Baby J. is on the way :)


Well, our pregnancy is in full-swing... and here is our first picture to prove it! :) This was taken at almost 8 weeks. We absolutely love our doctor and how he truly cares for us and our baby. He goes to our church, so that is a great comfort to Eric and me. He even prayed with us before we left his office... I'm not sure if he knows how much that means to this brand new Mommy and Daddy team. :)

Overall, I've been doing very well! I'm now two weeks away from entering my second trimester! :) I haven't had any sickness (crazy, I know) so teaching has been nothing different... aside from the fact that I am tired pretty much all the time. I'm not scared to turn off the lights in my room and take a nap during my break. :) Not a big deal if you think about it, though. I can handle being tired as long as I'm not having to juggle teaching with being sick! Fingers crossed that this continues! :)

P.S. My students ask me all the time if I can feel the baby yet... they can't wait for the baby to kick! :) They are so sweet...

Eric has been wonderful so far, too! He's a little confused sometimes as to why I'm so dang tired, but he's starting to just let me be. :) Hopefully, I'll get my energy back in the next couple of weeks so I can get moving again! I miss working in the yard and going to the gym! I'm ready to get going!

That's all for now... thanks so much for your prayers as we get ready to be parents! I am totally ready to decorate the nursery, by the way! :) There are SO many choices out there! We should find out the gender of the baby in November! Can't wait!

SO excited for you!!!! Does your doctor happen to be Dr. Thomas? My ob, Dr. Thomas, is the most wonderful christian man who prayed many, many times over us.

I just absolutely love this pic! I'm not sure if this precious little miracle looks like you or Eric, but I love those gorgeous blue eyes! What a blessing to have a Christian doctor taking care of my baby and her baby! :)
