Exciting news!

The Murphy family is expanding! We've waited a little longer than normal to spread the news, but we are so excited to tell everyone that Sloan will be a big sister come August!
Sarah has graciously offered to do a maternity series shoot for us and I am SO looking forward to our weekly shots! We met today for the first time and here is the outcome, along with the letter I wrote to our Little One:
Dear Little One, your Daddy, big sister and I are all so excited to add you to our family – we already know you’ll be a great addition. Sloan can’t wait to meet you and kisses you through my belly daily. We’ve decided to wait until your birthday to find out if you are a boy or girl, but Sloan is adamant that you are a tiny baby boy! You are the size of a lemon this week...but seeing as your sister already stretched things out in there for you, it looks to me like you are the size of a melon with the way my belly has grown so far! I think I’ve felt you move a few times already – I love that feeling and can’t wait until it becomes a regular thing! The middle of the night trips to the bathroom have started already, but the need to nap daily has passed thankfully! We love you so much already Little One!

  2. YAY YAY YAY!!! This is wonderful news!!!! And now it begins!! Truly so very happy for you. Your picture is unbelievably gorgeous!! Can't wait to see the next shots.

  3. Aw! I teared up here after reading this - you have such a way with words :). Jon and I are so happy for you all and can't wait to meet your new little one - August couldn't come sooner! I think it might be a boy too, not sure why! I can't wait to see the weekly pictures - you look fabulous already with your tiny baby bump! Love you guys xo L and J
