On February 3, 2014 our little world changed.
I woke up that Monday morning pretty excited and anxious, even for a mama who had spent half of the night sleeping on the couch.  I had been having the feeling that I was pregnant for several days but was trying to wait as long as possible before taking a test.  (Warning, TMI ALERT... See, usually the week before my period starts I have quite a bit of spotting, but this week was different, there had been nothing.)  It was the same way when I found out I was pregnant with Wyatt so my suspicions were high.  Luckily I woke up that morning before Wyatt so I had a little time to myself.  I took the test, and sure enough, two pink lines showed up.  I was so excited, I couldn't stop smiling and just saying thank you!  
Sean and I hadn't necessarily been trying, but we also hadn't been taking preventative measures.  We knew we wanted our kiddos close in age, and had plans to start trying when Wyatt turned one.  I mean, I'm not sleeping now so why not just continue that trend (totally kidding, sorta).  
Wyatt woke up shortly and, of course, I couldn't keep it a secret from him. I was so excited, saying, you're going to be a big brother (you can imagine his excitement)!!  We went about our morning routine and I got him down for his nap.  I knew I wanted to SURPRISE Sean, like I did when I was pregnant with Wyatt, and I had the perfect idea! There's a store in town that has BIG BROTHER tees, so I knew that was our first stop after Wyatt's nap. Sadly, they were completely out of the one I was looking for, so I went on to plan B....make it myself.  I had some iron-on transfers from another project so I got busy making that during Wyatt's afternoon nap. I also framed the pregnancy test, just like I did with Wyatt's. 
When Sean got home from work I had Wyatt sitting in his booster seat, ready to surprise! 
I actually recorded Sean as he came in the door, and, of course, he was over the moon excited!
