This past week we had our 4 year anniversary. It's hard to believe that it's been that long, but sometimes it's hard to believe it hasn't been longer.
I'm so lucky I ended up with Jer, I can't imagine having gone through all the stuff we went through these last 3 years with anyone else who would have been as understanding as him. I'm surprised sometimes to remember back to what I was like when I was on some of my pre-surgery hormone pills and how horrible I was, and he still loves me, even after that. I'm a lucky girl.
Our actual anniversary was Tuesday, so I went up to his new job and we went to lunch at a little deli called Pazzo Vita. It was good food, but it was even better to see him in the middle of the day, and finally see where he's working now. He's really starting to enjoy his new job, I'm so proud of him. We had our actual anniversary date last night. He came home from work and had flowers for me! I thought he just picked them up at the grocery store, but he actually ordered them special. Purple ones for my favorite color, and pink and blue ones for the baby! I thought that was so sweet!
After I got all fancied up (meaning I made my hair curly) we went to The 5 Alls. Jer told me about this place a couple years ago, but we still hadn't been there. I told him this year that I wanted to go, so he made reservations and we headed up. It's a cool little restaurant that's sort of medieval and they serve you 5 courses. It was really good food, and A LOT of it. Jer got the steak and shrimp and I got the chicken (possibly the best chicken I've ever had at a restaurant). It was expensive, but definitely worth it. We brought back 3 boxes of food, mine, his, and the bread they put out. I'm sure we'll go back, but who knows when.
As for baby news, I'm 17 weeks along and had another check up this past week. Everything's going good. I'm gaining weight (although I think I'm still in the 'is she getting fat or is she pregnant' phase) and the baby's heart was sounding great. I think I've started to feel it moving around here and there, but not on a regular basis yet. It's kind of cool. We'll find out what it is November 12. I'm surprised I'm not more anxious about it, but I think it's mostly that I don't care what we have as long as it's healthy; finding out what it is will just be a bonus. I personally have NO idea what it is, but I've had a lot of people tell me they think it's a boy. Recently I've started to hear more people thinking it's a girl, so it's about even. It'll be interesting to find out for sure so we can settle on a name and I can call it by it's name instead of calling it 'it' all the time.
Thanks for all the prayers, love and support!
