I'll fast forward through the past 204 days:
Spring Training was great.
Found out I was PREGNANT on March 31st.
Drove up to Syraucuse, NY April 3rd.
Traveled to Lehigh Valley, PA.
Collin got called up in April.
Flew to CA for a week with my Mom to pack up our apartment and move everything into storage (we are now officially homeless!)
Traveled to Ohio and Rochester before Collin got called up at the end of May.
Told our family we're expecting a sweet baby on May 27th (12 weeks along).
FL to see my parents, there 3 days, Collin got called up, flew to OH, drove to DC, one day. June 16th
Road Trip! DC-Chicago White Sox-LA Angels. Collin got to fulfill a childhood dream of pitching on the mound at Angels Stadium :)
Found out we're having a DAUGHTER on June 30th (17 weeks) - totally thought it was a boy
Collin got called up while in Ohio, flew out to Denver August 3rd.
Collin's parents visit for 6 days, and of course didn't get to see Collin pitch ONCE! :(
24 weeks pregnant! August 19th
Road Trip! DC-Cincinnati(Christian, Rachael and Grace came!)- Atlanta(saw an old childhood friend!)
Today: September 5th, 23 more days left in the season.
I truly am SO thankful for all of the blessings God has given us this season. Every year I feel like we learn more life lessons that will equip us for the future. When roster moves don't make sense, and it seems like things aren't "fair," it just made us trust God even more because we know He has a great plan for us, and even though the path might not seem straight, God knows exactly what He is doing. I am so proud of my husband's attitude through the ups and downs. He never loses faith and just continues to trust God and maintain that exuberant *unique* personality that he has:) Being blessed with our sweet baby girl has really kept things into perspective as well. All the small things melt away when you feel her give you a little high five. (whoah just got a lump in my throat. Those horomones:)) I'll write a more in depth pregnancy post soon.. before she comes, I swear.
I apologize that this post is just a celebrated timeline, but I kind of liked being able to look at the last 7 months in one glance, if nothing else it made me count my blessings.
