Well, the cat is out of the bag…so to speak. We haven’t told everyone, but we met with our small group from church tonight and we told them that we’re expecting a baby! Dan and I are beyond thrilled. We found out about three weeks ago, but have been nervous about telling everyone, but I have faith that whatever happens from here on out that God will see us through it, and we will have the support of friends through this as well. I will feel a little better after 10 weeks when miscarriages are less likely to happen. Today I am seven weeks. According to babycenter.com, little squiggles is about the size of a blueberry. Say hi to squiggles!
We’ve told our immediate family and I’ll be telling my boss this week. We will be hanging out with my grandparents and aunts and uncles next Saturday for my grandpa’s birthday and we’ll announce the big news there for everyone that has not already heard. I also have pregnancy announcement cards that I will be sending out in the next week or so for my family and friends that live out of town. They’re super cute announcements and it’s a fairly new concept to send pregnancy announcements, but I’m not shy to start the trend. Everyone that knows me knows that I LOVE to send cards and write in stationary. I guess I’m kind-of old fashion in that regard.
Dan and I had a great weekend. We went to Dahlonega with my mother-in-law for the Gold Rush festival. Actually, we didn’t even know there was a festival going on. We just wanted to go up there to see the leaves changing, eat great food at The Smithouse, which is one of our favorite things to do, and walk around and see the cute shops. The Festival was great. We were able to see some nice arts and crafts with a little bit of junk mixed in. Dan’s Mom loves the Jim Shore art. Normally it would be too country for my taste, but each time I see it I’m in awe at the artistic detail that is put into each peace, and I notice how it is beautifully made. Dan and I got the nativity scene last Christmas, and that has been the extent of our Jim Shore collection. Most of all, this was great time to spend with Dan and his mom and enjoy the beautiful weather.
Last but not least, I’d like for you to check out the poll below. Let me know what you think!
