It's a Blizzard Out There Update

Today is a SNOW DAY, so I am giving you an update. A very great update. We are supposed to get 6-12 inches of snow in our area, so we are stuck inside all day and I left my papers to grade at work. Oops. ;)

So, Jordan is a crawling machine. He is all over the place and takes his drumsticks with him EVERYWHERE!

That's it for him. He just crawls everywhere. I get to start planning his birthday party soon. We are doing a Mickey Mouse Clubhouse theme and I cannot wait! I can't believe that he is going to be 1 in a month and a half!

This past weekend Mike, Jordan, and I took a drive to Valparaiso, IN (where we want to move in a few years) to check it out. Oh my God. I'm in love. The downtown area is adorable and there is so much to do out there. It seems like the perfect place to raise our little man. We drove around a lot and stopped at Pikk's Tavern in the downtown area to eat lunch.

It was chilly, so we didn't do much, but we just wanted to look around. We timed how long it would be from the expressway exit in Valparaiso to the exit that Mike's job in Illinois is close to. It only took us 33 minutes. Not bad. I could not commute to work though. My job is easily an hour and 30 minutes from there. I am working on getting an Indiana teaching license and I'm going to start applying in NW Indiana this summer. It's so hard to get a teaching job, but if I got lucky right away,I guess I would just deal with the commute until we move.

In fertility news, last I mentioned, we were pretty sure that we were going to end up destroying our embryos. My new insurance company was going to make me go to another clinic MUCH farther away AND I thought that I had to pay the $50 copay every single time I went in there. Well, my friend/coworker (who was fighting the denial for insurance coverage) got the approval since our doctor is in network and the clinic realized that they should not have been charging her every time she went in. She should've only paid that copay when she went in to meet with the doctor (which would be for a change in plans with treatment). I found out this GREAT news a day after I was looking at the paper that I was sent to destroy the embryos and trying to talk myself into filling it out. I didn't want to and I couldn't get myself to. Now I don't have to! :) So, this summer we are going to meet with the doctor and come up with a plan to transfer (1 or all of) our embryos in August. I am SO happy about this. I have always wanted two kids and I really want Jordan to have a sibling. :)

Jordan just woke up from his nap, so I am going to go hang out with my boy!
