The last week and a half has been full.
It has finally just begun to settle back into routine and I am thankful for the peace.
This past Monday we said goodbye to Jeremie's Grandfather, who passed away peacefully at age 97.
Grandpa Fred was a real cornerstone of the family, and a very devoted Catholic. He loved visits and phone calls, and whenever you spoke to him, he would always say: "It's wonderful to hear your voice." "I love you so much." And would always, always end with a "God bless and keep you."
Jeremie and I had the honor of having him at our wedding, just three years ago, where he had me up and dancing, and gave a beautiful impromptu wedding speech.
He is very missed, but was so happy to move on into the Father's Glory.
Jeremie and I also had the wonderful pleasure this week of finding out that our little one is a GIRL!
I am so excited, having been feeling "girl" for a few months now.
As I enter month 6, I'm really feeling her move and thump around in there; I also think that this/next week I'll really "pop."
The pressure on my stomach has been intense, and I seem to be doubling size overnight.
Patrons at the Library are even staring to comment: "Last week I couldn't tell, but you're really starting to show now!!" Said one excited patron.
So we're thinking pink! Mum and my sister Vanessa are thrilled - so far there have only been grandsons, a little grand-daughter was a lovely surprise.
Jeremie has already admitted defeat, and knows he'll be wrapped around her little finger quite easily!
Other than that, we're still packing and preparing for the move. Just a week and a bit left!
I feel a tad overwhelmed, but am really starting to dig in now and get packing done. (Thanks Mum! ;) )
Hopefully I'll be able to update soon - but it may not be until after the move.
Have a lovely Wednesday!
