A Year's Difference

It was this time, one year ago, that we found out we were going to have a baby.

I took no fewer than 8 pregnancy tests - within two hours.  It was a mix of shock, excitement, and pure joy, and that night will stick in my mind forever.  

See the water bottle??  I was chugging them to take more tests!  I tried each brand that exists- just to be sure  :)

I don't think I've shared this video before, but wanted to now.  My parents and Grammy and Tony's parents were planning to spend Thanksgiving at our house - so it was the perfect time to tell them all in person - together.  We always do the traditional "everyone go around and say what you're thankful for" ritual before eating - and I set myself up to go last.  Tony stealthily filmed it on my phone - thus the terrible angle - I was literally nearly breathless, so nervous and excited to tell them and I wasn't even sure how I was going to say it until the words came out.  I was sure my mom saw it coming a mile away - but apparently she didn't (that's her screeching off camera) - they were all so surprised!  I just love this video.

So one year later, I'm holding my big girl close.  My little tiny baby who is growing up so fast already.  Our little love.


  1. We also found out this weekend, last year. I took no less than 7 tests to confirm :)

  2. AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW totally tearing up over the video. :):):) Best. Feeling. Ever!
    I still have my bloodwork taped to the side of our fridge. I know that's crazy, but it still makes me so darn happy. :)

  3. Oh that video!!! So special!!!! We told family at Thanksgiving, too. How things can change in a year.

  4. Seriously adorable. Made me cry. Babies are such a blessing!
