On growing

Thank you thank you for all the excitement over our big announcement. It's hard to believe that on June 30th (or some time around) we will be a sleep-deprived but blissfully happy family of three.

This past year has been a huge year of growing up for Jason and me. In July, after trying for quite some time, we bought a beautiful home.





On October 21st, again after trying for quite some time, we found out we were going to be parents.





On December 9th, we received further confirmation that there is indeed a little baby Evans on his/her way

And today I experienced the result of the literal growth that comes with pregnancy. As I attempted to get dressed for church, I realized sadly that none of my skirts fit and most of my dresses have ties around the waist that are very uncomfortable. Yes, this made us late to church and no, there is no picture to document this growth.

I hate that stage. Time for maternity (or just "stretchy fat clothes" aka bigger sizes as Karen Strong calls them) clothes! Exciting year for you guys!

Congratulations Jessie! We are so excited for you and jason to be parents soon! There is nothing like it - fun and yet so much work at the same time! I hope you are feeling well and have a great pregnancy. Be sure to post a pregnant photo when you are showing!

When you get to your 3rd trimester and then none of your shoes fit because you have elephantitis you wont even go. You will just curl up in bed and cry. Poor Zach thought I had lost my mind.

Hey Jesse, I know I don't know you too well but I just wanted to say congrats.. I tried for A LONG time and ended up going through adoption which ended up being perfect and a huge blessing for us cause we got our son, however I can only imagine what it feels like to finally get pregnant! CONGRATS!
