Happy as a Plum, Er I Mean, Clam

So today the baby is officially the size of a Plum! I've been trying to come up with clever titles all day, I thought of doing something with the game Clue and Professor Plum. Then I thought, "Duh, happy has a plum." Well I guess it's official, I have pregnancy brain! It's happy as a clam! Oops!! Although I hate to admit it, I have always had pregnancy brain since I was little. But now I might as well take advantage of an excuse!

Today is my birthday so we have two reasons to celebrate! I came home to pumpkin cheesecake from the husband and three birthday cards! I opened the first - It was from Shakespeare! The second was a VERY sweet card from Kurt. The third, from our future baby telling me I'm the best mom. Wow! I'm still smiling at the thought!

We truly are happy as a plum AND a clam right now! We're at 12 weeks - We are just about one third of the way through our pregnancy. We are both excited and nervous! In just 24-28 weeks we'll be in charge of another life. It's super thrilling and I am confident from our upbringings that we too will be great parents but it's still a bit nerve-wracking!

Thank you to all for the birthday wishes - I really appreciate the love you've sent my way!

Looking forward to another great week and we hope the same for all of you.

Lots of Love,
Tonya + Kurt
