August Celebrations

Lots of celebrations this month  - my birthday, my husband's birthday, our wedding anniversary...friends and family weddings! 

We are also traveling to Prague to celebrate my sister's wedding. I was initially back and forth with this decision given Emily would only be 3 months at the end of the month. I have asked everyone that I could, and all of the interwebs on traveling with a newborn. I've taken some comfort that my doctor said "well why not?". Am still nervous about taking her. It wasn't too long ago that I could barely go four blocks without wanting to come back to our home so I can nurse, change or soothe my baby. I am learning to understand her different cries and cues - but key word is that, still learning.

I've started a checklist for our international trip to hopefully be best prepared, but I know that it is a different ballgame with a little one in tow. Additionally we decided to surprise my sister (we love to surprise!) so let's see how that goes. We did have to mention to her fiancĂ© to save us spots for the different venues.

I have so much to be grateful for - a loving partner who cooks, clean, works extra hard and puts up with my mood swings, our family and friends who have come to see and help us the last few months with the baby..and my Emily for being here and giving us warm smiles every time she wakes up.
