Introducing Baby Collomy!

We had our first ultrasound yesterday, and it was absolutely amazing to see our baby for the first time!

As soon as the ultrasound started, we saw a very, very active little one! It was almost jumping around in there! It would go from all curled up to completely stretched out as quick as a flash, and back again. We were so amazed! Just the fact that we were seeing our baby was incredible.

It's too early to tell the gender (we have an appointment for that in about six weeks), but Mitchell started calling the baby "he" the minute we saw it. All day he kept catching himself saying "he." Who knows! We will just have to wait and see.

Seeing OUR BABY moving all around in there had to be one of the most amazing things I've ever experienced. Just the fact that he or she is ours....and seeing it... Just made it all so much more real. This is actually happening! We are parents!

The pictures don't do justice what we saw on the screen when the baby was moving and kicking and such, but you can catch a glimpse of our precious little child that we can't wait to meet and hold!

12 weeks 2 days

I have decided its time to start baby blogging through my pregnancy...and after the baby is born, so you all can stay updated on how things are going.

I'm 12 weeks and 2 days today (January 26th) and feeling really great. Morning sickness has pretty much dissipated, which is SUCH a blessing! It was so intense some days, so much so that I thought I couldn't take it anymore. But God is so good and gave me just enough grace to get through each day. And Mitchell has been so good through it all...encouraging me every step of the way.
We had our first appointment last week, which was basically just a consultation and it went well. This week, though, is our second one, where we'll get to have an ultrasound! We are so excited to see our baby. Or maybe its more than one! We can't wait to see! :)

Here's a belly bump picture, and I'll try to post new ones often. The quality of the picture isn't that good...I think I'll have to have Mitchell take them after this. And also a close-up of my sister Brittany and her family bought Mitchell and I matching daddy and mommy shirts for Christmas!

I Do!

I recently realized that I haven't posted many pictures from our wedding on here at all. So here they are! It was a wonderful, amazing day. I would do it all again for the amazing man I am so blessed to call my husband. Every day I love him more! :)

Bundle of Joy!

We are thrilled to announce that we are expecting a baby! It's due August of 2016!
We are excited to be parents, and are greatly anticipating the day when we get to see his or her face and hold him or her in our arms for the first time! I'm almost through the first trimester. Morning sickness has been rough, but its getting better as the days go by.
It's so much fun to dream what our little baby's future will hold, and we pray that we will be the best parents we can be. Our heart's desire is that our child grows up to love the Lord with all its heart! We are also realizing the huge responsibility of parenting a child. We will be responsible for that baby's life! It's going to be a big change, but we are excited to welcome every challenge and the many blessings headed our way.
