new beginnings: having a baby and starting a blog

I (Val) am 16 weeks along now with Adam and I's first baby! Its been an exciting 16 weeks and we thought it would be good to blog along the way-  We are new to this whole blogging world so if you have a blog to share please let us know:)
Everything in my pregnancy seems to be going well so far and we are getting really excited to find out the sex of the baby in a few weeks. I am through my 1st trimester, so a lot of the sickness has slowed down and I am feeling like I have a lot more energy. So far I have really enjoyed being pregnant, and my little baby bump seems to be growing with the day:) 

It has brought us a lot of joy living with expectancy every day for the life growing inside me. It is such a miracle, and I feel blessed to have the chance to soon be someone's mommy!  Sure we are super excited, but we also feel the weight of this great responsibility and are praying that God would continue to shape us into the parents and people He wants us to be. 

Here's the most recent picture of my growing tummy:

Hey! I just wrote you a comment, but I don't think it posted. I'll summarize: you are beautiful! you are so helpful! you are going to be a wonderful mother! you already are! my whole family loves you! (and you too, Adam -- and thanks for posting a pic of your wife-- you know I love pics -- by the way, if my original comment ever posts, you'll find I used that "joke" both times -- I liked it).
