First Anniversary

We celebrated our first wedding anniversary on November 26th. Here is a list of the events of the past year, in no particular order:
  • 9 months of sickness (AKA pregnancy)
  • Found out at 20 weeks that our gorgeous baby boy had bilateral club feet.
  • I moved from MN to WA permanently, big road trip across North Dakota, Montana, to transport my car etc.
  • We moved from G's apartment to a rental house. Various weekends spent looking for houses and lots of time spent packing/unpacking.
  • Purchasing new furniture/electronics for the house.
  • I traveled twice to Minnesota to visit my parents
  • G went to China twice (work related)
  • Trip to Cancun, Mexico (last vacation before baby)
  • G went to California for work twice, I joined him once and we visited my best friend in San Jose and his cousin's family.
  • Lots of dinner parties & outings with various friends.
  • I worked from home (on a contract).
  • A trip to Vancouver with friends (G's work related)
  • Weekend road trips to Cascades, Leavenworth, Lake Chelan, etc.
  • Baby shower weekend, two of my close friends and brother visited.
  • Baby Om arrived. My Mom visited for 2 weeks and then G's Mom came to stay for a while.

G took the day off Wednesday to hang out at home. In the morning I gave G his anniversary gift. Later, we had dinner at an Italian place in Snoqualmie, WA and then we went to Roaring River Bed & Breakfast in North Bend, WA. It was nice to get away from baby duties, especially since G's Mom is here to take care of Om so we did not have to place him with a babysitter. Nevertheless, I missed Om. :-)

Happy Anniversary! You sure have had a full year. :)

I used to be a part of the nosurgeryforclubfoot group in yahoo groups as well as a few other clubfoot yahoo groups. I stopped visiting years ago, but lately have been thinking of heading back. There is a mom there with a website ( who has a son who has atypical clubfeet. I think I could learn a lot from her.

Have a great week!
