Finding out the Big News

It was the day after my birthday party in October and it began like any other day, but when it was over, our world had changed forever.

There was the surprise of a postive test, some tears, a few hugs, and a call to Mom. 

Immediately followed by a movie date to see Pitch Perfect to allow the news to sink in.

P.S.  I don't think I fully appreciated the hilariousness of that movie until seeing it for the second time this past week.  Perhaps my mind was elsewhere the first time. :)

October 28, 2012

At almost 16 weeks along, the news is STILL sinking in.  No more morning sickness, no belly, no maternity clothes, no movement yet, and no gender reveal until 20 weeks, but it's getting more real every day.  And we are very excited.

A New Year

January 1, 2013.

It's hard to believe that it's already the start of another year.  I feel like every year just goes by even more quickly than the last and 2012 was no exception.

Planning for the future has become a "norm" in our household.  As a medical school family, it's hard not to look to the future.  We think in terms of school years and terms.  When we finish basic sciences, after the Step is over, once we get through 3rd year are phrases I hear and say all to often. 

Just last night, Josh and I spent a couple of hours planning his electives for 4th year including elective choices and dates because they had to be in at midnight to be at the top of the stack for next year. It's crazy to think that his last year of medical school is right around the corner, that in seven months we will be finishing up residency applications and by this time next year, we will only be a handful of months away from the end of medical school.  If all works according to plan, Josh will finish his rotations late March/early April of 2014 and graduate in May 2014.

It's all very exciting and yet I have to say that as much as I look forward to what God has in store for us in the years to come, I am quite enjoying living in the here and now.  I have made a serious effort to stop living in the past over the last fews months, but I don't want to live for the future either. I'm living in the present and I gotta tell you, there's lots of exciting things happening RIGHT NOW.

Like this for instance:
Baby Scurlock arriving July 2013!
So here is to 2013, may we enjoy every single moment, in the moment.
