Disney Runs in the Family is Growing!

I've been a little quiet lately--on the blog, on FB, on IG, on Twitter.  Maybe it's because I'm the world's worst liar.  Maybe it's because I can barely lift my head off a pillow when I'm at home.  And maybe, just maybe, it's all of the above for a very good reason: Our family is growing by two ears!

I wanted a place to share the story, because it's pretty funny and so appropriate for me and Bill.  Why?...well, we found out at Disneyland, of course!  It was Monday, April 27th and we took an impromptu Disney trip for a special Annual Passholder Event.  We arrived on Sunday evening and on the walk back to the hotel, stopped at CVS to pick up a pregnancy test.  Honestly, I didn't expect anything, but since we'd been trying, I wanted to be sure before riding Space Mountain and hitting up Trader Sams!  I woke up early (as I always do), and took the test.  I was stunned when after three minutes there was a faint line.  I shoved Bill in bed telling him to "Wake up--I need you to look at this!  You can go back to sleep after you look!"  See...hilarious!  Like he'd actually go back to sleep after seeing the test!

The geeky two we are jumped right onto Google; me on my laptop, him on his iPad.  Our conclusion was to go back to CVS and get a digital test.  We threw on some clothes and headed out--it must have only been a few minutes past 6 am at this point.  Grabbed a digital test, headed to the hotel, three more minutes, and "YES" appeared.  We were really, truly, 100% pregnant!  We weren't quite ready to share the news, so it was going to take some finessing, since we were meeting up with Chris and Katie at the park.

Oddly enough, Katie's first conversation was about the weird dream she had the night before--I was pregnant and had to move back a corral for the Tinkerbell Half.  Whoa.  She should be a psychic.  For the record, I didn't move corrals, but yep, Tink Half was baby's first half marathon!  This secret was going to be HARD to keep!  We waited a few weeks to tell family and close friends, but now, it's officially out there.

On Tuesday, before going home, we were able to snap a few pictures to help announce the big news.  Of course, we also bought Baby Stater his (or her) first Mickey Mouse.  A special thanks to the photographer at Disneyland.  Isn't it the most perfect picture?  We snapped a few more for ourselves.

I'm so excited for this new adventure, and I'm sure it will be quite the adventure!  We have a long way to go before January 4, 2016, but I'm sure it will fly by.  Diaper Dash here we come!

First visit!
