This Is A Pretty Good Story

This is pretty good story...I may or may not have stolen a bit of the title from my dear, sweet cousins Emily and Elisabeth. :]
It's not so much of a riveting and heartwarming story as theirs, but its a good story, nonetheless. (Also, I love finding ways to use that word. Its a great one!)
One day, in July, I woke up feeling very strange. I usually do feel strange, but this morning I felt extra strange. Partly because it was 6 o'clock in the morning on my day off and partly because my stomach was doing flips. Odd.
So, I decided on a whim to take one of THOSE tests. You know which ones I'm talking about.
My little drowsy head was still very groggy when the test result came up, and I had to look at it twice. I looked at the screen, then in the mirror, then back at the screen, then back at the mirror. Um.
I casually walked back into our bedroom. "Um, honey?"
Tyson (still sleeping): "Grumble grumble, huh?"
Me: "Heh. I'm pregnant."
Tyson, literally leaping out of bed: "What??"
Yep! That's the pretty good story!
We're having a baby!
Well, I'm having a baby, I mean, I'm the one who is pregnant after all. But we're going to have a baby! We're going to be parents! (Weird.)
I am basically stoked. And can't even believe how blessed we are. I mean, the fact that our Heavenly Father is entrusting us with one of His sweet spirits is incredibly humbling.
I cannot WAIT to see this little sweet bean. (This is what I lovingly refer to it right now. My little sweet bean.)
Most everyone thinks we are having a boy. (Which would be great because, well, I don't know how to do girl hair.)
Very few think we are having a girl. (Which greatly leads me to believe we are having a girl.)
I was pretty sick for about 2 months, but I'm coming out of it now, for which I am very grateful. (This baby was FREQUENTLY referred to as my little sweet bean while I was sick.)
I cannot eat beef. It basically is the most disgusting thing ever.
I love love love Cafe Rio pork. Yikes.
I also love pickles. Typical.
We have names picked out for whether it is a boy or girl. And they are normal names. And they won't be spelled weird. (Because what child wants to have to go to the first day of school for the rest of their lives and have to correct the teacher on the pronunciation of their name?)
We don't mind sharing our name choices, because frankly, I'm set on the names and nothing anyone says can change that. :]
We are very excited, and feeling very blessed to be welcoming Baby Rollins before Easter!
Also, we find out the gender of my little sweet bean on November 9th!

Ben and Alyssa said...

Congratulations you two! That is so exciting , you will be great parents! Be sure and post on the 9th!

McKinley said...

CONGRATS!! Babies are blessing! You guys are going to be great parents. It gets scary and sometimes you are asking your self "what did we get our selves into?" But that is totally natural and normal. I can't wait to find out what you are having. And no worries if you can't do little girls hair. No one even notices.

Rebecca Hunt said...

Sooooooooooo exciting!!!! Wahooo! Hopefully we'll get to see you guys when we're out there for Thanksgiving? Babies are the best. Especially little sweet ones :)

Daryl said...

Well, I may or may not be holding my breath until the 9th of November! I sure am excited and glad you are starting to feel a bit better. I'll try to remember that you've got a beef thing going, and we'll stick to the pork or chicken dishes. I KNOW you are going to be a wonderful mother (just look at the great parents you have!) and I'm so grateful for you!

Katie Hansen said...
