Our Life Together

Week 8: Kickin it up a notch!

This week was our final doc appointment in South Korea Lil. Week 7 and 8 were pretty busy times for you in there. You got some feets and hands and are about to lose that tail…sorry, but its less cool once you get out. You’re about 1.9 cm now and your super brain is now taking shape but thats not the only superness going on inside you.


Life..you are always changing.

First I have to apologize. I have been completely neglecting my blogging. Life has thrown us some interesting curve balls recently and I am just trying to keep my head on straight and get done the stuff that needs to be gettin a done.

10 years ago I thought I knew what my future held. (I was going to be a teacher)
5 years ago I thought something completely different. (I was going to be a rich sales woman)
3 years ago I had an epiphany and well changed my ideas for the future. (We was going to be expats and spend years all over the world in different countries)

dad constantly spilled my water with his feet.

so…Mom and Dad bought me a new water machine…..


Strength and Struggle


Hey Lil, its Dad

It wasn’t long ago that I started to imagine you in my life. I would sit and think about you and how important it was for me to be ready to welcome you into the world. I would always tell mommy I wanted everything to be perfect. I needed all the puzzle pieces together. I had some of the pieces already.

 


Fast and Furious Growth

Our little “dot”

This is very cool. Daddy and I have a secret and everyday we walk around our big city trying to to burst and tell everyone you are inside!

You must be growing ALOT! During the day I am always starving and exhausted. I think it is because you are sleeping and grow more when you are asleep then awake.

You are just a little over 5 weeks but already wipe me of my energy, but it’s okay, I am loving my long naps (Eunee too)


track stars…..

Every morning as I sit at the window, sipping on my coffee, I reflect on the deeper meanings in life. Sometimes I stare off into the great unknown and think…..”is that exhaust smoke or a…OH LORD JESUS!!! its a…..*cough, hmm…sorry, I digress. That was my ode to Sweet Brown..completely irrelevant but i’m such a sucker for autotune ….(click here) ;)


Your first…first

Today was a very special day. It was your first trip to the doctor, even at only 4 weeks and 1 day (we think). You are the little black spot inside of that white oval near the top of the picture.

Your doctor is a nice woman named Dr. Shin. She spoke a little English and gave us a cute book to keep track of your growth (and mine)

She said you were 2mm big. She said, “That dot is your preg.”

We already love you, our Preg.

Your Dad has nicknamed you little elephant (they are for good luck).

He wants to take a picture of you everyday so we can watch you grow.

Today is Day 16 we think.


Weekly Photo Challenge – Merge

 

The first thing that came to mind when I read this weeks photo challenge was our lives. Adam and I eloped a little over 2 years ago at this spot in Koh Samui, Thailand.

We eloped at The Kala Samui. You can read more about that amazing day here.

To merge is to blur the individuality or individual identity and on that day we created a partnership built on love, unity and a commitment to happiness.

 

merge with confidence and heart,

Nicole

superpowers.

Ironically, while catching up on some less than happy news this morning online, I stumbled upon a clip from last years TED conference given by Ron Gutman on the hidden powers of smiling. I needed something more positive so I watched and was very interested in what smile studies have revealed about this hidden superpower we all possess. If you need a reason to tap into your powers today I think its worth a watch……

power smile ;)
