California, baby, engagements, etc

We had a wonderful time in California over the first five days in July! The weather was absolutely perfect and it was so gorgeous over on the west coast! I put pictures up on the “pictures page” (tab at the top of the page). Enjoy!

I had my second doctor’s appointment on Tuesday. It went really well and everything is still fine. I got to see my new doctor (the old one is leaving) and I really loved her. We have an ultrasound the first of August and Andy will be able to come to it!

I’d like to say a big CONGRATS! to my sister-in-law, Ashley on her engagement! We are so excited for her and Drew and can’t wait to enjoy the wedding sometime next spring. (Ashley, the baby told me he/she is excited about coming too! haha!)

I am currently trying to plan a “babymoon” for Andy and I to go on before the baby gets here. I thought I’d have a hard time talking into Andy this, but he jumped right on the idea. We’re thinking of going somewhere in the Caribbean for a four day weekend or something. We’re going to use that as our Christmas gift too. Neither one of us want or need a thing so I’d rather just take a trip and buy stuff for the baby instead at Christmas. 

Lately, and probably a lot because of the miracle of this little baby growing inside me (so weird!), I have been feeling so beyond blessed. When I think about how our life has progressed along these past five years, I cannot help but feel so overwhelmed with thankfulness of how our lives have been blessed. God has always provided for us and has had such good timing with everything in our lives. Andy and I always said we wouldn’t think about having a baby until we were married five years because we wanted at least five to enjoy together before having a baby. Well, how funny that the week after our fifth anniversary we find out we’re expecting! Just one of those things that makes you know God is always in control, and as they say, has a sense of humor!

Baby Harris’ 1st Photo!

Well, this week has been crazy to say the least! As most (if not all) of you know, Andy and I are expecting our first baby! We are so excited & are so glad at the excitement that has come out of our family and friends when hearing the news!

Last week I started spotting some and became very worried so my doctor told me to go to the ER. Long story short, it was a terrible experience but I did not miscarry. Today (Thursday) I went to the doctor and got an ultrasound done to make sure everything was where it needed to be growth wise and that the baby was doing fine. What an amazing thing to see this little 6 and 1/2 week old baby have a teeny tiny heartbeat!!!! I couldn’t believe it! There was no mistaking it either! I am so thankful that everything is fine and the baby is right where he/she needs to be for development!

I thought I would share the ultrasound picture because I know the family will want to see (and some friends, ha). Andy has declared Baby Harris a boy & the Chinese Gender Predictor (found on thebump.com) says its a boy too. We’ve got about 14 more weeks before we know so hopefully Andy can come to terms with the fact that it could be a girl! 🙂
