First of all, happy Friday! I am enjoying a lovely half-day at work today before a dress fitting and manis with my sissy. In the mean time, my dear husband ended up getting off work from now until the Monday after Christmas. *insert grumpy face here*
Aside from the magic of it simply being Friday, I am feeling particularly sappy and emotional today. Exactly one year ago, I pulled out a little test, waited all but 2 seconds for it to show up positive, and ran into the bedroom and tackled a
still sleeping Mike while I sobbed. So much for my plan of giving him an adorable football onesie as an early Christmas present and watching him figure it out.
Of course, despite a positive test, Mike wasn’t convinced. I went and bought two more that day, and both of them agreed with test number one and screamed YO, you’re pregnant!! at me.
I have officially known about my little squishy’s existence for a year. So it’s kind of like his one year anniversary of existence. So maybe I should buy a cake? Probably not.
But in all seriousness, it has been a YEAR. It honestly feels like yesterday. Pregnancy drags on and on, but then you look back and it was all over and done with before it even began. In a year, I have gone from a newlywed to mama of a precious 4 month old. Obviously time tables are off, because Jackson was so excited to meet me he broke protocol and showed up early. Really though, can you blame him? 😉
This weekend we have the Stang family Christmas, and I am so excited to show off my adorable little monkey man, rather than dodge questions and avoid eye contact like I did last year. Did you know that within a week of getting married, people start asking you if you’re pregnant? True story. Last year I had every other person at the party ask me when we were having kids, and Mike’s cousin flat out asked me if I was pregnant yet. I put on my best poker face, and told a 100% lie and said ‘Nope’. Hopefully no one asks me this year if I am expecting #2, but if they do, I won’t have to lie, so one less thing to worry about. My squishy will be an only child, for now.
Anyone else have exciting holiday plans this weekend? 6 days until Christmas, when did that happen!
