I wanted to say a HUGE thank you for all of the sweet comments and kind words about our exciting news! Jon and I are so thrilled to be starting this new journey in our lives. I look forward to keeping you all posted as we continue through this journey. I posted a poll on the side of our blog that says "Is Baby Barrett a Boy or Girl." Take a second to vote for us, we would love to see what y'all think!

As of right now, I think the morning sickness has finally gone away! (THANK YOU LORD) But I am still utterly exhausted all of the time. I am sure standing on my feet for a good part of the day while I am doing hair, doesn't exactly help in that matter... but I am definitely looking forward to my energy level coming back as the weeks progress. Although I really can't complain... all of this tiredness is totally worth it at the end of the day!

I am craving all sorts of sweets and bad food! I never really eat a lot of sweets, so this is new to me. The other day I ate like 20+ Halloween candies in one sitting... which I paid for later with a sore stomach for the entire night! Lesson learned! But come on, can you blame me. Those little pieces of candy Heaven are so delightful after a long day of work.

Jon, me, and Baby Barrett are heading to Italy tomorrow with a couple of our friends. We are going to Cinque Terre to do a little hiking trip. Maybe all the hiking will help me not gain a gagillion pounds while I eat my weight in Italian food! Fingers crossed.

I'll be back next week with TONS of pictures and stories of our adventure!
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

And THANKS again for the sweet comments and prayers for a happy healthy pregnancy! We truly appreciate it.

Hmmm...well this year is a "girl year" - out of the dozen people I know who are having/have had babies this year, all but 2 have been girls. So next year is a boy year, so I'm saying, BOY!

You sound exactly like me! I have NEVER in my life had a sweet tooth, and all of a sudden I can't get enough sweets. It's the oddest thing!
