Hello hello! I am so sorry I haven’t been writing lately. I have been a little preoccupied by this growing baby in my tummy! That’s right, we are expecting a BABY!!! Little Cantrell is coming in October and we are thrilled! It has been a very hard secret to keep these last couple of months since I have been sick pretty much the whole time. I have been anxiously awaiting this moment FOREVER (so it seems).
We told our families on Easter Sunday just before lunch and they were ecstatic. We put letters that spelled out “Logan is Pregnant” in Easter eggs and my mom tried to play it off as one of her holiday games. At first, everyone was spelling out “Easter,” “He is Risen,” etc., until my grandmother spelled out “nesting” and that got everyone in the right frame of mind. After that, it didn’t take long for them to figure it out. I loved that my mom took a picture of everyone’s reaction. These pictures are something I will always treasure.
|Everyone trying to figure out the puzzle…|
|I love everyone’s face in this one!|
On the other hand, I’m not really sure how Pippa is going to handle it. She won’t be an only child anymore and that will be devastating to her, but I’m sure she will adjust.
Up to this point, I’ve been craving horrible food. Week 8, all I could/would eat is Zaxby’s. Terrible for me and baby, but I’ve been eating better this week. I went to the Doctor for my 12 week appointment today and everything looked great. She said I have a very “active” baby. I have only gained 1 pound since my last visit which is pretty exciting but I will probably start gaining about a pound a week from here on.
We would greatly appreciate your prayers during this special time. I am so excited to finally share this wonderful news with all of you!
