No offense but, my baby is cuter than your baby

baby #1 / pregnancy / wedded bliss

babyOh my goodness, I am so smitten. We got to see our baby again for the 12 week check up and oh my sweet potato pie, it has the most adorable little profile I ever did see. It was so cute, squirming all around, kicking its lil leggies and *my favorite* arching its little back. Sigh. I honestly thought they were just going to check the heartbeat otherwise we would have taken a video, but we were blown away by how developed it looked already. We saw little fingers and everything! The doctor said baby is not shy at all so I hope he/she stays that way and doesn’t have to deal with people telling him/her how veryyyy shyyyy he/she is his/her whole life ;) Not that I had to deal with that or anything… Also, knowing the gender will help with the fluidity of these sentences :) 

In other news, happy birthday blog!! I’m so happy I started this little thing a year ago because just lookit all that has happened!
We moved from this place to this place.
We received this bundle of terror, I mean joy.
I got to go to Indiana for the first time and see where my love grew up!
We celebrated one whole year of marriage — almost one and a half! : )
There were parties, and exploring, and food finding, and trips galore and most importantly, baby came into our lives and we couldn’t be more thankful. What a great year! Thanks for following along with our little ol life : )

In honor of such an occasion, here are:
