Merry Christmas!

Tucker and Bo doing a great job keeping the new family member a secret

Being one of the most difficult secrets to keep, our dogs did a great job during Christmas when we went home. I took this photo because I plan on doing the weekly chalkboard photos and thought a great way to start our pregnancy off is to make the secret announcement from the excited big brothers Tucker and Bo. They are They are a little unsure of how it is going to work with mom and dad giving all the attention to a little baby, but I'm sure we can figure out how to make our family of four grow into a family of five!

As a side note, it was hilarious to have people actually ask if I was pregnant while we were home or how cute I looked holding a baby. The best one was when we showed a baby outfit to my grandma and she was like is there something your not telling me? My dad rubbed my stomach and said oh didn't you see on Facebook Amy's pregnant. Jeff and I about lost it laughing. We had to explain that the outfit was for Jeff's cousin who just had a baby and we would let her know before anything was posted on the interwebs.

Guess What???

We're expecting!

After being about a week late I decided to use the one test I had in the house on December 18th and see if my dream of being a mom was about to come true. Almost instantly I knew we had a winner. At that point I did a little hmm is this really happening? Am I ready for this...well it's too late it's happening. How do I tell my hubby? What is he going to say? Do I do something cute and tell him or... Oh let's just go tell him! So I quietly walked into our bedroom with the lights still off where he was still sleeping, crawled into bed and said hey so umm we're pregnant. He said congrats and I knew he needed some time to process everything so I got up and continued to do my morning routine of getting ready for work. When he came upstairs after his shower and I was like well we did it and he responded with my favorite line ever I'm A Man!

Now the part about keeping this pregnancy a secret is going to be tough. I called our doctors office hoping to get an appointment, you can't get in until 8 weeks ugh seriously? So if you remember we found out on December 18...right before Christmas. So now the hard part is do we tell our parents or wait? It could be the best Christmas present ever, but being worried that something could happen we decided to keep it to ourselves until we get to see this little bundle of joy and get confirmation from our doctor that everything is ok and we are in the clear.

We are so excited for this next chapter in our lives. Stay tuned for updates on our little one!
