3. Telling and Home

Dear Baby,
I told your Uncle Mark about the fact that we are starting to plan for you last night. He is excited of course. He is in the process of buying a condo in downtown San Jose. I am happy for him, and a tad jealous. Daddy and I are renting an apartment here in Fresno, and while we like it and it has enough room for us and you eventually, we do hope to move somewhere a bit more family-like down the road.
It isn’t that Uncle Mark is moving to a new place, it is that his new place has a sense of permanency to it that we just don’t have. I haven’t lived anywhere longer than a year and a half since I was 17, little baby. Almost half my life. I really don’t want that to be your experience, I want you to have a sense of place, of roots, of home.
Someday we will move from Fresno and hopefully wherever we move to will be a good permanent place for our little family. In the meantime…
Today was a busy day for me and I didn’t eat as healthy as I should have. When Daddy is in the field, it is sometimes hard for me to make myself eat a good healthy dinner. I’ll try to do better tomorrow.
Daddy is gone this week. He misses home, and I miss him. Thankfully Olive the cat keeps me company. 
Tonight I played World of Warcraft and worked on my current crochet project: a little blue and green bag. I need all the crochet practice I can get if I am going to make you a blanket or a stuffed bunny or a little baby hat…
