We're having a BABY!

We found out Saturday that we are pregnant!  We have been actively trying and last Friday I bought a 3 pack of the First Response tests...those magical ones that can tell you up to 6 days before your missed period.

I woke up around 6:00 Saturday morning and had to use the restroom, so I went ahead and peed on the stick while I was at it.  And I saw this:
I did like eight double-takes and brought the pee-stick way too close to my face to inspect the results, then pinched myself to make really sure I wasn't dreaming, then cried tears of pure joy and disbelief.

Then I thanked God for giving us this little miracle and promised Him we would take the best care of this baby, and I crawled back in bed.

Robert was still sleeping.  It was still dark outside, so of course he was still sleeping!  I, on the other hand, could not go back to sleep.  I laid there for a while, staring at Robert, willing him to WAKE UP!

Before too long, he grunted and rolled out of bed and started stumbling to the bathroom and right before he shut the door I called out to him, "Hey! I left something on the counter for you!"

He stopped, looked down, did a couple double-takes at the pee-stick himself and said, "So, does this mean you're pregnant?!!" I told him yes!

At first we talked about waiting until we had a doctor visit to share our news. 

That lasted all of about an hour. 

We had told everyone by the end of the day.  We couldn't help it!  We are having a BABY!  How are we supposed to keep that to ourselves?  It's the best thing to ever happen to us!

Someday Baby Brown will read this blog and know their whole life's story from the very beginning.  And that's so cool!  Baby Brown, we love you!
