Yes, two, ..... I took two pregnancy tests....

you can't always believe the first one...

that's why they come in packs of 2 or more!

On February 22, 2007, I found out that we were pregnant. It was a Thursday night and Eric was at the firestation. I had to hold my exciting news for a whole day until the next night when we were both home from work. Thoughts raced through my head during the day. A baby! I had always wanted to be a mom...always. Eric and I had been talking about having a baby for a year. I had stopped taking birth control & started taking prenatal vitamins a year earlier. We had bought a house, I had finished my degree, Eric had the job of his dreams and we knew that we were ready after 6 years of marriage. We tried to get pregnant and it worked the very first month...oh my gosh....the very first month! There was a human, our child, growing inside of me. I was 4 wks and a few days along from my calculations......what a whirlwind. When Eric came home the next night I told him our news with a huge smile on my face, we hugged, kissed and talked about how excited we were to be having a baby.

Who would have thought that one year down the road we would be where we are as a couple, as parents. To have a beautiful baby girl, to have been through the struggles that we have already faced as parents. Looking back I can't even imagine our lives being this way. Eric and I will always have the 'what if's' in the back of our mind, but we LOVE Caleigh to pieces and we can't think of our lives without her. We have a miracle baby girl, we are the parents that I always imagined us being and we have a strengthened relationship through our strifes. The past year has been nothing short of a true blessing.
