christmas eve


Shower. Pee on a stick. My plan for the morning. I originally planned to test Christmas Day, but I was getting too anxious.  I laid the test upside down and waited 5 hours. (Reality= 3 minutes.) Flipped it over and saw a huge positive and gasped.

The following thoughts ran through my head.

“SDKJFHEWILFUSDFLKBJH!!!!!!!!!!!”
“That was FAST.”
“That was easy…”
“Andrew is going to flip.”
“I can’t go on any rides at Disneyland.”
“Breathe.”

I ran downstairs and shouted to Gabe, “GUESS WHAT!!!!!! MOMMY HAS A BABY IN HER TUMMY!!!!!! YOU’RE GOING TO BE A BIG BROTHER!!!!!! OH MY GOSH HOW ARE WE GOING TO TELL YOUR DADDY!!!!!!!!!!!”

You could say I was a little excited.

We wrote daddy a card that said, “Dear Daddy, I am going to be a big brother! Merry Christmas. Gabe, big brother.” He wanted me to write big brother after his name, already so proud! We brought it to the office where Andrew and I work, and recorded the whole thing. He was speechless and had a few tears. It was perfect. And then he made me go to the store to buy another test! Ha! Of course it came up positive again. Overjoyed.

I called my best friends, Skyped with my mom and family in Washington (she cried!) went to Christmas Eve service at church, whispered to a few more people then at our family dinner, Gabe gave Grandma (Andrew’s mom) the card we gave daddy earlier. She was in shock, Andrew’s aunt screamed and we all hugged. What a huge blessing.

Today you are 5 weeks old and due to bless us with your presence late August.

I love you so much already, even though you make me feel like I’m going to throw up.

Love,
Mommy
