Updates and Exciting Times!

Hello Hello!

It’s been at least a month since I last updated my blog (it feels good to write again!).  SO much has happened!  Your Dad and I moved from Idaho to Ohio.  The drive took 4 days total and really wasn’t as bad as I thought it was going to be.  We had a week to get the house unpacked and organized and I started my new job at Battelle on August 8th.  So far it’s absolutely amazing.  I’ve already started helping on several projects and really enjoy my days at work.  I joined the gym at work and try to get up in the morning to workout and shower before my day starts.  Some days I don’t make it in the morning and I just go on  my lunch break.  It’s really nice.  Your Dad is working from home and as far as I can tell he likes it- it definitely took some getting used to, but he seems to be enjoying it.  He starts taking classes in a month to get his computer science degree.  I am so proud of him for making the decision to take classes- it’s going to be fun to watch him as he learns all these new and exciting things!

Here’s some picks of our new place (but it’s still a work in progress):

Mid-August we flew to California for a wedding.  Mike Baron (a friend from mine from New Zealand) got married in Sonoma Valley.  It was a beautiful ceremony and we had a great time exploring the area, we went to Napa for an afternoon and stopped in a couple wineries.  We even made it to the Golden Gate Bridge!  The weekend went by so fast- but it was definitely worth the trip.

I found out the week before we flew to California that I was pregnant for the third time.  Do you believe it?  I sure didn’t.  It happened so fast this time and boy-o-boy has it been rough.  I feel very sick most of my days, but I am taking this as a good sign and staying positive that this pregnancy will stick- I’m not so sure I can handle a third miscarriage.  I found out on my lunch break at work on a random Monday so I stopped at a bundt cake bakery on the way home and got Aaron a little surprise to tell him the good news.

The “3” candle is actually a sparkler and I got it because third time’s a charm right?!?  We lit the sparkler and prayed like mad that this time around will be a happy experience.  As of today I am  6 weeks and 6 days.  And the pregnancy symptoms are going strong!  We told Grandma and Grandpa Johnson over a video chat last week and we plan on telling my side of the family this weekend after your Aunt Lauryn’s baby shower is over.  As for me, I feel nervous and excited all at the same time.  I’m just trying my best to take it easy and relax as much as possible.  Please please please let this be a healthy pregnancy.  I need it to be.

I think that’s it for my updates.  Now that we are settled I should be able to update more on our life and new exciting pregnancy.  I’m looking forward to next weekend when I drive home for my sister’s baby shower.  I’m pretty sure that Grandma Donisi went overboard for the party (just like always) so I will take lots of pics and write a post on the fun day!  I’ll also update you on how it goes telling my family about the little bean growing in my tummy.  It’s going to be a great weekend!
