So I had to stop blogging because I only had BABY -yes I said BABY-- on my mind and I was already getting to close to spilling the beans to this blogging world out there!!! :) and I just didn't know if that was a great idea ---I do not think I know anyone (as of now) that follow my blog HOWEVER you just never know what creepers one might have out there hahah
anyways back to the TOPIC---
WE ARE HAVING A BABY yes its true
God has blessed us with the biggest blessing and gift we could ever be given
I would be lying to say it feels pretty unreal still

To start from the beginning ......
We where home on leave for 26 days (over the holidays)
Towards the end of being in Iowa I started to not feel good but I just thought it was a cold, So I started in on the good drugs for cold and sinus.
On our way back down to good ol El Paso Texas we started to talk about how we are going to change our eating habits, live a healthier lifestyles, AS WELL as jump start it with a a cleanse
However I was just having a feeling (considering while reading about the cleanse we where going to start it said WARNING DO NOT PARTICIPATE IF PREGNANT
So I told Rocky that we needed to be responsible and get a test just in case before we started the cleanse
We where not going to start the cleanse until that following Monday
January 22,2012
So we had got all of the to start our cleanse and then it was Sunday night  (my period wasn't suppose to start until that following wed so that was not part of the concern it was just this feeling I had) So I said "babe we really need to go get a test before we start tomorrow" his response "well grab your shoes lets go get one quick"  (I had been looking up fun ways to spill the news to Daddy those couple days before hahah SNEAKY)
On our way to get the test hubby turns to me and says "don't build up a reaction in your head of how I will react to the news if we are pregnant! because I don't know how I will respond but I don't want you to take it like I am not excited or anything like that because I will be happy and excited I just don't know for sure how my initial reaction is going to actually be"
I couldn't help but laugh in my head at how prepared he was making himself
(maybe we both had a hunch it was real)
So when we get home he says "go pee on that damn stick"
So I head upstairs
I pee on the stick (for those of you who do not know 2 stripes your prego 1 stripe you are not)
Well.... 1 stripe shows up .... and I cant help but feel a bit disappointed I was just for sure that I was pregnant
you always hear "I just had that mother intuition" well I THOUGHT I had that but I guess I was wrong
I wash my hands and continue to watch the stick and THEN -----
WHAT I KNEW IT AAAAHHHHH stomach drops, kinda start to shake, disbelief fills my head, my heart is over joyed and I am just in utter shock ---I knew it I knew it I knew it
But for those of you have not taken a test before the second line is actually quite a ways away from the first line making it very tricky!! It fooled me that is for sure
come downstairs WELL?????
"I couldn't even pee"
Then he looks over at me :)
3weeks 5 days 

We couldn't tell anyone we where expecting until we where through the first trimester (the hubs didn't really realize that's how it would work and that we had to stay quite for 9 more weeks THIS WAS GOING TO BE HARD!) 

We have made it past the the 9 weeks wait and the BIG NEWS has spread :)

Updates Feb-March 2012


UPDATE .........

1. My girlfriend Ellie came to visit (she was on spring break) us and it was some MUCH MUCH MUCH needed girl time.  We had such a good time not really doing much of anything; as we are both joke and trying to save for bigger things hahaha, however, that did not stop us from doing a little shopping.  It was so nice to just go to the mall with someone who wanted to be there just as much as you do.  The hubs does NOT like to shop to say the least and to be honest shopping with your mom, sister, girlfriends is just way more worthwhile; getting their opinions and thoughts on different things.  What do boys know? honestly?  We ended up with matching dresses (in different colors) and I am excited to wear it tonight for date night

2. The hubs elbow has EXPLODED no lie when I say that :( YUCKY
He has been struggling with it for um lets see foreverrrrrrr..... lots of xrays, lots of medicines (anti inflammatory pills, antibiotics, etc etc etc), MRI, drs different drs more drs and then finally to ortho!! We finally got the go ahead that we would be doing surgery WHEN the explosion occurred ... it like "popped" open and lots of ooze and other cruds have came out of "the boob" of an elbow he has going on.  He has gone in everyday since it "popped" and they have squeezed it! and re wrapped it! "The boob" looks a lot lot better. He was in a lot of pain and finally got some good drugs! and is doing a ton better ... they are still going to go ahead and do surgery March 20th (4 days away) and scrape away the bursides (sp), any other infection in there, and hopefully get the little mass of rock/bone/ who knows what the hell it is out of there and FIX all the issues making him all better! The accident first occurred in September 2009 :(

3. Speaking of March 20th ---ANOTHER big event will be happening!
I'm so excited and it honestly feels like I am getting a Christmas in March! :)
My Mom, Bailey, Trey, Tucker, and McCoy are AAAAALLLLL flying it for a few days for a visit.
They are all on spring break.....
My sister is a teacher, my brother is in 6th grade, and my mom does daycare for all teachers (which lets be honest is like the perfect route to go ---one day when I am running my own daycare I hope to be so lucky 1. they are all picked up at a decent time 2. I get to have all the same days off as my kids would 3. Summers off and spending time with just my kids getting to go and do stuff and I could prolly go on even more with the pros's :)
and Little Mr. Tucker and Mr. McCoy --yes I am prolly most excited to see them, cuddle them, love on them, see how much they have grown and changed as well as watch how much they have learned.  Yes i just left them all mid January but it is AMAZING how much little ones change and how fast!!!!

It is going to be a little bit stressful taking care of my hubby while he recovers, entertaining the family, as well as relaxing and enjoying every moment I get with them (being the next time I will get to see them is June and that is WAY to far away)
But this is going to be a huge huge huge visit and life changing for everyone --I just know it!!! We are all going to have a blast and remember it forever. 
I only wish that my other brother Trevor (who's spring break didn't match up; he was home all last week from William Penn university) and my Dad (who couldn't take anytime off from work) could have made it too!!!

4. Lots of crappy stuff has been going on at Rocky's work and that has made being his wife not fun at times however its part of the job description I suppose I can handle it hahah I just really hope it gets better soon because it is morally not right or fair to say the least to him or any of his other fellow soldiers.  People need to step up and play their roles!!! Hate when people think they can get away with doing stuff, or take situations to an extreme because things in their own personal lives are not going well.  I am doing a lot of praying!!!!

5.  Another big prayer going out to this AMAZING couple that I babysit for, they got an amazing offer on there house literally before they had even put it up for sale.  They couldn't pass it up but they have not found a new house to move too.  Everyone they have considered so far has fallen through one reason or another--she is stressed to the max to say the least with one of her little ones 1st birthdays around the corner, a wedding they have to travel by plane too, moving and doing final stuff to there house, AND find a place to make there new home.  I can not even imagine and my heart def goes out to her. 

6. My girlfriend started to Blog and is dying to read mine --surprisingly enough only ONE person I actually know in real life knows about my blog that weird?? anyone else out there not tell people about there blogs?? my own husband doesn't even know what the name of my blog is ;he knows I have a blog and that's about the extent of it ----anyways I told her in a few weeks I would tell her my blog name so she could start to follow me ... maybe I will get brave enough and tell EVERYONE about it ??? oh how that will take some guts .... but it would be nice to keep everyone "updated" :)

7.  ONE MORE WEEK!!!!! beep beep beep beep beep beep (not the exact sound but not quite sure how to type out that noise) 

8. Happy St Pattys Day Everyone Have A Green Beer Or A Green Drink Or Hell Just Add Food Coloring !!! hahahahha

Off to start my busy weekend .... LLLLOOONNNNGGGG checklist to say the least :)
