YES!! The time is here-- we are having a BABY!!!

Right after the test actually gave me a positive sign!!

I wanted a belly shot from when I first found out so I could track my belly growth-- so this is me at 4 weeks along.... obviously more belly pictures to come as I hit more landmarks and as I get bigger!

I made these frames and took a picture of my positive stick to give to our parents! They both were shocked and SO happy to be Grandparents again!! Now, from us, they have a Grand Cat, Grand Dog, and as they called it- a Grand Stick! :)

On the "feeling" part- I'm feeling pretty darn good-- Pam said she had morning sickness right away and heart burn- but my mom said she really didn't have much of that- a little morning sickness here and there-- so let's hope things go like that for me. (Feel bad for Jenae- she followed in her mom's footsteps)I am feeling bloated and have those "uterus is growing" feelings- basically feels like a dull cramp- and the chest area is a bit tender-- but I'm sure as the weeks continue to pass I'll be experiencing more and more symptoms. Any advice is welcome!

We are SOO excited and we should be expecting our little bundle of joy around January 4th.

Joey Playing

Having a puppy is just like having a baby in the house---when it's play time he has to take all of his toys out of his little puppy toy box and spread them all over the living room- just like a baby-- I guess this is good training! :)

I call this his toddler years-- he is getting so big so fast!!
