There is so much to look forward to in the coming months for The Wilkes. I mean, besides the little life growing inside me, there is much more!
Next month Emmy, my mom, and I will board a Delta flight and head north to Minnesota so visit my aunt, cousin, and grandmother ("Boo"). Emmy keeps talking about going on the airplane to see Cindy and Boo, and I'm looking forward to playing the snow with her and getting to see Emmy and my grandmother together. My grandmother is a big part of my life and I spent so much of my childhood with her and have such fond memories of our time together. It breaks my heart to know that Emmy won't get the same memories with her because she has Alzheimer's, but we can cherish the time we have while we have it.
At the end of March, my bestie, Ashley, will be visiting for a weekend and we will attend the Taylor Swift concert in Columbia. I realize I'm 27 and pregnant with my second child, but I'm really excited about it and so excited to get to do it with Ashley. The next day, I'll be throwing a baby shower, along with three other lovely ladies, for another bestie, Crissy (aka Emmy's Godmother). It is going to be an awesome weekend!
I'm also in the process of planning my 10 year high school reunion with some fellow classmates. I'm hoping it all turns out well.
Then, at the end of June, Crissy, Emmy, and Crissy's newborn daughter and I will be heading to Illinois to visit our friend Sarah and her newborn as well. It should be an interesting trip with three kids in the mix, but I'm sure we will have such a good time together.
In August, we move - only God knows where at this point.
Soon after that, we will be welcoming our second child.
I'm so excited about the upcoming events that even just typing this post, my heart is beating faster. God is so good!
