I'm not sure who has or hasn't had a chance to check out my latest YouTube video, and it includes a small element of surprise... so if you like that kind of thing, check it out before you read on! :)
But yeah... huge news for us! Tyler and I have been so excited about this, and we are blown away by the kindness you have expressed in response to our video. I mean, I knew I had some of the nicest viewers ever, but the love you've shared has just really touched us both. There have been so many sweet stories in the comments section about your own motherhood experiences and what the next 6 months will be like for us, and just so much encouragement and positivity. "Thank you" doesn't seem to cut it in this situation... all I can say is that I love and value you SO much. Anytime you share your kindness with me and "let your light shine", as I like to say, it inspires me to do the same. Thank you for letting me into your lives and accepting me and my family with open arms! Oh and I love how people are using the hashtag #babybroadcast -- it's so funny because I didn't even mention it in the video, but my family and I were joking about #babybroadcast after I found out I was pregnant!
I made this little pic to share as a pregnancy announcement along with the video! Had to take a crack at Tyler's height! :) He's 6'6" and I'm 5'0"... it's the first thing most people point out when they see us together! And of course we had to include Miss Cupcake!
So what comes next? I've had so many requests for some pregnancy update vlogs, and I do plan to do those on my vlog channel, BeautyVlogcast. In fact, I think I'll do one this week just getting you all up to speed on our situation- we've got 13 weeks to cover, so there's a lot to share! I thought I could give a little bit of a backstory on our lives & when hopes for a baby came into the picture. What else should I talk about? Symptoms? Cravings? Doctor appointments? When we're finding out if it's a boy or girl?How often do you want to see update vlogs? As you can see, I need your help!! :) I've noticed a lot of people asking how my family reacted when we told them :) Maybe I'll get mom on the phone and re-enact it! haha :) I told her the very MORNING I found out... couldn't hold it in!!
On TheBump.com you can make little pregnancy tickers to show your progress... I thought I'd put mine on here! :) Baby is the size of a peach now, but on Wednesday I'll move on to the next fruit! Not sure how accurate all this size stuff is, but it's entertaining for me to keep track of! :)
- Happy St. Patrick's Day!!! Are you wearing green? Tyler tried to pass off turquoise as green today, so therefore, he was pinched.
- Today's Beauty Broadcast Express video involves a green product & a mini tutorial!
- Ate a bunch of fresh fruit earlier... there is nothing like juicy pineapple!
- Mom went to the dentist today (in my hometown- population 1,200 :) and she said everyone in the office knew the big news! Word travels fast- especially in a small town!
