a thank you.

oh my gracious, you guys are so lovely.

we have some of the nicest friends and family, thank you so much for all of the love. I can't believe we are having a baby! except I can because I've basically been in a constant state if icky feeling (morning sickness all day is for the birds. or.. can it be, please?). I'm starting to feel a bit better every day( oh please and thank you, Jesus) so the best is yet to come!

there are times every day that I stop and think, is this real life? we had our first ultrasound last week and it was probably the best thing ever. seeing the tiny little arms and legs moving all crazy-like.. the sweetest moment.

I'm pretty sure the desire to be a mom started to creep in when I was so small, only just big enough to hold a baby, but once it happened I was committed. ( ; it's one of the few things I can remember always dreaming of. so now that it is here, life is so surreal. and also, wonderful.

Chad's parents drove all the way down here for a quick visit last weekend and it sort of felt like Christmas. I'm not kidding, I think I looked out the window every hour  on Friday afternoon just hoping they had pulled up. something about being pregnant and having family close.. nothing like it.

they brought a couple drawings from our nieces and I really just can't get over how sweet the one Sophia drew all on her own was. I was going to post a photo of Chad and I to announce the big news, but that drawing was too perfect. no one told her what to draw, can you believe it?! I just love those girls so much.

anyway, thank you so much for all of the love and we love you right back. hope you're having a great week!
