I'm Going To Be A.......

MOMMY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am overjoyed to announce that Edward and I will be welcoming our first child in August! We can not wait to meet our precious little one and are already so in love!

We were trying to wait until he finished law school but God had other plans for us. And we couldn't be happier :) Let me tell you, God is GOOD! Even though we didn't "plan" this pregnancy, the baby will actually be coming at the perfect time. Speaking of "timing", we found out Christmas morning that I was pregnant. Our little miracle is the greatest present we could have ever asked for. 

I am now 12 weeks and the Doctor said that everything has been perfect so far. What a blessing!! 
After an excellent ultrasound at 10 weeks 5 days, we decided to announce our news to our friends last weekend, which happened to also be Mardi Gras. A special thanks to Fleurty Girl for providing the perfect t-shirt to surprise everyone!
Meet Baby B! (Aka Poppy! When we found out I was pregnant, our baby was just the size of a poppyseed... hence the nickname which has stuck around.)

Happy Friday everyone!!!!!!!!
