My Magic Moment . . .

After a while I thought it would never happen. We had been trying for almost a year and it seemed like we would never get our wish of adding to our family. Then on Valentine's Day, I decided to take a test. It would be a little early, so I was trying not to get my hopes up.

When I took the test, I was so nervous and anxious all in the same moment. I stuck the test on the edge of the bath tub and left the bath room. I tried to busy myself for the longest 3 minutes ever. When I came back, I picked up the test with my eyes closed and said one last little prayer.

When I opened my eyes, there was one very dark line and a very faint line that was so desperately wanting to shine on through. Inside my heart was fluttering and my hands were shaking. Could it really be a positive? So at lunch time that day, I took another test. This time that second line was beaming! I was pregnant! I was kind of in denial until I took a picture of it and sent it to Lew at work.

I think he was in shock too. He sent back a message, "Is this for real?" And it was.

On Valentine's Day of this year, we had an amazing magic moment. A moment that we will remember forever.

And at the beginning of June we had another magic moment. We found out we were having baby boy #2! We couldn't have been more happy that he was healthy and looked just like his brother!


I can't leave my first baby boy Will out...I had to include a picture of when I was pregnant with him. After all he was my first magic moment that was concieved in only a month. Definitely magic.
