The most wonderful month of all the months! (in my opinion) Oh beautiful September, you are finally here. Why do I love the month of September so much? I promise, Im not just saying this because September is MY birthday month. September is the home to a few birthdays of close friends and cousins. Not to mention my sister Marcy and of course sweet Oliver who will be turning one at the end of the month. My good friend Laura will be having her baby girl (any day) in this wonderful month along with their 2nd wedding anniversary. My parents celebrate their 32nd wedding anniversary. And something very special happened on September 22, 2010. I found out I was pregnant with Ardo. Oh this month and my love for it.

Heres a short story about the best birthday gift I could have given myself! I'll never forget joking with Laura on a Friday, telling her I was a few days late while we were prepping for her wedding. I didnt feel any different. My cycle had been a week late the month before so I figured I still had time. The days went by and while Jerry and I were in the drive through at In-N-Out, again I joked, that was Sunday. By Tuesday when nothing came for me, I figured maybe I should I test. Of course I had a test handy as I usually do. I took it, started the shower and hopped in like any other day. I peeked outta the shower to see if the test was done and lo and beyond it read "PREGNANT". Then I started giggling uncontrollably. I couldn't believe it 3 days before my 26th birthday. And thats when I thought....its a boy! I just know it. And he was.

Something weird :: I have no pictures to for this post. Hope you still enjoy. And thank you for the kind words on my last post about Ardo and walking. Its nice to know I'm not alone!

sidenote:: Im not trying to ignore September 11 by any means. I just didnt want to mention it in this post. Although I can still recall everything about that day as well.

    1. I was dying to say it but I promised Jerry I wouldnt. He was shocked I was actually able to keep a secret. =)
