Adamo Adventures - so much to cover, so little motivation!

Things to blog about:
- Halloween
- Bridget's birthday interview (ugh...I roll my eyes at the thought of posting to youtube)
- Fall activities (pumpkin patch, school carnival, birthday parties, etc.)
- State Fair visits
- German invasion (the Broses are here for the entire school year! Awesome!)
- My birthday (oh wait, that's tomorrow...I'm not behind just yet!)
- I'm sure there's more crap on my phone/fancy camera that needs dumping

Timing just ain't on my side these days. Alas, I continue to have the best intentions. I'm thankful for a healthy family these days, a law school semester that is winding down, TONS of family coming in town for Thanksgiving (both sissies with husbands in tow, all the Adamo clan is already here...), and so many supportive friends to share life's ups and downs.

Soooo...this has happened:

Yep. My grand plans of waiting to post to the blog until I had an adorably cute photo of all the current Adamos holding brass instruments, with a lone, un-manned tuba sitting to the side with a sign saying "The Adamos will be a QUARTET - May 2014!"...or something cheesy but fun like that...yeah, that ain't gonna happen any time soon. This will have to do! And BTW - my belly looked extra poppy at that moment, so I captured it while I could. Pretty sure the cookie I scarfed from Starbucks right beforehand had something to do with the larger-than-13-weeks-should-look appearance...

We're so very thankful and happy to be on this journey, as its a gift we've waited a while to receive. I look forward to finally posting the many journal entries I've composed over the past few months, sharing my feelings of disappointment while we waited and waited for that positive pregnancy test to show up. So many couples/families wait years and years, often without ever seeing success, for their own precious baby to arrive. I was in agony after a few measly months! I think it's a story that should be shared, so I look forward to putting it out there in the open.

Regardless, we're pregnant! Agh! What are we thinking?! Well, we're glad to be given a clean bill of health in this, our almost 14th week. I no longer need to post and then save when chatting about baby stuff, so apologies in advance if non-chronological posts get confusing. I'll do my best to make them obvious!

Lastly, I've hesitated to put an "official" post of FB so far, mostly because I remember how painful it was for me to see (what felt like) post after post of friends sharing their joyful news (which was still SO JOYFUL for me to hear!) at this time of year. I'm going to do it at some point, but I've just found a different perspective on the whole thing, so I'm trying my best to be sensitive. But as I said, I'll put something official up soon, I'm sure. Until then, let's keep this to the blogosphere!

Happy my birthday weekend to all! Hahahaha :).
