Blog, Baby, House & Life

I just want to thank everyone for the comments we’ve received via Facebook, text message and on the blog regarding our exciting news!



I know with the recent announcement of our new addition that it seems like it might get a little baby crazy over here. My hope is to share with you our baby journey, just as I have my marathon journey’s, as well as our wedding journey. It won’t be all baby central here all the time, but due to the fact that I’ve been holding onto this juicy news for almost three months my posts may seem a little baby heavy for the first little bit as I have a lot to say! And honestly I hope to keep this blog as a place where I can still reflect on life as a new military wife and my fitness journey as well.


Wednesday marked our 12 week appointment. I was nervous and excited because I knew once the Dr. said everything was ok, that I would feel comfortable letting our little secret out.

Now that the news is public I really feel like this is real!

8 weeks ultrasound

Here is our first ultrasound from the 8 week appointment. It resembles a little bean in this picture.

I have been taking the obligatory weekly belly shots. Here we are at 12 weeks.

I feel like it’s kind of hard to tell what kind of changes are happening without looking back at the first belly photo. So I dug up my 7 week week photo for comparison.


I personally don’t feel much different, but I can definitely see a difference in the photos. Crazy right?


I mentioned about a month ago that we were in the process of closing on a home. And we [a full month later] are still in the process of closing on our home! The lenders are saying that next week is the week FOR REAL, so I’m saying a little prayer to the house angels that this is the real deal.


I feel like there are a lot of [mostly] exciting life things happening over here, and it is crazy that they all seem to be happening at once. There are a few more announcements yet to come, but they warrant their own blog post. So stayed tuned for even more life updates soon.


Hope y’all have a great weekend!

    Hope the house closes this week for real, you have lots of other things to think about with the baby and it would be nice if you have a home so you won’t have to worry about that.
