A Little Announcement

dress: yesstyle (gift from mom) | shoes: target | hairpin: sandy a la mode | necklace: gift from christine

i’m 15 1/2 weeks pregnant today.

baby a la mode is the size of a navel orange.

we took our first sonogram picture on our 2 year wedding anniversary.  it was the best present ever!

i’ve been lucky enough to dodge any morning sickness.

i eat a lot.

i crave pickles, watermelon and cheetos.

baby a la mode has already been to 12 states.

we find out the gender in 3 weeks and we have names picked out for a boy or girl.

shopping for unisex baby stuff ain’t easy.

we’re hoping to move into a new house and sell our current one this summer!  busy busy!

baby a la mode is due right before christmas.

i can’t wait to see what he/she looks and acts like!

i won’t be turning this blog into a baby blog but i may just be posting about some more baby stuff.

we’re over the moon excited, happy, nervous parents-to-be!

Don’t forget to enter the Shabby Apple (ends 7/7 at 12pm cst) and The Rusted Chain (ends 7/13 at 12pm cst) giveaways!
