We're....



Baby Ireland is due on October 25!!! Chris and I are absolutely thrilled and are so excited to finally share our news with you all. I will be 13 weeks tomorrow- I can't believe it! I found out that I was pregnant on February 25th and had to wait ALLLLL day for Chris to get home from work so that I could tell him the amazing news. I spent the afternoon trying to come up with a creative way to tell him and this is what I came up with....

Every day when Chris gets home from work Bailey will greet him at the door. On this particular day she greeted him in her new t-shirt (which she HATES, by the way).He was speechless for a minute then immediately picked me up and gave me a huge hug! It is so sweet watching him get so excited about our little one.
We went for our first ultrasound during my 11th week and were able to see the little arms and legs and hear the heartbeat, which was 165. What an incredible experience. I don't even know what Chris' facial expressions were throughout the sonogram because I was so entranced with the image of our little baby on the screen. I seriously didn't look away from the screen once- not even to look at the doctor as she was talking to us. Seeing Baby Ireland for the first time was amazing and we are so thankful for the God's blessing to us. We go for our next OB appointment on May 5th and then on June 2nd we will find out whether Baby Ireland is a boy or a girl!
Please pray for us as we prepare to become parents and also for the development of our sweet little baby. I am now through the first trimester but and still nauseous, so please pray that I will begin to have more energy and less sickness in the next few weeks!
