Guess Who's Going to be Reading for Two...?



That's right, my friends. What our sweet Roma is trying to communicate to you all is that this chick right here is five months along and will be reading for two very soon. Actually, I'm already reading aloud to the little one (but sometimes I skip the scary parts if it's a Stephen King book). My husband and I will welcome our first baby, A BOY, in November. I cannot tell you how thrilled, nervous, and excited I am!


And here's the baby bump! This is a hockey house, and my husband just finished his game in the local league here in Virginia Beach. I'm sporting the Boston Bruins' maternity shirt he got me which has the hockey sticks shaped into a heart over the belly. Can you tell that we hope our little boy plays hockey when he gets older?

A special thank you to my incredibly talented sister for taking both photos and then doing all of her editing tricks to produce this one-of-a-kind announcement (I love the caption!). You can visit her at any of the below for her photo advice, children's portraiture, artistic shots, and more!

  21. I'm so happy for you and your family: the dog, the husband and the son to come. It is such a joy to have a boy, mine has blessed me for 22 years even though many of the last few we're traumatic high school moments! This is wonderful news to announce, and I'm so glad you shared it with us. Plus, add your beauty to your husband's handsomeness? What a blessed boy to be!

  24. I just saw a picture on Instagram and wondered how I missed the news. SO EXCITED FOR YOU!!!!!!!!!! Being a mom it's not always easy but it is the best. Congratulations to you and your husband. Roma will adjust. We couldn't find our lab the other morning and finally found her curled up in Elle's bedroom. She starts off at in our room at night so I had no idea she'd been sneaking away. I'm sure Roma will fall in love, too.
