Baby Updates

As most of you know, we are expecting our first baby June 1, 2010. I will be 18 weeks pregnant tomorrow! We are so excited especially as the months progress and new symptoms (a bump, subtle movements, etc.) make this miracle become more of our reality. We spent the weekend cleaning out the front bedroom that will soon morph into a nursery. Our most excitement at the moment is over our doctor's appointment tomorrow. This will be the first ultrasound appointment that Nick will get to be a part of, and will find out the gender!!! Up until now it has been such a thrill just to hear the little one's heartbeat once a month, but we are ecstatic over getting to see it moving around (and not having to call it an IT anymore)! It has been so special to see Nick throughout the pregnancy. From sitting in the waiting room 2 hours with me just to hear the heartbeat on the doppler, to the way he says goodbye to me then the baby every morning by sticking his finger in my bellybutton (he says that is the closest he can get to it:)) I can already tell what an amazing dad he will be! Well I hope that this post finds everyone well and enjoying the holiday season! We are eager to finally be heading to Memphis to celebrate Christmas and New Year's with the Bradshaw's Thursday. Check back for updates soon! I will leave you with a few pictures from our trip to Mexico the week before last.

This is where we went snorkeling in Cenotes. These are basically caves that are was so pretty (but freezing)!!
Here we are at some Mayan ruins, very interesting!

A New Venture

Well, I finally did it.... I joined the sorority of bloggers. I have never claimed to be much of a writer, nor have I more than novice technical skills, but with an increasingly busy schedule and a baby on the way, I knew something drastic must be done to keep us in touch with the ones we love. I can tell I am getting old when the thrill of being up to date with the latest online trends is replaced by frustration with no "Blogging for Dummies" website. So here it pathetic attempt to make up for my inadequacies in keeping in touch with the special people in our lives. We love you all!
