It's hard to believe I am more than 20 weeks pregnant already! Micah Haskell-Hoehl and I just had our last ultrasound and found out that we are....

...having a boy! I would have been just as excited to have a girl yet knowing the sex makes it all so much more real. Right away, I saw a vision for his future: him as an adult, walking on the street in a great coat and perhaps going to the ultrasound for his child and like that, how life goes on and on and on. 

It's both comforting and it's scary to feel how life keeps moving forward. This process is going both fast and slow and each day I feel heavier, more grounded and less sure of what it all means. 

Yet, there's a deep rightness it in. I like slowing down. It's necessary. I like feeling more fully human. I am learning to ride the waves of vulnerability and rushes of fear that come on suddenly and leave just as quickly.

Thank you for your support. I feel completely not alone in this process --the lovely parts and the challenging parts -- and that is truly the most comforting thing of all.
