I Love Birthdays!

If any of you remember, I had an awesome birthday this year! Brandon totally spoiled me and I had the best day ever. At the end of my post I wrote that it was the best birthday I'd had...yet.

My half-birthday (no, I don't celebrate those but yes, I always think about them) isn't even until tomorrow, but I can't help thinking about my next birthday already. There's a possibility it might be even better than my last.

Why?

Because.....

For my next birthday.....

I'm getting THIS!!

We are finally going to have a baby! And I couldn't be more excited! My due date is actually 6 days after my birthday but what do due dates mean anyway? Babies come when they are ready. Should be sometime at the end of April.

It's hard to believe that this sweet little thing is swimming around inside my belly. Brandon and I are so grateful for this miracle.

I'm 13 weeks today and hoping and praying that the morning sickness will go away before the baby comes! I've thrown up about a million times it seems like. But it's all for a good cause.

AHHHH! Congratulations!! I am so so happy for you! Exciting! :):) Can't wait to hear what you are having!

Dustin and Sara said...

Don't let anyone tell you that morning sickness ends at 12 weeks. That is a big fat lie! I would have to guess that you're having a boy. I'm rarely wrong about these things. :)

Jason and Shannon Salmon said...

We couln't be more excited either. Congrats again and again!!

Jen said...

I was wondering when you were going to post about being pregnant. Again, I am so happy for you. When are we going to get together? I really am dying to see you.

Kimberly said...

I totally cried when I read the e-mail that got sent out to the fam. I could not be happier for you two! You guys will be such great parents. If there is anything I've learned in going through what we have in the last 6 years, it's that Heavenly Father always has a reason for letting us go through hard things. Sometimes it is hard to see those reasons but it is always for our benefit and growth. I love you guys and I can't wait to see the little guy or girl. Of course whatever it happens to be, it will be gorgeous because you guys are both hot, so there's that...
