Best Gift EVER

Alright, so I told you earlier this week how I couldn't decide what I wanted for my 30th birthday. Usually birthdays are SUCH A BIG DEAL to me and the fact that I didn't have a long list of present ideas was a little out of my character.

When Andi asked me in December what I wanted for my birthday, I could really only come up with one answer: I really, really, REALLY wanted to be pregnant. Oh, and also I want to celebrate my 30th in a place where flip flops doesn't mean frost bite.

My husband's so amazing he gave me both.

Meet our little baby ...

That's right ... I'M PREGNANT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Our little miracle is due to arrive on August 22, 2011 and we couldn't be more excited. 

While I've known about the pregnancy since late December, it's still the best birthday gift I've ever received. Mostly because, I couldn't think of anything else in this world I ever wanted more. And now that I am pregnant, there isn't a tangible item I can possibly think of wanting. I've never been so content and so at peace. 

Andi and I decided we weren't comfortable sharing the news publicly until 12 weeks so I started a new blog Baby In The Bubble where I'm documenting every step of this pregnancy. Follow along as I write about all things baby. And don't worry, I'll still write non-baby things here too.

God is good. Life is so good. 30's going to be an amazing year! 


  1. YAY! YAYAYAYAYAYAYAY! I THOUGHT so. I figured you wouldn't throw that choice out there the other day if it weren't the one.

    How are you feeling & doing? Want to do a pre-natal yoga class w/me at Blooma one weekend? Or hit up a maternity consignment store cause I am needing some new threads (my sister still has pretty much all my mat clothes...OOPS)?

    Congratulations, you two. Really exciting.

    PS - Funny that we are doing back-to-back San Diego/SoCal trips :) We leave on Tues-Sun.

  2. Yes, Yes, Yes! So excited to do preggo stuff with you! I'll message you on Facebook and we can figure out the details.

  3. I'm so happy for you Heather & Andi!! You're going to be a great mama!

  4. Oh, what a great gift! CONGRATULATIONS!!! You & Andi are going to be fantastic parents.

  5. ALRIGHT!!!!!!!!! WOOHOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!! Very happy for you. You will be a great mother.

  6. Yipee!!! I am so excited for the two of you : )

  7. Congratulations!!! I've been reading your blog for awhile now (found it through Navigating the Mothership, I think) and was hoping that was going to be your present. :)

  8. Thanks everyone! We're so excited for this little blessing :)
