exciting news :)

"Sometimes the smallest things take up the most room in your heart."

Jared and I are having our first little one :)
We are beyond excited and so very blessed. We decided a few months ago to "see what happened" and as I laid the positive test on Jared's counter he promptly said "I thought you said it would take longer." I guess he thought there was more time for just the two of us..... wrong.
Of course I called the doctor 4 minutes later expecting them to be sooooo surprised, shocked, excited... then I came to my senses and realized that they probably get a zillion calls/day with the same news. Jared kept saying that we needed to confirm it and go in to the doctor... 6 tests later, I think he was convinced.
We went in at 6 weeks for an ultrasound and then back at 9 weeks for an ultrasound... I was having cramping and he wanted to give me peace of mind that everything was fine. The first time we saw the little baby on the screen was amazing. I didn't believe it until then, and Jared definitely didn't. Since then, we went in to hear the heartbeat and it was nice and strong... it was high.... hoping that means it's a girl :) We will be happy with either, as long as it's healthy.
We are also selling our home.... we close in a few weeks if all goes well. We are going to be leasing a home while we build.. so that will be where we are living when the little angel arrives.... in February. At first this freaked me out, because it wasn't how I pictured it, but ultimately, its exciting to be building our dream home for this growing family. The house we are leasing is great... bigger than ours now, so there wont be any roughing it :) I don't think I will make a nursery in that home... we will only be there for a couple months after the baby gets here and I am sure the baby will just need a bassinet in our room until we move.
And..... in February we will be close to opening our TCBY.
All that said... February will obviously be an eventful month around here.
ALSO--- My sister is due the day before me with her second little one! We are so excited and so fortunate to have each other... going through the exact same thing at the exact same time. We cant wait to meet the babies. My mom is resting up!! Two will be a handful for her, but she wouldn't have it any other way, and neither would we ;)
I will keep you posted on everything now that the secret is out!!
Hope you are all doing fabulous!
