We’re having a baby!!! Whew, it feels good to finally share that with the world.
Over the last few months I’ve been filled with so many emotions. Excitement for the growth of our family, love for this baby, exhaustion from morning sickness, and planning like crazy for the journey ahead. Times of change are surely ahead, but I am confident it will all be changes for the best.
We’re having a baby!
Our bundle of joy is due early February, which couldn’t be better because it coincides with my slow season. This means my 2017 wedding season will be uninterrupted, and I’ll be booking lifestyle and wedding shoots as usual – yay!
Over the weekend we gathered with close family and friends to find out what we are having. I’ve been so anxious to find out the gender of our baby! I’ve had dreams, mothers intuition, and lots of conversations about it with John. We were both certain we were having a boy, but as the reveal got closer I started to doubt my feelings. What if we are having a girl? What did all those dreams mean?
For the reveal we decided to make ice cream cookie sandwiches, one with pink ice cream and one with blue. I absolutely love John’s reaction as we found out we are having a BOY!! So much relief that our intuitions were correct, and share this moment with our family and friends was so much fun.
This little baby has already brought so much joy into our lives, and the outpouring of love and support has been amazing! Special thanks to Brandi Welles for snapping these photos, and to all our family, friends, and my couples for the words of encouragement and genuine excitement for our growing family – we love you!
