Today is a special day for me. Let me tell you about what happened on this day 2 years ago.
I had gone to bed the night before after a couple glasses of wine, because I was scared. Scared that there may just be a little bun in the oven. I told the hubs, who replied with”you do this every month, you are not pregnant”. Hehe. Okay so I got scared often, but not like this. Something was different, I think I knew deep down what the answer was. I decided to take the test the next morning.
I got up to get ready for work. I loved my job. The job that I started a whopping 5 weeks before this. I showered, then put on my fluffy robe, so I had something to wipe away the tears with. I took the test and almost instantly, it was positive. I sobbed. I feel bad saying that, but it was totally unexpected. We were young, just moved to California and having our great adventure. I could hardly get the words out to Billy. I was shocked that he was the one comforting me. I never thought that would be the case. Then I realized he was in shock, because he told me that it might be wrong and I should probably take another one once I got to work.
I got to work and twiddled my thumbs until the pharmacy in the hospital opened. I got another test, took it, and what do you know? It was positive. I did a great job hiding it from my co-workers. Yeah, right. I cried so hard one of my doctors took me into his office and had me sit there to calm down. Yep, I am that woman who told my entire office I was pregnant the day I found out. Luckily, we live across the country from our families, so they couldn’t tell them.
I talked to Billy to tell him his “second test will be negative” plan failed. Now, this was the day that several coal miners were trapped in the mine in Utah. Billy told me “Molls, we always wanted this, it is just a little early. There are people out there loosing family members, and we are gaining one.”
Now I see my little man running around the house, blowing kisses at me, and I couldn’t imagine my life without him. I seriously think it would be boring. I am a blessed mama!
On to another topic. I am about to point fingers, and call YOU out in a crowd.
I love all your sweet comments. I love them so much, that I usually have something to say in response. (Who am I kidding? I always have something to say.) Some of you have your email preferences set so I can’t respond to you, even though I REALLY want to! I am such a pro with the whole technology thing, that I have been sending emails in response for oh, 6 months or so, and I had no idea you weren’t getting them. Sheesh.
The following bloggy friends have lots of emails from me floating in cyberspace:
Amber @ High Heels, a Husband & Maybe Baby.
Rachel @ The McMommy Diaries
Annie @ Our Little Family
April @ Dot…Dot…Dot
Summer @ Sublime Happiness
Sheila @ I Wanna Talk About Me
Becky @ Becky’s Photography
Now, I am not telling you that you have to change your settings, I just wanted you to know that I haven’t been ignoring you and not responding. You seriously think I would do such a thing?!
For all you others, go check out these girlies that I happen to love.
I remember the day I found out I was pregnant. I just stood there, holding the test staring at myself in the mirror. I totally hit that panic of "this is way too soon in our marriage to be pregnant" shock. I don't think it ever wore off really. Even with an almost 18-month old I feel like I have to pinch myself and say "you are a mom".

Awww what a great story!!! Very touching 🙂 Life throws curve balls but you and your hubby seem to have taken everything in stride and you're raising an adorable little boy!
Aww what a sweet story. I remember the day that I found out I was pregnant. We were trying to get pregnant and I still couldn't believe it. I took like 6 tests. I couldn't even imagine my life now without him.
We did the SAME thing….freaked out…and then thought…maybe this one is a dud, ran to the pharmacy for ANOTHER test…and sure enough…ANOTHER positive….neither were duds 🙂
and just look at our little cupcakes now 🙂
Ok…I’m NO computer whiz, so I am a little confused. What do you mean by "email preferences?"…I get your comments, and I get notified of them via e-mail…is there something else I should be doing?!? (how humiliating…I am SO not 'with it') haha
Hmm…I get your comments, but I wonder if I've got a setting I need to change?? Hmm….I'm not exactly "computer savvy" either…haha…
I'll see what I can figure out! 🙂

I did the same thing when I found out I was pregnant! Also, I tried to make my e-mail thing work. Umm.. I think it worked? I don't know how you would let me know if it didn't! I had no idea anyone was trying to e-mail me. Whoops.
Aww, that's a good hubs! Life just throws you curves sometimes! It all happened exactly how it was supposed to :)… but we've talked about this before!

Such an adorable story. I think everyone is in shock and might cry when they find out, we may think we are ready but I am not sure that many really are! Coop is so adorable and you are blessed!
That is the most incredible story… I am SO moved! Amazing.
That was one adorable post and your baby is so adorable!
Okay girly, what?!? I've been getting your comments on my posts, but no direct emails from you. Is that what you mean? I sure don't want to be missing out on any correspondance (did I spell that right?) from one of my favorite girls!! You can email me or even text me anytime … let me know if you need my contact info!! :o)
Totally understandable response! It is a scary thing and a HUGE change, but just like you said-Could life be any better when that little face looks up at you? When Caden runs up to me saying Momma and Mommy my heart melts!

I am so glad I just came across your blog! I think it's adorable and so are YOU! I just couldn't stop reading it! Your baby is so cute, you are such a lucky girl! Okay, that's enough gushing, just thought I'd say hello, and I'll be stopping by from now on!
I, too, get comments from you on my blog. What setting should I have to be getting emails? You are the second person that has mentioned that and I went and looked and still have no clue…just shows how little time I have been doing this, I guess. I have been wanting to change my color on my background…to something besides the ones blogger offers…do you know how to do that too?
Thanks for sharing…. very sweet. Motherhood is definitely a roller coaster huh? From the moment we find out… until forever I suppose! 🙂
Just A Mom (Call me JAM for short) says
Motherhood usually brings out a whole other aspect of ourselves that we just don't even realize that we have till it happens!
Hey Molly! I have to go change my settings (duh, lol) I'll figure it out. Also, we found out today that we're expecting a little boy! I'm too excited for words. Thanks for reading my blog, you're great 🙂
