Whew! Such a relief to get that off our chests! Three and a half months is a looooooooooooong time to keep something so big a secret, especially when we live with my sister and brother-in-law, and work with my Dad, brother-in-law, cousin, and brother, and spend so much time at my parents and in-laws (next time remind us not to wait so long!) But, we wanted to make sure everything looked good at our first ultrasound appointment and our Doc doesn’t like to see his patients until 10-12 weeks and by that time it was already 10 days until Christmas! I’ve never felt so weird to tell people (still getting over the fact that me (a kid) can be having a kid!!), so if this is how you’re finding out, consider it a personal, heart-felt announcement from us! We are definitely happy and excited, but scared and nervous all at the same time. I think we’re a little crazy not having Cam graduated yet, but I have to trust there’s a way and it’ll all work out (okay, I worry a lot but I can’t help it, I’m a planner (hence my 5 year until kids plan that obviously fell through!) and may or may not have a little OCD! ha). We know it’s the right thing to do, the right timing, and it does feel good! Bless Cam’s heart, he’s been the sweetest, most patient husband I could ask for (despite my constant complaints of being sick and lots of tearful nights being a little unsure of what and how I feel–hopefully it’s just the hormones because I feel like I’m having a personality change and I don’t like it! anyone else sympathize?!) So grateful I have him! Now, if somebody can just help me through the realization that there’s only one way to deliver this baby and it all causes pain…ahh!
Here’s some fun shots from our photo shoot with my sister Natalie (little did she know then what I was REALLY going to do with her pictures!) haha Thanks Nat! And, I definitely recommend a confetti shoot sometime in your life–so fun!
