I have a little announcement... | LOVELY LITTLE RANTS

I have a little announcement...


^ this is for sure the better picture of the two pictures we got because you can see the whole side angle of baby! That head, nose, and little body. GUYS, ahh!!!


We are having a baby!!!!!!!!!!!!

Baby is due August 5th and we are stoked (and scared) but mostly stoked!! We found out the beginning of December and it has literally been THE hardest thing keeping it a secret. I blame baby for my lack of blogging because can you imagine the biggest thing in your life being a secret that you can't exactly talk about yet?!

Yeah, it sucked keeping a secret! I wanted to tell every single person I came in contact with (and I may have let it slip on purpose a few times because I'm so excited) I am officially 13 weeks and 3 days. We wanted to wait till I was in the "safe zone" to tell the world our news!! I am already chubby (as Jason lovingly calls me fatty hahaha but it's in love and teasing I promise) I have been storing up posts with other pregnant topics I want to document so those are coming soon!! We feel very blessed,  grateful, and excited to be growing our first little babe!

xoxo
Candace

  3. Candace, I can't even tell you how happy and excited I am for you! I feel like this was the biggest surprise of my life lol. No wonder you were so quiet! I don't know if I could keep that a secret. 13 weeks is a looooong time. I seriously cannot believe you are PREGNANT!! WHAT!!? I don't even need to tell you this, but you are going to be the greatest Mom ever. The best. That little guy or girl is going to the luckiest little person alive. I can't wait to watch your journey. Please though, you must blog more. I need to know everything! oooooooo (Pretend those are real hugs!!)

    1. Seriously thank you so much for the 10th time, that means so much!!! It was seriously SO HARD to blog about stuff cause half of it would be "we did this and I was feeling sick because I have a human being growing inside of my body currently" Like even when I blogged about the massages, I couldn't say how one big reason I couldn't relax is because I couldn't even lay on my stomach because I'm pregnant and so that made it really hard to be comfortable. But now I can be an open book finally!! ahhhhhh!! (pretend those are real hugs too!! haha) :) xo

  4. So stinking exciting! I kinda had a hunch because of something you said the other day and your absence on the blog (believe me I know how hard it is to keep the secret haha)!

    1. Thank you!!! What did I say the other day? haha it has been so hard not to slip or always say "well I was sick today" because that would totally make it obvious!! Fingers crossed we win the milk snob covers!

  20. Good afternoon:
    I am Dr. Bertha Canal, and I am a world famous OB/GYN. I stumbled upon this post by complete accident, but since I'm here, I thought I would give you my professional, highly valuable, and accurate opinion. I have received advanced medical training from the prestigious Paris Institute of Ultra Sounds, from which I have been taught to analyze ultra sound pictures. Having observed the pictures in this post, you may be interested to know that this child is actually waving to you and giving the Hawaiian "Hang Loose" symbol. I have also observed, through the use of highly sensitive and technical medical equipment I have here in my office in London, that this child will be ridiculously good-looking, owed in large part to the genetic contribution of the maternal grandfather.
    Sincerely,
    Dr. Bertha Canal
    World Famous OB/GYN
