Growing by 2 feet...

We are so happy to share with you that:
Baby R will be here October 2014 and we couldn't possibly be more excited! Well, maybe not ALL of us...Rascal is unsure of how this will go. I think he is still on the fence. We are working on it - he enjoys that "only child" thing a little too much, I think. Poor thing has no idea whats coming. Although he has been more protective over me lately which to me means he knows somethings up. And let's not kid ourselves; I love that.

We had a announcement photo shoot taken about a month or so ago and literally have been waiting on baited breathe to share them. We love the pictures more than words and cannot possibly thank our amazing photographer enough. If you are local in western Maryland you must check her out! ---> Lindsay D. Photography!
Here are some of our favorite shots!
my favorite one! look at his tongue! so sweet!!!
It wouldn't have been appropriate not to make a stupid face in a couple pictures - I really did try and keep it classy.

What fun these next 6 months will be planning, decorating and preparing for baby! We have been so wrapped up into everything "early pregnancy" lately - that projects and capturing daily life have been on a bit of a hold.
Oh, that early pregnancy exhaustion is the real deal. Hello...6pm, 2 hour naps, followed by bed time at 8pm. It has been quite a journey to get to this 13 week period, but I am starting to get my energy back! That, my friends is a welcome change. Now on to the fun part; where my clothes don't fit and I feel like a cow. Grow baby grow.

Up next - my weekly belly updates up til now! Can't wait to show you!
