Our Little Texas Souvenir

we loved texas so much we just had to take a little souvenir with us!

Announcing Baby Beck
March 5th, 2014

We are so excited!!

Mitch got to come to the first ultrasound (10 weeks) and this is one of the pictures we got. This one is just a head shot (profile) and a little arm in the air. The doctor said he was either sucking his/her thumb or waving... obviously he/she was waving at us;) the rest of the body was out of this picture in the dark. I will post more ultrasound pics soon!

We found out on July 1st- Mitch's first day at his new job. His birthday is July 4th so I tried soo hard to wait till then to tell him, and I didn't want to overwhelm him on his first day of work! That basically lasted 5 minutes and I told him right when he came home. I wrapped up the tests I took along with a really funny book I found about pregnancy written by men who are dads, and gave it to him after work. He opened it and looked at me with tears in his eyes and said, "are you serious?!" 
we were so happy!!
We told our families that weekend.
