Happy Friday!  This morning is the first day in like a week where the sun is shining. Getting deeper into winter already makes us inherently less cheerful cuz of the lack of sunlight due to short days, but when there’s cloud-cover non-stop for weeks at a time, that’s certainly a more sad-feeling day to wake up to.  Not today!  Sun is brightly shining, Chelle woke up with a smile and a great attitude and that’s wonderful because I maybe didn’t feel so cheery this morning – combo of a headache and bad night’s sleep.  But, her smile brought me right to life and I am grateful for that.

I have planned to take the entire next week off of work, which I planned long before we know about Baby H’s Downs, but given all the heavy stuff from the last couple weeks, a good week off to just relax and spend time with the girls and celebrate Thanksgiving for a couple days will be great. In many ways I am dreading extended family get-togethers because it means we’ll either have to talk about this or people will already know and there will be some social awkwardness, but I think it’s probably going ot be therapeutic and I am worrying for nothing.

Until then, I am just going to plow through a stack of work today and then immerse myself in fun family time for the next 9 days….I might throw some wood-working projects and some holiday decorating in there, too ;-)

  1. Hi Cory and Michelle!
    I just found out from my dad that you are having a baby and I think that is so incredibly exciting! While you may have challenges along the road, I know that this little boy is a big blessing within our family :)
    This summer I was on pinterest (as I always am) and read over this article: http://www.kellehampton.com/2010/01/nella-cordelia-birth-story.html
    You have probably already read it, but in the off chance that you haven’t, I wanted to share it with you both. It is a really wonderful story and they also have a blog that you can check out and read to get information from.
    Can’t wait to see you at Thanksgiving and I will certainly be thinking about you!
