Coming May 2013!!!!!!!

Hellooooo, long lost bloggy friends!! I am alive!
I am back with some BIG news to share with you......
 
My hubby and I are expecting our very first baby!!!  Coming May 2013 :) Whohoooooo!!
 
Say Hi to Baby C :)
(this was taken on 9/21/12 @ 6 weeks and 3 days)
 
 
We had planned on waiting until after our 10 week appt to make the official announcement but several things made us decide to tell sooner...
 
- We have both done a terrible job at keeping it a secret.  We told family and closest friends a couple weekends ago, but even since then we both have told quite a few more people than we ever planned. 
- I have been pretty sick most days and practically fall asleep at my desk sometimes, so it was getting harder and harder to hide it, especially at work.
-  We heard our baby's heartbeat at 6 weeks and 3 days and our doctor said that once you hear the heartbeat, the risk of miscarriage is less than 3%.
 
So, now here we are.  I will be 8 weeks tomorrow. 
And let me tell you, making the big announcement today has been the best decision.  I feel a HUGE weight lifted off my shoulders and I have been filled with so much happiness :) 
 
Thank you to everyone for your sweet comments, emails, texts and phone calls!  What a great way to start October!!
 
Now, I will leave you with some of our favorite pictures from our announcement session with the amazing, Kaleigh Karin Photography!  
(If you live in the Houston area and need a photographer, you really should check her out...she is the best!!)

Congrats again!! I think I need to see your doctor. lol We heard the heartbeat at 12 weeks because she said it was too early at 6 weeks to hear anything but we did see the little flutters at 8 weeks on the screen. :)
