livin’ the dream

No, really, this is a dream of mine. I am preparing for our baby! Ah! I can’t even believe I’m finally saying those words. I am in awe. I’m in awe of this process, our journey, and most of all, my God.

We registered today!!! And we bought the stroller travel system!!! Very excited, to put it mildly. To say that I’ve been waiting on this day is a huge understatement. I have been wanting to prepare for a baby to come into our home for 5 years now. To be here is just unreal.

When the women told me congratulations before we started “shooting” things with a gun, I thought to myself… well she thinks I have a baby in my belly. I didn’t even think about correcting her, because get this…. I am expecting, just not in my belly! πŸ™‚ I’m PAPER PREGNANT! {{{More on that later}}}

The Lord’s plans are better than we can even imagine and I am all up in the middle of it.

I wanted to share some pictures of some things we got today and some things that were on my heart, obviously. {see above}
