Where we are now:
I was going to start back up again on another round of IVF a couple weeks ago. However Micah wisely advised we wait. I'm so glad we are taking a little break. I need this time to try to feel normal again. IVF hormones sure do play a number on you, emotioanlly and physically. We are going to take a month or two to re-group before we go at it again. I'm planning on filling the next month with some therepeutic embroidery and some good reading. Any good books you would recommend?
We have a lot to be grateful for. The most obvoius right now is our little Eleni. In just a couple weeks we will be celebrating her 2nd birthday. Wow, 2? Really?? My does time fly. I remember in highshcool thinking how fun it would be to have kids and throw fun birthday parties for them. I had possibly the greatest example for throwing a great party-my mom. From the Mad Hatter Tea Party where my dad dressed up as an old English lady to have tea with us, to my swan princess party where all of us girls dressed up as ballerina's, struck a pose, and then my dad ran out in a leotard to lift us up and twirl us in the air. Ah the memories. I'm so glad I have my little E so I can make such memories for her. Although I don't know if I will ever get Micah to dress up in a leotard...
Over the next couple weeks I will be doing posts about memories of Eleni's life so far. Letter's I'm writing to Eleni in fact. From the moment I first held her right up until now. Can't wait to relive those memories again.
Here is a little video of pictures from her 1st birthday. It was such a fun special day. Xoxo
