the day we found out about you.

by december 22, 2009, i hadn’t been feeling well for a few days.  i tried to eat macaroni and cheese (my favorite) one day for lunch, and everything about it repulsed me–the smell, the taste, everything.  i was slightly nauseous, tired, and overheated all the time.  we finally, after several days of this, put 2 and 2 together and took a test.  that second line was faint, but it was most certainly there:

i must have read the directions all the way through 4 or 5 times.  we took 3 more tests, covering 2 different brands, until i was finally convinced.  we hugged, we cried, and it the midst of it all travis was smart enough to grab a camera and snap this:

notice the shock on my face and the tears in my eyes, still holding the test.

we kept all 4 tests, though none are readable now.  i just can’t wait to meet our baby.  august feels so far away.
