Spilling the Beans

A few months ago, I begin feeling different. I wasn't my usual bubbly, energetic self. Suddenly, napping all day, or eating soda crackers sounded like a swell way to spend my day. I thought for sure, I had caught a summer bug, since I always do, but my husband knew better. It wasn't until one day when I was doing yard work, and I suddenly had to turn my head to relieve my squirmy tummy. Ick.

My stomach dropped when I finally took one of those little tests and then proceeded to beg, plead, grovel at my husband's feet to go back to the market for another brand....

Without further adieu-


That's righty-O!! We are expecting!! In fact, I am almost 12 weeks (I will be on Wednesday). My mind really didn't seem to grasp the whole concept til my midwife found the wee one's heartbeat. Swoon. Sweetest sound in the entire world.

Everything looks really good (and I am praying to keep it that way). Right now, I am focusing on not being a superwoman!! I've got other things to take care of, and all I want to do is everything healthy and wholesome to give this wee one a good head start.

We feel so blessed, my husband and I weren't sure this was a possibility for us.

Christmas seems to have come early.
