It’s clean, I promise. haha.

If you have heard us refer to our little baby as chip, here is why…

(drum roll please:)

When I told my husband I was pregnant, my app let us know the baby was the size of a chocolate chip.

We did not want to tell everyone right away, because I wanted to be able to share it with family personally before they could hear it from some else. Mainly because I wanted to see their reaction, but also when you live six hours away you just want all the hugs you can get from excited-to-see-you family members back home.

Chip became code word for our little one, and even all the siblings would chime in, “how is chip?”  It worked perfect, just sounding like we were talking about a mutual friend or family member.

As baby grew, he/she became the size of a blueberry, a jelly bean, a green olive, and is now the size of an apple. But none of those clicked quite like chip did.

So our little one is nicknamed chip.

We will continue to refer to him/her as that until he/she makes their big arrival into this world, and then we will reveal the name. We thank you so much for already caring about our little one and we just ask for continued prayers.

with so much love,

peyton marie, & chip

(Also these pictures are from when I was twelve weeks along, ((now fifteen weeks along)), which was the first time we got to hear the heartbeat… SUPER EXCITING MOMENT. We are hoping that within the next month or so we will have some new pictures, find out the gender, and celebrate:)
