12 1/2

12 1/2 weeks that is! That's right - Charlie and I are having a baby!

We are officially through with our first trimester and heard our baby's heart beat on Monday, and we couldn't be more excited! Our due date is October 7, right in the middle of Charlie's first rotation at General Electric, so there will be all sorts of changes coming up for us, but we have been praying for this baby for a long time and trust that God's timing is PERFECT.

For those of you who have asked if I plan on finding a teaching job in CT, it's been really tough to not say that I'm planning a career switch of being a stay-at-home-mom... but I'm getting really excited about this new phase for us.

We don't have a picture yet, but as soon as I do I'll post it. Keep the three of us in your prayers and we'll keep you updated as much as possible.

(For those of you who knew and kept this a secret, thanks for not spilling the beans too early!!)

Congrats! So happy to hear your wonderful news, but disappointed you'll be moving away too soon. I'm excited for all the changes, opportunities, and excitement in store for your family. Hugs!
