Welcoming Baby Numero Uno!

So we have some exciting news...WE'RE GONNA HAVE A BABY!! :D

We found out the weekend right after finals that I was pregnant (definitely a tender mercy that I wasn't feeling sick during the week of finals) and since then I've been sicker than a dog just about every morning. Usually after my daily throw up (sorry if that's TMI) my day is pretty normal unless I smell something too strong/weird (i.e. heavily seasoned meat) or if I let my stomach get too empty. We'll be having our first little one join our family near the end of July or beginning of August. I'm sure they'll come whenever they're ready. :)


We waited a while to tell everyone just so that we could be sure that things were going good and so that the chances of a miscarriage were a little more slim, but the excitement was just killing us so while we were in Texas we had my wonderful friend Savanna take a fun picture for us that we used to tell our family we're having a baby. 

The look on Cole's face when I showed these to him were priceless! The only reason there are 2 of them is because he made me take another one "just to be sure." :)


Last Friday, the 11th, we went to the first appointment where we were able to hear the cutest little heartbeat! It was so crazy and made it all seem more real that our little baby is growing inside of me...what a miraculous thing a woman's body can do!


As of today I am officially 12 weeks and still don't have much of a baby bump, but I am starting to get a little bit of a belly! We'll be doing a fun little picture project to see how I go from 3 to 6 to 9 months and then with our little one finally in our arms. Be on the lookout for that in the months to come!
