Hello all and Happy Holiday Season! Have a good look at this pic…. I have a story to tell.
On Mothers Day of 2006, Hannah and I had our first date at Enchanted Rock. We went out for an afternoon of rock climbing and got stuck in a big ol’ Texas rainstorm. We were forced to play in the rain and then make out on a picnic table. Not a bad afternoon. Her family joined later with wine, cheese, and smoked salmon for a Mothers Day picnic. We finished off the day sitting on the Rock and watching the sunset. Not only was this an amazing day, but it was the most important day of my adult life for so many reasons. It led to our life together, to meeting a wonderful new family in the Floyds and extended, and has now led to us making more of… well, us!
In 2006 there were two people on that picnic table. In 2012… there were FOUR! Yes!
We just came back from a doctor visit and we can now proudly and publicly say that we are having Thing 2! 7.5 centimeters long and kicking away, our little Nemo is coming along swell. Hannah is doing well, besides feeling like barfing 24 hours a day, and I am stuck between total excitement and “OH SHIT, what were we thinking?” Lottie is also excited, she just doesn’t know why yet. Lottie has about five teeth now and several others moving. She is officially a crawler, says “mama” a lot (which we are working on associating with Hannah), and has learned to clap!!
Have a great holiday and new year. We will keep you all posted! Thanks to family and friends who have inspired us in this endeavor as well as helped in so many ways.
