Happy New Year! 2013 is the year you will arrive and we couldn’t be more excited!!
As I mentioned in your last letter, Kaleigh and Ben were married this week. It was a Jewish ceremony and one of the most beautiful things to experience. The weather wasn’t very cooperative and it actually started raining in the desert. Mid-ceremony we had to all run inside to the reception area and finish the ceremony. It was very intimate it special! I will certainly never forget it. While we are not Jewish your daddy and I found all of the traditions and ceremony very special.
We flew home New Year’s Eve night and grabbed a pizza. Your daddy had some wine to celebrate. He had to wake me up to watch the ball drop, but we kissed at midnight and celebrated the new year and the beginning of your birth year!
Getting back to work was not very fun after the long break, but my last day of work will be January 25th, so I only have a few weeks left!
We went out to dinner with the Valen clan at the Tampa Club and your daddy took a picture of my huge belly. This is a side by side of 6 months and then 8 months. Huge difference right?
Your movements are much more distinct and I think I am starting to make out what part of you is poking out. Sleeping is getting a little more difficult and my feet are definitely starting to swell! Wedding rings have been off for a few weeks now - not sure if I mentioned that before, but it makes me sad to look down at a Target replacement. All worth it for your baby boy!
