Remember when I took a month off from blogging back in June and I blamed it on needing a break and wanting to spend time with my in-laws? Well that was definitely part of it, but the biggest reason for my absence was this:
Although, I'm sure many of you had your suspicions but were too polite to ask :)
my birthday, but Jim and I decided we would wait until I was at least 12 weeks along before announcing it. We told only our family and few close friends in that first trimester. I know it's an individual choice for when such news should be shared, and call me superstitious, but I just wanted to hit a point where I felt really confident in this pregnancy. And surprisingly enough, it's been kind of fun keeping this under wraps for as long as we have. By now, many of our closest friends know, and while I'm already 18 weeks along (these photos were taken when I was 16 weeks), it's still very exciting to make this news extra official!
Big Brother shirt**, I'm announcing this a little bit later than I had originally thought I would, but such is life!
Our official due date is January 1, 2017! A New Year's baby! We are so excited to grow our little family and provide a sibling for Sully.
*Jaiden doesn't have a website or Facebook page but for any locals interested, she is offering mini-sessions for a great price and I can send you her contact information.
**Sully's Big Brother t-shirt was made for me by a local company called That's a Great Shirt. I told them what I wanted and they were able to create it for me. They were so easy and pleasant to work with and I cannot recommend them enough if you need a t-shirt made. The turnaround time was less than a week, and local pickup is available to save on shipping!
