{ Big news! }

Growing up I always dreamt of being a mom when I grew up. Not really about being a ballerina, or about my wedding…..but about being pregnant and having fun raising my kids.

I come from a back ground of some serious infertility issues (I was actually an in-vitro baby), so that’s always been in the back of my mind too – and made me decide very early on that I would be a young mom! (or at least try to be). Luckily I have the most amazing husband who has the same ideas. And we have both always talked about our kids and everything we want for them.

Well I am happy to announce (to those who don’t know already), that my dreams are coming true, and that God has blessed Sean and I with a little tiny bundle of joy.

A couple weeks ago we went for the baby’s first ultrasound and saw his or her little heart going a mile a minute and it was honestly the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. We immediately prayed to God and thanked him for this the moment our doctor stepped out of the room, I mean…just wow. I am getting teary eyed just thinking about it!

Then we were able to go back this week and our baby has already grown so much!

I have to say, I feel completely different, totally different than what I was really expecting. I mean, I knew I would be happy. But Sean and I are just so utterly IN LOVE already. It’s all we can think or talk about, just like when we first started dating 9 years ago- it’s that kinda new love all over again. It takes my breath away just thinking of this beautiful baby growing inside my belly.

My heart is just too full! I could go on forever. But I know a picture is worth more than anything I could say, and I have to say this is the most beautiful picture I have ever seen!

{See the little arms and legs?! Cutest ever arms and legs ever! :) }

**Updated to add** : We have had a few questions about the time we are planning to take off for the baby. We are planning to take our last wedding at the beginning of June, spend quality time as a new family together, then we are picking up with our first wedding back on July 24th . If your wedding date is during our time off, please feel free to send us an e-mail anyway, and I would be happy to send you to some fantastic photographer friends of ours. And as always, please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or concerns at all. xoxo
