And for a bonus, my Dad has been scanning his old slides of our family and happened to send over a few of me when I was K's age because he figured we would all get a kick out of them. I haven't had the chance to show K yet because she's asleep but I think she will find it wild to see Mommy at her age. Plus it's kind of fun to see some similarities between us. I still think she is a good mix of A and I but there are definitely some of my genes in that little girl. So here are three of me from 1979 (I'm giving away my age - yikes! Lol ;) )
|I have a picture of K sitting on our stairs surrounded by all of her Build-A-Bears. I wonder where she gets that from? ;)|
|My brother was in this picture too looking super cute but I wasn't sure if he'd want that out there for everyone to see.|
|This picture was a beast to clean up. Those black dots were EVERYWHERE on my face and arms. Yay Photoshop!|
Anyway, news on the baby front is still just "hurry up and wait" at this point. Most of you have heard that poor A is going to need back surgery. It was a rough day today hearing that news. As I was telling him, I felt so let down when I heard. I had been doing all I could to stay positive this whole time and trying not to worry and hoping that just Physical Therapy would take care of it so when I heard that the recommendation was surgery it was like all of the wind left my sails. Thankfully we had made dinner plans with some great friends of ours tonight and having them and their kids here really helped to take our minds off of it for a bit and just relax and enjoy some company. At this point all we can do is take it one day at a time so hopefully we can both remind each other of that because I know I'm going to need it and I'm guessing A will too. Thank God we have each other and such a great support system of family and friends. We are so truly blessed!
