The news has been floating around for a while but I thought it was about time to blog about it.
We are expecting our first!
We are so very excited and can't wait for the sleepless nights, the never ending diapers, and all the little giggles, smiles, and milestones to come.
I'm not going to lie, so far pregnancy has not been wonderful to me, I feel nauseous a lot of the time, and I have major food aversions. ... All of this means no energy! Any food I actually manage to get in me get's used up by baby pretty quick and leaves me feeling pretty exhausted all of the time. It could be worse and I'm getting used to it so I try not to complain about it too much. I have no doubt that it will all be worth it in just a few short months!
We are at 19 weeks so almost halfway there, it is so surreal that there is a beautiful little human being growing and developing inside of me! What a miracle our bodies are.
We had our ultrasound a few days ago and of course me being me I needed to build my anticipation (not quite patient enough to wait to find out if it's a little princess or a little prince) So I decided I wanted to do a gender reveal party.
It was so much fun we had a few friends and family over for lunch and had some more friends and family join us through skype and Google+ hangout. My darling friend offered to make a cake and of course wanted to make a polka dot cake inspired by this one flying all over pinterest.
With the help of friends and my husband I was able to put together a few cute decorations.
|We had a tally of who thought Girl and who thought Boy|
And we took a video to show all those who couldn't be there the cutting of the cake... blue polka dots or pink?
So there you have it! We are expecting a little princess! and we couldn't be more thrilled!

I will try to keep you somewhat posted on the rest of the baby belly progress, I have already started a few bits for her room and will try to post about that soon as well.
I will leave you with her little profile! I love her hand up to her forehead, it's really rough being a baby all that growing and developing takes a lot out of her I'm sure... Pretty sure she gets her dramatics from me ;)
