Adam & I are beyond thrilled to announce that Baby C is finally on their way! We had been wishing and hoping for our first bundle of joy for some time now and, especially after the winter our family has had..we needed this little miracle in our lives to prove to us that life is good again. Baby Bun will be making their debut in January 2014 and is very, very special to all of us. Not only are they our very first baby, they are the first grandbaby on both sides of our families..making this an extraordinary time for our families.
I found out on May 3rd that we were going to have our baby, and I have been glowing ever since. At first, I didn't believe it..I always wondered what my initial reaction would be to finding out I was expecting, and I didn't disappoint! Immediately I started bawling...tears of happiness streamed down my face and I started talking to my Daddio saying "we did it, dad..you're going to be a grandpa" It was truly a special moment I will never, ever forget.
Fast forward to the end of June and Adam & I heard Baby Bun's heartbeat at the doctors office for the very first time. The minute that "woosh woosh" sound could be heard, I started crying..again. It was the most beautiful sound I had ever heard in my life. Things became real..there is a life inside of me and I just heard the proof! The following week we had our first ultrasound and I was able to witness my baby jumping and kicking inside of me. I couldn't look away...it was the most maternal moment I had ever experienced. I'm forming a life. A combination of my husband and myself. How do you explain the joy that comes with that?
My first trimester was not the easiest but I definitely am not complaining..its a gift and a joy to be expecting a child and I won't ever take it for granted. I am now almost in my 17th week and starting to slowly feel somewhat normal again, minus the growing bump I have begun to notice in front of me ;)
In my 16th week :)
So here we go..on our journey to becoming first time parents. We have decided to find out the gender of our little bundle of joy and are anxiously waiting for another month til we can see our little one again on the computer screen and find out if we are team pink or blue. I'm so excited to finally announce our news to the world..in a small way, it makes this journey even more exciting than it already is!
