Life Lately – July 6, 2018

Somehow, we are already a week into July. I’m not complaining! We have a lot to look forward to this month. It’s been a while since I’ve done a Life Lately post, so I thought I’d take the time to update y’all on what’s been going on with the Gregorys the last few months.

Work is Crazy!

For those of you who don’t know, I work full-time in healthcare marketing. In the last few months, we- as in my team of 7- have been working hard to launch a brand new website. My role in all of this is to schedule, produce, art direct and choose photos for all 200+ pages of the new site. It’s been quite overwhelming, but very satisfying work. Fortunately, we are just a few weeks away from launch, but that just means crunch time is here. I haven’t really had a second to breath, let alone focus on this blog! Really, this has been the most prominent thing going on in my life for the last few months and I’m so excited to launch and get back to a normal work routine!

We Find Out The Gender Next Week!

David and I scheduled our “20 week” anatomy scan on our third wedding anniversary. This means we will actually be finding out the gender at 21 weeks, but the sentiment of finding out on our anniversary was worth the wait.

We aren’t doing anything fancy – in fact we decided to do the same thing we did when we found out Finn was a boy. We have our doctor’s appointment at 1pm. We will have the nurse write the gender on a piece of paper and put it into a sealed envelope. We plan to go out to dinner that night and open the envelope together, just the two of us! Then we will start making calls to tell everyone. Once again, I will probably not put any gender on this blog since my dad reads it and he doesn’t want to know!

Finn Turned 2… and We Are All Exhausted!

I can’t say I wasn’t warned, but as soon as Finn turned two, he embraced all the stereotypes of being two. Testing limits, climbing on everything, refusing food, throwing fits, fake crying. It’s been an adventure! He’s also been quite chatty and telling us stories that are quite difficult to decipher.

All that aside, I think this is my favorite age yet. It’s so fun to plan things that we know he will enjoy and to watch him learn new things on a daily basis. He’s truly a little boy at this point and I think this is the age that I had in mind when I was pregnant with him and picturing being a mom. I love that he sleeps well and enjoys brushing his teeth! I love how excited he gets when he sees cows on the side of the road. I can’t wait to take him on vacation and experience even more new things with him.

  1. Love catching up with you all. My first impression of David’s photo was how much Finn looked like his Dad in that shot. Then the mystery was solved !Glad you’re feeling somewhat better. Sounds like busy, busy, busy all around in your world. See you soon ! Love, Gram Rath
