Welcome to My Family

I've been wanting to write for a while, since I have been pregnant. Pregnancy is such a roller coaster ride of emotions and sometimes a bit of venting or gushing about my happiness is a necessity. But a little background is needed before one can make any sense of my ramblings.

I am Tabitha and I am a 20 year old student at the University of Oregon. I love school and I am a Spanish major. I am also a member of the UO Marching Band. I play clarinet in the band, but I love playing so many different instruments. I also work full time as a care provider for people who have developmental disabilities. Some days I love my job and some I hate it. I bet most people feel the same about their job. I have a really busy life, but I am learning to slow down and take some time for my self and my family.

 This is my boyfriend James. He's a pretty great guy. He's not perfect, but he's perfect for me. We do occasionally have our problems, but we always manage to work things out. We have been together since July of 2007 and we are still going strong. James is also a student at the UO. He is a business major and is expecting to graduate this coming up June.

"We" are about to be 16 weeks pregnant on Wednesday and becoming parents is a big adventure for us as it is a first child for us both. We're pretty excited, but still a little scared.

This blog is meant for me to be a way to talk endlessly about myself and my family and not feel like I am bragging or being overwhelmingly self centered. I have the need to express how important we all are.


  1. As a father of the author, I am a proud father indeed. Tabitha has come along way in her life and with this little suprise, she has adapted very well in her life and responsibilities.

  2. Good! I'm glad you're doing this! Big hugs! ~Jamie
