Day 53: August 25th, 2010

I can't believe it's happening - on May 6th, 2011 Paige is going to be a big sister! I know the picture is very faint but it's very easy to see irl.

I realized that I was 11 dpo this morning and I had some internet cheapies left over from when we were TTC Paige, so I figured I might as well test. I truly didn't expect anything. I did some housework and forgot about the test for a little bit. Then I realized I forgot to check the results so I did and lo and behold, there was a really really faint line. It still didn't register with me though because I've had so many false positives and evap lines on the cheap tests. So I gave it plenty of time to dry (I know it says you can't read the results after 10 minutes but it doesn't even finish drying in that time frame) and went back and there was still a tiny line. I e-mailed my husband (because I canNOT keep a secret) and he told me to go out and buy some real pregnancy tests.

So I rushed Paige off to Target, bought the tests (I'm pretty sure the cashier was giving me the side eye), got home & tested right away. I tried to walk away but I couldn't handle it, I had to know right away. I watched the dye as it went over the test line and held my breath. At first, I thought I saw nothing but then not even 10 seconds later this small pink line appeared! I called my husband and we freaked out quietly to each other. We're so thrilled that we're going to have 2 under 2! Paige will only be 14 months old when I deliver. Scary but so exciting all at the same time!

I guess I should have seen it coming a little. All week I've had terrible headaches (I never get headaches) and I've been super emotional (also very rare for me). We decided not to tell family until our first ultrasound (~11 weeks), possibly even our gender ultrasound (16 weeks) because last time, my MIL got a little crazy on us.

So here's the soon-to-be big sister!

For so long she would only eat solids from me. No idea why! Recently she started letting my husband feed her too which is good news. I really love feeding her though, I love how she bounces around all excited to eat then opens her mouth and takes huge bites!

Paige has a love affair with our TV remotes. She even has her favorite ones and has learned she can use this one to turn the TV on by chewing in the right places lol. The pajamas she's wearing are the ones I got at the Gap. So soft and adorable, I wish they made them in my size!!
