Christmas in June….

June marks the mid point of the year. It’s hard to believe it’s already half over! We’re halfway to December! Our family is quite anxious for Christmas this year, and not just because of all the new decorations I bought for 90% off last year! :)

Turns out, we’re expecting a BABY mid-December!

It’s always a huge relief to hit the end of that first trimester, and we’re breathing a little easier now that we have!

We’ve been to see my doctor several times and have had a couple of ultrasounds already. Our little one is growing beautifully and we are thankful.

We’re excited to finally have our secret out! I know people have been looking at my growing belly and wondering! :)

I’ve been dog-tired, but am hoping since we’re through the first trimester, I’ll start to get some energy again soon. Other than that, I’ve felt great.

Annabelle is very excited about the baby in Mommy’s tummy. She walks up to me at least three times a day and pulls at my shirt and says, “I see it, I see it, Mommy.” She’s a little confused that she can’t see the baby yet. When she and her Daddy say her bedtime prayers, she prays for “Mommy’s Baby” and last week, when we’re saying the blessing at lunch and dinner, she has started blurting out, “And Mommy’s Baby!” So sweet…

Here’s the soon to be big sister at my 12-week Dr’s appointment last week:drbigsis

and the picture I took of her on the beach on Monday… (we just got back from a trip with Lauren). DSC_0916

We are all so excited!
