Josh is in Fargo as we speak - I made the suggestion of getting a Wii for both of our bdays put together. Who knows if they are in stock or not, but I decided the SLR I want is just too spendy right now - maybe someday :) I think the Wii could be fun for us to do together - and probably freak out Boscoe which is always fun!
A couple of other notes for today:
- My raise this year starts on Monday - YAY!
- Two of my coworkers are quitting - which is kinda rough, but I wish them well.
- And as I kinda figured - this month is out for babies for us, on to the next :)

A few of you know this, and I have decided that it is OK that I like to talk about it - Yes, Josh and I are trying to concieve (or as all the sites call it - TTC). So far this is our first month trying, so we will not know if we are successful or not for awhile - over 6 years we have been together without getting pregnant (which doesn't surprise me - I have never been on birth control, but we have never once until now had unprotected sex) - pretty crazy. We have talked about kids for probably about a year now :)
At first, I thought we should keep this to ourselves, knowing that we very well may not be able to become pregnant for months, and God forbid, if we couldn't at all or if something happened once we were pregnant. Either way this all turns out - I know that we love each other so very much and are ready to expand our family. I have such a great support system in all of my family and friends, so I want to include you all in our journey.
I am so excited and scared, and I feel consumed by it all. It's pretty much all I think about these days. I don't have any books yet, but I have been reading as much as I can online, and talking to all of the wonderful moms that I know. Overall, the gory details are probably the scariest but more than that I know I am going to love the magic of it all - having a tiny person growing inside you, watching them grow, feeling how they feel - it really is so amazing. I will be the first person to say that I have never been a huge "baby person", but not in the sense that I am anti-baby, more that I always felt they were so fragile and I was not equipped to care for them correctly. I have always been told that things will change when the child is your own - I am actually starting to believe it. I have had such great moms around me to look up to - my own mom & grandmas, new moms like Emily, and friends like Stacy. People who I know I could call any time I need advice and they will always be there for me.
Josh has been so wonderful, keeping me sane and keeping up with all of my goofy comments and the wealth of information I unload on him after surfing the web - I send him random links all the time :) He is happy to talk about our plans as well - he has wanted kids as long as I have known him.
This is only the beginning - I plan to post questions I have here, progress, and whatever else - I am an open book and I like it that way - it's my therapy I guess so feel free to ignore my rants :)
I heard the song posted previously (Capri by Colbie Callait - I bought the CD for Josh because we both really liked the song Bubbly) not long after precious Anna was born, and loved it so much. I hope soon I can think of it as it relates to me!
