8 Weeks & Weekend!

Wow! Thank you for your overwhelming happy response to our exciting news! We are thrilled and thank God everyday for this sweet blessing. The tired-ness, little nausea and often bathroom usage are SO worth it! Every minute of it....

We are 8 weeks along and it is so fun! I found out super, super early and it has been so hard keeping a secret for this long. Yikes! I am going to do the little bump-dates, but not every week.

Here's my 8 week bumpdate:
 
Size of baby:  Kidney Bean! Teeny, Tiny!
Symptoms: EXTRA tired, often potty breaks & nausea mostly in the car. Not too bad!

Cravings: Ha... taco's were a big one last week. I just can't stand looking at raw meat and then eating it after it's cooked. Weird, butttt... trying to get past it.

Something you Miss: Mmm... not much... probably staying up past 9!

Milestones: Telling the "world" our news. What a freeing thing! No more secret!!

Looking Forward To: I have an appointment tomorrow! I love learning more about my pregnancy!

We had a fun celebration this weekend for all the August birthdays in our families! SO fun!


Laura, Nana, Joshy & Liv.... it is all of their birthdays THIS month! So fun!



My handsome hubby turns 23 next week!!!

Fun, fun weekend... no wedding which was nice to have a little break from it for a bit. :) We went to an awesome production at our church that the youth put on... AMAZING! God is moving in this generation, how cool to see it!! Blessings this week to you all....

I love the sticker for your belly - cute! So exciting! I couldn't stand chicken for the same reason when I was pregnant - thinking about it being raw ans then eating it just made me want to throw up! Glad it's not too bad though.

you're adorable :)
i could not handle raw meat in the beginning of my pregnancy either. i was basically a vegetarian for a few months...i think that's a pretty normal symptom :)

Telling everyone was the best! It was hard keeping a secret! And hold on through the fatigue- the second trimester is so much better :)
