Coming July 2013!!

  We got the best Christmas present ever this year (a few months ago) and found out we are finally expecting our first child!! It took some faith, a couple doctors, fertility help, lots of patience, and great love for each other and now we've got a little Thacker on the way! We are so excited and nervous about it all but so unbelievable happy.

  I had already planned on how I would tell Steven by making a red onesie with a Star Trek logo on it. Since we were first married we watch 2-4 episodes of Star Trek each week to relax after work (usually eating dinner at the same time too) so it's just become our "thing". Although since we hadbeen trying for a while, I figured I had loads of time to make the onesie. So, that day (thankfully I had work off) I ran to Michael's, bought some fabric paint and rushed home to make the onesie and hoped it would be dry by the time Steven got home.

  I put the onesie in a box and the positive test underneath. When he got home from work and we were about to sit down and eat and watch our show I said I had something for him. He opened the box, pulled out the outfit and said, "Oh, that's REALLY cute!!" Then paused, looked at me kind of curious and said, "Wait, is this an announcement?" I had just started treatments a month and a half before, and we weren't expecting anything for 6 months to a year, so he REALLY wasn't expecting me to say yes. So when I DID say yes, I have never seen his eyes get wider! Then a long paragraph of, ARE YOU SERIOUS?! REALLY?! YOU'RE PREGNANT?! REALLY?! OH MY GOSH?! REALLY?! - ensued for a good 5 minutes until he came over kissed me, rubbed my belly, kissed me again and said in utter disbelief, "WE'RE PREGNANT!!! HOLY COW!!!" over and over all night long.

  I told myself  when we found out it would take a while to get pregnant, that I wouldn't buy anything baby related until we were actually pregnant. So now I was going nuts scouring the internet, looking at all things baby, FINALLY going through the baby aisle at stores and loving every minute of it. It's definitely a new thing for me!

  We found a travel combo on sale with the stroller made by the bicycle company of Schwinn oddly enough. We couldn't help it and bought it the first month. Here's Dax testing to make sure everything is safe.

  Our little one is due July 2nd (REALLY hoping they don't come on the 4th!!!) so we only have 6 more months to prepare. It's already going by so fast!
