Happy Happy Joy Joy

091[3]

I don’t know why I thought of that or even where it’s from but there is some silly song that says “happy happy joy joy” over and over so I decided to go with it.

Anyway, the reason we are happy and joyous is because I’m pregnant! Weeee! So exciting and sorry I didn’t come up with some ingenius/creative way of posting it on the blog, but I figured it’s this or nothing…the picture below is when we found out we got our house over 2 years ago but still a good pic of us being excited!

I am almost 14 weeks along and I am due on CHRISTMAS EVE! Funny right? Kinda crazy but we are pumped. My mother in law’s birthday is the same day so that is kind of fun too. It’s really fun because our good friends Dustin and Kaley are also pregnant and just a few weeks ahead of us. Dan was more excited to tell them than anyone else! Now he and Dustin can share horror stories about how amazing their wives are :)

We have known for quite a while so it has given us some time for it to sink in somewhat although it’s still pretty crazy to think about. We are super excited and happy and can’t wait to have a baby. But we are definitely glad that we still have 6 months to figure things out and get ready because I have no idea what I’m doing! AHHH crazy-ness. We will find out in 2 more weeks (July 9) what the sex is! Our doctor does an ultrasound every appointment so it is pretty rad to be able to see the changes each time. I am partially hoping for a girl and Dan wants a boy, but we will both be stoked either way! I just love how you can dress up girls and do their hair and all that fun stuff! I have no idea what to do with a boy! But it will be exciting to find out soon.

So far I have not felt awful but definitely not great. Some people are constantly sick so I know I have it good in a lot of ways. Some days have just been blah but overall, it hasn’t been too bad. I don’t want to be a big complainer about being pregnant because I am happy to have this blessing and I am excited for the future so I’m trying not to focus on that (Dan may tell a different story). I’m amazed that there is something growing in my tummy and that my body can do this incredible thing.

I can’t even express how happy I am to be starting a family with Dan and I know he will be the best dad in the world. He is so awesome and fun and even though everyone teases him about being immature, he is really wonderful and I have no worries about him being a dad. He honestly takes care of me so much and I would not have survived the past few months without him! He is so patient with me and never complains when I’m being a bum or not doing anything at all. He just does it and makes sure I am okay. I just adore him. Happy day!

Congratulations!!! I'm so excited for you guys! That is wonderful news. I'm glad you've been feeling good; being pregnant definitely has it's low points but it really is the most amazing time and it's so worth it when you meet that little sweetie the first time! Can't wait to find out if it's a boy or girl; I'm team girl too of course, but either way, so exciting!!

Also, we should really exchange numbers or something! I like talking to other pregnant women about pregnancy (isn't it amazing?!) Plus our kiddos can be play date friends. :)

Congrats Hills! You guys will be such great parents. I'm very impressed with the secret keeping skills, I always tell people so fast, I have no patience I guess.

A Christmas baby, what a great gift!
