The best post EVER :)

So everyone in real life and in the facebook world knows but it is about time that I post the most exciting news ever on my blog & it kind of explains the lack of posting for several months. 


Come September 30th, Matthew Ryan and I will be adding a precious addition to our family & will be welcoming OUR FIRST BABY into the world!!!!! :)

We are pretty much ridiculously excited and think that already we have the cutest little munchkin ever. :)  The little person is already so cute & was moving SO much at our 12 week was the coolest thing to watch.   

I am 15 weeks & 3 days and baby Garlich is the size of an avocado which seems pretty big to me considering he or she started out the size of an orange seed (according to my What to Expect Iphone app :))  

I am starting to feel much better after a first trimester of being exhausted & queasy so I am thanking the Lord for that.  I have been blessed so far to have not been extremely sick & other than just coming home from work and going straight to bed and having to eat crackers around the clock, it has been a pretty easy pregnancy. 

I have been really bad about taking belly pictures and I don't even have a before but with updating the blog, hopefully it will help me to stay on track.  Here is the belly at 14 weeks when I was in a Target fitting room trying on maxi dresses.   I need to get Matt to take one of me this week because is has definitely grown since then which hopefully means the baby is growing too! :)

We already have so much love for this little person & listening to my husband pray for him or her is probably one of the best things ever.  I can't believe that in a few short months (well, really a long HOT summer, haha) our lives will change forever with a tiny little person who will be one of the most important people in our lives. 

Stay tuned for updates! :)
