Coming this Fall 
one sweet little baby Reid!



I was able to catch Mike's reaction on camera when I told him I was pregnant. Look at that cute dad to be.
Although the sign says November I am actually due October 29. I can not even begin to express the emotions I have felt over the fast few months. I am so excited to be a mother and I am already so attached to this sweet little baby inside of me. I have felt so blessed over the past few weeks. My family has done so much to take care of me and to do the things that I normally do and can't.
I have had many emotional moments thinking about my wonderful mother since I have been pregnant. I have had a hard pregnancy so far and some days are really difficult. It has made me appreciate my mom so much more than I ever did before. I had no idea what pregnancy was like. Just knowing that my mom went through all of that to bring me into the world has just made my love for her grow even more. I appreciate every day she felt nauseous and sick and weak for me. I am so happy that I can do that for our sweet little baby. She has helped me so much and I truly love her.
I could not have asked for a more caring husband. Mike has been my rock these past few months. He has been by my side comforting me and taking care of me. He has emptied countless bowls of throw up and given me so many back scratches when my nausea has been so bad. He gets me food when I can't get out of bed and will drop everything to help me. I honestly don't know how I could have done this without him. He has been positive and supportive. I think this picture just goes to show he will be an amazing dad.

We are so excited and feel so blessed for this baby to come. We can't wait until October  and we get to meet this little boy or girl

Stumbled upon your blog...First of all, congratulations! The way you broke the news is adorable. Second of all, where did you find your wedding dress?? I'm having the hardest time finding a modest wedding dress, much less one that I like.
