Happy Wednesday Blog World! I cannot believe it's been 4 months since my last post! Maybe once I explain how the last 4 months have gone, you'll understand...
...Let's go back a ways:
The last time I blogged, Christmas was fast approaching, I was just starting a new job and it seemed like once January hit, we'd be able to relax for a while...yeah, that didn't happen..at all.
To save you from a long blog post of playing catch up, I wanted to include a lot of pictures to recap since December.
First of all, Christmas was great! Andrew battled a nasty cold almost the entire time, but we had such a great time with all of his family, as well as most of mine (still missed the parents and brother!) We took lots of pictures, made lots of great memories, and really enjoyed ourselves. Andrew and I even brought Macy along for our week long stay in Houston. I get most people might bring their dog, but not a cat, but she's our baby and a week was just too long to leave her! She had a great time at my grandma's house and my family fell in love with her on Christmas Day when everyone came over. Here's some pictures to recap our wonderful Christmas!

Ok that all was all pretty standard Christmas fun and great memories! Well, this is where the craziness begins...it was the Friday before New Years (December 30th) and my sister in law were chatting in my in-laws living room, the rest of the girls (sis in laws and mother in law) were throughout the house, the nephews were playing, and the guys were helping their grandma with a project at her house...my sister in law and I were both joking about how we were "late". I figured it was no big deal for me because of my low-ish body weight and the fact that I workout so much. On the fly and because we were kind of bored, we decided it would be fun to go get some pregnancy tests and ice cream (thinking it was PMS and why not?)...so we did...we got home, she took her test, said "I'm good! You're turn" and I took my test...
Next thing I know, I'm shaking slightly from nerves (thought that was weird) and my stick...didn't look like hers...yep! that's right! within minutes there was shock, hugs, and screaming! The boys came home shortly after, and all the sudden, his whole family new and we were still blown away!
Of course, me being well, me...I took like 5 tests that weekend just to make sure and I even got to tell my mom in person because she was in town visiting for New Year's!
|This is one of the positive tests that I took at a local pregnancy clinic when we got home!|
|Here's our peanut at 8 weeks!|
Since then, it seems like life has been full of craziness! We celebrated our 2 year anniversary just a week later!
|Celebrated with sparkling cider ;)|
In February when my mom came back to visit, we did an ultrasound with her good friend who works at a pregnancy clinic, our baby looked great at 12 weeks and my mom's friend even had a gender prediction! We posted this pictures on FB shortly after, to finally announce it to everyone else!
|I love the BLUE and PINK we had going on!|
|Such a proud dad already!|
Fast forwarding, in mid-March my mom's friend did another one and showed us our baby's "parts", but we decided not to announce it until our doctor also confirmed it, which she did just 3 weeks later! So....we're having...
|Here's Macy with her sister's first shoes!!|
|We bought her first Aggie jacket last weekend!|
I can't believe I didn't update on the blog sooner, but I was just pure WIPED OUT the first trimester! Grace of God I didn't deal with sickness or anything, just feeling VERY tired! I did get one stomach virus which I'm hoping means I've paid my sickness dues, because that was aweful!
Now I'm into my 2nd trimester and will be 20 weeks tomorrow! My belly has alos just now started to show, so I haven't taken many pictures of myself either. Now that you have all been updated, I will update reguarly throughout the rest of this journey and it is only going to get more exciting!
Thanks for catching up with me! I hope y'all enjoyed the pictures! Coming soon: a blog on our babymoon/my birthday weekend getaway/ Easter!
Thanks for reading!
