you can tell?!

I walked to the mailbox today, and my across the street neighbor yelled out, "You have a bump! Oh my goodness!"

It's the first time that someone who didn't already know I was pregnant knew I was pregnant. It made me smile. Every step of this journey makes me so excited.

bump pictures

I have been taking pictures, but I'm not sure there's a ton to see yet. I really think I'm starting to get bigger now.... so hopefully the next round of pictures will be more distinct.
Here is 13 weeks:
Here is 14 weeks:
Here is 15 weeks:
Here is 16 weeks (although this shirt hides it more than the others):
So excited and thankful for growth and progress and health and a belly. :)

some firsts

I have had some exciting firsts lately:
-I bought my first maternity pants. They are much comfier on my tumtum, but they kind of fall down right now. I'm sure I'll grow into them...
-I received my first gift for baby! A sweet friend in my Bible study gave me a Bible storybook. What a great first gift for our little lovie!
-I bought a Doppler and have been listening to baby's heart beating away every couple of days or so.
-We saw ACU play at Cowboys Stadium!
-We are about to replace all of our carpet, and this is one of the most daunting tasks we have faced as homeowners. It rather overwhelms me. It's the first time we have made this kind of purchase for our home. It's scary!

I have lots of pictures of almost all of the above, but I've been too busy/tired/whatever to post them yet. But get excited. They exist and will be posted soon... :)

My current state is no longer a secret at the office, but I am doing my best to be as "normal" (or how ever normal I am anyway), so I don't talk too much about it.

Well, apparently a girl I work with noticed my not-so-flat stomach and asked a coworker if I was pregnant. My coworker informed her that I was.

Today at lunch, the girl who noticed my stomach congratulated me... and then said, "I was afraid to ask because I wasn't sure if you were pregnant or just REALLY bloated."
