Hello again!

It’s been a long time since I posted anything. A long time since I’ve been active online. I’ve been a bit preoccupied, but I feel like today is a good day to officially let everyone in on our family’s news…

A special thank you to our friends and family who helped us keep our little secret!  As soon as I found out I was pregnant I felt such a strong need for privacy. I’m already an introvert and for some reason this pregnancy amplified my need for space and solitude. We kept Ace a secret until I was halfway through pregnancy and planned to do at least the same with this one. Then, 20 weeks came and went and I still wasn’t really showing and didn’t feel ready to share. The holidays came roaring in and Dave’s busiest season of work hit and finding the time to post an announcement was the last thing on my mind!

But here we are. Thrilled and still a bit in disbelief! 2017 is going to be a busy, but exciting year for us. And I hope to post online a little more often. Trying to find a balance that feels just right. :)

All I could think was “How in the world can you forget your age?” Turns out having a kid is how. (And frankly, once you can’t count your age on your fingers or count down how many years until driving, legal drinking, etc, there’s just not a lot of incentive to keep track.)
