Bottles, Rattles, Diapers OH My!

We are letting the cat outta the bag........Nathan and I are expecting our FIRST CHILD!!!!! We found out I was pregnant two weeks ago, but have been keeping it under the wraps until all of our family and close friends knew first. Of course I had to let me blogging friends know asap too :) I am 6 weeks pregnant as of today. My expectant due date is Feb. 18th, 2009!!! Although I have not had my first doctors visit yet, my three pregnancy test clarify that sure enough I am pregnant! WE are sooo sooo excited about this!!! We can't wait to let everyone know and have a little bundle of joy all to ourselves. I head to the doctor July 8th for my first visit and I will be 8 weeks along by then. We can't even begin to express how excited we are!! So much to come along with these 9 months ahead of me and I can't wait to blog about them everyday!!!!

So far so good for me though. I have had no morning sickness and nothing that lets me know I am pregnant. If it wouldn't have been for aunt flo not showing up, I wouldn't think I was pregnant at all!!!! I did feel tired in the evenings and still have the feeling about 3 times a week but other than tired I feel great!!! I know it might not last forever, this great feeling, but as for now it is fine!

As most of you know my sister in law is having her third child in about 3 or 4 weeks. This is exciting for me because her youngest and my oldest will be so close in age!!! We always wanted our kids to grow up close in age because we were always so close to our cousins, and it just so happens they will. My parents will have 4 grandchildren under the age of 5 when my baby is born....OMG..they will be nuts, but they love every minute of it.

My best friend is also pregnant with her first right now and he is due in August. This means our children will grow up as close as we did hopefully!!!

I know our lives are about to hit a rollercoaster, but we are prepared. Nathan will be 28 next week and myself 26 in 2 months. We are ready to settle down and have children and a family of our own!!!!! We know it will be crazy, life changing but so rewarding!!!

So many reasons to be thankful right now!!!!! We just wanted to share our excitment and news with all of you!! Please keep us in your prayers that everything goes as planned with my pregnancy and with the baby. We are over joyed and can't wait to keep the blog about the baby now!!!!! Yaahhh!!!!

OH did I shock u??

Congratulations! I am so happy for you and Nathan. A little Gadberry and a little Dirnberger around the same age sounds like trouble. I am coming home for a bit next week, so if you aren't busy we have to get together.
