you + me + our little one :)
our first family photo xo
So today i am smiling from ear to ear in typing our happy news.
Early april 1- April fools day i told Mr.handsome how funny it would be to tell our mom's ( who of course have been asking where their grandchildren were) as an april fool's joke that we were pregnant. but we didn't my mom would've not found it so funny & drop kicked me halfway to the moon and back :) but just a few days later we had an answer to a very special prayer come true for us... we were pregnant. and it was no joke :)
we kept quiet. we prayed. we waited. we prayed some more. and we were more than thankful for our little secret. the weeks passed & we got this beautiful little portrait of our little one confirming how cute our little bundle of joy is teeny tiny cute. ( as per my sister norma's idea...) we waited for mother's day to tell our mom's. I packed a little kraft box with a framed portrait of the the mister & i - sadly we have never given our families our pictures -hahaa oops. and behind the picture frame we placed a photo -just like the one i'm holding in the photo above - tucked behind the frame. It said "hello grandma!" in spanish :)
and we waited. we met my family first. we were at a restaurant and i placed the box in front of my mom. & asked her to open it. She pulled out the framed photo and did the usual Awww.... and then i told her to look inside the box again... and she did. she pulled out the baby photo and she had it upside down :) and it took her a moment and she started to cry. she was speechless. and let me just say that hands down won the best mother's day gift of the year award :) people. my mama cried the rest of the time over her chicken fajitas like nobody's business. it was kind of sad if you didn't know she was actually crying for joy hahaa :) so hugs all around. joy. complete joy.
The same thing happened with mr.handsome's mom. she did the aww... with the framed photo & we asked her to look in her box again.. and she took a moment to see & read & then we all hugged with lots of happy smiles. it was wonderful. Mother's day was the best day of this year. Well, its definitely up there with the day we found out we were pregnant :)
from the moment i knew i wanted to date mister handsome... i knew before then he would be an amazing father. And that impressed me very much. You never really think about that when you date. I prayed a little prayer for a husband just like him :)
the mister is very unlike any man. he likes spending time with kids & family. He has become an amazing husband & my best friend. We had the best honest advice ever... wait to have kids. Thankfully we were blessed with 2 years of just us after marrying. And even though i knew i was getting older... never thought about "starting"a family in my thirties... but God has perfect timing. And it is all so good indeed.
we are living a new dream. a happy new start to a new chapter in our lives. thank you for letting me share a little bit of our story today. i hope it brings a little cheer your way. I am now in my second trimester and we are expecting our little one early december 15 and cannot wait to share more news in the next few weeks as to if our little one is a baby girl or boy. :)
sending you love,
-d & mr.handsome
and our little one xoxo
