11 Weeks...letting Grandparents in on the news!

Happy Easter!  

We can't wait until the following Easter when little baby Fusco will be here with us to celebrate Jesus!

We were able to visit our family in Cartersville over the weekend and share the news about our growing family with our grandparents, along with our step-sisters and family.  Baby Fusco received his first Easter present from his/her Miller grandparents...a piggy bank to start saving for college! We were also able to spend time with the Thacker grandparents where mama and baby Fusco received a pregnancy journal with a day-to-day guide on how baby is growing and a birth to age 5 resource guide so that we can keep our baby healthy. 

It was wonderful to see everyone and to share in the excitement of what's to come.  The bump started to show a little by the end of Friday and now after all the delicious food from Easter dinners...the [food] bump is going strong!

This week Baby Fusco is the size of a lime...that's 0.25 ounces and about the height of the small side of a credit card!
