Very Happy Nine-Month News...

My sweet darling readers, it's with great excitement that I announce that Alex and I are expecting our first child! It's our little honeymoon miracle (a very welcome surprise) and we are absolutely over the moon. I'm four months along (it's been almost impossible to keep quiet; I have been dying to tell you!), and my belly is slowly but surely expanding. Our babe is growing fast and furiously and is now the size of an avocado! We can't wait to welcome this little person into the world and give him or her lots of hugs, smooches and tummy rubs. xoxo

P.S. Thank you so much for putting up with my many, many baby fever posts over the past two years!

oh, joanna. i'm so happy to read this news. what really touches me is the spirit of openness and welcome that you and alex already have toward this little person, even though it was unexpected. something like this is a HUGE surprise if it wasn't planned, and the spirit with which you are receiving this little child is so heartwarming and wonderful. you aren't scared, you aren't frustrated that it wasn't necessarily intended...but there is a bigger plan out there that's gracious, kind, and loving, and you're just stepping right into that plan for your life with so much grace. warmest congratulation and blessing to all THREE of you in this special, special time. xoxo, kristen.

Sooooo much to look forward to. just make sure you take the time to enjoy yourselves before life changes forever.

I wouldn't trade my babies for the world but take the time to enjoy the little things while you can.
Congratulations. Happy Holidays.
