Guess Who's Back

Wow, what a way to return! I'm so over-the-moon thankful for every sweet, loving, supportive comment that was left over the past week while I tried to catch-up on my "bumpdates." If you read any one of my Week 5-8 letters, you probably caught on that this has been a definite, surreal experience since we first found out in April. Even if we had actually planned for this to happen, I don't think it still would be any less of  a shock. I honestly can't picture myself as a Mom so it was my hope that by writing to Baby Pep, s/he might over time, become a little more real to me. And hopefully, one of these days, I'll feel that Mommy-Baby connection.

For the last week, Chuck and I were checked out as we spent a week on the beach in my family's favorite place: Cape May, NJ. Mom and sister met us down there and we spent every day relaxing and playing in the ocean, shopping, and eating our weight in seafood. Very little documentation actually occurred as I was focusing on being present and tuning out the everyday buzz that I left behind in Ohio. It was a much-needed break, but I am so happy to be back in my little home in my little town.

I was able to meet up with my college besties the first day we were down tha' shore, Chuck and I went for a morning rollerblading trip down the boardwalk and the highlight of our week was when Chuck and I had our own little dinner date at this place called Elaine's that does a nightly dinner theater. Chuck just so happened to be seated right in the line of fire and may have gotten teased once or twice throughout the performance.

It was the first time in a long time that Hubby and I had so much undivided time together and it truly reminded us of how much we adore each other's company. He's my bestie fo' life and I couldn't imagine a better partner for this journey than him.

P.S. Stay tuned for more letters to baby this week as I try to get all caught up!
