plus one.

There are moments in life that are so sweet and wonderful that they simply take your breath away. The excitement, the reality, and the overwhelming happiness of what is happening {or yet to come}. Well, hubby and I are so excited to share that we experienced one of those moments exactly 10 weeks ago when we found out we have a little baby on the way. Not only just that day, but everything that followed - seeing the baby's heartbeat for the first time, sharing the good news with our family and friends, and most recently watching the baby move around and stretch in my belly during our last ultrasound appointment. These moments are constant reminders of the blessings in our life and I couldn't be more grateful. 

Now after all that great news, I will be completely honest with you and say that these last 14 weeks haven't been complete bliss every minute. In fact, it was a constant struggle of trying to remind myself that this is a happy time. Yes, I have been beyond thrilled about the news, but was also taken over by nausea and exhaustion. Morning sickness…or better yet, every waking hour sickness, and tired is an understatement….complete and utter exhaustion. At all times. Fortunately as my belly grows the nausea and exhaustion get less and less and I am finally feeling like myself again. 

So now the countdown begins to June 4, 2014. The day our family will add our little plus 1.  

Happy times!
