Happy New Year!

I can't believe 2012 is over and behind us. It seems like yesterday that I was making my resolutions (which I didn't keep... at all... only reinforcing my belief that they are dumb :)


How are you celebrating tonight? M and I are headed out to a party. I don't know if I will be able to stay awake till midnight though... We might have to kiss at 10:00 p.m. instead.


Wishing you all the best in 2013!
Love,

22 Weeks

I am currently 23 weeks, but I realized I never posted my 22 week photo. I am trying to stay on top of it, since I know you all want to see me get huger and huger :)


Baby Girl has officially past the one pound mark! We can feel her kicking (which she does OFTEN), especially at night and in the early morning. I feel like I can already tell what her sleeping pattern is going to be... yikes. 

Now that the holidays are over, we are going to have our hands full getting the nursery ready and signing up for all our fun classes. I feel like the days and weeks and months until she arrives are going to fly. I am so excited to meet this little girl. Her presence is certainly going to change our lives!

A Belated Merry Christmas!

Hope you all had a very Merry Christmas! We spent the holidays back in Georgia with our families. It was wonderful to see them! Yesterday, we came home to a snowy Colorado. Everything is covered in a fresh blanket of white. Sadie and Georgia had a grand old time frolicking today :)


We hope your holiday was merry and bright! 
Love,
l&m

Happy Anniversary

This morning, I woke up to snow falling and M cooking me breakfast for our anniversary. I feel like the luckiest girl in the world.


Three years ago today, I married my best friend. So much has happened since then, but when I think back on that day, I still remember how I felt, so calm and filled with anticipation. I will never forget walking down the aisle towards my beloved, seeing the look on his face.

Husband,
I love you with all my heart. The past three years have been a great adventure, and I can't wait for a lifetime more. I can't believe how well you put up with me :) 
Love,
Your Undeserving Wife

We're Having a...


girl!!!

We are beyond excited... though I can't believe how completely wrong I was! I was convinced we were having a boy. But little girls are fun. Especially first little girls. I was a first little girl, so I happen to know all about it :)

We have a few names picked out, but I don't want to make an official decision until I meet her.

P.S. The little dress pictured above is our little Christmas gift to Baby Girl. We hope she can wear it home from the hospital, though it might swallow her up if she's especially tiny :)

20 weeks

We made it! 20 weeks! The halfway mark... I seriously can't believe it.

{Our Christmas tree! And my belly...}

Our baby now weighs almost a pound! At our last ultrasound, we were able to see how everything is developing. Little Bean looks perfect! We were also able to find out the baby's sex... but that's another post for another time :)

Happy Weekend!

Holiday Recap

We made it home from our travels in one piece! I still can't believe we drove all the way to Georgia from Colorado. We must be crazy.

Hope you all had a marvelous Thanksgiving holiday! We certainly did. We celebrated with our families in Atlanta. Lots of food was consumed. After a wonderful visit with M's family, we headed to Athens for my mom's birthday and my brother's CD release. We also made a trip to the Christmas tree farm...


If you look closely, you can see a little baby bump... :)


My brother and M looking thrilled to be posing for my pictures...


We took our tree home in the old family truck... Does it look familiar? That's because it made an appearance at our wedding


Ta da! The finished product!

We had such a wonderful time with our families and friends! As much as we enjoyed our visit, it feels good to be back in Colorado. The first thing we did when we got home was to pick out our own Christmas tree and decorate our house for Christmas. I love the smell of pine needles every time I walk through the front door. Now if you will excuse me, I have some presents to wrap :)
