A long, long time

Well, it's been almost 2 years!  No big deal.

A lot has happened since I've been here last.  We moved to Minnesota, I started residency, I considered leaving residency (for emergency medicine), and I decided to stay in my OB Gyn residency.  Overall, it's been a big 2 years.

For now, though, let's just jump to the present.   Kendall has us wrapped around her little fingers.  She's walking and talking and constantly cracking us up.  She's gorgeous and perfect, and she reminds me everyday of why I ever wanted to be a mother.  I know this is what every parent feels, but it still shocks me every day.

I love what I do.  I love obstetrics.  I only want to do obstetrics, and will probably try to do maternal fetal medicine to that end.  We love Minnesota (shocking, yes?) and we love the life we're building here.

Overall, it's been a really great 2 years.  Bumps, yes.  Long hours, yes.  Constant inadequacy, of course.  All I can say is I've learned so much, and have met such amazing people to help me become a better physician.

I'll try to update more frequently than biennially, and will hopefully update you on when we'll be making visits back to Colorado or other parts of the country.  Just letting you all know we're still alive!
