nine years later ...

And I'm not talking about the length between my blog posts now-a-days, although the same could be said. :) So the last time I wrote I was celebrating the fact that Dan and I have been "together" for nine years. And what an awesome nine years it has been. We graduated from college and grad school, we traveled to Mexico six times (and yet my Spanish vocabulary still only consists of about three words, two of which are vino and cerveza), Hawaii, Turks & Caicos, Honduras, Vegas, Chicago too many times to count, Colorado just as many times as Chicago; we've been snow skiing, water skiing, skydiving and scuba diving. We got engaged and even followed through with getting married. ;) We bought a house, we renovated a house, oh and we got the dog of our dreams.

And now ... nine years later ...
It's finally time!  

We are so happy to announce that we are expecting our first baby (second "kid"- can't forget the Sherm dog) in early November! Or October. Whenever the babe decides to show up. Due date is November 4th, so my guess is Halloween. I can't sleep at night because I'm so gosh darn excited. Or maybe that's because they make you sleep on your left side and I am a right side sleeper. Oh the horror! But honestly, we could not be happier and I am just over the moon about being pregnant. I'm also over the moon about getting to eat for two. Whoever said you only need 300 additional calories a day was clearly never pregnant. ;)

  13. Congratulations, Sherman, on getting every dog's dream playmate!! Sloan is so jealous of you getting your very own small human, and Max is jealous of the incredible smells that are going to invade your house soon! (My friend has brought her brand new baby over a few times, and apparently newborns smell AMAZING to Max. He keeps trying to face-rub the poor baby!!)

  20. Congratulations! Wow Sherman is going to be getting a little brother or sister. How exciting! One of the best things about being pregnant seems to be having the excuse of eating way more than usual and not being judged for it. Haha. Can't wait to see more updates.
