I haven’t blogged in a while and although I’ve missed it, I haven’t really wanted to write because I’m quite enjoying the solemnity of Lent. Much has happened since Lent started that I would like to write about, including my 24th birthday and a trip to our soon-to-be new home, Raleigh. But these topics will have to wait until a later date because there is another, more important reason that I am breaking my Lenten silence: I’m expecting!
I took a pregnancy test yesterday after I got home from work. I took it not because I suspected I was pregnant, but because it was about as soon as I could find out if I indeed was. I sat staring at the two little pink lines, imagining grandiose ways of telling my husband (including a cake that said “Congratulations Daddy”) before I promptly picked up the phone, called him at his office and blurted out the news. We are, of course, elated but we decided we are going to wait a few months before telling our friends and family. It’s nice to have our “little secret” that we can privately cherish until it becomes a little more obvious. I will admit though that with a trip to visit family next week, I will have a hard time not blurting it out! That’s where this post comes in, at least I get the chance to tell someone, it’s so hard to contain the joy of a new life inside of me!
