Since Chris and I went from just being friends to dating and to getting engaged and married all within about three months, we were technically still getting to know each other even within our marriage. I was learning about his quirks and we were both learning more about each other’s personalities. I was still in my last year of college. Two and a half months after getting married, we were expecting a baby boy! I cried and was very upset when I found out that I was pregnant, because there was only one time that it would have even been a possibility and well, that was enough. I cried when I took my pregnancy test at Smoothie King, my work and I saw that it was positive! Of course, my boss gave me one of her two tests after she took one and found out that she was prego, too. She was ecstatic and I was…well, depressed. I was so scared of giving birth. I had been afraid of it since I was a little girl. I also did not want to have a baby so early in our marriage. Chris’ exact words on the phone when I told him were, “I know you are sad about it, but I am STOKED!”
Soon after that, we bought our first house and another puppy. The puppy was my idea and well, so was the house. He kind of just went with it all. He is a great husband, because he really does just want me to be happy. Sometimes, he probably needs to say no, though. (lol) Soon after all of that, we were left with no choice, but to buy another car. This is where I will introduce you to my mother-in-law. She is awesome. Enough said. I love her. She is honest and I like that. She has helped us financially and in so many other ways. She loaned us four grand, so we could get a car. We payed her back when we got our tax return the next year.
Our baby boy was born on June 16, 2011, which was exactly nine days after our one-year anniversary! He is the greatest blessing that I could ask for, though.
