Josh and I have had a busy weekend. We went to Oktoberfest, made a hospital run, visited friends with a new baby, watched football over at a friend’s house, made a new dog friend for Rosco over at the park and dinner tonight with friends! All in 2 days!
Oktoberfest was fun… mostly for Josh this year. He loves having a constant DD! Two of our other pregnant friends were there with their husbands. Talk about looking out of place! The three pregnant ladies surrounded by steins of beer.
Our hospital run was a relieving experience. At my last check up the doctor had me on ‘watch’ for preeclampsia. After a night of multiple symptoms, Josh took me in to get some testing done. After an hour of monitoring me and the baby, they determined that I do not have preeclampsia at the moment. I was released feeling much better that I would not have to go in to immediate labor. So, a few more weeks. Maybe 🙂
Josh found out today that he has been chosen for the Admiral’s Aide position!
He will be working for Admiral Clingan who began his tour of duty as commander, U.S. 6th Fleet Commander; commander, Allied Joint Command Lisbon; deputy commander, U.S. Naval Forces Europe; Joint Forces Maritime Component commander, Europe and commander, Striking and Support Forces NATO here in August.
Everyone back home… expect a one month delay on his response time 🙂 As always, e-mail me if you need something from him!
After 5 long months of waiting for our crib to arrive overseas, it finally has! We were able to set up the nursery. It is well on its way… now we are just waiting on baby!!
A big thanks to a particular grandparent for all of the furniture!!!
Last night Josh and I went to a “wetting down” party for our friend Carl who was recently promoted. The party was in a neat little town called Monte di Procida. For those who would like to see what an Italian Scottish pub looks like, you can check out the website http://www.tommyspub.it/ Carl and Heidi hired an Italian band who played ‘American rock’. The party was great fun.
Heidi is my friend who is due one day after me. It is always nice to get together and compare notes. However, after last night I told Heidi that we can no longer take photos together. Heidi looks crazy good for being pregnant! She embodies the cute pregnant lady look. Seriously, I am twice her size. Josh thinks their baby will be half the size of ours!
