Great News

This morning I got up expecting to start my period. I figured I'd take a pregnancy test, not expecting anything, so much so that I sat it down and went about getting dressed and almost forgot to check it! :) I went to throw something away and saw it, with a plus sign in the window. I was so shocked that the look on my face was hilarious. (I know this because I immediately looked at myself in the bathroom mirror!! :) ) I then literally jumped up and down screaming silently. I opened the door to the bedroom (as Mitch was still in bed) and said "Honey...I just took a pregnancy test and it's positive!" His response was "I don't believe you." (stated with a slight slur as he literally had been asleep). When I showed him the test, he smiled. I ran back into the bathroom, set down the test and ran back to the bed. I laid across him and kissed him and then laughed mischievously and said "Maybe it will be twins or did you hear about that lady who had octuplets? That could be fun!" He said "That's not a baby, that's like a litter and we're not dogs!" Just the kind of humor that I love him for! We are so excited.

I have to set up an appointment at the obgyn to confirm but I'm pretty sure! Its actually really funny because just last night we were watching tv at like 10:30 and I decided I was hungry. I went into the kitchen, at a strawberry, a pinch of shredded cheese and then was looking around the door for something else. I noticed at the bottom of the door that I had an empty jar of okra that my mom had made. I picked it up and drank most of the juice, and then made myself some chicken flavored pasta. While the pasta was cooking I got a bottle of water out and thought to myself "Wow, those are some really funny food combos, you'd almost think I was pregnant!" And then I find out this morning... I AM!! :)

The Lord is just so gracious and giving, and we are so thankful to be given the opportunity (hopefully) to raise a child (or two!) in His Word and His way!


  1. Mitch's comment is hilarious! Something I could hear Jeff saying! Congratulations on your pregnancy- you let me know what kind of quilt you would like for the baby(ies)! I am so glad you are part of the blogging world!

  2. Hey I didn't know you started a blog! Yay for you!

    I also loved Mitch's comment about the litter. I laughed really hard until Dustin asked me what I was reading -- and when I read it to him, he laughed, too! He said that sounds just like something Mitch would say.

    Congrats you guys! So happy for you --- and that we get to do this together!
