We are so excited to be welcoming a new little Jones to our home on July 10th!

In April we will be celebrating our 4 year anniversary and preparing to move to who knows where. Cree has applied to 14 PhD programs all over the country—so everything is up in the air until March. That said, it just felt like the right time for us, and we're over the moon excited to begin preparing for our little one.

Since this is my first pregnancy, I've been fascinated along the way how my body just knows what to do to make way for the baby, and I have been so grateful for the advice and tips from family and friends.

Through all of the ups and downs that have come this first trimester, I'm so grateful for a sweet and supportive husband.  He's been a joy every step of the way. Cree is the one holding my hair each day while I battle to keep my food down. He's the one eating potatoes and popcorn (two of the few things that seem to stick), and taking over my share of chores when I don't have the energy. He always says, "We're such a good team," but I know it's him that makes us great.

We feel blessed and humbled with the privilege to bring new life into the world, and are so excited to meet our new little addition in July.
