The day I dropped Jayla off for her first day of preschool, September 7th 2016, our lives would change forever. We gained an addition. What kind of additon? A cat? A dog? No. We gained a BABY! 😳
By this point I was pretty certain I was expecting our FOURTH baby. It was just a matter of taking the test and today was the day. I swear the two lines appeared instantaneously. I thought perhaps it’s wrong. That’s way too quick. But I knew it was right.
As the excitement of being pregnant again set in, I started planning different ways to tell the hubby. I wanted it to be special as the very first time we found out we were going to be parents.
After about two weeks of coming up with excuses for my growing belly. Bloatedness. Eating too much. Not exercising enough. Blah. Blah. Blah I decided it was time. I couldn’t hide it much longer. My belly was getting out of control. You should have seen it!
I thought about hiring a photographer but decided against it. In hindsight I wish I had but it doesn’t matter now.
Anyway we drove to the National Harbor that Sunday evening. It was a beautiful fall day. We missed sunset. I was a bit, okay, A lOT upset. I thought about not telling him but I had already bought tickets to ride the National Eye.
I called one of my girlfriends who talked me back up to doing it.
The is like the London Eye but on a much smaller scale. I wanted to do it somewhere we havent been.
I got the kiddos in on the fun. They had no idea what the signs said 😀
Whew, now a girl cab breathe. I can let my belly just hang lose, yesss!
