Nugget of Joy





I have been rather tightlipped on the internet of late, as I have had a BIG secret since Christmas Day. A new member of our family, Nugget, will be joining us at the end of August (30th official due date). I wanted to wait until all family and work associates were informed of my condition, so no googling gave up any surprises. We're doing a journal, including weekly photos to minimize the second child syndrome of no photos or pregnancy memories that many people experience. Below are a few of my favorites. The first is six weeks, the second is 10, and the last is 12 weeks (blurry Hawaii shot). Today marks the beginning of week 14, but my photographer and assistant are both taking a late nap, so we will take that photo tonight.
As you can see, Ryan is getting into showing off his belly too. He informed my yesterday that there is a baby in his tummy too, and that his name is Baby Emmett. (our close friends have a 5 month old son with this SAME name, coincidence?)
We're not hung up on the gender of this kid, we just want a full-term and healthy pregnancy.

Congrats! I'd heard through the family grapevine but kept my own mouth shut until this announcement!

Happy to share some pregger time with you and sure as hell hope you're feeling better than I was back then!
(Though am fearful of comparing your super cute 12 week photo with mine. Baby number five has had AMPLE growth space. Since like Day One.)
