our big news!

so i have been MIA for FAR too long! we have had a lot going on in our household. and add with that work and my grandma became very ill 2 weeks ago - however she is doing fantastic now so we are thankful and very blessed.
the big news in my home? we are expecting our first child! i am due april 16!! i wish i could say i have felt great the entire time so far - but i would be lying! mainly my issue is nausea. all. day. long. i have only physically gotten sick 2 times thank goodness - i hate that!! i was ill and in the hospital 2 weeks ago myself from a bad virus that was going around. my dr wanted to watch me so i spent a few hours one night in the ER loading up on fluids and other fun stuff!
but needless to say again - we are so very blessed and excited for this new journey. as is brigsby for that matter:




so i hope now to be updating like i used to vs the past few weeks - life has certainly settled a bit more for us now!!
here are a few photos from when we told our parents:
ryan's side:
his dad was very proud and his sister ... well she may have freaked a little bit - she has been wanting us to have kids for a year now!

 my family: my mom did not believe us at first...and then the shock came over my dad! my brother well - not much emotion :D but they are all very excited!
(can you tell DH was using my camera for my family :) bless him!)

if you are still out there, again thanks for hanging in!

xoxo

OMG Kristen! First off, I haven't seen you in like forever and now you're pregnant?! I couldn't be more excited for you. I thought I was pregnant last month, but no go. I am just thrilled for you. Congratulations.
