"Goodbye Bag" said the cat

We've got news!

I've been missing in action from my blog lately. Mostly because I am exhausted 24-7! I bring you...the story of B-Mac (Baby-Mac)...so far.

It was a stormy night and Tim was feeling romantic....errrrrtttt.....just kidding, we'll leave that part of the story out and pick it up again a few weeks later.

My body knew before I did. Although only a day late, I knew, so I went to buy a test from Walgreens. Three minutes later...
My immediate response was to breathlessly repeat....okay....okay...okay...okay....over and over while searching for some tissue paper to wrap up the test for Tim - because for some reason that was my immediate response. Not finding any, I went BACK to walgreens

Tim came home, opened his "present" and had no words besides.... SHUT UP...which he repeated over and over (funnily enough - my father-in-law had the same response). We processed the news over Austin's pizza. That's class, my friends.

A few weeks of nausea later (during which, Tim assumed his role of pregnant-lady-slave quite well), we had our first doctor's appointment and saw B-Mac for the first time - and MAN was it dancing all around - flexing its little stiff arms and legs. Now, it was real....eeeeeeeeee! Who knew you could be so terrified and excited at the same time!
We called the fams - who promptly started sorting out who would be called what grandma/grandpa name.

And started learning about all the magic of pregnancy...increased bra sizes (seriously, two sizes within weeks!!), excess saliva, dizziness, breathlessness, acne, etc.etc. No seriously, where is the magic.

We're now 16 weeks in, planning a move (anyone want to live in Westlake, we're subleasing!), and looking forward to finding out if we're having a boy or a girl (hopefully at the next appointment). Oh god...and aside...the fashion challenges! I wish i had all the dallas options to shop from. How many jersey dresses can one pregnant lady own? (thank god they make pregnancy spanx)

Who knew that cute little boy with the mullet who asked me out in 7th grade would end up being my wonderful husband and a wonderful daddy-to-be! I LOVE YOU T-MAC!
