Our little firefighter

I am in love with all the cute firefighter onesies we have gotten so far! I just have to share them! My mom bought us these two...

and Jon and Brit bought us this one when they went to New York...

Jackson will definitely be decked out in firefighter gear! Can't wait to start on his firefighter nursery :)

Our house...

Our house is coming together so quickly! I'm glad it is only an exit away from where we live now because Jack and I are obsessed with driving by almost every night!! We met our neighbors the other day too and they were the sweetest family. They already invited us over for one of their barbecues! Jack and I can't wait to move in and start our little family of 3, well 6 if you include our pets! I apologize to my friends and family if all you hear out of our mouths is house and baby talk... we are just SO excited that it's hard not to talk about it! Even through all the excitement, there is still a part of us that is nervous because it is a huge investment to purchase a home. But Jack and I have always tried to make the best decisions for our life and we believe that God would not give us anything that we could not handle. I have to trust that my fortune cookie I got last night is true...

For awhile all we saw were huge piles of dirt, but this past week they have really gotten a lot done! Here is a sneak peak of our house...

It's a BOY!!!

Today was the big day!!! Jack and I found out at 10am that we were having a baby BOY! We were BEYOND excited! We told our family immediately, but had to wait until 7pm to tell all of our friends because we threw an Announcement Party at Main Event. We couldn't wait to share the news with everyone. We asked everyone to wear blue if they thought it was a boy or pink if they thought it was a girl. The majority wore blue and only two people wore pink! Once everyone got there, we passed out the cupcakes. We made cupcakes that had white icing and blue cake so once everyone bit into it they could see that it was BLUE for a BOY!

Here is a picture of our handsome son, Jackson Cade Burns :)

It's July!!!

It's Friday and it's July! This is my favorite month of the year! SO many GREAT things are happening this month:

* Celebrating 4th of July with great friends

* Mom's birthday

* Dad's birthday

* Finding out if our baby is a boy or girl!!! :))

* Britney Spears/Nicki Minaj Concert

* My Birthday

* South Padre with some of my favorite people

* Katy Perry Concert

And to start July off, I am 19 weeks pregnant today! Only one more week until we know what Baby Burns is! I also had to go buy my first pair of prego pants... I am actually very excited about this purchase because they are soooo comfy! Here is what is happening this week: The baby weighs about 8 1/2 ounces, and measures 6 inches, head to bottom — about the size of a large heirloom tomato. The hair on their scalp is sprouting. This is a crucial time for sensory development: The baby's brain is designating specialized areas for smell, taste, hearing, vision, and touch.
