Baby Short 2019!

Chris and I are 11 weeks pregnant today! It has been so hard keeping this secret because we are SO EXCITED! We have worked so hard to prepare for this time in our lives and now that it is happening everything just feels so sweet.

I am feeling a deep sense of gratitude for how hard we have worked to get to where we are financially, spiritually, and emotionally. We started our marriage categorically healthy but other areas of our life were suffering. We set out on a journey to sand the edges before we added another family member to our lives and as we near that time, I am profoundly thankful for the work we have put in. 

I remember writing in my journal on our wedding day that I couldn't wait to make Christopher a dad. It has been my dream for as long as I can remember. Chris is the most gentle, caring man I have ever met. He leads with compassion and understanding. He has been the most amazing husband and I can't wait to welcome someone else into the circle to be fully known and loved by him. 

We're due January 18th, 2019 and have a million things to iron out before that date but I could not be more excited to become a mom and welcome this little life into our home!
