking of Thanksgiving, we were fortunate enough to spend the holiday with Dave's side of the family in Minneapolis. What a great time we had. With me being from the east coast it was nice to be in cold weather for Thanksgiving. For some reason it just makes it feel more like the holidays. Anyway, it was great to see all of Dave's aunts, uncles, cousins and grandmother. We don't get to see them very often so anytime we get the opportunity we go for it.

After Thanksgiving things were quiet for a while. Dave had a work trip up to Utah the first week of December and then the week before Christmas we went to Tahoe with his parents and brother. Our condo was in the perfect location, right across the street from the Heavenly gondola. The little village that surrounded it was amazing. Everything was lit up for Christmas and just very festive. Even though I am prego I couldn't pass up the chance to ski in Tahoe. So for one day Dave and I hit the slopes, on the bunny hills mind you. It wasn't Dave's first choice but being that I'm not an expert skier we decided to be cautious and take the easier slopes. We had a great time. After our week in Tahoe the following week was Christmas, that was spent at my parents' house in PA. My mom's side of the family was in town as well and it's always lots of fun when we're all together. December was a busy month for us but we enjoyed every minute of it.

Now things have quieted down and we're just waiting for the arrival of our little one. I hope this gives everyone a little update as to what's been going on with us. I'm really going to try and be better about keeping this blog updated. I'll post some photos soon. Until next time.
