Two years ago I had just walked down the aisle to meet my groom. Two years ago I was hearing about honeybees working hard and mating for life. Two years ago I married the love of my life and haven't looked back!
So where are we two years later? Three states away where it's still snowing in March, living in our own home, preparing to welcome our first baby into our lives. Wow can two years change things! I can honestly say that our second year of marriage was a lot smoother than our first year. There have been some bumps along the way, but hopefully life continues this upward slope!
On Monday Travis starts working in the office full time and will no longer be working late nights doing the janitor work. Hooray! I'm sure he's not looking forward to the early morning wake-ups, but I'm looking forward to having him home in the evenings and actually eating dinner together. Hooray for normalcy!
This week I have an appointment to interview a home daycare woman for when little Emily makes her appearance. This has been such a headache of an experience. Living in a small town sure has it's drawbacks at times. We only have two daycare centers, which are more expensive than in-home care, of course. I'd prefer to use in-home care anyway, so I asked around for recommendations and such. That yielded little fruit, so I turned to our local social services website and printed off all the names of licensed in-home daycare workers in our town. I called every single one, and only found one opening. One! I got on a couple wait lists, so we'll see what happens. Hopefully this woman is wonderful and I feel comfortable with her so we can just move foward with her. Fingers crossed, wish me good luck!
Here's a progress picture for you. Can you believe I'm already at 20 weeks? We're halfway there! If time flies for the next 20 weeks like it did the last 20, we'll have a baby here in no time!
