THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for all the love that poured in after our announcement last week! We are over the moon excited. Our babes will be about 2 years apart and we’re probably a little bit crazy doing this with our big move coming up soon. But then again, I don’t know pregnancy without a little life excitement.
The first trimester is over now and I kissed it good riddance. I had the kind of pregnancy (with Owen) that made most women want to punch me in the face. After the first few months of this pregnancy, I too, want to punch that me in the face. This one has been completely different. So that kind of explains my absence on the blog lately.
& in other news…
Alex was TDY, home for 8.5 days and gone again. As you can imagine the week he was home went really really fast.
The same day that we said goodbye (again) to Alex, my mom arrived. It was a bittersweet day.
I’ve been low on energy and only starting to feel better so she’s been a savior helping me with Owen and get ready for our upcoming trip to the states.
Last week we found out a friend from my hometown was staying in Kaiserslautern for a few days. We met here for lunch and a trip to the zoo. Owen loved the animals and I devoured my spaghetti.
It was so great getting to see Erin after several years and catching up with her!
Just the other day, we had to say “see you later” to our good friends and their sweet girls. We’ve been with them since our Texas days and sat next to them on the plane that moved us to Germany. Helen and I were pregnant together during the deployment and we’ve had countless lunches, coffee dates, and playdates. Owen has recently grown quite fond of their oldest daughter Caroline.
Our friend Kassie and I drove to Ramstein (the other AF base in Germany) to have one more (kid-free!!) lunch with her before they boarded the plane. Kassie, Helen, and I all met when we were in Texas. Our husbands went through the F-16 B-course there together and we became good friends. Kassie and her husband caught up with us in Germany a little over a year ago. I simply cannot imagine what life will be without these two, but I know our crazy small AF world will reunite us again someday. I’m so thankful for the lifelong friends we’ve made along this journey.
