We’ve been away, it’s a girl, and other secrets I’ve been keeping

At 3am this morning, we rolled into Columbus after having been away for two full months.

5 hours later, I had an ultrasound that confirmed we are having a baby girl! Everything looks healthy and lovely.

We were returning from a whirlwind roadtrip tour of Utah, California, and Wyoming and had a(n almost entirely) fabulous time visiting family and friends. Now that we are home safe and sound, I just might blog about it.

Here are a few pics in the meantime:

Oh, and I got my ears pierced on my birthday and I love ’em!

A few things I’ve missed in Columbus:

  • Four friends giving birth.
  • Earth Day = free best-veggie-burger-on-earth at Northstar Cafe
  • Getting my garden started on time.
  • Seeing girlfriends at the first annual Riverside women’s reunion weekend. A dozen good friends who’ve moved away came back to Columbus for it.
  • Collecting mail. I just waded through a knee-high pile of paper.
  • Spring. It’s in the high 80s now and I just came from 40s in Jackson Hole.
  • My kitchen. It’s been tricky cooking on the road without my usual staples.
  • The first farmers’ markets of the season! We’ll be in Worthington this Saturday for sure.

      Ack, Maya. Just realized I never told you why we kept our distance in CA: I ended up with a sister-in-law, two nieces, and a brother all get sick over a week’s time so I didn’t want to risk infecting you guys!

      Apparently when we carry the plague, we carry it well. 😦

    Congrats on another girl! There is nothing like two sisters. They will always have a best friend. Aren’t you so glad you don’t have to buy new clothes and toys for her? That is great!
