First Comes Love, then Comes Marriage, then Comes...

Monday, February 18, 2013

Oh, where has the time gone... the last time I wrote a blog, I had just gotten married! Now, here I am, almost a year later and I'm on to the next big thing!


The Night We Found Out :)

Justin and I are both so excited and cannot wait for baby to come. Getting that little positive test was one of the best days of my life. Here's a little blurb I wrote on my other blog about that special day...

"I started with just one of those two line tests. I took the test and set it down to start waiting... and a second line started to appear! No way! I wasn't sure I was actually seeing it or if it was a figment of my imagination, so I took the digital test as well. After taking that, I sat at the bottom of the stairs with Justin and just waited. Those three minutes seemed like the longest three minutes of my life! Justin kept watch on the clock and when time was up, I ran back upstairs.

I picked up the test and my heart stopped... it was POSITIVE! I couldn't believe it. Absolute joy washed over me and I just couldn't believe it. I thought I would cry when I finally saw a positive test, but all I could do was smile.

When we first started trying, I bought a present for Justin for when we got our positive test. I had it wrapped in a shoe box in our closet {he had no idea it was there}. It was a book entitled Dude, You're Gonna Be a DAD along with a onesie that said "I *heart* my daddy" across the front. I opened the box, put the two tests inside, closed it back up, and headed down to give it to Justin.

I handed him the box and he opened it. He immediately looked at the tests and pulled out the line test first. He looked at it with a look of confusion and I told him to hurry up and look at the other test. He pulled it out and tears welled up in his eyes. He was so happy! He hugged me so tightly and it was the best feeling in the world. Then he said, "We're gonna be parents!"

The rest of the evening was a blur. I was in complete shock and it just didn't seem real. It was like I was living in some alternate universe that was absolutely amazing. I was on cloud nine."

12 Week Baby Bump

We got to hear the heart beat for the very first time on Valentine's Day (February 14... absolutely amazing sound) and we get to find out the sex of the baby on Pi Day (March 14)! Baby is due on August 8, 2013 and is already so loved!
