Our Little Shooter

Yep, you read that correctly! A little version of us (scary huh?!?) is joining our family around the end of this year!

We have really enjoyed being a “single” couple over our marriage thus far, but we figured it’s about time for a new little family member. Our parents and siblings seemed ready far sooner than we were…they became very encouraging shortly after our wedding! (Of course, our families like to joke around quite a bit too, so we THINK some of it was in good fun – at least for the first two years!)

It may not show yet that we’re expecting, but the little one has already started affecting my diet. Other than always being hungry (more than usual), starting our baby purchases, and seeing our little one on an ultra sound, it is hard to imagine that our lives will completely change in the coming months. But we are excited for the change and the next step in life.

So to answer a few questions that are burning a

  • Boy or Girl? We wouldn’t tell even if we were going to find out!
  • When will he/she join us? Late December. (See photo.)
  • Little Shooter? Let’s be honest…we like our shooting sports & hobbies: target shooting, photo shooting, basketball, soccer…and running (not a shooting sport, but still!) Do we expect the kid to do all or any? Nope…but doesn’t mean we won’t try!

Now we just have until the end of this year to enjoy the last bit of excessive “just us” time before we welcome our new little shooter! But, we still like to enjoy life, so I don’t see our child-like energy disappearing just yet, children or not!_DSC7926 Our Little Shooter.web
