Is what I am. No entry since October 2009. Well, now that it is almost August 2012 guess I should update. The past few years have been pretty crazy and flown by.
Almost 4. Amazing how fast time has gone by. She is very smart and excels at school. She is a social butterfly... almost to a fault. She will talk to anyone at anytime which makes ME uneasy. I probably have an unhealthy fear of someone snatching her... because she is just so darn cute too. Top pic is her and daddy playing corn hole at a festival. Then a pic from July 4th weekend at our country club.
Is going great. No real changes....... well, I hired (In May 2010) a Finance Manager full time and I work Tues-Thurs. I get to stay home on Mondays and Fridays! I love the new addition to the S&W family and my schedule.
SPEAKING OF WORK, Clint & I have decided after much thought and consideration for what is best for our family that we are moving to MONROE! I know where is that? About 30 minutes south of Athens. :) It is next to Loganville where most of my family lives. Seems we are in Loganville EVERY weekend and it will get me so much closer to work. I have been commuting 40+ miles one way through downtown for 8+ years! I am tired of it. Clint is still in the mortgage industry and can work from home so we're looking at houses in Providence Club so we can live on the golf course and I will be about 35 minutes on back roads from the office! AMAZING! Our house is going on the market in about a week. I am a good combo of nervous and excited. If it sells quickly we could be homeless.... and possible living in an apartment. If it does not sell quickly then we are like the rest of America at the hands of this wonderful housing market. Prayers please to get this baby sold!
Clint and I celebrated our 6th anniversary on May 28, 2012. We spent 5 days in the Dominican Republic at the Hard Rock. We had an amazing trip. We needed the trip...... most of you do not know that we decided to begin the process of "trying" for another baby. We decided we'd try for 1 year. Callie was almost 3 and Clint was 41 so a year was about all the time we wanted to spend on this adventure! Our timeline was May 28 2011 through May 28 2012. I never in a million years thought I would not have gotten pregnant in a years time. I was entering my 13th cycle. Leaving for our trip on May 24 2012 I was still not pregnant. So, this trip was good for my soul to let it all go. Clint and I both had been through the "slew" of fertility tests and I was diagnosed with very mild PCOS. I began medicine at 500-1000 mg of Metformin per day. Dr. Anderson was not convinced that I truly had PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome - meaning my body did not process insulin correctly and that made my uterus hostile! hee hee) Clint was perfect. (Insert eye roll and gag noise from me and chest pounding from him). I scheduled an appointment on June 4th after a month on the meds to have blood drawn and talk to my dr about the side effects. This medicine can be very rough on your stomach and have a lot of side effects. Besides the rough stomach, loss of appetite and the fact that you cannot drink on this medicine - made me so sick, I had lost 10 lbs in 4 weeks. :) Happy Dance.
I arrive on June 4th for my appt. My Dr. came in and we started chatting. She asked me if I thought I could be pregnant. I said, no, I do not think so. I took the month off from OPK's, fertility monitors and tracking my temp. So I highly doubt it! She said I will give you pregnancy test just in case. The assistant brought it in and set it on the counter behind the Dr. We kept talking etc. After about 5 minutes she rolled over and I could see the test. I said "Not positive, what is new in my world" She looked herself and turned to me and said "Are you not seeing that??" YOU ARE PREGNANT! I snatched the test from her and said "you swapped the urine, there is NO WAY I AM PREGNANT!" Well, it was accurate. I took the test with me in a urine sample jar to Clint's office. We were going to go to lunch anyway so I walked in and shut his office door. The the following conversation took place:
C: How was the dr
C: everything ok?
A: yes. She told me something interesting today.
C: What’s that?
PULL JAR FROM PURSE AND PUT ON DESK
C: What's that?
A: look closely.
C: Is that a pee stick?
A: yup..... And it’s positive. I am pregnant.
C: holy shit. You’re pregnant?
A: sure am! Congrats Daddy.
C: Wow, guess we're doing this again.
HUGS ALL AROUND. :)
I went to the Dr on June 25th and we got to see the little peanut.
Guess what the conception date was??? MAY 27, 2012. We're procrastinators.
Here is the little peanut at 10 weeks.
Like father like ????.
I go back to the dr August 6th for my 12 week apt. They can make a "guess" and then over Labor Day we can go to one of the 3D/4D places and find out for sure! Then about 20 weeks my Dr will confirm. Can't wait.
In a nutshell, we're listing our house, moving to Monroe and having another baby! Never a dull moment in the Carper house!
Looks like we're going to need a "table for four" beginning February 2013 and we could not be happier!
