Party of Three





First, we fell in love.

Then, you know, we got married.

And now, well...

Stephen and I are thrilled to announce that we are bringing a little one into the world on October 19, 2013!

Let's all give a resounding girl squeal: EEEEEEEEP!

We decided in January that we wanted to start a family and, just weeks later, found out I was pregnant! Honestly, we were a little surprised (but a LOT happy) that it happened so quickly. Stephen jokes that it’s because we are classic over achievers : )

Right now, I’m right at 12 weeks and things are perfect! The baby looked wonderful on the ultrasound and had a good strong heart rhythm at 176 bpm! 

This probably won’t turn into a baby-centered blog, but I do plan to post the occasional bump photo and a few fun details as we find out the gender in a few weeks. And yes, I’ll still be outfit blogging : ) Please, child. Did you really think pregnancy would keep me outta the game? ; ) With bloggers like Sydney and Monika as my inspiration, I’m completely game for some preggy outfit pics.

All sickness aside, I feel SO blessed that God has blessed us with this baby. We pray daily for guidance from Him as we begin this exciting journey. I’m so excited to be a MOM. 

Mom. That's got a pretty great ring to it, doesn't it?

Be truly glad. There is wonderful joy ahead!

    Little confession - I found your blog through Kelly's Korner and your story about waiting and trusting God with a husband for you has been such an inspiration to me as I travel a similar journey. This just helps boost my faith even more. :)
