There's some exciting stuff going on at our home these days...we're getting ready for a baby! That's right, we're expecting our first baby in April! Throughout the last two months we've slowly been breaking the news to family, friends, and co-workers so it seemed like it was finally time to make the announcement to the masses.
Of course the first people we told were our parents. We told my parents over a game of Scrabble, which is a family favorite game to play together.
Our first ultrasound of the baby made me say, "we're having a gummy bear!" since the ultrasound looked less like a baby and more like a little gummy bear in my belly. So, for about the first month we called the baby our gummy bear. It was fitting when I saw this huge gummy bear at a store in the mall to take a picture of it with my "gummy bear".
And just this week we found out that we're having a girl! It felt like Christmas that day being able to see an ultrasound of a cute little baby and finding out we're going to have a little girl this Spring! Our pictures for our Christmas cards this year catch our growing baby girl (aka my growing belly).
So, that's a little update on the big change that is going on with our family as well as the reason I've been slacking a little with blogging in the past couple of months!
