Something Exciting...

We are very excited to announce...

... that we are going to have a baby! That's right - M and I are going to be parents. We've been waiting to share the news with you, and believe me, it has been hard to keep this secret for so long!

No, we don't know the baby's sex yet. But I call him a "he" for now, because 1) I have a feeling that this baby really is a "he", and 2) I don't like calling our baby an "it". If it turns out to be a girl, she might have a slight complex after being referred to as a "he" for so long. Oh well. 

I have one more week in my first trimester. So far, pregnancy symptoms haven't been too bad. I'll talk more about those in another post. For now, we are just over-the-moon excited and so thankful that the baby is healthy! At my doctor's appointment today, we got to hear the heartbeat. There is really no way to describe that experience. I was not expecting to be so overwhelmed with emotions. Then again, I have raging pregnancy hormones, so I shouldn't have been too surprised when I started crying! 

The baby's heartbeat and measurements all look great! Apparently, he is very active. During the ultrasound, he was jumping up and down and doing somersaults. He also likes to suck his thumb a lot, which he does pretty much whenever he's still. 

We are obviously overjoyed and can't wait to start this new chapter of our lives! We would appreciate your prayers that this baby would continue to grow strong and healthy, and that I would not kill Morgan for some minor offense, like leaving smelly dishes in the sink. 

Thanks for letting us share our big news! We are so thankful for all the love and support we have in our lives.
