BIG NEWS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

JR and I would like to ANNOUNCE that we are having a BABY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

yep! you read right!! We are going to be mommy and daddy in early August!! It is official folks! We are so excited to share the amazing news with you! I even have some pictures to show you of our lil cutie!!

Profile of Baby P---we're thinking it has the same shaped lil head and pug nose daddy had when he was a baby :) We are so in love with this precious face.


Full body shot! Very relaxed growing inside mommy...


Our experience seeing Baby P today was so neat, and one of the most special moments we have ever had together. When the sonographer first got a look, Baby looked like he/she was enjoying a nap---arms behind the head, legs kicked up....when the Dr. came in for the next peek, Baby was none too pleased to have been woken up and was rolling around kicking some baby feet!!! I just had tears as we sat in awe of this tiny little baby making itself at home inside mommy.

On the nap view, I thought Baby would take after mommy but once it got rollin' and goin' I quickly realized it may look just like daddy and have his energy too!! I'm in for it!! ha! My dream always was to have a baby that looked just like JR---looks like I may get that cuteness!!

I am supposed to be 12 wks exactly today, but measured 12 wks/2 days---so we are on schedule to meet Baby P in early August!!!!

We feel blessed beyond words, and cannot stop talking about our sweet Baby. We say our prayers daily for a healthy, growing baby, and today we got a tiny peek at our little miracle :)

Happiness doesn't even cover it!! Joyful, thankful, blessed, you name it. We feel it.

We're having a BABY!!!!! YAY! YAY! YAY!

Awesome stuff! It definitely starts to seem more real after seeing the pics. I'm proud and happy at the same time, and Holly and I will definitely keep the Pettijohn's (including Baby P) in our prayers.

Let us know if you need anything at all.
