In the beginning...

And our lives are changed forever...

It was the morning of June 12, 2007. Holly went to work and was coerced by a co-worker to take a pregnancy test after being just 4 days late. To her surprise, she was pregnant!!! SO, she rushed home (around 7:30 am) and awoke me with this wonderful news. It took me a while to realize that it was not a dream!

We decided to keep it a secret from everyone until we heard the heartbeat around week 12. In the meantime, we traveled to Florida for a vacation (to see Will and Jenn Thomas, Dan and Trudy Ingram, and Kirk and Christie Hunt). Then we traveled to Alabama to visit our family and friends (Scott, Lorinda, and the Ironaton folks) over the 4th holiday. Hiding it was definately hard, but we succeeded.

Holly has been very sick, especially in the evenings. Her doctor has put her on some medications that have helped with her nausea. She is having the typical issues: nausea, tiredness, and not being able to sleep. We are both looking forward to the 2nd trimester.
