While many have speculated about this, we wanted to wait until after the first trimester to officially confirm that we are expecting our first child. This is truly the most joyous time in our lives and we are excited to share the happy news and start our family.

After her honeymoon pics were released, I had second-guessed that she was preggers. I’m still not quite sure how that belly seemed to disappear on her vacation.
