Big news all around, over here. Jon and I are expecting a baby boy, set for arrival on Christmas dang day! I know the chances of going into labor on your due date is somewhat slim (and actually I'm hoping we can be home, babe in tow by Christmas) but because you sorta anticipate Christmas anyway, it's really given me a good gague of our timeline...which has been flying by. Already halfway there!
Then, on August 5th (also my mom's birthday!) we grabbed some donuts and Jon put on a record while we were gettin ready to head out for our 20 week ultrasound (Ricky; Ricky Nelson—you know, Honeycomb, Be-Bop Baby, Have I Told You Lately That I Love You...). We were dancing around, eager to see our babe kick around on the screen (and to find out what we were having of course) when I walked into my office at the end of the hall to find an old Wheel of Fortune game board propped on my desk asking "Will You Marry Me?"... I turned to find Jon on his knee with a stunner of a ring, saying some words I'm not even sure of now, I was so shocked. I didn't even think I cared for diamonds much, but this ring is somethin else. It was his Grandma Ruth's that he had restored and cleaned and it's just perfect. A little insight on the Wheel of Fortune relevance: ever since I've been pregnant, I'm an avid Wheel watcher; it entertains the hell out of me. I think we both think that's pretty hilarious, so it was pretty adorable he was able to incorporate my love of the wheel in the whole deal.
All-in-all, we're just elated to start this next chapter. To top it off, we signed a lease on a new, bigger apartment thats just a block away from our place now. An added bedroom, which I'll be using as my office and another little room close by we're planning on making the nursery. We move in beginning of September, and I can't stop obsessing over interiors, which you may have noticed on Pinterest. I also made a baby board to keep track of all things cute.
And an aside: I realize I haven't shared much of my personal life here in the past, but after a long period of feeling bored of blogging in general, I've been a bit more into it lately and because I'm expecting to be somewhat consumed with motherhood, I decided it'd be ok to share what I damn well please from here on out! In addition, I'm hoping to share several projects I've recently wrapped and maybe sometime in the near future (no promises), my new website that I've been working on all summer—complete with a lil shop! Anyhow, thanks in advance for following along, and any advice is welcome!
