AUGUST: Maternity pictures were taken, WE MOVED into the house with the white picket fence, had a crazy family reunion, our washing machine flooded our kitchen, we unpacked, and my stomach was HUGE!


SEPTEMBER: My grandpa passed away, finished painting the nursery furniture, had a pink baby shower, my due date passed, I showed you the house, we waited (not-so) patiently for baby, I was induced, and BAM we had a baby! Our greatest adventure together.
