The Details

I still can't believe that I'm going to have another baby!! Tomorrow I will be six weeks! The eight week wait for my first doctor's appointment is brutal! I know I'm pregnant, however I just wanna hear and see my little love for it to seem really real! I can't believe our family will be going from three to four in nine short months!
So now to how we found out our new little one was on it's way! Paul and I always said we wanted our kids three years apart, so our plan was to start trying in August...I wanted to have the baby closer to the end of the school year so I could have a nice long summer break.  Even though I knew I could be, I'll admit that I in no way thought I was pregnant, but mid-August rolled around and it was time to test and see. So one afternoon after a long day of inservice, I took one...waited...and waited...and then went to check and there it was...a yes!! I couldn't believe it!
I couldn't wait to tell Paul. I had about an hour before he would be getting home from work. So I thought I would whip up a cute sign, but we were out of printer ink. So I pulled out my scrapbook stash, found some stickers and made this sign. I taped it to the dresser mirror in our room, because he always goes in there to change when he gets home! HOWEVER...on this particular day, he walked through the door with a smile on his face and a card in his hand. He said he got me I opened the card and it was a sweet thank you card for taking care of him when he had surgery, and inside was a $50 Starbucks card (b/c I am addicted to tall Vanilla Lattes and get one almost every day on my way to school!) It was so sweet and thoughtful, but inside I was dying because I knew I couldn't use it after all! I was eager to get him to go to the room, and he finally did...he turned on the light and once he made his way to the dresser and saw it, he turned around, smiled and said "What...No way"!
After lost of hugs, we told Lane! He acted like he understood but doesn't really have a clue!
After a couple of days, I couldn't hold it in any longer...I had to tell someone. And seeing how my mom lives in North Carolina, I knew I wouldn't be able to tell her in person. So I sent her an email with this attachment! We also sent it to my sister, Paul's sister, and Paul's mom! All were caught off guard until they finally realized what the shirt said!
I have read enough mommy blogs out there to know that the second pregnancy flies by, so I want to really try to take it day by day and enjoy it as well as enjoying Lane, seeing how his only child days are numbered! We are so thankful, excited, and can't wait to see who is going to join our family this Spring!
