My name is Amanda and I'm 19 years old. My fiance and I are expecting our first baby, a little boy, in June of 09.
I was born and raised in San Diego, California [SO*CAL], but I moved to Las Vegas with my fiance in July of 08. I'm really homesick!! I LOVE the ocean and I miss surfing everyday. But I'd give up anything just to be closer to the love of my life!! We have gone through so much together I can't imagine being with anyone else. I feel like the luckiest girl in the world to spend the rest of my life with him!!
We definitely were not trying to get pregnant but we are so happy about our little angel and we love him soo much!! I never thought I'd be as much in love with anyone as much as I am with my baby boy. We hope to be the best parents we can be. Both of us are completely new at this so any mommies or mommy-to-be's that can offer any advice I would be so grateful!! I don't have very many friends with babies!!
