First Day of Work

Today is Chris's first day of work at his new job. We had to go out last night and get him a few sport coats, since that's part of what he has to wear. Sport coat, shirt, tie, pants. Poor guy's gonna be sweating all day, every day.

I also wanted to share pictures of the Hanukah party at my grandparents' house. I have a HUGE family and we get together every New Year's Day to celebrate. PopPop makes french toast and everyone sits at a super long table and eats and catches up and then we exchange presents. Since I only see them once or twice a year, it's really nice to see everybody and their kids and to see my grandparents. I hope no one minds me posting their pictures on the Internet. It's not like I have a far-reaching audience or anything. :-)

Today also marks one month since our miscarriage. It's been a rough road and each day is a little easier, but today is a little more difficult because of my friend's daughter's baby. I'm still waiting to hear from her but I'm assuming it's over now. I just keep thinking about that poor child (she's 19) having to go through labor to give birth to a stillborn baby. It makes me so sad. I know there are a lot of people out here (readers of my blog, ladies from my baby boards, my friends and family) that are thinking of her and sending her their thoughts and prayers.

I know it is a difficult day for you. Chris certainly looks handsome and professional. Hopefully Chris will have a wonderful first day at his new job and many more great days leading to a great future.
