Big News!!


S and I are excited to annouce that we are expecting! We're so excited! It really is a dream come true for both of us - and we are overjoyed that God has blessed us this way.

Our due date is September 3rd - Labor Day, appropriately! (Does God have a sense of humor of what??) That means that as of today, I am 9 weeks along.

Our little bundle of joy is about the size of a prune today, but not nearly as wrinkled! He or she is really starting to take shape - bones and cartilage are forming, and small indentations on the legs are becoming knees and ankles. The arms, complete with elbows, can flex already! Plus, the tooth bud fairy has arrived and his or her little teeth are forming too!

As of now, we aren't planning on finding out the gender of the baby - all we want is a happy, healthy baby, and the gender truly won't matter. Plus, it'll be an exciting surprise for Steven to announce to our gathered family after Baby arrives!

How am I feeling? Well - not so hot. I have been experiencing the fabulous rite of passage known as morning sickness...or as I have come to know it, all day and night sickness. It's more of a lingering nausea than actual sickness, coupled with exhaustion like I have never known (which is saying a lot since I get up so early for work!).

That being said, I wouldn't trade it for the world. Anyone that knows me knows that I've wanted to be a mom for my entire life, and I just know that S is going to be a fantastic father. We are truly blessed and couldn't wait to share this with you!
