|On our first date|
We spent most of our first few months together taking turns to make the 2 hour drive to see one another. It only took us a few short months before we were talking about a future, marriage and even kids. On Halloween night 2008 in a bedroom FILLED with candles and a bottle of my favorite wine- Red Cat- S asked me to marry him! I spent the rest of the night huddled on the couch with his sister making wedding plans!
We started trying to conceive pretty much right away. We both badly wanted children and S felt that since he was pushing 30 he wanted them SOON so that he wouldn't be an "old dad". It didn't take long... January 28th I got to see that glorious word "Pregnant" on one my little pee stick! I jogged down the stairs, pulled on my boots and winter coat and headed off to the barn to find my husband. He was just as shocked and excited as I was and he spoke the most beautiful words to me... "You're going to be a mommy"! I swear I fell in love with him all over again after he said that!
On October 13, 2010 at 9:08PM, after more than 24 hours of labor and 6 hours of intense back labor our little blessing arrived, and it worth every single second of it! We had decided not to find out the sex of our baby until she arrived and we were so happy to finally hold our 8lb 7oz baby girl in our arms count all of her fingers and toes and call her by her name! Here's a picture of our little princess the morning after she was born.
