It’s A Girl!!

The news is out!! Yesterday morning we got to find out that the sweet babe growing inside of me is a little girl! Honestly, I am still in shock and there is a huge part of me that doesn’t believe it!! I keep staring at the ultrasound images we got trying to figure out if it’s really a for sure thing. Especially with it being so early, it just seems crazy that they were able to tell us our gender at only 13 weeks

My First Trimester + Q&A

As my first trimester comes to a close, (that is crazy by the way!! I swear you blink and it’s over!), I’ve started to reflect on the changes I’ve gone through and what I’ve personally experienced. I know everyone’s pregnancies are SO different, but I wanted to share mine so far and some of the struggles and things that have helped me! Warning: this is going to be a very long post AND have a Q&A at the end so brace yourself…

How We Told Our Family I’m Pregnant (video!)

Well…I’m sure that by now all of you know that Al and I are expecting our first baby Lang!! We found out in the middle of the night…at about 12:30am and the next day I knew I had to tell our immediate family – I could’t keep it in! I’m so thankful that my husband supports and deals with my eagerness  Our best friends found out they were pregnant actually on the same exact day we found out but last year, and they got everyone’s reactions on video! I always thought that was so special to have and to be able to look back on so since seeing their videos I always knew I wanted to do the same when we got pregnant…

We’re Having A Baby!!

I can’t believe I am finally typing this out and telling all of you this HUGE secret that we’ve been keeping!! BABY LANG IS COMING!  Our sweet bundle of joy will be coming into the world in May 2019! I am just about 11 and a half weeks along and we found out about 7 weeks ago! We have prayed for this baby for so long now, and I have dreamt about my children and who they are going to be for my whole life…I just can’t wait to meet him/her. What a miracle and answered prayer this is. We feel so blessed that God chose us to be this baby’s mommy and daddy.

What I Would Tell My High School Self

Drama, good friends, not so good friends, boys, maybe questioning your faith, homework, fitting in, rumors, insecurities, getting involved – sound familiar? Like your present or past? Or maybe you’re only 14 and reading this and these are what your worries are that lie ahead as you enter your new school’s walls this upcoming year? This post is going to be really honest and raw. With that may come judgement, but please remember and respect that it is challenging to write about topics online and in front of the world before you comment. Despite potential judgement though, these are the types of things that need to be talked about and used to inspire…
