Shawn and I have just returned from the most fabulous 3 week vacation we could have ever dreamed of. As much as we enjoyed the time exploring all that Thailand had to offer, I think we really enjoyed reconnecting with one another. We were far from reality and the hustle and bustle of our jobs, our home life and mostly, all things baby. We were able to take a solid break from it all and really focus on one another. We felt this was really important and going forward, so much of our attention is going to be focused on wee baby long. I was doing some more reading today about Zika and our next steps and according to the government website I will be clear to start trying after January 26th (thank you frozen sperm). So whenever my February cycle starts, it will be go time! It’s crazy to think that this whole new chapter will be starting. So many new emotions and roller coasters but I think mentally and physically we are both better prepared now than before. Shawn constantly reminds me this is the beginning. We are finally starting and everything that has led us to this moment has just been preparing us to truly start trying. I don’t know that I’ll have much to report between now and February but I’m super excited for the new year.
