Yesterday Rich and I celebrated our 8th wedding anniversary. I’ve known him since we were 18 and the years have just flown by. I am very blessed to be married to my best friend!
We’re also celebrating another bit of other really happy news…
Today I made it to the 2nd trimester – I’m pregnant!
I don’t know when the ‘right’ time is to make this announcement, as there really is no ‘safe’ time – that is until that baby’s born safely with 10 fingers and 10 toes! But honestly I literally cannot hide it much longer. I’m definitely starting to show!
It’s been a long road to get to today. Rich and I purposely waited to have kids as we were both more than busy with our careers. And then adding to that, “practicing” took longer than we expected. (Practice makes perfect, right?) But we’re here today and we can’t wait to give Pebbles and Lexi a new playmate and sibling!! On that note, you know how much we love our dear fur babies. If you have personal tips on keeping the spoiled fur babies happy after bringing home a baby, please send them my way. As an animal welfare enthusiast, there will always be fur kids in my house and they will continue to be spoiled.
We’ll keep you updated on our progress. I’m a planner and I’m very impatient, so I will absolutely be finding out the gender (and I do have names picked out already)! So I’ll share that news as it comes our way.
I want to personally thank so many of my dear friends who have been amazingly supportive both during the time we were trying (a very anxious time) and since we found out the good news (You know I could not keep completely quiet until now, right?!). You all know who you are, but you may not know how much I love you and appreciate your encouragement.
Lastly, for all the praying types – please keep us in your prayers. We’ve been really thankful with how decent I’ve been feeling thus far – let’s hope it continues!
Thanks so much for reading and sharing in our happy news,
