Honey, we're having a baby!

I have always looked forward to the day where I could surprise my husband with the news of having our first baby. We had an inkling that the time was near, so we went ahead and purchased a pregancy test. I told Matt that I wanted to wait until after he went to work before I took the test, so I could prepare some way to surprise him if it was positive. I was so anxious that I could not sleep the night before, and snuck ahead and took the test in the morning while he was in the shower. I was shocked when it was positive in less than a minute! I was pretty certain that it had to be true, when the test is expected to take around 5 minutes. I hurried and went back to bed before Matt finished his shower. I so wanted to tell him, but really want to find some creative way to surprise him too! It was quite the challenge for me to contain myself and keep him from suspecting a thing.

As soon as he left for work I jumped in the shower, and was toiling over what I could do to surprise him with the news. I decided just to be certain that this was really happening, that I should take another test. Once again it was positive in less than a minute! I decided that my plan of surprise would be to tie a pink and blue balloon to his vehicle, so he would know that the time has come and we would soon be parents! I had asked the receptionist at the front desk to page Matt and explain that there was an accident in the parking lot, and he needed to go to his truck and speak with the other person involved.

I was in the parking lot across from his vehicle, as my cell phone began to ring. I had not seen Matt just yet, so I did not answer my phone. I wanted to see the reaction on his face before hearing his voice. He had the biggest smile on his face, and it was so cute to see the excitement he had!
