Running from the Law: A Pink Surprise!

A Pink Surprise!


{image designed by Head and Heart}

I am beyond thrilled to finally spill the beans on what we've been up to these days.  We are expecting a little PINK bundle of joy in July.  Baby Girl surprised us all (well, as much as you can be surprised when trying for over a year to get pregnant and doing fertility treatments) back in November, just before Thanksgiving.  It's been an exciting, exhausting and emotionally draining couple of months, but our little lady is tough and hung in there.  I've been a pukey, tired, hormonal, paranoid, nervous wreck -- let's just say that pregnancy after miscarriage is VERY scary (not to mention my "advanced maternal age" issues).  Anyway, so far all looks well with baby girl -- she's active and healthy and has already won over our hearts.  This little baby is so incredibly loved and wanted.  Ryan and I are excited, scared, happy, nervous, overjoyed, lucky and beyond blessed.   Mac is in for a big shock!  Here we go again!

  50. Congratulations!! Enjoy the pregnancy the best you can, easier said than done, but one of my regrets with Ashlynn was wasting the whole first half of the pregnancy in constant state of worry. I did better the second half because I made an effort to enjoy and with Kenley I tried to soak in everything I could (she's our last)... until 3rd tri when I was ready for her to get out! LOL. Wish you a very happy and healthy few months ahead! Mac will be the best big bro!
