First Comes Love…

First Comes Love…

In the week leading up to our wedding this past October, my aunt Sheila initiated a game of emoji Pictionary with me…

#2 was easy, of course. Everyone knows how that rhyme goes!

“First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes the baby in a baby carriage”

I just had no idea the 3rd part of that equation would come so quickly! Some of my first thoughts upon seeing the positive pregnancy test…

“But I can’t be pregnant, we don’t even have our wedding pictures back yet!”

“Nick is gonna kill me.” (In premarital counseling we had decided to wait a year before we started trying. Isn’t is just adorable when humans try to plan the timing of their lives?)

Well, the good news is we have gotten our wedding pictures back since and both Nick and I have gotten a little more used to the idea that we’re going to be parents! Even Mikko and Rowan are on board! Sort of…

We thought 2016 was a big year with all the love and marriage stuff…

But it looks like 2017 is going to give it a run for its’ money! We are very blessed!! And still a little surprised!!

Side note: If you’re doing the math, you are correct that we aren’t quite at that magic 12-week mark when most people announce. However we did get to hear the heartbeat yesterday and that was pretty cool!! I have always been an open book type person and this life event is no different! It’s been hard enough keeping it a secret for the last several weeks! We’ll welcome prayers!!
