Some {BIG} news...

Hey there everyone - I am so so sorry that I didn't participate in 5 Question Friday last week, I will continue to do it this week. But, in my defense, I have a really good excuse:


Yep, that's right!!! The Dennifers are expecting our first child & we are SUPER excited! It was a long road to get here & we couldn't be more thrilled! We love him or her so much already...it's so amazing how attached you can get to something the size of a large lime. So, that's where I was on Friday - at my OB, getting the bejesus scared outta me. Baby J (as I'll refer to him/her) decided that instead of letting momma & daddy hear his heartbeat with the Doppler at the Dr's office, that he'd make momma wait a little while & get a last minute ultrasound. That's how we got this pic at 12 weeks of our little one, otherwise I was going to wait until next week to announce it on the blog after the Nuchal Translucency (NT) Scan. His heartbeat was 164 bpm, which was perfect, but yeah - that was majorly scary!  I even think I'm showing maybe a little bit?! My OB seems to think that I am at least, which sounds great to me since I have already started wearing the most comfortable invention ever - maternity jeans! Here is a 5 week vs. 12 week "bump" comparison:



But don't worry, this blog will not turn into an exclusive baby blog. It'll still be about everything going on in our lives, including other non-baby D&R projects, my DIY crafts, trips, etc. Although, of course, the baby is a huge part of our life & I'll be documenting my pregnancy as well on the blog. I can't wait to get started on the nursery & all the other baby DIY crafts I have in mind. In fact, we are going to scout out a new rocker for the nursery today - I talked the hubbs into it after our scary day on Friday. :o) I now have an even more powerful tool to persuade him - the baby!!

Anywho, I hope everyone continues to enjoy my posts (both baby & non-baby related) - I still have to finish up our spring cleaning to do lists, give updates on the craziness with our front sidewalk, post a couple recipes, and lots more! Now, I need to go jump in the shower so we can get shopping!!
