Making Appearances

We are safe and sound in Utah and have made somewhat of an appearance in our new life... I think. Things have been wild and surreal enough that we're still not quite sure what is happening!

Brian DID make his appearance at work, and has just about wrapped up his first week. He is still adjusting and missing old friends, but enjoying everything else I think. He's more rested than he's been in forever, and is definitely enjoying the 15 minute commute that's replaced the hour + one he had in D.C.

I've been making lots and lots of appearances at model homes throughout the valley, trying to figure out our living situation. No end in sight.

My parents have been making appearances any and every time we need help. From packing us up and loading the truck, to driving across the country, unpacking us, helping me wash our travel weary cars, and touring model homes... they haven't missed a beat. We are truly blessed to have such love and support.

And last but not least, our little one has finally decided to make his/her grand appearance.  I think he/she got as bored as we did while driving through Wyoming (WORST state EVER), needed something to do, and turned on the growth spurts.  I left Alexandria with no real bump in sight, and now... whala. So, as requested, a belly photo for your viewing...enjoyment? :)

20 weeks down. 20 more to go.  I can't believe we find out what this little munchkin will be on Friday (hopefully, anyway).  With the move and all the craziness, I have a feeling he/she will be making his appearance into our lives before we even have time to know what hit us!

I cannot believe you are 20 weeks! You are SOOOOOO TINY!!! Not just the tiny bump, you are so slim and slender and tiny.

I/we are so happy for you & Brian and this baby. It makes me tear up just thinking about it. Can't wait to hear what you are having!
