My last update was October 7 and a lot has happened since then.
At the time of that last update I was newly pregnant, but didn’t know it! We found out a few weeks later, literally the night before moving into our new house. The pregnancy was a complete and total surprise and shock since, you know… it took 3 years, 3 IVFs and $50K+ to get our last baby! We had actually already scheduled another IVF attempt to try for baby #2. But sometimes these things happen. It was a little overwhelming at first, and we had a lot of processing to do, but we are happily expecting a baby girl at the end of June. If you’d like to read more about my thoughts on the pregnancy, you can read my announcement over on my infertility blog.
We also moved into a new house at the end of October (the night after we discovered we were pregnant). We sold our previous home in June and lived with Tom’s parents for a few months while this house was being built. It took us awhile to settle in (since I was experiencing some mild nausea my first trimester) and we still don’t have much on the walls, but we’re grateful for our new home.
Despite breaking her arm last week (she fell off a bed), Cora is doing well. She goes to preschool two mornings and week and loves it. She is talking a lot more and recently started trying to sing. She loves Pete the Cat, pretending to ice skate, and eating raw broccoli! I still try to limit the amount of photos we share of her online, so I won’t be posting any today.
I’ve also quietly launched a new ebook on Amazon’s Kindle store. It’s my second book (here’s the first one) and I’ve enjoyed the process of writing it and formatting it for Amazon. I’ll be launching it on my blog soon. (The links you see here are Amazon affiliate links).
I’m hoping to post more often here. Fingers crossed!
