Sharing Our Joy

12 weeks-6858

12 weeks-6859

Blessed to announce that baby beaugh will be joining us in May!

Yes, I’m only 12 weeks pregnant in these photos and yes, I’m certain there’s only one in there. πŸ˜‰ I always secretly wished to be a gigantic pregnant lady one day and now I feel like that wish is finally going to come true. It’s been SO HARD keeping this secret from you guys for so long. Trust me. So many days I just wanted to blurt it out in a random recipe post but I forced myself to stay quiet until hitting the second trimester. I guess this can explain all the ice cream photos that have been taking over my Instagram feed this fall.

God is so good and we already so in love with this little one growing inside of me!

More details coming soon!

    Hi Jenna! I’m a long time reader, but first time poster. November 4th last year we hit the second trimester with our first baby and I couldn’t wait to share the news with everyone… So I know how you feel & I had a happy deja-vu moment of spilling the beans. We welcomed our little guy 5 months ago & he has turned our world upside down – in a good way!!! Congrats!
