...And I'm back!

Yes, it's been ages since I've blogged, but I have a very good reason: I've been in the throes of First Trimester Pregnancy Nausea. (It's a thing!) I'm now in my second trimester and starting to feel a bit better. On top of the pregnancy going on, K and I have been looking for a new home (to buy) and we think we've found it! Our offer was accepted today (YAY!!) but we still need to schedule inspections to make sure we're getting the house that we think we're getting. Our fingers are crossed!


So a lot has been going on over here, though little of it has been artistically creative. I've been creating, though, that's for sure! A little life beats inside me, and from the ultrasound images we've seen, it's a cute one! I hadn't realized just how exhausting making a baby can be. Whew! I feel tired quite often, and actually take naps. Weird. I'm NOT a napper. 


Taken the day I found out I was pregnant
I don't know if you know this or not, but I've wanted to have a baby for about 15 years. I thought that maybe I wasn't able to conceive, and had tests done, but it seemed I was fine. I just wasn't getting pregnant. I'd pretty much given up at my age. All the stress of K's father's failing health and his subsequent death threw things into perspective for me: I needed to just enjoy life with K and our friends and family, and not worry about having or not having a baby. And then about a month after K's dad passed, I started to wonder what was going on with my body and my health since I wasn't feeling like myself... and it occurred to me that I hadn't had my period in a while. We went for a walk with a friend of mine, and discovered a nice creek that we want to return to, and later, after we all had dinner, I went home and took a pregnancy test. That was the start of something new and quite unexpected.

And so a new adventure in life starts for K and I, and soon, our little baby.... I'm looking forward to sharing and learning and teaching. What an amazing thing!


Blessings to you all...
