One year ago on January 4, 2010, I took a pregnancy test after coming home from work. There were none of the usual signs that my monthly friend was on her way and I knew our timing had been great a few weeks prior. I was excited, nervous, happy, and terrified all at the same time. I took the test, and we anxiously waited the 3 minutes. Michael went to look at it and then jokingly tried to keep me from seeing it--little punk! Finally, I pushed my way into the bathroom and looked at the white stick...POSITIVE! Two beautiful, clear pink lines! We were pregnant!
Now, fast forward a year, and I'm typing this while my almost five month old plays on his playmat. He is cooing, kicking and shaking his Freddie the Firefly. He's laughing at me and is a sweet little boy.
We are truly blessed, and I am so thankful for that little test that changed our lives for the better one year ago.
