It's been a long time

I'm not sure if anyone reads this anymore, but hopefully I have a few faithful readers who will discover this post. The lack of posting has not been due to a lack of adventure in our lives, it's been one of those things I have continued to put off and put off and put off. However, I am back, and hopefully will be more consistent in the future.

We had a very exciting fall! In October, we found out that we were expecting a baby! We are thrilled and excited, and it was so much fun to tell all of our family and friends. I will be 24 weeks on Friday and am feeling pretty good. We have decided not to find out the gender of our baby, and the suspense is not killing me yet, but I am definitely pretty curious. Over the last 2 weeks, I have really started to feel him/her move a lot, and Matt has been able to feel it to! It is very fun and definitely makes it more and more real. It amazes me that there is a little tiny baby in there! As of last week, the baby was about the size of a large mango. The baby is due June 17th and we can't wait for June to get here! I'm so excited about holding my baby and seeing what he/she will look like!

Our other exciting news happened the first week of January. Matt got a promotion at work! He is now a Mutual Fund Wholesaler which is what he has always wanted to do, and the reason we moved to Boston in the first place. He has worked really hard and I'm so proud of him! Becoming a wholesaler also meant a big move for us! We moved at the beginning of February to Indianapolis, IN. We loved our time in Boston and miss all of our friends there, but are so happy to be in Indy! Boston was always a temporary home for us, an adventure for a few years, and especially after finding out about the baby, we were just itching for a more permanent home to settle down in. We feel that we were really able to experience everything New England had to offer and we are so thankful for the time we spent there. But now, we are thrilled to be in Indy, we love our new apartment and have felt really welcomed by our new church. It is definitely still the beginning of our journey here, but we are so excited to see it all unfold.

I hope to be settled enough soon to get some pictures of the apartment and as the weather warms up, I'll take some pictures of our new adventures here! I hope to update the blog a bit more often, so check back for pictures and more!
