Tides are the rise and fall of sea levels caused by the combined effects of the gravitational forces exerted by the Moon and the Sun and the rotation of the Earth. In and out of high tides, the past year has been adventures flip flopped with an idea of routine. Trying to settle on an idea of a routine life I discover consciously that routine is anywhere but where I am going . With high tide comes routine and with the low comes the adventure and the hustle and the bustle.
I am again pregnant.
Nervous, it feels different the second time around. Like you know what to expect, but still with a twinge of mystery. Will it be another boy? How do I stay healthy? Can I work out? Can I surf? Can I do my new job? Which is an entire other subject. And yeah already I am in my first or second month and impatient as hell, I already want to push the little bugg into the world, hold him in my arms and get him started on his way.
Lasse is almost 5. I can’t believe it. Just when he is gaining a huge sense of independence a new baby. Lasse is giddy with emotion. He sat through and entire video about the stages of pregnancy. So I think he knows we have a bit of a wait. He has been waiting now for what seems like years, so what’s a little longer. That’s the feeling I get from him.
I forget most of the time that there is actually a little guy inside me starting out. So crazy. Emotional. I have been trying to eat really natural but already craving food and having munchies all the time. I can’t wait to be around my husband again to share the beauty and magic of our new life. I need his inspiration. I crave his kiss and his love. This winter is going to be a whirlwind, and maybe that is a good thing to get through this long, long, long, long, long, long, long, long, long, (9 MONTHS!!) wait.
I am working in Denver. Lasse and Federico will be in Vail. But we are going to do everything to make this venture amazing. This is a dream for me. I can go into mega details about the job, but I won’t. Not now. Let’s wait until the ride begins. I couldn’t have stepped into a better stage for my career as a skier. I love kids, to help them become better athletes, inspired to live and to dream, what a blessing.
It goes on.
