And baby makes THREE!

Yep. You read it. Coco and I are expecting our own little bundle of joy July 1st! We feel so blessed (and scared!) to become parents. Needless to say we are VERY excited and cannot wait to meet our little one. I am about 17 weeks now and all looks good so far. Hopefully this announcement will help explain my absence from the blogosphere for the past few months. While I have felt really good (thank you Lord for no nausea or "morning sickness"), I have been plagued by exhaustion (I know many fellow mommies to be can relate). Up until about a week ago there weren't too many nights I would make it past 8 pm (Coco says even that is generous!). Since I work full time and my blogging only happens at night it was the first to go in exchange for a snuggly spot on the couch right next to Lucy. :) I feel I am turning the corner on the tiredness so back to blogging work!

Coco and I are major planners so I will keep you posted on all things baby that are happening at our house. The next big milestone will be our 20 week ultrasound when we will make sure our little one is growing in all the right ways and we will find out if we need to start purchasing footballs or tutus! Any guesses?

Below is a picture of our first ultrasound where we heard the beautiful sound of our baby's heartbeat. It is an amazing thing and something I look forward to at EVERY appointment. (So sorry for the poor picture quality - it was taken with my Crackberry :))


I am so glad ya'll will be around to join us on this adventure! We covet your prayers for our growing family!
