9 Months

The other day when I worked with Steve, I commented on the fact that we'd been at this nearly 9 months. He responded that he didn't think it had been that long. So I counted off the months on my fingers and, sure enough, today makes nine months. If this was a pregnancy, we'd be welcoming a new bundle of joy right now.

In many ways, these past nine months have been like a pregnancy.

The First Trimester

There's small changes here and there, mostly inward ones that others can't really see. We're both a little nervous about this new way of doing things and trying hard not to mess anything up while we're learning.

The Second Trimester

We're finally getting past the initial nervousness. Things are starting to change more. Still a lot of inward changes. but things are starting to show outside as well.

The Third Trimester

We're getting used to things now and settling in for the long run. Lots of growth, both inside and out. We're excited to see what we've made together.


  1. Very cute analogy Dana. :) And now you have given birth and will deal with all the ups and downs of child raising! ;) Good luck on your continuing journey.


  2. That's a really interesting analogy. I hope you two have fun with that bundle of joy ;) I bet it will be really neat to see what you've made, too. Happy nine months!

    1. Thanks Riley. It is already interesting to see the changes. I can't wait to see what comes next.

  3. I love the analogy Dana, very cute. Congrats! It sounds like you two are doing really well :)


    1. Thanks Roz. We are doing great these days. It's hard to believe how far we've come these past nine months.


We love to hear what you think, but please be polite.
