FC: Baby Smith | 1st Trimester | 2nd Trimester | 3rd Trimester | Our New Bundle of Joy! Will it Be a Girl or a Boy?
1: Our Story! Remington Lewis Smith and I Nicole Dawn Dechant met at a demolition derby Aug. 2007 on a blind date. After meeting it was love at first sight. We never wanted to be apart and after two years of dating he popped the question.! We were married on June 12, 2010.
2: Mommy works for Kanza Cooperative in Iuka at the Farm Store as the Clerk and Secretary. Mommy has a passion for riding horses and barrel racing, she also loves watching movies and spending time with family and friends. | Daddy works for Cairo Cooperative at the Cunningham branch as the Assistant Store Manager. Daddy loves guns, trapshooting, hunting, fishing, tinkering with objects and spending time with his dogs.
3: Mommy and Daddy talked about having kids. Daddy only wanted to have two kids while mommy wanted a big family with four children. As our 1year Anniversary was coming around, little did we know, that soon we both would be surprised by a new bundle of joy that would enter our worlds and forever steal our hearts!
4: Mommy was late on her monthly so one day while in Wal-Mart she made Daddy buy a pregnancy test. Instead of doing the test the minute we got home she waited until Daddy was at work. While on lunch Mommy took the test | and waited for the results to either show a + or - sign. After waiting for what felt like an eternity, soon revealed a + (pregnant)!! Shocked and confused Mommy decided to take the remainder two tests just to be sure, and sure enough they were +. Mommy kept all three to show Daddy when he came home that day. Daddy was so excited about the news, but mommy chased him around the front yard with a stick calling him bad names. In the end it was exciting!! In 9 months our lives would forever change from just us two to a family. | Spreading the Word!
5: Mommy and Daddy thought and thought about how we were going to tell family and friends about the exciting news. After lots of thinking we decided to take a picture of the maternity test and mail them out to several close family members and friends. There was no return address nor any information indicating who was pregnant so people had to guess. After getting several phone calls we finally broke the news! Were going to be parents!!
6: Our first doctor's appointment was September 8th with Dr. Cannata, Mommy was 11wks and 5days along weighing in at 114lbs. Hearing the babies heart beat at a rate of 150 for the first time was AMAZING! Daddy got up and held Mommy's hand. Since Mommy was really sick and had lost weight during the pregnancy she was put on Ondansetron to help with not having to hug the toilet. | Our First Glimpse of You!
8: After finding out the news of having a little one on the way, Mommy waisted no time on starting to decorate the nursery.
9: Our guest bedroom became the new room for our little one. The wall color was an ugly off white and daddy painted it with a 'Cup of Cocoa' to add some color. We then hand painted Smith letters to go above the door of the closet and daddy hung those very carefully, making sure they were all even. | Before...
10: Since mommy loves antiques, the dresser is from an antique store. The night light rocking horses were a gift from grandma smith. | It was a lot of fun decorating the nursery. The wall decor with the bucking horse was in your great grandpa Jess and grandpa Reagan smiths baby rooms. | After....
11: Angel of God, my guardian dear, to whom God's love commits me here, ever this day, be at my side to light and guard, to rule and guide. Amen
