What a beautiful 'how we met' story!!! You two are so meant for eachother! Your wedding dress is gorgeous too.
I can't wait to read your dd's birth story, and of course this next LO's birth story! TFS and where's my cookie?
I love how you met your Dh! What a great story!
The pics are all beautiful!!
I'm so glad to hear more about you!! I loved reading your story and seeing all the pics!!!
My first dd was a combo of Child led/parent led weaning as well. She was down to just twice a day on her own for only a few minutes each time. When I was 3 months pregnant with my second I just gave her a gentle nudge for a few weeks and then she was done. I feel blessed that me made it 23 months though, and I'm sure you feel blessed for the time you had with your dd as well. You did a great job!
Beautiful intro, Helina. (It makes me realize I left SO much out of mine...) I love the wedding dress, the house (gorgeous!), and those first pics of your DD. Wow, what a whirlwind when you realize you only met Tim in 2004! Like you, we didn't sit around once we were married due to my AMA; it makes for never a dull moment, I must say! Can't wait to see what you are hatching this time...(well, I CAN wait, as we have discussed so many times...but you know!).
Great intro Helina & those pictures are wonderful. My DH and I are huge music junkies too, we get to see Wilco in 4 weekends, woot! I can't wait and hope the baby enjoys getting down with mom & dad.
Loved your intro. I think I already knew some parts of it, but others were totally new. What a romantic beginning
and Lidia's sweet newborn pictures! I had forgotten what she looked like at that point (probably never saw them as I was one of the "newborn-nursing-fog" moms on our BB by the time you had her ). Wow, I still see so much of her in those. Then again, it's amazing how much she has changed.
we moved from vermont last year--- love the Northeast!!! miss it terribly!!!
and i went to belize to visit a friend 5 years ago---- such a beautiful country!
can't wait to follow your story!
Great intro Helina! And ITA- your wedding dress was gorgeous, I LOVE the back of it! And your house looks SO nice, great yard too. I don't think I had ever reead anywhere how you and dh met, so that was cool to read too.
I am so looking forward to tryig to keep up on your lodge (again!)
Do you have any gut feelings about the gender of the baby? (Or even want to share, if you do?)
And bring on the belly pics!
Thanks, everyone! Cookies for all!
Karina, you can totally go back and add to your story--it's your lodge, after all! You're right, it really has been a whirlwind. But prior to meeting Tim, I languished for many years in a couple of back-to-back LTRs, and looking back there was a whole lotta nothing packed in those years so it makes these 4yrs w/Tim seem just right!
Cindy, have a great time seeing Wilco! I'm jealous! They are so wonderful to see live. We travelled all over the NE and to Montreal to see them several times during our courtship, our wedding first dance was a Wilco song, and DD was born with Wilco in the background too! We last saw them live at an outdoor concert on a beautiful summer evening last year, DD was 1 and it was her first real concert (out of utero, that is!)
Ladybee, we want to go back to Belize so badly, it was magical. Where did you move to?
Kasey, I am thinking boy this time, but we all know how good I am at guessing! The pregnancy has been so different, but then again, that makes me wonder if it means it has to be a girl, since it couldn't possibly be THAT easy to predict!
