My sweet friend, Ashley, has talked me into starting a blog. Chad and I are expecting our first child, thus far known simply as "Peanut" in March, so mostly this blog will be about my pregnancy and our experiences over the next several months as we prepare for our new arrival. Who knows, maybe we'll even do something fun that someone else will care to read about! This is our first picture of Peanut, taken at our first doctor's visit last week. I am about 11 weeks pregnant, with a due date of March 17.
