bubba the artist...

how was your valentines day? good i hope. mine was (while i hate to brag) but it kind of kicked ass.

to start the day off, i got to sleep in until almost 10am. then the boys {with b's help} presented me with the cutest valentines day card ever. it involved a lot of cut out hearts and a lot of glue. following the card, was a brand new necklace from thevintagepearl.com. this one, but with bubba, pooks and peanuts' names on it.
love, love, love it! i've been wanting a necklace from them for forever and B decided it was time, i guess. yay!

so after the gift exchange {the kids and I gave B a coffee mug with their valentine's photo on it, filled with m&ms, and a photo desk calendar for his office at work} we ate lunch.

after lunch, i didn't feel so good. since we ate chicken noodle soup with grilled cheese...i didn't think i was sick from lunch. around 1:30 i was still feeling pretty nauseous with no end in sight. this lead me to think that maybe, just maybe, we got lucky with our trying to conceive efforts. so i ran upstairs and took a home pregnancy test. this was the result:
see that super super super faint pink line to the right of the dark pink line? (you can click on the pic) yeah, well i wasn't sure that i was REALLY seeing it either. so i ran downstairs and made B look. (nevermind that he was eating) he said that he kinda saw a line too. well the pamplet says that ANY line, regardless how faint is positive. well since i wasn't sure if we were really seeing it or if we were really wanting to see it, i ran and bought another test. this time digital. i waited over 2 hours to pee again, and then took that one...it was much more clear:
WE ARE PREGNANT! i could barely believe it! i tested early...3 days early. and i had no signs of ovulating this month at all (my "sign" is usually unbearable pain/cramps) so i was beyond shocked. yesterday, i went to Dr. P's office to have it confirmed. after having blood drawn and anxiously waiting 10 minutes theirs too, was positive! so i got to walk down the hall and schedule my first appt and find out my due date: none other than auntie michelle's birthday, October 23, 2010. so if sweetcheeks* arrives like his/her brothers all have {2-4 weeks early} we'll have a newborn by then! do i know how to give the coolest birthday gifts or what?!

*for now at least, baby #4 shall be blog named sweetcheeks. i may change this, a ton.

we immediately told the boys, explaining that mommy had a teeny tiny baby growing in my tummy. and that each day the baby would grow a little and my tummy would grow a little and by halloween, they would have a new brother or sister. both bubba and pooks are thrilled, and surprisingly really seem to 'get' it. peanut, well he's a man of few words and while it will be a big adjustment for him, i'm sure he'll do just fine. bubba swears that ''there is just one baby girl in there mommy'' and man oh man do i hope he's right! shortly after telling them the news, he wanted to color me a picture.
 yeah, thats me. with 2 left feet and a big ol' baby in my tummy. i freaking ♥ that kid!
