Surprise!

Last Thursday afternoon after a long day of setting up my classroom in preparation for meeting my new kiddo's the following day I found myself exhausted.  I actually had been quite tired the whole week...but that could have just as easily of been from not working for the past 2 1/2 months.  I was just getting ready to take a shower and relax for the evening when I decided...what the heck, let me take a test!  Knowing very well it was still very early.  I took the test..and jumped in the shower.  Halfway through the shower it hit me that I should go check on it and to my surprise there was a very real, very there second pink line!  I had imagined this moment for many many years in my mind.  I just stood there in my towel, shower still running and started bawling my eyes out and thanking God over and over and over!  This was it.  This was what I have been waiting for my whole life. Thank you Jesus <3

After the first initial shock, I jumped back in the shower then got dressed and eagerly awaited Steve to get home from work.  I had always imagined of telling him in some cute creative way.  But, when it actually came down to it....I couldn't hold it in long enough to come up with something.  I screamed his name and as soon as he came in the room I lost it again immediately.  And he knew.  He said he knew the second he saw my face. 

That weekend we were off to Key West with our best friends.  Bring on the water and sprite!  Instant cold turkey my friends.

After the weekend I scheduled my first initial appointment and consultation, where I found out that I was 4 weeks and two days.  Little baby "B"  is due to make his or her arrival on May 1st 2013 :)
