The Tomady gang is about to get a little bit bigger...as is Adrienne's Belly. We are expecting our first baby in August! We are so excited about this new life change. As we anticipate all the differences between our lives now and what is to come we find ourselves slightly nervous, but overwhelmingly happy. The experience of being pregnant so far has been amazing. Just this past Thursday night we had our 12 week ultrasound and the baby was moving all around! Arms and legs flailing all over! It was an emotional & joyous moment, to see the life we've created.
We are due Aug 31st 2009, I am currently 13 weeks along. So far the pregnancy thing has been pretty easy (don't know if Thomas would say the same thing :)) But really, mostly I've been really tired, and I eat ALL THE TIME! Seriously some nights I would have to eat in the middle of the night! I would wake up STARVING! But, lest you think I'm just pigging out for me, I have only gained 1 lb! 1lb, that's it! That means our little baby is using up all those added calories and is growing and developing!
Let's see what else I wanted to say here...this is grand-baby # 3 on my side and # 7 on Thomas' side. The closest cousin will be Carynn (Jillian & Ben's daughter) who was born in January of this year. We are so happy that there's another baby around ours!
Mostly, we realize God's hand in this and are eternally grateful for this wonderful gift. I am so excited to be a mom. I hope to be as good a mom as both mine and Thomas' And I know Thomas will fill the role of father as well as both of our dads.
The pic below is of the baby @ 12 weeks. Thomas put in the green dot for perspective. The doctor was able to get a profile view so the dot is right on the tip of the baby's nose! Enjoy! :)
