So much has changed since my last blog post in February. The biggest one being that I am now pregnant! I laughed when I read my last blog post as I said, " It seems like every night turns into a conversation about what we want to do next in our lives. We seem to change our minds every week so who knows what the next few years will have in store for us but every possibility seems exciting so I can't wait!" Little did I know that I would be pregnant just a few short months later. We were hoping for a baby to come bless our lives but I was trying to not turn it into a big stressful thing. I'd been off birth control for close to 2 years and we were hoping it would just sort of happen and luckily it did! I probably wouldn't have planned a January 1st due date for my first child but now I couldn't be more excited to start off the new year with my little guy by my side. The only bummer is the timing with the holidays my parents won't be able to come out after baby is born which was hard for me to get over at first. My mom is able to come for Christmas though for a few days so maybe we will get lucky and baby boy will grace us with his presence a few days early. Cross your fingers!
We have a little over 2 months to go until baby boy makes his appearance. I had no idea picking a name would be so hard. We can't seem to find anything we love and I am having a hard time not associating any name ideas with someone I already know. When we got our first ultrasound picture our little dude had the exact profile of Charlie Brown. A little long skinny neck with a big round basketball head. We jokingly started calling him Charlie and now it has kind of just stuck. Every night we pray for Charlie to grow healthy and strong and we laugh at Charlie's kicks and moves in my belly.
