Happy Birthday, Momma!

I guess DB is just trying to wish me a happy birthday and remind me that I have a little one growing inside of me. I woke up with morning sickness for the first time today :(. What a great birthday present this year! Ha ha! Just trying to remember that that means the baby is doing well. I up early to eat a snack and have been sitting here reading all my birthday wishes on facebook.

You know you are pregnant when...

You know you are pregnant when this is what rides around in the floorboard of your car:

You know you are pregnant when you eat lunch at 10:30 because you feel like if you don't, you really might die:

Telling the Pourciaus

So we FINALLY got to tell my parents and Leigh this week. I had been avoiding all three for the last week on the phone so I would not give the secret away before we saw them in person this week. We had talked about different ways to share the news and I read about this idea online. My mom thought it was funny how you can google ways to tell your parents you are pregnant. What we did was get my family to take a picture with me. Stephen had the camera and said "Okay on the count of three every one say Casey's pregnant!" Ha ha! It was perfect. Leigh started screaming and crying. Dad was shocked. Mom, who did not cry when I went to college or at my wedding, just starts bawling! Ugly crying. We all got so tickled watching her. Needless to say, none of them saw that coming. It feels even more real now that they know. Glad we are not having to keep it a secret from them. We are still keeping it hush hush until we go to the MD in January. Just a few more weeks to go. We are now 6 weeks along and DB is the size of a sweet pea! Its grown so fast. It was the size of a poppy seed when we found out!

This is the exact moment. Love their expressions. Leigh was still trying to pose. Mom was completely surprised. Dad was half smiling for the pictures and half confused. Wish we had recorded it all to have on video too.

New photo edits

Bama or LSU??

I could not resist taking a picture with this yesterday. Ha ha! I know the Pourciaus will have a fit when they see this. No, we have not decided if this baby will pull for the Tide or the Tigers. We will have to do alot of prayer and search the scriptures to make this decision for Doodle Bug. Ha ha! Maybe we can decide by July. Hope so!

Telling the Inlaws

Mt Harmony is getting ready for Night in Bethlehem which mean my inlaws are spending every second at the church getting ready. Stephen was dying to tell them so we decided to just find them at the church yesterday to let them know. We had to tell someone because we were about to pop!! Plus that was the church where we were married so we thought it was fitting. I wanted to share the news in a creative way so we found a pack of bibs. One saying "grandma's favorite". The other saying "how can you resist this face". We wrapped them up and then headed to the church. I called Mrs. Debbie and told them to come out to the car to come get a Thanksgiving sussie I had for them. They did not think anything of it because this is pretty common for me to do. They all walked around the building and Stephen and I got out of the car. I handed Mrs. Debbie the gift bag and Chase and Mr. Mark were standing nearby. She opened the bag and looked down at the bibs, then she looked at me then looked at the bibs. She kept doing this for a good 10 seconds. Mr. Mark looked just as confused. When she looked at me again I just said "Yes!". Then she started screaming. Ha ha! Not the reaction I had expected but still so funny. Then she started leaning against the car like her legs were going to go out from under her. Then the hugs started. Mr. Mark was so funny. He said two things I will never forget, 1."I guess that means I'm old now." 2. "I thought maybe Casey had baked something!"- I am! A bun in the oven! Ha ha- they always get stuff when Im making new recipes. Chase's response was exactly what we expected. He smiled and nodded. He will be a great uncle! By the time I remembered to take a picture the guys had gone back to work but Mrs. Debbie was happy to show off the bibs with Stephen. They are all thrilled and Mrs. Debbie has already said July feels so far away. I agree! That seems like 10 years from now.

I CANNOT wait to tell my parents and Leigh this week. We are waiting since we will actually get to see them all in person for Thanksgiving. I already have something made up to surprise them with also. Can't wait to see their responses either. I will get some pictures then too.


Guess who's having a baby!?!?! We are!!! Yes, I know! We are walking around in a daze, shocked too! Ha ha! Got to love God's timing. We found out Friday 11/19/10. For the next 24 hours, we just walked around the house hardly saying two words to each other trying to take it all in. Don't get me wrong, we are thrilled but just having a hard time fully comprehending what is happening. We are doing much better now!Looks like we are due around July 29, 2011.

My practical hubby immediately started looking at the bank account and doing math. Haha! I just cried because that is apparently what I do now. Earlier this week before I took the test, I found myself crying while watching The Biggest Loser. Then I cried about the fact that I had cried over it! This is something that has continued. I cried three times this morning before we could even get to church. Haha! Poor Stephen, just looks at me and shakes his head. Sorry, babe! It has been a real joy to live with me this week ;). Hope this does not continue the whole 9 months!

Right now we are keeping it hush hush. We will not go to the doctor until January 5 (which feels like FOREVER!!) and then start spreading the good news.

This blog was started for a couple reasons. For me to document this part of our lives and keep a journal. Also so our family and friends that do not live nearby can also be apart of this journey with us. It will be set to private to protect Doodle Bug but we do not mind any family and close friends reading so just let me know if you know of anyone that needs to be added to the invite list of readers.

Doodle Bug- why this name? Well after walking around for three days calling it "it", we decided we wanted to have something else to make it more official. So, Stephen decided on Doodle (which was Chase's nickname when he was a baby). Chase did say we should name it after him, so here you go Chase :)

We will be updating regularly on all things baby. I will also try to keep up our other blog with recipes and life events.
