Week 51

This week we celebrated my birthday.... and by celebrated I mean that we got Japanese food and went to bed early. I was incredibly sick with nausea and you weren't feeling well either. This birthday didn't include a huge party like I usually have. This one was low-key with just you and me. Even though we didn't feel well, it was still nice to spend the day with you.

Later in the week we found out some crazy news. We are having TWINS
The funny thing is that we had been referring to them as "babies" off-and-on over the last few weeks. We both just had a feeling. We've also had this ongoing joke between us (before we even got married) that if we ever had kids we would probably end up having twins. We joked and joked about it.... and it happened. When the ultrasound tech told us we were having twins we both started laughing.

We're both overjoyed and still in shock. I keep saying that we're psychic and need to play the lottery. We laugh about it but seriously, we're having twins and we really need to win the lottery.

Thing to remember for this week: Twins will be twice the fun!

Week 50

It was a normal work week this week. I hated going back after the break. If I could work completely from home that would be amazing.

I've been dealing with nausea and you've been incredibly sweet to me. It's an odd thing, growing a human.

I still can't believe that in a few months we'll have a baby. We've been awesome cat parents but the thought of having a Little Smith around is still crazy.

I know you'll be an amazing father. I'm so excited to see you with our kid. I'm sure seeing you with them will just make me fall even deeper in love with you--- which is hard to imagine since I love you so much already.

Thing to remember from this week: This will be our greatest adventure.

Week Forty-Nine

We wrapped up 2014 by spending New Year's Eve at Kiira and Jason's. It was a different kind of party this time. Since Kiira and I are both pregnant, we took advantage of the fresh fruit & chocolate fondue instead of the beer you and Jason enjoyed. It was a nice, relaxed night. 

The next day we went to Kathy & Tommy's for paintball, food, and fireworks. It was wonderful, as always.

2014 was an incredible year. 

We got married in January and found out we were pregnant in December. You cannot begin and end a year more awesomely than that.

Between those two very high points were some great things too. I started my position with AmeriCorps. You started your current job. We adopted two beautiful cat children: Alistair and Lucius Crowley. I also feel like we've learned a lot and grown as a couple. 

I think that there is a real sense of relief knowing that we're going into this whole parenting thing as an equal partnership. I think we're great together as spouses and we'll be great together as parents.

2015 is sure to be one with a lot of changes. I'm so excited for every good thing that's headed our way!

Thing to remember: 2014 was amazing. Let's make 2015 even better!
