November 19, 2011

Just had to do a quick post this morning. One year ago today I woke up, fairly early. Justin headed out to play golf with his cousin, I was going to ride horses with his cousin's mom at Lake Martin. As soon as Justin left, I ran to the bathroom to take a pregnancy test. After anxiously waiting, not really sure what it would say, I went to check it. PREGNANT. It definitely took me a few minutes to catch my breath. I immediately called Justin, more in shock than excitement. After a few minutes when the news sunk in we were both really excited!! His cousin has 3 small kids and Justin said he joked with him all day about when we were going to have kids haha! I was a nervous WRECK about horseback riding!! I knew you weren't supposed to ride if you were pregnant but HOW pregnant did that mean!? I called an OB doctor's office and talked to a nurse on call. She was laughing and said it was probably fine. I didn't want to hear a "probably fine" I needed a "of course you can, crazy!" Anyways, I was VERY cautious to say the least. Poor Cowgirl was so out of shape and bounced me all over the place. Lucky for her I wanted to take it easy that day too so we hung in the back of the pack! 

I really can't believe it has been an entire year since we found out. Like everything else these days it feels like it flew by. In a few days she will be 4 months old. I can't believe it! With Thanksgiving being a few days away, this is definitely my "thankful for" this year. Last year during the blessing my mom said "we are thankful for new family members to come next year." Emily and Brewer had just been engaged so everyone assumed it was for him. Little did they know little Brantley would be coming!!
