Unconditionally, Head-Over-Heels, in Love

I have a post about Spark the Event coming but until then, I just wanted to share my and Ryan's happy news:

We're having a baby!


After 4.5 long years of trying, our little miracle is on its way.

I'm due in May, which means I'm almost out of the first trimester. I really had planned on waiting to say anything until I was 13-or-so weeks, but I'm just so excited that my big mouth can't be shut {or held responsible! - do you blame me?!}

We're thrilled, to say the least. So many years and tears and prayers have lead me to now and I'm still praying and the tears keep coming, this time out of gratitude and unconditional love.

I'll probably make everyone sick and tired of the things I start making for this kiddo, but bear with me, I'm sure they'll all be cute.

Here's another kicker - we're not going to find out the sex ahead of time. Ryan put it into words so well that I'm going to steal his.

"It's like finding out what you're getting for Christmas ahead of time but not getting to play with your new toy for 4 months!"

heh. This is why I love that man. He gets me and better yet, allows me to dictate.

So, that's that.

Thanks for sticking with me. I know it's been FORever, but I have news and updates forthcoming.

And know I've already told you a few times, but I am SO seriously excited for you guys. I think it is also fun that you guys are finding out the gender. I am curious to see all the adorable crafts you will create.

I'm also already thinking how to make your baby shower even cooler than you made mine. Good luck with that, huh?
