A little bean...

“Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body." ~Elizabeth Stone

We are very excited to announce that we're having a baby!! A little Ekern has been sprouting... and will enter the world when spring arrives (around April 26th)!

This amazing journey continues to be the most beautiful part of our lives. We are thankful that everything so far is going well and our little bean is healthy!

These first months of pregnancy have brought feelings of complete bliss and fear, along with many questions. But more than ever, it has brought feelings of excitement to become parents and start our family!

"The moment a child is born, a mother is also born." ~Rajneesh

We wanted to begin our journal with some pictures of Chris and I as little ones with our amazing mothers...

"Pregnancy is an important rite of passage for a woman, and it deserves to be celebrated. You are joining your mother, her mother, her mother, and so creating life."
