Our Greatest Adventure Yet!
After three cross country trips together, a big move to the west, to another mini move to the east for the summer, and countless other adventures to the California coast, conquering the mountains of Utah and exploring the beauties of New York state we've started the most exciting chapter of our lives — our greatest adventure yet.
Soon to be a family of three. Yes, we're having a baby!
This whole experience of being pregnant has been completely full of excitement and immense love. I took a pregnancy test without Brian knowing back in June, the Friday before Father's Day (which was absolutely the most perfect timing for us) I told my mom first because I just couldn't contain my happiness, and I knew with Father's Day being that weekend I wanted to do something special for Bri. That whole weekend was crushing me in anticipation, we ended up going out of town for part of it to do a family hike of the gorge rim at Stony Brook State Park with my parents and brother. That whole day was hilarious because my mom kept asking me if I needed water and I kept taking breaks (* a little over cautious but hey what can you expect from a first time pregnant lady?) I was trying not to be too obvious though since just days before I had even taken my pregnancy test my brother James made a comment that he thought I was pregnant.
Anyways, Sunday came and I finally broke the news to Brian after dinner with a small wrapped box, as he opened it he found a onesie, little tiny white boots and matching socks, and my positive pregnancy test. He was crying and I was beaming, he just kept hugging me and telling me how happy he was that he was going to be a dad. It was such a beautiful experience and I'm so glad we got to be with my family when I broke the news, (and that James totally got to say, "See I told you so, I knew it!")
Here's to our greatest adventure yet.
