Ryan and I are one of those crazy couples that started talking about having kids when we were around 18. We knew that it would be waiting for quite some time, but we’d still chat about our thoughts on all things babies and parenting. It’s been fun to see over a decade’s worth of conversations become reality over the past five months. We’ve always loved being around children, and we are humbled by the opportunity to have a child of our own.

Even though we’re only 22 weeks into our journey, it’s amazing to see the outpouring of love from our family for our baby-to-be. As a child, my parents would always tell me that I was so loved even before I was born, but I always rolled my eyes and thought they were just being cheesy parents. Now that I’m almost a mother myself, I know exactly what they meant.
