For those of you who don't know, Cliff will be starting a new job this summer! He is leaving Brookhaven High to come to Co-Lin as the boys/girls assistant basketball coach and an English instructor. As much as he loved BHS, this will be a better situation for our family, and for him personally and professionally. Basically, he will get to coach more, teach less, make more money and be home more often! Sounds like a no-brainer! He is excited for this new opportunity and we are thankful that God has blessed us with this at just the right time in our lives.
We are now a week away from knowing if we are having a boy or a girl! Patience is definitely not one of my strong points, so I am just dying to know! It doesn't help that we are leaving from my doctor's appointment heading to Destin for a few days of beach relaxation. Now I have 2 things to count down. We are going with our friends Chad and Anna, and I have been looking forward to this for months! I am calling it a babymoon just because it's more fun to say than vacation. For those not familiar with the term (Cliff thinks I made it up as an excuse for a vaca), it just means a last trip for a couple before the little one arrives. I might try to throw together one more babymoon before November, ha. I love going places! It probably won't help our bank account for me to be going to the land of outlet malls and cute boutiques the day that I find out the sex of our baby. I might get a little out of control. Anna will be my shopping partner and I'm sure she'll egg me on. This could be dangerous!
Today marks 16 weeks. I still haven't felt any movement yet, but according to the books, I should start feeling something soon. Can't wait for that! I have picked out names, paint samples, and a few options for furniture and bedding, so now we just need to find out who we are shopping for and I can get started on the nursery.
I'm sure I'll send out a mass text message to all who might be interested on Wednesday to share our news, but since we are leaving for the beach, I probably won't have time to update the blog. If I don't have your cell number, you will just have to wait until we get back! Ok, maybe I'll run home and update before we head out. We'll see if Cliff allows me time to do that. He can be a time nazi about trips sometimes. Looking forward to sharing the excitement!
