Happy day, ya’ll!
That’s right! A baby is on the way! We are soooo very excited for a new addition to our family!
I’m almost 14 weeks along, so we have another 6 months to go. My due date is April 17th. I’m so excited that the Lord has called me to be a mom, a parent alongside my husband, and to bring this baby into the world. I am already getting excited to meet this little one, even though it’s months away!
If I’ve seemed kind of spare on the blog-front lately, this is why. I have actually had a pretty good pregnancy so far – mostly just super exhausted and a little nauseous, but not getting sick. It’s been pretty hard to be “present” here when so much else was going on in real life that I wasn’t talking about online. But now it’s out! And it feels so good.
We announced to my mom in person when she was out last weekend. We sent my in-laws a wedding scrapbook that I always wanted to make them and the announcement photo was the last page. And I just emailed the announcement to the rest of family. They were all very surprised & happy. We made it “Facebook official” yesterday, so pretty much everybody knows.
Since everyone seems to come up with “pet names” for their baby beforehand, I think I’m going to go with Baby Bee or Baby Honey Bee for now. I decided to go with bees for the announcement when I found that adorable Burt’s Bee’s onsie, and since this will be a spring baby, I thought it was fitting. So #BabyBee2015 it is!
I just wanted to pop in real quick to let you know. Thank you to all who have already congratulated us. We are feeling very loved!
Stay tuned for a first trimester update later in the week!
