And the Adventure Begins......

Welcome to the first blog post of the growing Wade family. We aren't just growing because we returned from an Alaskan cruise yesterday and each meal contained 5 courses. We are growing because there is a little Wade on the way, due to make his or her appearance on or around 12/23/10. This tiny bundle of joy will add itself to the long list of family members who also have a birthday the week of Christmas: mom (12/29), Grandma Cooper (12/27) and Grandma Wade (12/25).
Needless to say, we are absolutely thrilled and petrified at the thought of bringing a baby into the world. We just hope and pray the Cooper-Wade genetic makeup is a fruitful one. We know with 100% certainty that this baby will have long legs and a sense of humor most satisfied by very cheesy jokes. The rest is a mystery.

So far the 'little nugget' as I like to call it has grown from being the size of a grape to a lime to a medium sized shrimp this week. We are rounding out the last few days of the first trimester, and I am feeling great. I decided to wait until the morning sickness, etc subsided before I started the blog. No one wants to read a pregnant woman's complaints. Please enjoy the first picture. We will update often.

This is grape size at 9 weeks. We are at 13.5 weeks now. Thanks for sharing in our joy. Heather and Mike
