2 + 1 = 3!!!!

Well friends, it official!!! We just got back from my 12 week appointment and we got to hear the heartbeat of our little one for the first time! We are soooo excited and feel so blessed that we will have a new arrival coming January 11th, 2011 :-) We found on on Mother's Day which was so exciting, because we weren't really expecting it but were hoping to get pregnant soon! I made Scottie go get me some tests and I couldn't believe my eyes! There I was in the bathroom and when I saw the two lines I didn't know what to think? I started laughing! That's when Scottie said..."So....what did it say?" I told him I didn't think I was prego because one of the lines was lighter than the other. That's when Scottie grabbed the box and said "Well two lines, one light and one dark, is a positive!" I didn't know what to think! We couldn't believe it so I took another one just to be sure and once again, POSITIVE! We were so excited that we decided to tell our families right away. Since it was Mother's Day it was the perfect present to give to my mama. I gave her a card to tell her. The funny thing is that when I gave her the card I was so anxious for her to open it that I was trying so hard to keep a straight face! The whole fam was gathered round and when she pulled out the card, she read the front and then starting talking (for like 10 minutes) about how great of kids we are and yada yada yada..... Finally I said "Just open the card!!" That's when my sister Megs saw it before my mom could even read it and said "I KNEW IT!!!! I JUST KNEW YOU WERE GOING TO TELL HER YOU WERE PREGNANT ON MOTHER'S DAY!!!" haha thanks Meggers?? My mom was so excited!

Here we are with the card, being oh so cheesy about the news!


And me and my wonderful mother. I only hope I can be as wonderful a mother to our little one, as she is to me :-)


So finally my family knew and overall it was the greatest Mother's and Mother to be day!
Overall I am feeling great! I haven't been sick at all and I was only tired for about two weeks. My sniffer definitely smells everything but it doesn't make me nauseous. On the other hand, I always smelled everything so it really isn't that different. I was kind of nervous for our first appointment because I really don't feel any different at all. I was afraid the doctor would tell me "Honey? You're not prego?" I was so relieved to hear the heartbeat!

Now, happy late Father's Day to my oh so fabulous Dad! Thanks dad for being such an amazing Father. One of my favorite memories growing up was getting ready in the morning and smelling the yummy smorgasbord of a breakfast you were cooking up downstairs. You certainly are the best at making French toast, cheesy eggs, and cream of wheat. Oh, and don't forget the homemade waffles and pancakes made from cracked wheat, topped with fresh strawberries and real whipped cream. I definitely missed those breakfasts when I moved away to college. Not only because they were yummy, but because I got to spend breakfast with you every morning, and I knew that you loved me enough to wake up at the crack of dawn so that I could have a "real breakfast" because cold cereal just wasn't enough for your little athlete. I love you Daddy :-) Happy Father's Day!


I also wanted to say Happy Father's Day to my hubby since he will soon be a father to our little bean. I know that you will be the greatest Dad ever babe! I love watching you play with our niece and nephews. They just love playing "Buddy Alligators" with you. I love that you can entertain any child with any prop and you love doing it. Thanks for everything you do and putting up with my sniffer:) I love you to pieces and you are going to be one heck of a Daddy!!
