Finally Growing Up

It's rare for me to post more than once in a six month time period, but these past few months have been pretty exciting for Brannick and I. Since I accidently put up the baby countdown ticker a little early, I guess it's time to announce that we are having a baby! I have finally entered my second trimester and am due October 10. And for all of you who were wondering, yes, I was six weeks pregnant when we were in Hawaii, and I did thorough research that it was safe to skydive in the first trimester (as safe as skydiving ever is). We don't get to find out if it's a boy or girl until June 15th, when I'm 23 weeks! I've felt fairly good so far, and am just struggling with having an expanding waistline and slower running times.

5 Weeks

8 Weeks

12 Weeks



The second exciting event for us is that Brannick has taken one of the final steps in becoming a grown up and has finally bought his very own dental practice! He is now the proud owner of the Harvard Dental Group, which is the office he's been working at for the past five years ago. So we are going to be staying in Roseburg for quite some time now, and hopefully we can soon take another major step towards adulthood and become homeowners (got to have room for the baby). We are both pretty sad to not be living closer to family, but are very excited for this great opportunity.

Signing papers, scary!!!

Congrats! Yep... sign away. It's huge, but worth it. Working for yourself is so much better than for someone else!

BIG STUFF! Well, the baby is tiny, but BIG news!! Congratulations!! I'm so exited for you. You will be a wonderful Mother. Congrats on the self-owned practice too, and good luck with all that comes with it! If it's a family dental office, you should put a treasure chest in it with dollar store toys for kids to pick out of when they leave...that is one of my favorite memories growing up from our family dentist :) One of the things I always picked was rabbit feet key rings (remember those?!)

Lots of love and POST MORE now that you've got a little bun in the oven...I want to see you preggers.
