Yep, that's right! My husband and I are expecting our first child! We are so excited -- more than words can say. We've had two miscarriages this past year, so seeing a healthy baby at our 12-week ultrasound was amazing! And check out this 3D picture:
A little alien-looking, yes, but still cute! To announce my big news at work, I hung this by our time clock:
If you can't read it, it says, "I might wear pink, I might wear blue. My mommy's a teacher. Do you know who?"
And to announce to my family, I sent an e-mail that said, "Dan and I have been doing some remodeling again. What do you think?" And then I attached these photos to the e-mail:
 
Neither of those is my current stomach. For the first one I was sucking in and for the second one I was puffing out. I'm somewhere in the middle. Anyway, our baby is due March 8th! Sorry this post isn't about a real craft, but I thought some of you might like to know!

Congratulations to both of you. I also had a miscarriage so I know how exactly you felt. I truly believe things happen for a reason the good Lord has a plan for each of us. I went on to have two beautiful sons. You guys are going to be an awesome Mother and father. Also please tell your husband thank you very much for his courageous service to our country. My husband was in the USAF for 21 years and has since retired. I just love your blog. My preschoolers just love all the ideas I get from your site. Keep up the good work, you truly inspire us all. God Bless. Mrs. Valerie of Happy Days Preschool in CA
