***End of 2018 Updates!***

Morning drop off with Mommy!
Friends...I cannot believe it is December. This last quarter of the year is not playing games. What in the world?!

Fellowship is still AH-MAZ-ING. 

Since my last post, I spent the month of October on Labor and Delivery. And although it was crazy busy - per usual, I managed to learn a ton and not surprisingly, loved being with the residents and other fellows (i.e. my friends xo)

Halloween 2018 on L&D

On October 14th My babies got baptized (!!!)

My co-fellow Annie and I went to an awesome conference in Chicago for all the first year MFM fellows around the country. I even got to sneak in some time with my parents and bros. 

And in October we even managed to make it to our first North Carolina State Fair! #FriedOreos

November was also quite a month for me and my crew...

At work, I completed my first ultrasound rotation of fellowship. A Maternal-Fetal Medicine doctor is responsible for making complicated fetal diagnosis and performing procedures by ultrasound (cordocensis, amniocentesis, and fetal reduction just to name a few), so these were the first steps in honing my craft. 🤓

Every Monday morning, I still had my regular continuity clinic with prenatal patients. And then in the afternoon, after our scheduled teaching, I was responsible for presenting complex fetal cases to the joint Maternal-Fetal Medicine + Neonatology conference. This was a huge change from my ultrasound rotation as an intern #GlowUp

Natey started hockey lessons (!!!) and presented in his first class culmination project on water quality last week. 

Isabelle is learning to read (!!!) 

Our family budget is well underway (we have been really diligent since July), and because things are going so well AND I had more than one day off around Thanksgiving, we were able to FLY home to my parents' in Indiana!! It was the best getaway I have had in a loooong time and it didn't involve the longest car ride ever :praise Him:

Speaking of the November we were also able to take the kids to go see Hamilton while it was in Durham! They love the soundtrack and are HUGE fans. This was something that I have been dreaming of doing for them since I saw it two years ago, but I never would have dreamed that we could afford it. Thanks to StubHub we got awesome seats at an awesome price. 

It was even more amazing to watch it with them #YoungScrappyAndHungry

But I also understand now why children usually aren't taken to Broadway plays...#IsabelleCouldntHang #TheKidsHadSoMuchCommentary

Isabelle couldn't hang by Act II -_-

So SO thankful for all of the wonderful blessings this year. 

Hope you all are able to take some time to slow down in this last month of 2018 in order to focus on what is most important.
