This will just be a quick update, because my computer is on the fritz and I’m waiting to get it fixed.Today was going to be a big day for the Tjaders. It still is, just in a different way.
I’m officially 20 weeks pregnant today and it’s our 2-year wedding anniversary. We’d planned to celebrate with our 20-week ultrasound and hopefully find out the sex of the baby over a romantic dinner. We were going to have the ultrasound tech seal the results in an envelope so we could find out just the two of us. Then, we were going to get Tyler’s parents a “reveal cake” and also take one to Lake of the Ozarks for the Blanchette family vacation this weekend. Everyone was to cut into the cakes at the same time to reveal pink or blue, boy or girl. Obviously, we’re not going to Lake of the Ozarks and our ultrasound has been moved to July 16. All of that hoopla seems so silly at this point anyway. We just want a healthy mama and baby.
Instead, T and I are celebrating with takeout, cheesecake and a Twins game on TV. It’ll still be special. All of this really puts into perspective one of my favorite sayings — one that we have hanging in the bedroom: “It doesn’t matter where you go in life … it’s who you have beside you.”
