We're having a baby!

Jason and I are going to be parents! On the morning on March 16, we took a test (more like I took a test) and it was positive!  Our first calls were to future grandmothers- Karen and Nancy, followed by other family.  What an incredible thing to share with those we love!

For 24 years, I had never been worried about getting hit by a car in a parking lot or been so aware of babies everywhere (seriously- they are EVERYWHERE!)  But after that test, newly armed with the knowledge that there is a special someone growing inside of me, I have become hyperaware of anything that could harm my baby and super excited to see babies!

Unfortunately the not so great part of pregnancy, the morning sickness, has set in and has been pretty relentless.  Jason has been incredible taking care of me (and Peanut, and the house, and the laundry, and the cleaning and everything else...)  We have been to the hospital twice and have tried everything we can think of or that people have told us that helped them.  Hopefully this will only last a few more weeks and that it will stop when I get into the second trimester.  

Our due date is November 25th!  

I am a Rude! :)

Being married is so great!  Jason and I have just celebrated our two month anniversary and it has been the best two months of my life!

Here are some highlights:

Our honeymoon was so fun!  We got to go to Daytona Beach the day after we got married.  We got bumped from our flight, and made it to the hotel in the wee hours of the morning but we still had fun on the way there!  When we arrived in Orlando to get our rental car we were informed that all they had left were minivans... but then after they learned we were on our honeymoon, they surprised us with a really fun car!

While on our honeymoon, we went to Disney World!  It was my first time and I LOVED it!  We went to Hollywood Studios and Epcot.  We were there all day and the night was capped off with some amazing mexican food and FIREWORKS!  We got VIP seats down on the dock to watch the nightly fireworks at Epcot.  So cool!
This is on our way in... It was kind of chilly!
24 and I finally made it to Disney World!

The end of our fabulous day! Our VIP seats to the firework show!

When we returned from our honeymoon, we went to my parent's house and opened up our wedding gifts.  People were SO generous!  Even though a note could never express our thankfulness to all our friends and family that helped to make our day so special... official Thank You's will be out soon!

Getting settled in our home has been fun!  I have learned a lot about how Jason organizes and his daily habits I did not know about before.  Truth be told, the more I find out about him... the more I LOVE him!  People have been asking a lot, "how is married life?"  Married life is great!  I get to see my best friend every day and night!

I still get excited whenever I hear Jason call me his wife and can't stop smiling when I say the phrase, "my husband."  Looking forward to a lifetime of being married to my best friend!
