"little's" first ultra sound

Hello friends!

For those of you who don't know, Andy and I will be expecting our second child sometime around May 1, 2011. We are both super, super excited. At first, I was feeling a little overwhelmed, even though this is what I've been wanting. Our children will be about 20 months apart. Andy and I planned on starting the "trying" process when Avery turned a year old. So, we were just a month ahead of schedule. ha! 

Today we had our first ultra sound of our "little". Andy, Avery, and I waited anxiously patiently in the ultra sound room, getting excited every time someone walked past the door, in hopes it was our turn. Avery was itching to get down, walk around, and pull on the cords of the ultra sound machine. But, she stopped in her tracks when she heard that loud whoosh whoosh whoosh of the heart beat.

Doc said everything looked great. "Little's" heart rate was going strong at 158! Avery's first heart rate was 170, so does this mean "little" is a boy?! Either way, we're blessed. :)

And... since I can't post without pictures of my girl, here you go.

The Story of Us

2 years ago today, I married my love, the father of my future children, and my best friend. Here is the story of us:

Andy and I met through mutual friends. The night I laid my eyes on him, I came home and told my mother that I'd met my husband. I told her, I'd give him 6 months to ask me out (ha!). It took a couple weeks, and we haven't slowed down since. We met in Dec 07', became a couple in Jan 08', engaged in May 08', married in Sept 08', and had our first child in Sept 09'. We don't waste anytime. Ha!

Here are some of my favorite moments from our special day 2 years ago.

And then there was this...

I couldn't get his ring on.

Made for a good laugh though.

Introducing Mr. & Mrs. Andrew Caudill
(I was a little excited. ha!)

Two years. Wow. Sometimes though, it feels like it's been longer... in a good way. My life before Andy came around, seems so long ago.  And, now we have this...

I couldn't ask for more.
