On June 22nd, the infamous test was taken and it was POSITIVE! I have never been so overwhelmed with emotions. Nothing but joy. Tears of excitement and disbelief. Laughter and pure smiles for hours! It was an unforgettable day. It was a surprise to me, but even more of a surprise to Sean. He had asked 2 requests a long time ago.. He didn't want to know when I went off birth control, so that he'd be completely surprised and also wanted me to tell him in a cute way. Well as you will see below. That all went out the window. He was VERY SURPRISED but I couldn't think of anything fast enough to do-that was cute. I have never seen Sean so happy in my life! Many of you know Sean, and you know that he is a pretty chipper guy, but since the reveal.. I don't think he has stopped smiling!
That evening I made Sean's favorite meal, and he went out and ran errands while I cooked and when he came home he brought me back beautiful flowers, 2 pregnancy magazines, and an adorable card. He is so romantical and I feel soo overly blessed that he gets to be the father of our children. This child is going to be so SPOILED!
Well as we went throughout the weeks.. I had to keep it a secret because I wanted to make sure everything was ok, so we didnt tell anyone til week 10. We've never kept a secret like this before!
We told our siblings at my sister's world cup party and Sean woke up with the brilliant/crass idea to tell them in a soccer type fashion..
So what did we do.. We bought all our nieces and nephews goodie bags with soccer themed items, within the bag was a soccer ball with our writing on it. See below for the clever idea that SW came up with. I am still a lil embarrassed by it, but i must say it was clever :)
The following week we had my mom over and sean's family. We barbequed and had a very fun evening. Once we all sat down to eat, Sean said grace and at the end of his prayer he said something like: "Thank you Lord for the incredible blessing you have given brianne and I, please continue to keep brianne and the baby healthy." Before he said Amen, Sean's mom was completely freaking out (see pic below: Like mother like son) while my mom was just staring at me in disbelief. It took her a few minutes to finally get it.. it was hilarious.
It was an incredible evening. Oh and ps: Christian is already obsessed with the baby! So Cute!!
We could not be more blessed with the support we have received already. I am going to try to update week by week. I am currently 14 weeks and feeling pretty good.
Please continue to pray for us as we go through this incredible journey!
