One year ago today


We found out that I was pregnant with Aidan. Chris and I both woke up late for work that Friday. I was a day late so I decided to test. The second line came up right away and I was shocked. I ran out of my bathroom and started pounding on his bathroom door.  I asked him if he saw the line too and he said “Yeah, what does that mean?” I called my bff Michelle and said I think I’m pregnant. Now we had been on the message board for awhile and knew that a line is a line, but I still didn’t believe it. I got to work around 8:45 and decided to work through my lunch to make up the time.  Well I was feeling nasty so my supervisor told me to take a 15 minute lunch to run and get some crackers at the gas station. (I had been asking everyone for saltines) I couldn’t stop smiling all day.

When I got home I took another test to make sure (that was the second of many)


Before Chris got home I put Snoopy in this…


He was wearing that when Chris got home from work.  We had plans to hang out with our friends Scott and Erin to drive up to Purdue to see Mother Grove play.  Chris and I would steal smiles and no one had any idea why.

That was one of the happiest days of our lives. I loved being pregnant with Aidan. I was for sure at my happiest when he was growing in my belly.  While I was afraid I was so happy taking care of him for 8 days. When I have to get my blood pressure taken, I think of Aidan because he is my happy place.

I love you Aidan Christopher, you are my sunshine!
