8-12 Weeks!

February 6, 2017

The last few weeks have been incredibly difficult and there is no way I would have been able to get through them without my family & their gracious help with Carter. This morning sickness has been no joke and my husband has been the greatest human on the planet. From making dinners, to watching carter at night, to cleaning up the house, he has been so helpful and I am so grateful! This last month has gone by so slow! It seems like we should be way farther along, but we are so anxious and excited for August to come! Only 28 weeks left to go and the countdown is on.
