Yes, I realize that my poor little blog has been neglected for three months and is in need of a much overdue update (I have pretty good reasons, though…just keep reading)!
I’ll save most of the smaller updates for later posts, but get the big news out there!
I guess I will start with the big news first…John and I are expecting!!! We shared the good news with immediate family right away when we found out in July and just broke the news to extended family and friends and pretty much the entire Facebook world with this cute little video. We are due March 15, 2012 and get to find out if we’re having a boy or girl in just three weeks – on October 7. We’re having a gender reveal party the following Saturday, so you will have to come back after that to find out if Baby Julius will be sporting pink or blue!
Another huge answer to prayer happened right around the same time we found out we were expecting – I got a full-time job offer (and accepted, of course)! I’m working at a private Christian university as an Administrative Assistant and most of my time has been spent planning and coordinating a retreat for the faculty of the department I work in. It’s a definite change in environment from my previous position, but I have really enjoyed getting to know everyone that I work with and throughout the University.
We’ve also done some work on the house, including new furniture, converting my office to a guest room (and soon to a nursery) and some landscaping, as well as marking a few more items off on my 101 list and just plain relaxing (growing a baby is a lot of work!).
Stay tuned for more on these other updates as well as Baby Julius’ progress over the next 6 months (and beyond)!
