Thank goodness there’s a week of holiday from Christmas to New Year’s, because I am not ready to go back to real life yet. Since nobody else is doing anything either, I can coast along with an oversupply of chocolate and a week full of get-togethers.
We went to the park and played on Christmas morning, after opening stockings and gifts. Lane wore the tutu I made for her gift.
I had plans to take it easy for the new year. My only resolution I had in mind was to drink more water, and maybe drink less root beer.
Because that seemed simple.
But then… we found out we’re having a baby!
And suddenly my year looks so very different.
This picture is 36 hours after learning the news. I’m thinking I can just put this baby in a sling and keep on going. Doug is wondering if he’ll worry this time as much as he did last time.
We’ll be moving soon from the small apartment we have now to a slightly bigger apartment. We don’t know where it will be yet.
I’ll consider my resolution to drink more water as checked off the list: done. That was easy. And now on to new goals of planning, packing, moving, and growing this family we started.
