Peachy Keen

This week, our baby is the size of a peach. This is officially my last week of the first trimester! I am starting to feel really good. The nausea seems to have subsided, and my appetite has come back! I think Tim is more excited about that than I am! We leave for vacation on Saturday, so be looking for lots of pictures in the future! Florida, here we come.

The Peanut is Growing

This week we went back to the doctor for my check up and another sonogram. We discovered that I am further along then we originally thought. I am due February 5Th. We had also discovered that Peanut had grown since the last time we had seen him/her. It is so amazing to hear your child's heartbeat beating inside of you. Words cannot describe it.

Big News!

Yes, it's that news! Tim and I will be welcoming baby Smith on February 13th. We are so excited. I want to thank all of you who have been praying for us. This year has been such a rollar coaster for Tim and I. It's funny how God shines through during your pain. He has shown Tim and I much patience thus far. Here are a few pictures we have taken so far.

This is the pregnancy test:

When we told our parents, we decided we wanted to make it fun. We found a "World's Greatest Grandpa" tee for Mike, and I made a "World's Greatest Pop" tee for my dad.

We are excited and anticipating this next step in our lives!
