I have figured out where to live, so now it is on to the new adventures: renovating our house, having a baby, and still finding ways to travel.

Our Baby Boy Has Arrived!
It has been really crazy since I have been in the hospital, but I wanted to officially make the annoucement that our baby is here. He arrived on Thursday, September 23rd at 12:53 am, weighing 7 lb. 14 oz. and at a length of 20 1/2 inches. After laboring for about 24 hours, I was happy for the labor to be over, but another set of concerns arose. Jack swallowed some meconium during delivery which was a concern and he was whisked away to the nursery. Unfortunately he has had to be under an oxygen hood ever since to help with his lungs and x-rays have shown some pneumonia. Thankfully the doctors and nurses have been treating him well and he is slowly getting better. Hopefully I will be able to hold him before I am discharged tonight. On a good note though, I have started pumping so it won't be long before he gets some breast milk! He is the cutest baby ever, which the most adorable cries and whimpers. And he looks just like his daddy! I just want to hold him forever. I love him already!
I started blogging to document a summer trip to work in Alaska and process through a very sad break-up. Things have only moved up for me as I met someone new, got married, moved all over the world, found a home, had a baby, and now prepare for baby #2. Life has its challenges, but nothing I can't live with!
