Big week!

It's been a big week in our household. After far too many years of waiting I finally have my green card. It was a complicated process with lots of paperwork and a scary interview where we had to prove we 'live as husband and wife (had to let that one go, this time)' but it all was worth it in the end. I can stop looking over my shoulder all the time and I guess it means we really are staying in the US!

We also got marriage equality in our state on Monday! I was a little surprised that Christie gave up without more of a fight but the writing was definitely on the wall. It was a fight that he had little chance of winning and sadly he has bigger goals that I'm hoping he's not successful with.

The death of my Nanny last month has put the fire under me to get back on the TTC roller coaster. I scheduled our appt with the RE for next month and lined up a sitter for N. It's strange to be technically starting at the beginning while feeling like I already know all that stuff already. We  may be using a different uterus but we've both put in our time there. Here's hoping that we will get that BFP quickly.

N is loving his new school and other than some issues with the early morning starts its going really well. He has already been in the nurses office twice so I'm hoping that this isn't a patten he plans to keep while he's at school. We are scheduling parent teacher conferences in the next couple of weeks so it will be good to hear what his teacher has to say about him. So far I've heard that he's a mellow guy that likes to assume the super hero poses on the playground!! Not sure about the mellow part but I'm not surprised about the super hero part. As stereotypical as it sounds he's all boy!! 
We feel so blessed to have him in our lives. 


  1. Oooooo this is ALL exciting stuff!!!! If you time things right, you can be looking at a Halloween baby next year. Which I think is really cool. As always, I will be thinking of you all and sending some serious baby wishes toward NJ.

    I did not see Christie giving up so easy either, but I agree, I think he has his eyes set on 2016 and that "most" conservatives are realizing the marriage equality fight is a lost one. At least I hope so :)

    I used to be one of those "go to the nurse's office" kids, yeah, you want to curb that early...just saying, lol

    He is SO CUTE and I can totally envision him striking one of the superhero poses that I know so very well ;)

  2. You have had a BIG week, wow! Huge congratulations on getting your green card. One of my BF's from Vancouver had to go through the same process and I remember just how frustrating it was for her. That's awesome that you've done it.

    And could N get any cuter, seriously?!
