Uncle Kody's Wedding

This weekend we once again travelled away from Charleston. This time we went to NC to be a part of Kody and Chelsea's wedding. We were both in the wedding party and a little concerned about the fact that I would be standing for so long outside with it being very hot out!
The day before the wedding Courtney and I went to lunch and then sat at Starbucks for a few hours and then we went to dinner with the wedding party and by the end of the night my feet and ankles were a little swollen. This made me a little worried for the next day since I knew I would be standing a lot. But luckily I worried for nothing! It was hot but I didn't have any problems and I was not the bridesmaid to almost pass out so I was happy!
The wedding ceremony was beautiful! Kody and Chelsea did a great job putting a lot of thought and time into their ceremony and what they wanted said and done!
I will try and post pictures from the wedding later but they are still on my camera for now!
Oh and Aunt Courtney also got to feel baby Konnor kick finally (even though she was convinced he hated her for the first day and a half because he wasn't kicking when she would ask).

It's a Boy

Hello everyone!  I don't know if everyone remembers but when we moved to Charleston the first time almost 6 years ago I thought it would be a good idea to start a blog to keep friends and family up to date with what was going on in our lives.  I know some of you read it and others looked at it occasionally and eventually I just forgot about it and stopped posting anything haha. 
Well I thought it might be a good time to try and do another blog!  Since Korey and I are expecting our first child this November I thought it might be fun to do a blog to keep friends and family updated on what is going on with us and the little one.  Korey and I decided together for many different reasons that we would try to do our best to keep stuff about our pregnancy off of Facebook for as long as we possibly can.  We know eventually there will probably be some picture or comment that gets on there and the secret will be out, but for now we like it the way it is.  We were able to make sure all our close friends and our family knew the news and we like knowing that the people closest to us and that care about us the most are sharing this wonderful secret with us!  Since we aren't posting news and pictures on Facebook though a lot of you I'm sure are curious about what is going on, or maybe you're not and I'm just doing this blog for my own enjoyment and as something else to do to fill my time :)
Since I'm starting this later in our pregnancy I'm sure there are a lot of things I could write and update everyone on, but most of you already know all the important information.  Right now as of today we are at 24 weeks!  It's hard to believe we are already over half way.  The time seems to be flying by which is exciting and scary! :)  We found out a couple weeks ago that we are having a little baby boy :)  Everything looked good at the ultrasound which made us even more happy!  Although Korey was definitely rooting for a boy we were both happy just to know we were having a healthy baby.
I don't want this post to end up being so long I bore everybody so I think that is all I will post for now.  I'll try and keep up with this and share stuff that is going on with us and the baby! 

So we have definitely gotten behind but these are the 3 pictures we took starting from the first month to the third.  We were slackers during the 4th months and actually forgot to take a picture.  I do have one for month 5 though haha.
