We have big news!

Okay, if you haven't heard (and if you couldn't tell by the countdown at the top of the blog)...we're pregnant! We found out via home pregnancy test at the end of May, the weekend we traveled to Texas for Grant's graduation. We wanted to wait to tell our immediate family until we received the blood test results (the test was positive, of course!). After we told our parents and brothers and sister, we decided to wait to tell the rest of the world until I was at least eight weeks along and we had our first ultrasound. Well, I'm nine weeks along and we had our first ultrasound on Monday, and all is well! Here are a couple of pictures of our little shrimp cocktail...

The ultrasound was a lot of fun, as we were able to hear the strong heartbeat (180 beats per minute) and even see it move a little (which is great for only being 8-and-a-half weeks old)! Also, before the ultrasound I thought it was a girl; now, after seeing it, I think it's a boy (for no reason in particular). Stay tuned...
