...and we are in Fairbanks, Alaska! It wasn't an easy trip, especially since I was pregnant, but I made it. DH arrived several months before me and found a house for us. He also bought my dream car for me! When I arrived he walked me out to the parking lot and presented me with an 07 Toyota Highlander! It has all the room and safety features I want.
The pregnancy and birth didn't go well (see our family blog) but our son arrived healthy so it all worked out. He is now 11 weeks old, 16lbs, and 22 inches long. We call him Little Bit. I was induced nearly a month before he was due so the house is still a mess and half of it is piled ceiling high with boxes I have yet to unpack. I hope I can get it done before LB is mobile. I have about 2 months to unpack everything and put it away, sell it, or give it away. It is my goal to sell EVERYTHING non-essential. I hold on to so much stuff and I really need to get rid of it. I refuse to be that Army wive who has moved 3 times and still has some boxes that were never unpacked from the first move. /sigh
I've done a lot already and am very proud of myself. DH is very proud of me too. He tells me daily how wonderful a wife I am. It keeps me going despite my depression and exhaustion. That and my birth control! :0P We have realized that the few days following a new dose of my monthly BC I go on a cleaning spree. It is so funny what hormones can do to you. It's like a monthly nesting instinct. We don't mind it and actually it makes me feel great! I make DH happy, my house looks more and more like a home, and I get a great boost of energy.
