Sister & Fiance

I took some great photos on easter of my dear little sister and her husband to be. Just wanted to share my favorites.


We had our 'big ultrasound' today where we got to watch the baby for a bit and get some great photos. Of course all of the major organs were checked out to be fine, and measurements were taken. The child is 9oz. which is right on target for how old it is. I am just about halfway through this pregnancy and I am enjoying being able to feel it move. No we did not find out what the gender is, which we could have done. The ultrasound tech was very good about keeping it a secret for us. Of course Joshua thinks he saw boy parts, but who knows, we will see for sure when the child is born. It was still early in the morning so it was not moving much for us and it opened its mouth real big like a yawn. I usually dont feel it moving till more like 10am. Wouldn't it be nice if it kept that schedule up.
I've been working on figuring out what all needs to be done to prepare and have started on fixing up the baby's room. I have made one of the two blankets that I have bought fabric for and have finished the curtains and painting the bookshelf. Next big thing is purchasing the crib and dresser that I have picked out. I am really liking how the circus theme is taking shape.

Here is a photo of the Braden side of the family on Easter. We went to two dinners that day, one at Aunt Heidi's with all of my Toney relatives and one at Mom and Dad T's house. Let's just say my buddah belly felt pretty large once the day was done. ;)

in the beginning

I have created a new blog to focus on our growing family! Joshua and I were married on 02.04.06 and started our life together quite well. We have a "furbaby", our cat Abby, that is quite the presence in our little family. We have gone through at least two jobs each, and are now living in our second home together. Our lives at the moment are filled with work, school, family, and friends. And of course now we have a new addition to our spectrum of experience and that is I am 4 months pregnant with our first child. Obviously, we have a ton of excitement and newness ahead and we cannot wait to embark on the most rewarding journey of our lives as a family, parenthood.
