Funny Reaction

I just have to share the best reaction story so far...

Tyson and I decided to share the BIG news with our friends Jeff and Jaime before we left for our cruise. We figured it would be a dead giveaway when I didn't drink while we were on vacation. We stayed in New Orleans for one night before boarding the ship and decided to tell them at dinner. Here is how the conversation went (more or less):

Kady: So, when will you guys be able to come visit us in Detroit?

Jeff and Jaime: Maybe October...

Kady: Yeah, that would be fun...but do you think you could come in February or March?

Jeff: Why would we want to come in the middle of winter?

Kady: If you come in February, you can meet a new Becker!


Jaime caught on right away and quickly informed him that I was referring to a baby. It was very funny and proof that Jeff definitely needs a pup of his own! :)

9 weeks

I am officially 9 weeks into my pregnancy and things are going great! I had an appointment on June 15th and all was well with the baby! I was measuring a bit behind (but I knew I would be). The baby had a heartbeat of 150 beats per minute and in the ultrasound picture, was standing on his/her head.  My new due date is January 26th! 

Tyson and I took a cruise last week with our friends Jeff and Jaime (IU friends). We had a wonderful and relaxing time! Despite a sunburn - Tyson also enjoyed his 28th birthday and his first Father's Day. :) 

We are looking forward to sharing the news with our friends and family VERY soon!
