We’re having a BABY!!!
Hard to believe I’m already a third of the way through the pregnancy, but I felt so nauseous for the first 12 weeks (and spent so much of it napping) that it feels like it went by in a blink. Now that I’m feeling better and finally have more energy, I can’t imagine how quickly the rest will fly by. I’m so happy the secret is out so I can finally share everything I’ve been thinking about and all the adorable nursery ideas I have already. I’ve been secretly blogging about it all from the start, so I’ll start to those posts over the next few weeks. But first, details on our public announcement.
We didn’t spend too much time agonizing over how to share the news publicly but were a bit stumped about who could actually snap the picture for us. We tend to be the ones behind the lens for family and friends, so it’s always a challenge to get any good shots of us, you know, together! We’d talked about a few funny pictures to take involving wine glasses and a sippy cup or just using the silly iPhone pic I snapped of us with the ultrasound monitor that I’ve been referring to as “baby’s first selfie,” but decided to keep it simple and just hold the sonogram (top picture). Luckily, our friend Sterling agreed to snap these for us after pumpkin picking this past weekend. We’re so happy with how they turned out! Just holding a few props in a beautiful outdoor setting really make a difference.
This sweet card from my friend Grace was among the first sent to us, which worked out perfectly as a prop for this other announcement photo we debated using.
