A Day I Will Never Forget

I will never forget this day...this was the day that David and I decided that we wanted to expand our little family, beyond our 4-legged children. We had talked about having a baby quite frequently but it was always something we were excited for in the future. However, this night was different.  This was the night that we both knew we were ready! We made a nice dinner together and sat out on our deck with a glass of wine and talked all night about our hopes for the future. We sat there and David looked me straight in the eyes and said, "We're ready!" It was a moment I will never forget. We just knew this was the perfect time for us. This was the night that we both decided we were going to start trying to get pregnant when I got back from my girls trip to Vegas in August. 

David will be a third year in dental school next summer so it will be good timing. He will be in clinicals and will have a lot less of a class workload. I am also in a great position with my photography business to quit my event coordinating job at DSI once I go on maternity leave. This way I will be able to pretty much be a stay at home mom, which I am so excited to be able to do. This is something David and I both decided on many years ago. I will never forget the feeling I had that night. The thought of bringing a baby into this world that is a part of me and a part of the man I love is just so amazing to me! I'm so excited about the thought of being pregnant I can’t even image the feeling I will have when I am pregnant. 

We talked about baby names and all the fun things we can’t wait to do with our little one. Vacations, Trips to the Zoo, Children’s Museum, Pumpkin Patch, Apple Orchard...the list goes on and on! We just sat there for hours talking about how excited we are for everything to come. I will always hold that night close to my heart. 

We are beyond excited to begin our journey as first-time parents with our family and friends by our side.  We are excited for this new chapter in our life and I can't wait to experience this crazy and exciting journey with my best friend. We hope you enjoy our blog and journey as first time parents!
