Kind of big news...

Yep, we're having a baby! It still sounds a little strange for me to say it. Don't get me wrong, we are both beyond thrilled. It's just such a happy, amazing and wonderful time. After 12 years of it just being the two of us, we will soon be a family of three. I used to wonder constantly, "Is there really a baby in there?" But now I feel the evidence of it. I feel the somersaults and whatever else the little one is doing in there. They started out as tickles and flutters, but now has started feeling more like kicks and jabs. It is plenty of proof that there is someone living in there and not just gas.

Here is my baby bump picture at 24 weeks, just a little over six months.

Next time I won't wear red up against a red background, but I think you can still tell enough from this picture.

We found out the gender on Valentines Day. The best Valentines Day of my life. We called parents and then friends to tell them the exciting news, but for work I wanted to do something special. I was going to make cupcakes colored with food coloring and covered in white frosting, but I decided to go with something a little different. I made cake bites dipped in chocolate so you couldn't see the inside. I meant to take a picture of one sliced open, but I totally forgot. So the big reveal was blue inside! We are having a boy! Thank you God for this new blessing that has come into our lives!
