Watch: The Big #BabyBean Announcement!

If you haven’t checked it out, there’s an adorable video where you can watch my family scream, cry and generally celebrate with us. It’s super cute.

At the time of making the big reveal, I was only about 5 or 6 weeks pregnant. The euphoria of finally expecting was strong and the full effects of the first trimester had not yet hit. But boy, was I in for a surprise…
