I’ve been trying to write at least one post per month on my blog (ideally, I’d post more than that!), and I am overdue for a post. This last week I hit 20 weeks. I am now over halfway through my pregnancy, and we found out the gender! Before we found out the gender, I had no inkling as to what the gender was. I was 51% sure it was a girl; John was 51% sure it was a boy. John was right 😉
I have learned people love talking about babies. For example, when I was getting my hair done the other day, my stylist asked if I had any children. I let her know that I was pregnant with our first. For the rest of the hair appointment, which was like an hour, she talked about how much she loves her grandson and how cute he is. It was fun to hear her gush about her grand baby. I have also learned that I have no idea what sort of a ride John and I are in for. As people have shared their parenting experiences with me, I’ve realized it’s going to be an adventure!
For now, we’re just enjoying a slower pace of life. John has been traveling less for work, and being more settled in our new house has been nice. Homeownership continues to provide new experiences. We’ve learned that grass grows really fast when it rains and that birds like to fly into vents that aren’t covered. Thankfully our home builder was super helpful resolving the bird situation.
Yesterday, we went and saw John’s favorite band – Vertical Horizon. It was fun for me to see how excited he was to hear them live in concert.
I’m very glad it’s summer time! I am excited to explore West Virginia more this summer. Last weekend, we went on an evening walk in Harper’s Ferry, which is only about 10 minutes from our house. The scenery was majestic.
