1: About Our Family | Last week your daddy asked me to marry him. We hoped that one day that we would have you join our family but we had no idea that it would be a week later we would find out your were already on your way! Daddy and I both love the idea that you will soon join us and your older sisters and we just cant wait to meet our new baby girl or boy!
2: How We Found Out | July 17th, 2010 Today I was working in the ER kidding with my friend Heather about the chances that you would already be in my belly I called you my little zygote. It got me thinking that maybe I actually was pregnant after all I had not been feeling so hot lately. So I went to the back and got a test and tried to see if you might really exist. The test was unclear so I showed it to my friend sherry and she said well give it a minute to work and so I let her hold the test. A few moments later she said thats a yes! and I started to scream and cry with joy I was in such shock I fell to my knees on the floor and cried and cried! The nurses and staff all jumped from their chairs to see what was going on and sherry announced I was finally pregnant! It was the most wonderful moment of my life! Work let me leave a little early so I could get home before daddy to tell him the news. So I waited on the porch for him and when he got home he knew something was up and I pulled him close gave him a hug smiled and said I'm pregnant! | Taken the 18th of July at about 3am! We spent hours talking about you that night, even though your only this big .
3: How We Told Our Family & Friends | Telling the World Within Moments of finding out I was pregnant tons of the ER staff members had heard the great news ! Julio gave me a hug and said you will be a great mom! Just hearing the idea made me ecstatic! I called your grandmom and asked her if she wanted her new grandson or granddaughter to call her grandmom or grandma, she was shocked and excited with total disbelief! Next I told daddy...he would have been first but he was working at the jail and I wanted him to hear it from me in person! We decided that we would wait to tell your pappy and daddy's family on our beach trip the following week but couldn't help ourselves and we broke the news much earlier. We are so excited your on your way here! We Love you my little zygote

Daddy thinks you will be here early sometime in the middle of march but the way mommy feels right now Id say sooner than that! Everything is as ready as I think it can be all we need is you to arrive! The doctor says you seem to be growing well and everyday you move and stretch , sometimes It feels like your going to push your way out! My tummy is still not very big and many people are shocked to hear how close you are to being born strangers don't even realize I am pregnant! I am still 20 lbs less than I was when you were conceived and I still get sick in the mornings but for the most part I feel much better than I did ! You like to store your feet in my ribs and daddy often has to rub my back to help with the pain from that! When i lay flat everyone can see your body sticking out its really neat! Your sisters like to feel you moving in my belly and daddy wraps his arms around me and you every night when we go to sleep!

After many trips t the hospital with false alarms and hopes I will finally get to hold you in my arms! This week daddy and I went fishing , walking,, we even did some home improvements to try to get you to come out but tomorrow will be the day we have been waiting for! I will be honest mommy is a little scared but I know I love you so much it wont even matter because everything I have gone through to get you here and everything I will endure tomorrow will all be worth seeing you, my daughter, my dream that has finally come true!
