the day we learned we were pregnant

i was re-reading my journal last night and found this little excerpt, i thought it too perfect not to share. enjoy!!

i am freaking out. i skipped my last period ( which was about 2-3 weeks ago), i've been more tired lately, and i've been putting the wrong things in the freezer, forgetting to turn on the oven, other funny brain deficient things like that.
i think i'm pregnant.
i'm not supposed to take a pregnancy test for another week.... but right now i'm home alone, i have to pee, i have a test... and i'm FREAKING OUT!
i think i'm pregnant. i think i'm actually pregnant this time!!!
i just called travis to ask if he was ok with me taking it without him, he was so supportive & sweet, i love that hunk of muscles!
so, now it's go time. just me and that little stick that will decide our futures.
i strive to be a mother. travis & i are ready to love a little one of our own. now we'll see if Heavenly Father agrees. i am so so nervous. ok. ok. ok.
it's go time.

the most heavenly word!!

immediately there were tears.
then i called travis to tell him the news... more tears! i wished so badly that he was there on the bathroom floor with me. darn my excitement! i was still clutching the test so tightly like it was my live's dream... and you know what? i guess it was. 
travis & i on the phone, we had no words. we couldn't think of what to say. when he talked i could hear the smile on his face. our adventure together was about to get a little bigger. we were so happy.
when we hung up, i immediately prayed. Heavenly Father had just blessed us with the biggest gift, i needed to let Him know how thankful i am, and how determined i am to be a good mother to this new spirit.

travis & i are going to have a baby!
we're going to be parents!
pregnant pregnant pregnant!!!
