Its My Baby and I'll Cry If I Want To...

Ok well, I had my first official "hormonal cryfest" last night.
Was it at all justified? Yes.
Was it a little out of proportion? Yes.
I was stressed out about looking for a new apartment.
(We're in a 1BR and need a 2BR to make room for Baby E!).
So, the money stressed me out. And while I was doing dishes, I started thinking about looking for a new place. I also started thinking of needing to buy a crib and all sorts of things so...when Mr. E asked what was wrong...
I certainly cried like I hadn't cried all year.
Even after calming down, Mr. E made me some hot tea, and I sat drinking my tea, eating my wheat thins holding back the tears. I wanted to just cry into my evening snack. But, I managed.
In the end, I'm quite sure that won't be my only "cryfest" these next few months.
But it certainly was an interesting first time experience!

I Pee, Therefore I am...

Well, just this past Thursday night I took the ultimate of all tests.
The one test in life that you can never study for.
The one test that you may never be 100% ready to pass -
but regardless, you know that the results are permanent.

The test being a Home Pregnancy Test! Yes, and we passed!
We are going to be parents!

There is so much to do. So much to think about and consider.
But no matter what we have on our plate the most important thing to remember
is that we are starting our family. We will do whatever it takes to make the best life we can
for ourselves and our soon-to-be-baby E.
