It's a bird...it's a plane...no...it's a....

Baby! Yes, that's right, Andrew and I are going to have a baby! Most of you reading this probably already know, but I thought that now that the announcement is mostly out there for people to know that it's time I start posting on here about it. :) I was 13 weeks yesterday, so I'm almost in the second trimester. I'm due August 6th--really close to our nieces Julia and Eliana's birthdays (the 7th and the 4th), so maybe there will be some double birthdays going on. Someday I might post on here all the happenings up till now, mostly as a record for me. I was keeping a pregnancy journal for the first couple weeks, but now that I can talk to my family about it, I haven't written in it since then. Mostly I've just been feeling really tired and nauseous on and off again, and really really hungry! :) We made the announcement to our families on Christmas Day (8 weeks), but we've been pretty slow to tell anyone else since then. I have my second doctor's appointment on Monday, so we'll see how that goes. Until we get a picture of our baby (besides the one we got at 6 weeks that just looks like a little peanut...) this will have to do. I'm sure our baby will be cuter though. :) And hopefully now that I'm feeling a little better and might actually have some things to say now that I'm going to be talking about my baby, I'll actually post on here more than every 6 weeks.

Yay! I'm so glad you finally posted this. Every time I commented on your blog, it almost slipped out but then I would remember that you hadn't actually posted about it yet and I didn't want to give away anything if it was still on the DL! I'm glad it's all out in the open for sure now! haha

So, when are you going to post about my new niece/nephew? I think you're going to have a boy...so I can give you some baby clothes! Ha!! But, if you have a girl, that's ok, too. Let us know when you find out if it's a boy or a girl, and I'll tell you what you should name it! ha! (Like Chester Dexter...that one is still up for grabs, ya know?)
