As the new year arrived, I found myself reflecting over the last year, the good, the bad and the in between. I made a few new year resolutions, some the same I made last year and the year before, you know the ones you never manage to follow through with. This will be our 4th January we’ve said “this will be the year of our miracle baby”. I’ve tried so hard to follow through with this one, but once again, I failed.I finally fulfilled my 4 year running New Year's resolution!!! It may have taken me awhile, but I persevered. I'm feeling very blessed in 2010 and look forward to what this year will bring forth.
Speaking of being blessed, I ran into the following post on Kerry's blog:
The gift of life!I know I may be partial, but in my eyes, I am blessed with the best hubby ever!
Well, I hope you all had a great Christmas. I thought it very fitting to take this opportunity on Christmas night to tell you about the best gift that I received this year. It was to wake up on Christmas morning and see my beautiful wife 14 weeks and 2 days pregnant. After 4 years of a fertility journey that I wouldn’t wish on anyone, we found out on October 19th that she was finally pregnant. Week after week we’ve had ultrasounds and confirmations that everything is going great. So we thank God this Christmas for the little answer to prayer that is growing in her womb. I encourage you to never give up on the things that you are believing for. We should find out on January 5th if it’s a boy or girl. The suspicions from previous ultrasound clues are leaning towards a boy. As you might imagine, we will be thrilled with either. I’ll keep you posted. Have a great weekend and be safe this Holiday season.
You may remember from my last post that Kerry bought me some "boy short" maternity underwear because he was concerned that my current undies were getting too tight on baby. Here's the maternity undies after washing and drying them. They now look like "toddler short" underwear. I held them up to Kerry and said, you think these will be less restrictive?? He looked at me puzzled and said, are those the ones I bought you???
I received a surprise gift in the mail. It was a mom-to-be Christmas ornament. I love that the pg angel is holding a bucket of ice cream and a jar of pickles! Thank you Jean, Betty, Sheree, Rachel and Lyndsay!!!
For New Year's Eve we went to dinner with a few friends.
