Been meaning to tell you guys...

We got a double stroller at the re-sale last month. =)

Yep!!! Got Baby #2 in the oven!

This is how we told daddy (bout 5 weeks ago)...

He walked in from practice one night and saw Adie sitting in the stroller. To which he replies,

"I thought we were getting the stroller this Friday at the resale."
(It Wed.. 2 days early for the resale.. and this is actually Greg and Natalie's stroller I borrowed to tell Darin)

I then said,
"How does Adie look in the DOUBLE STROLLER?"

He said,
"Well really cute but I'm really confused. I kinda wanted the jogging double stroller."

Then I told him to look on the front seat of the stroller...

A positive prego test.

And he attacked me.

Adie is in complete shock too..


We were really hoping for kiddos 2 years apart.. well, we are good planners I guess! Adie's b-day is May 10th and the new baby is due May 14th. Darin will be finishing up track and school and then we'll have him home for 3 months! I am sure Adie will become even more of a daddy's girl. I was 3 weeks early with Adie Grace but I will NOT expect that the 2nd time! Don't want to get super discouraged if we go 2 weeks late!

And let me tell you that $1 prego tests from the Dollar Tree work pretty darn well. ACTUALLY the first time I took one the 2nd line didn't appear. I didn't get too discouraged because it was the 1st month Darin and I started trying and it took us 6 months of trying before we concieved Adie. (I know, probably TMI but I've never held back from you guys on the ol' blog!) I went to a baby shower about an hour and a half away and returned later that afternoon. I had an incling to check out the test again in the trash can just because I really felt like I was prego. Well, the test had 2 lines then. Actually read the instructions then and it said that
"if you fish this test out of the trash basket hours after you've peed on it 2nd results are null because pee stick is only good for 10 minutes."
(Okay, so that's my version but I really think I have a future in instruction writing.) I took another test 4 days later and immediately it had a 2nd line. =) So yeah, props for the $1 tests.. they even work hours after they say they shouldn't work! And I was like 3 weeks pregnant! I'm still in my 1st trimester for a few weeks but I've been wanting to blog about my crazy cravings of cilantro and Velveta cheese and just finished my Serendipity Kit for Oct and have a pregnancy journal I want to share with you. So I just had to tell ya. =)

We are super excited and can't wait for the addition to our family. Had an US and saw the heart beat.. again I am blown away by the miracle of this baby growing inside of me. God is knitting him/her together in my womb. So amazing.

Baby H #2... we love you already!

Congrats to this new baby. Love the way you told him. When we had our 2nd on the way. I wrote on a onezie for Chad and had Alyssa put it on that said "I'm a big sister" he thought it was great to find out that way.

Congrats!! I am cooking baby #2 right now as well :) We're due Feb 19th; it's another girl. Hope you feel great! I too took Dollar Store tests--two of them & neither were positive. I finally bought an expensive one & got the positive. I am not a believer, lol! I don't know how you can find out without your husband & get to share the news; mine is always with me when I find out :) If I have another I will try to get to tell him so I can enjoy the surprise, though!!

Half Pint said...
