Well, almost an entire year has gone by without any posts. While I wanted to blog my pregnancy… it’s too late now! Baby has been born… and is already almost four months!
Jerad and I welcomed Finn Seven Ruth on Thursday, November 7th, 2013. He was 6 lbs, 10.8 oz and 20 1/4 inches long. He has changed our lives in so many ways, it’s hard to even describe. Taking care of him is the most rewarding and challenging job I’ve ever had, but I love it. I think the hardest thing lately has been trying to balance spending time with him, work, household chores and more. The longer I’ve been back at work, the more I want to be a stay at home mom. Unfortunately it’s just not in the cards for our family at the moment. Jerad is working hard to hopefully eventually make it a possibility.
We also recently welcomed our new nephew into the family. My sister-in-law, Haily and her husband Mitch, just had a baby boy on February 17. His name is Luke Cohen and he is super adorable. We got to meet him last Saturday… It was amazing to see the difference in how big and mature Finn has gotten in such a short amount of time. Mr. Finn looks gigantic next to Luke!
Jerad and I are getting excited for our trip to Florida coming up. It will be Finn’s first time in an airplane. I keep researching as much as I can so that we have the smoothest trip possible, but I’m sure there will be some speed bumps. Hopefully we survive! 🙂 We will be there for a full week, which will be awesome, but I’m already dreading having to leave Una in Iowa. She loves going to doggie camp, but I just miss her so much when we’re apart. She will always be my first born!
