The Times Are A'Changin!
I finally get the chance to announce our big news! Meezy and I are expecting our first child around 2/22/12. We're only 12 weeks along, but the doctor is 98% sure that it's a BOY!!! He told my sister she was having girls at this stage in both of her pregnancies, and he was right, so I'm feeling pretty confident. I couldn't be happier right now. It's been hard keeping this quiet for this many weeks, but I'm glad it's finally out in the open! My morning sickness hasn't been too bad, and even when I get it, it's actually been a nice reminder that things are still progressing each week. (Mine should've actually been called evening sickness, btw!)
It's hard to believe that this is really happening. I've always had the desire to be a parent, but I really wanted to wait until I knew the hubs and I were ready. We wanted to enjoy the married life sans kids, travel as much as possible, and be a little irresponsible with our money when we felt so inclined. I think 5 years of marriage has given us that opportunity, and now we're ready to tackle the next stage of our lives. Should be a fun and challenging journey, and I couldn't have picked a better partner to take it with.
