Just an update...

Aaron and I had our first "baby" doctor appointment on Thursday. I was nervous as ever, but everything went great! We actually saw the little baby - which looked like a peanut AND heard the heartbeat! That really sealed the deal! When we saw the baby on the monitor, I was a little in shock - but then when the nurse said to be real quiet and we would listen for the heartbeat...just one second later we heard it just as clear as ever. It was beating so fast - and strong. Tears were pouring down my face - it was unexplainable! What a miracle. Here's our first picture this is at 6 weeks and 3 days.We are due August 10th, 2009 - only 8 months away! Our next appt. will be January 15th - that's when they will get all my bloodwork, and do another ultrasound. Everyone has been saying that I will ba amazed at how much changes by then. I can't wait!

I have been feeling great - a few little tired spells - but no sickness at all! yippee! My grandmother told me that if I wasn't sick then I should just go ahead and have a dozen...FUNNY!

Tuesday night we will pack-up Aaron's car to spend 5 days in GA. It should be interesting - fitting 170 pounds of dogs, all their food, 2 people, all out junk for 5 days - and Christmas presents for each other and 3 families into his 1997 camry - which i fondly refer to as the Dad car. I am pretty sure that the picture of us pulling out of the driveway will slightly resemble a scene from the Griswold's Christmas Vacation!

So till next time - hope you have a Very Merry Christmas!

Baby Mama

So for forever my discipleship girls (11th grade) have been wanting to have a slumber party and watch Baby Mama! How much fun right! We agreed several weeks ago that we would slumber and watch the movie at my house but the girls had to show-up to the house with a Baby Mama belly. They all agreed and plans were made. WELL...oddly enough last weekend Aaron and I found out that we were expecting our first baby (HOORAY)!

We told our family and our closest friends...and the word started to spread - but hadn't made it to my discipleship gals yet. So on Friday night the girls actually got to the house about 10 minutes before I did...and were all standing out in my front yard with "Baby Mama" bellies...it was hilarious. So I got out of the car - opened my jacket and said..."Well, here's my baby mama belly" and all at once they started screaming and jumping and screaming even more. It was so crazy how the timing worked out - but it was so great! Here's 2 pics we took with our Baby Mama poses!

We had so much fun - and I can thankfully say that Aaron and I have some very incredible babysitters lined up! What precious young ladies!

We have our first doctors appointment on the 18th - apparently I will be 6-7 weeks along then. I have been using babycenter.com as my "online doctor" and it's provided a lot of great information! Keep us in your prayers - we are so thrilled and give God the complete Glory for this blessing!

Christmas Decorating!

We finally got the tree up! I have been looking forward to decorating a tree since after Christmas last year - when I bought all new ornaments on clearance at Target. So this year we got a new tree from Sam's Club - and I am so happy with it! Here's Sarah Caroline in front of her tree - that's her happy Christmas face she is displaying!

Here's our Christmas tree - it's a 9ft. slim pre-lit with mostly non-breakable ornaments. Since last year everytime the dogs walked by the tree - at least one ornament was lost in the process - knocked off the tree by their tails and shattered on the floor. All we're missing now is a tree-skirt...Nala posed for a picture for us...actually like 15 pictures because that's how many it took to get to this one.
