9 Weeks

So, not much to update. Feeling tired still but cutting out caffeine and going to bed at 9:30 every night has helped. Well, helped with the exhaustion but I get nothing done around the house or work at night. I've lost a couple pounds despite the non-exercise schedule and eating gobs and gobs. I guess breastfeeding and growing a human take a lot of extra calories. I'm going to tell my boss next week. Only 2 of my coworkers know and for some reason I'm dreading telling everyone. Probably because it's not good timing at work to go on maternity leave a year after you start. Plus my boss has been super stressed and I hate to add to that. But we have a team lunch next week and that feels like as good a time as any instead of awkwardly blurting it out in the small confines of his office, just the two of us. Wish me luck with all that. We are trying to figure out things financially on our end to get us through the end of Jason's doctorate program next year. Looks like we ma…

How Bout Those Royals??!

So the Royals are going to the World Series after an 8-0 undefeated postseason sweep. First time even in the postseason since 1985...29 years is a long time to wait but this has been so amazing to see that it's definitely been worth it! Go Royals!!

Jason's Business Card Ceremony

Last Friday (Oct 3), Jason had his business card ceremony. Cleveland makes a mini production out of the student getting their Intern business cards for clinic. Sort of a milestone graduation ceremony. There's a lunch, some speeches, each student walks on stage to shake hands with the clinic director and president of Cleveland and get their picture taken. It's a simple ceremony but it represents a huge accomplishment and a lot of hours [and money] spent to get to this point. 

Jason's parents made the drive from Texas to attend and we brought all three boys. He'd never say it, but I know it meant the world to him that we could all be there. 

I cannot express how proud I am of him. He's come so far, gotten through a lot of tough days/nights/exams and he's done an amazing job. He is going to be an awesome DC, I'm so impressed with how well he does already and he's still learning! I can't wait to see him finish his journey and watch him accomplish all of h…

We Have An Announcement...

Beckett would like to announce, he's being promoted to Big Brother. Baby Allen #3 will be here on/around May 27, 2015. This baby is a BIG surprise...frankly, I'm kicking myself for being so stubborn about the whole "I don't want to mess with my milk supply so I'm just going to count my days in my cycle and not take my birth control" decision. But we are just going to move passed all that and my total panic attack over what the hell we are going to do for 7 month [or more] till Daddy finishes school and starts working. . .[pardon me while I freak out for a brief moment for the billionth time] but I digress. We are slowly moving passed shock and in to excitement, as we start to announce the news to everyone. At least we've had fun with all the responses everyone's had. Babies are always exciting good news, right? Moving on, I had my first dr appointment yesterday. All is well so far and I got to see our newest little bean and his/her heart beating in a s…
