I’ve decided the anticipation you get from expecting a baby is similar to the anticipation you get when you are building a house. You wonder will it be a boy or will it be a girl? Will he or she be healthy? What will their personality be like?

This morning, we have the opportunity to go and have our first ultrasound so to speak. We are heading to the architect’s to see their first concepts at the floor plan, site plan and the 3-D of the outside of the home. There is excitement, but also present is that nervous anticipation you experience prior to the doctor’s visit where you get to see your baby for the first time or hear the heartbeat. At that moment, you know the baby is healthy and you’re on track for success.

Those feelings are what I’m feeling today. I’m excited but I’m also nervous and really looking forward to the completion of the home build. For us, this will be a long gestational period. You see, even a year from today we still won’t be in our finished home. We are purposefully extending the building timeline to fit our needs.

In other words, this baby is going to take a while to deliver and while we’re waiting you shouldn’t expect this blog turn into a design blog. Do expect a few updates now and then about the process of selling our current house and the building process. We’re really enjoying looking forward and working with the local team we’ve assembled to build our forever home. It’s going to be a great addition to our Team.
