Where to begin? Sweet G turned 3 on December 23rd. She is awesome and a ball of energy. I also changed jobs last year which has kept me very busy. H and I have had our ups and downs through the year, but have come out of it for the better. It was touch and go for a while there and I just kind of buried my head and powered through whatever came my way.
Recently, G has been asking for a baby. One of her classmate's now has a new sibling and G desperately wants one. I don't think she quite knows what it is she is asking for! She even told one of her teachers that I'm having a baby girl. That was a little embarrassing to explain that indeed I am not with child.
You know who is with child? My brother and his wife! I am so incredibly excited for them. It is still early days - I think she's probably around 8 weeks along. They had been trying for about a year and a half and had a miscarriage around October. So, I have been sending out all of the good thoughts that I had for them to have a healthy pregnancy.
All of the baby talk got H and me thinking and talking. After we heard about my brother, I said to H that it made me think about wanting another child. He agreed. Then we just left things as is, but it was marinating in both of our minds. Yesterday we talked again about our future and what we want. You know - the typical New Year conversation, making sure that we are working towards the same things.
It looks like we are likely renting a cottage this year for our vacation rather than going somewhere foreign & exotic.
It also looks like I am going to be assessing our finances and figuring out if we should go to Brno in the fall to give one last try at rounding out our family. We have those 3 frozen embryos just sitting there and we both feel like our family is not quite complete.
So, it looks like there could be a trip to Brno in the fall for me if all falls into place.
I love my daughter. She's a really bright, kind, funny, amazing and beautiful little girl. If she is the only child I am ever able to have then I am perfectly OK with that.
