First. Came. Love.

Then we got married. 

So, that means you know what comes next, right

Yes, that's right.  Geoff and I are expecting a little bundle of joy!  And we couldn't think of a better day to share the news than Easter.  On this beautiful day where we remember the sacrifice the Lord made that we may all have eternal life, I can think of nothing better than to have the opportunity to share with you that we get to start our family. 

Here are the "stats" for anyone wondering.  The little one is due November 14th, 2011, which means I am just starting my 12th week of pregnancy.  This makes him or her about the size of a fig and they no longer look like a shrimp, but nearly a person with arms and legs and eyes, ears, mouth and nose.    

Last week Geoff and I had the opportunity to take our first peek at baby Parker, and s/he was perfect.  His or her heartbeat was the greatest sound I've ever heard and we even got to see the little one bouncing around a bit and wiggling its teeny tiny legs. 
I'm doing great so far.  I have had little to no morning sickness, some fatigue, and a few mood swings (although Geoff may feel like that's no different...), and some days where giving up my beloved Diet Mountain Dew and Ibuprofen has been rough, but overall I've felt great.  I hope to be able to say that 6 months from now as well! 

Needless to say, this is why I haven't been a great blogger as of late.  It's hard to blog when you've got something on your mind that you aren't talking about. 

Happy Easter!
