Dear Peanut,
  We went to the doctor last week and heard your little heart beat! It was 170bpm…the doctor said wow you got yourself a fast one. The old wives tale says a fast heart beat says you are a girl….but I guess we will just have to wait and see!! It was so exciting hearing your heartbeat….I couldn’t stop smiling all day! Your daddy was so excited but then he said “Oh boy, I already have myself one girl I don’t know if I can handle another one.” We will love you no matter what!! I am so thankful for you already.  You are a blessing that we don’t deserve!  We got a couple of our baby pictures blown up to put in your nursery. We just can’t wait to see what you look like!! Keep growing peanut!!
                                                Love, mom

Dear peanut,
  You have sure been making me hungry lately!  A lot of people have found out about you recently. They all seem pretty excited! Your daddy and I have been talking more about names, and we have absolutely no idea how we will ever decide on one!! Good thing you won’t be here for awhile. We are going to the doctor in a couple days. I sure hope we will hear your little heart beat! Praying for you peanut.

Dear kiddo,
         Your old man is falling apart buddy. Don’t get old. It really blows. We went to Wyoming last week and you experienced snow for the first time. Hope you liked it. Your mom has been cooking a lot of really good food lately, which has been awesome. I think it’s because of you, so your making my life better already. Haha. You’re starting to show in your mom’s tummy. It makes us both pretty excited to see you. People are starting to find out about you so we’re not the only ones that are excited about you. Take it easy bud, don’t do anything crazy.
                                                                       
                                                                        Love,
                                                                        Dad

Dear Peanut,
  I had a dream you were here last night peanut.  It felt so real…I just can’t wait to hold you in my arms! You are growing so much. Daddy says you are starting to make me show. He calls you kiddo now and claims you are a boy…how typical! I went shopping this weekend and looked at lots of baby stuff. It almost makes me crazy and impatient for you to get here, but I know it’s best for you to keep growing! I love you peanut. I’m praying you grow up and fall in love with Jesus….can’t wait to tell you about Him!

Dear Peanut,
  This week we got to watch your daddy wrestle. He did so good, but I get sooo nervous watching him. Hope I didn’t get you too excited! We are starting to tell more people about you. Not everyone knows yet but they will once you get a little bigger.  I’m getting more and more excited for you to come. It’s starting to feel more real! Love you peanut!
Love, Ma

Dear Peanut,
  You are growing more and more each week. This week you have made me crave a lot of tacos….hope you liked them.  We went to the doctor this week and still could not hear your heartbeat you must be pretty tiny or playing hide-and-seek or something. Everything seems to be going well with you though.  You got to ride in a combine for the very first time, and I’m sure you will have many more rides to come!  Keep growing!

Dear Peanut,
  You must be growing because you are making me really sick.  I hope you like gold fish crackers and Sprite. Apparently, you went from the size of a blueberry last week to a raspberry this week.  You are still very tiny! Your dad is dieting for wrestling so it is really challenging for him to eat less and me to eat more.  We finally got a doctor appointment scheduled for next week. I just can’t wait to see you! Keep growing peanut!

Dear Peanut,
I can hardly believe I just found out about you a week and a half ago. I was so happy! You should have seen how happy your dad was! One of the first things your dad said was that you’re going to watch a lot of football that Saturday…and you did! It is fun to go places and me and your dad are the only ones who know about you! You are our little secret. Your dad has said he loves you very much already. Keep growing peanut!
                                                      Love, Ma

The day we found out


We were so excited and shocked to say the least!! It was a Saturday morning and I pretty much couldn't believe it. We had a great day making caramel apples and watching the NE football game. Mike said that morning that our kiddo would be watching a lot of football and he was very right!

About me


I am Shelby and I married my husband Mike about a year ago. We live in Kearney and I work at a physical therapy clinic and Mike goes to school at UNK right now. Mike has recently decided to give wrestling a try, so our lives are very busy this time of year.  We have some exciting news that definitely took us for a surprise...we are expecting our first kiddo in May of 2011. I will try to catch you up with some pictures and notes to our little peanut.
