...and baby makes three


i've been DYING since the day i found out to write this post.
i'm pregnant with our first baby, due july 4th, 2012...
and we couldn't be happier.

i'm 10, almost 11 weeks now.
we had our first appointment this last friday and baby is happy and healthy thus far.

we find out the gender on jan 5th.

being pregnant has been an immediate adjustment...
between being ridiculously sick + the major bouts of fatigue.
but it's worth every second of it.
[which also explains my lack of online presence]



i don't think there is anything more scary than the thought of becoming a mother.
you made this little life + now it's up to you to teach it everything.
to protect it.
to love it.

i'm terrified...
but in the same breath,
can't wait.

i'm excited to watch my husband become a father.
i'm excited to be our own little family.
i'm excited for all the amazing grandparents + aunts + uncles + cousins our little one will have.

we really couldn't be in a better place.



we really couldn't be any happier.




and to my little baby...
your heartbeat is my favorite song.

So amazing! Congrats to you and your family!! Having a child is the best thing ever. It's crazy how much they change your life and how much they teach you things you've never known about yourself.
I hope you feel better! I was so sick when I was pregnant too. Ugh, I remember how horrible it felt.

Liz Brown said...

Congratulations!! I love babies and hearing and reading about all things baby :) I think I'll follow your blog to keep up on all the baby stuff!

And I laughed when I read your 'about me'. My name is Elizabeth and I have all those same nicknames. I have often thought how awesome it would be to become Elizabeth Bennet :D

Tiffany said...

I'm late to the party, but still want to say congratulations! You're in for a wonderful ride.

Michelle said...

I know this post is a little older... so not sure if you'll see this. But firstly, congratulations! What a special time for you and your loved ones! And secondly, July 4th is the best due date ever! My birthday is on the 4th of July! I also share it with my sister, but she's 12 years older than me... it's kinda crazy how that happened! But really, it's the best day to have a bday... :) But no matter if your little guy is born a few days earlier or later than that... it will forever be the best time of the year!
