A new beginning!

Friends and Family...WOW!!! We are expecting our first child this coming September 2009! We are both very excited, nervous, thrilled, scared, ect.! I took a home pregnancy test on Sunday the 4th. I was a day late for my period and I am always very regular and on time. I had been getting cramps (which @ that time, did not know that is also an early sign of pregnancy) so I thought for sure my period was on it's way. And then a faint line appeared!! Chris was still on shift at the Fire Department from the day before. He usually get's home around 8am. So I grabbed a piece of paper and wrote in a child's handwriting, I love you Daddy. I then took the test and put it with the piece of paper on the kitchen counter for when he came home. I then pretended to be sleeping. When he got home I snuck over to see his reaction. He had a "What the hell?" look on his face! At first he didn't even realize what it was! Then he saw me smiling from the doorway and said really?!?

He made me go buy another test and take it later that day because the first test the line was very faint. This time I bought a digital one and sure enough it said pregnant!!
Chris and I ask for your thoughts and prayers as our little miracle unfolds before us. We are both new to all this and most likely unprepared for all that lays ahead! We will be updating this blog with pictures and new information periodically. We still haven't told anyone our great news because we are deciding how long we would like to wait to make sure nothing happens the 1st few weeks. I am 4 weeks and 3 days pregnant today. I think it still hasn't quite hit me!!
