I wouldn’t say that we were shocked, but still… there is really nothing normal or average about the day you find out you are pregnant for the first time. I have to admit, after I took the test, I was scared to look at the result. Well, scared isn’t the right word. I guess I was just not sure what to do with myself either way! But eventually, I did look…and when the reality set it, it was surreal. What a wonderful Christmas gift! The gift of new life and a new family member to add to our little crew.
Sharing that moment with your Dad (on Christmas morning!) was really fun. We had a speechless moment, where we just smiled at each other for a little bit. I wonder what your Dad was thinking about during those silent seconds. You should ask him sometime. I remember thinking, “Wow, its amazing how different life can look in a matter of 5 years!” And then, “Wow, its amazing how different the future can look in the matter of a split second!” There I was, staring at a positive pregnancy test and feeling excited in my heart about being a mom. I’m thankful that God brought me to this place. Mostly, I am thankful that He has given me your Dad. This guy is the reason I am excited and confident about being your MOM.
