Baby K is on the way!

That's right. a little more than 3 months down. and hopefully a little less than 6 months to go! Garrett and I couldn't be happier. We are expecting our first child (although Hadley could definitely be considered a child) this coming November. This is a dream come true for both of us as we have always wanted a family together. We found out on St. Patrick's day that we were expecting - so St. Patrick's day definitely has a new meaning for us, other than just 'the green beer day". We've had four doctor's appointments now, and each time we feel so blessed. After three different doctor's we've finally decided on THE ONE. Relief. We are tentatively due on November 27, but have been told that our due date will move to November 19. The sooner the better. I can't wait to meet Baby K! We've decided not to find out the gender of the baby, so that's definitely keeping us on our toes! I think it will be one of the best surprises ever! So, for now, you can cast your prediction on the blog.. Boy or Girl? Only time will tell! This also means the basement has a 'due date'. So, this fall should be an exciting time around the Konen household! For now, while Garrett works on the basement, I've been spending my time designing the baby room and reading baby name books (if you can call that reading). I'm obsessed with names, so this will be a task for sure. So, for now enjoy the baby 'bump' pictures below! We're growing, and we LOVE it! We are so blessed.
