Nursery Pics

Please don’t hate me! I know I promised a LONG time ago to post some finished nursery pics…as you can see I never did. Most of you have probably already seen these from facebook. We had some of our great friends and awesome photographers come take pictures of Leah when she was 12 days old. They also took some amazing pics of her nursery…so without further adieu…

13 weeks…I’ve graduated!

I am officially 13 weeks. Yes…I’ve graduated into my 2nd trimester! Woo hoo! No more queseyness…(well maybe a little more). Adam and I went to our 3rd doctor’s appt. this past Monday for my 1st Trimester screening. The nurse took some pictures (which I’ll post at the end) and I got some blood taken. She told us that as far as she can tell with the pictures, everything looks great, but we won’t know for sure until my bloodwork comes back. We go back next Wednesday to get all the results.

While she was taking the ultrasound, she needed to get a specific picture, but low and behold…our baby was sound asleep! She even poked around on my stomach to see if she could wake him/her up…no such luck! I guess that could be a good thing when they come into this world! So most of the pictures you’ll see, the baby is sleeping!

I’ve pretty much gotten out of being quesey feeling all the time. The only time I feel bad is when I wait too long to eat. The tiredness is still there and I’ve had people tell me that it only gets worse! I’ll be starting back work in a couple weeks, so I guess we’ll see how it goes…pray for Adam!

Our little baby is so cute already (maybe I’m a little biased)! I’ll leave you with a few pictures of Baby Hamilton…

Long time…BIG news!

First of all, my apologies for abandoning this blog! I guess you could say there was a drought, famine, or whatever you want to call it on the “2 are better than 1” blog. Anyway, my last post was Memorial Day and there has been a lot going on since then.

Let’s see if I can sum up…Adam and I went to the beach with my family for a week. It was the first time in probably 12 years that I have been down with my side of the family and we had a blast. Adam discovered his love of fishing thanks to my Uncle Drenner and his boat. P1030665
When we got back, Adam’s dad, my dad and I entered a 5k on a golf course. Hard stuff. Anyway, it turns out that I won 1st Female overall and Adam’s dad won 3rd in his age group! It was his first race he’d ever run…congrats Dad #2! I’ll post pics later…

The last week in June we got to go to the beach again with Adam’s family. This was my 4th year going with them (I think) and I always love going down there. We rent a house at Ocean Isle with about 12 of his other family members and it’s one trip that I look forwad going on every year! I’ll post pics later for that too…

I’ve saved the biggest news of the summer for last…drum roll please…
On June 10th, 2009, Adam and I found out that we are expecting!! Yes, it is true, I am currently 9 weeks pregnant! People have asked us, “did you plan it?, was it a surprise?”, well…let’s just say God’s timing is perfect and He knows what He’s doing! It actually works out pretty good…I’m due February 12th, 2010 and will be out for so many weeks, then I won’t have long until I get to stay home with the baby for the summer! Adam and I both are truly excited about this new chapter that has begun in our lives. There will be some changes, but change is always good…right? Now, I am new at this…obviously…so check back because I may have questions, wonderings, and comments for all you moms out there to help me out with! Until then, I’ll leave you with our first pictures of our little gummy bear!

We are truly excited to see what God as blessed us with. Please keep us in your prayers as well as our little one! I’m sure I’ll be posting a lot more in the coming months with updates and such…so be sure to check back!

PS: (It feels good to have finally gotten that secret out!)

My Sister-in-law and my 1 1/2 year old niece and 3 month old nephew are in town until tomorrow and yesterday we went to the park to take some family pictures. My brother is over seas and they are going to send some to him for Father’s day and his birthday. So here are just a few…I had so much fun!















Ok, so I know there were more than a few…but I couldn’t choose! Enjoy!
