The News is Public Now...

After flying home last weekend to tell our parents and close family members the news, which had been a secret since January 11, the news can now be public.

Yes, Joshy and I are expecting our first child in September. I will be joining the Mommy-hood club! We are super excited. I'm kind of surprised that we were able to keep it a secret for so long, and man was it HARD! I wanted so badly to tell my mom, but we both decided it would be so much better to surprise them in person, and it turned out great!

It was kind of neat to have our own little secret for a while too. We both were able to soak in the excitement for a while just the two of us. I had written a little blurb on blogger, but saved it as a draft, of the day we found out and the next couple of days or so, just documenting how it all felt and went.

I love reading other blogs of women who are pregnant and now realizing how it will affect ME down the road. I love those! I can now say that as of yesterday (the 26th) I am 11 weeks along. We are due Sept 15. Hard to believe I'm already almost 3 months pregnant?!?!?! Wow, when you say it out loud like that it is a bit strange. I'm so excited to experience pregnancy and become a mom. My sister in law Steph is 7 weeks ahead of me with her second child, so I will have someone to be pregnant with.

I'll start posting stats and questions and pictures soon enough. We're so excited to talk to everyone about it now. I know, it's been a secret for a while, but it was just because we had to fly out to Colorado to tell everyone.

Have a wonderful Sunday!
