Oh Baby! We're Having a BABY!

On January 2nd, Ryan and I found out that I was pregnant!
We were both ecstatic, and I literally took 4 test to make sure it was real!
We kept the news top secret, until this past Saturday when we had planned a dinner with both of our parents.
Jeff, Ryan's Dad, had just had a birthday so we gave him a "gift", but really it was just a platform for us to tell them they were going to be grandparents!
In the box were three NCSU wolfpack baby bibs!
We got the exact reaction we had expected from each parent.

My Mom was shocked and looked right at us to see our faces, then she flipped.
My Dad just laughed and cried at the same time.
Ryan's Dad laughed and started to take pictures, and
Ryan's Mom started squealing and hugging us.

It was perfect!
I don't even remember eating; there was so much excitement. 

We then took the picture we had planned, and announced it to the Facebook and IG world, where it spread like wildfire!


I am so excited to be a mom to be and Ryan is really, really excited to be a dad.
He texts me name ideas all day long.
It makes my heart melt to think about how life will be in just a few short months.

I am just truly thankful to God for this gift and am praying for a healthy pregnancy and healthy little one.


I had my first appointment yesterday, and they think I am about 7-8 weeks, but we will know for sure on January 28th, when I have my first ultrasound!!
