It has been over a year since my last post, for that I am heartily sorry... Wait a minute, that felt like confession! Actually even though it has been a VERY long time since I have posted I have nothing to apologize for! Life has been crazy and busy and I have figured out that I am not much of a journaler... Perhaps I have late onset ADD.
2011 was a crazy and busy year to say the least...
Early last year we got pregnant with the sweet baby who is now our precious Clara Grace! The day I found out I was pregnant was the beginning of Tulsa's February SNOWPOCOLYPSE!! All in all we had a total of 8 snow days! Luckily I could work from home! This is also when my morning (ALL DAY) sickness set in so I got to stay in my pj's and relax!
We spent the summer traveling back and forth between Tulsa and Dallas for family events. My sister-in-law got married in a beautiful wedding and reception. We also had baby showers hosted by each of our families. That's when it hit me how much Baby Felderhoff was going to be loved!
I also had the joy of suffering through one of the hottest summers on record while pregnant. I broke the rules and parked in our visitor parking at work for 2 months without getting caught. Of course I got caught when I was 7.5 months pregnant when I could have really used it but oh well... I got the extra exercise that I needed, too! The Fall finally brought sweet relief from the heat but that's when my excitement for this baby really went into overdrive!
In August Chad and I found out that he would be getting a job promotion and they wanted us to move to Tri-Cities, Washington. Talk about a gut wrenching decision to be so far from our family and friends with a brand new baby! We had decided that we were going to make the move when the location got changed on us! Turns out our move is actually Grand Forks, North Dakota for 8 months and then Mitchell, South Dakota for a few years! Still far from everyone but I'm sure we'll adapt!
September 29th came and went and on October 4th Clara Grace was born! Both my and Chad's parents got the call as we headed to the hospital and they were able to see me in the hospital before Clara was born. Luckily I had my epidural or I would not have been in the mood to see anyone!
From October to the end of the year we were lucky enough to have family come visit to help with Clara while we worked on coordinating the move. It was nice to get to relax over the holidays with family and have some of the extended family get the chance to meet Clara before we moved.
So.... that is everything up to now as I sit in our corporate apartment in North Dakota while its a blustery -5 degrees out side.
I've also thought I might add a few features (weekly?) to this blog...
