Happy News

What would my next step be?

Today I decided to go into town to check my e-mail, so leaving Landon & Samuel on the beach, I headed into Eastsound to grab some coffee & use an Internet cafe.

My period had been late, but I was convinced it was on its way, so early this week, I hadn't given it much thought. By today, I became suspicious that I might be pregnant based on symptoms I was having. After checking my e-mail, I went to the grocery store, and with hands shaking, took an EPT. Instantly positive! I was shocked, happy, and overwhelmed, but mostly extremely happy. I drove straight home, pulling over once to make sure the test was still positive...the line had only darkened. When I got home and shared the happy news with Landon, he was a little stunned at first, but quickly became excited, and we both realized that the timing of this couldn't have been more ideal.

Looks like the baby will be born in early December, and Samuel will be just 2 months shy of his 3rd birthday by then, so he will have a playmate, and better yet--this baby will be born in the winter, like Samuel, so all his baby clothes will fit in season.

I always wanted two children, but had thought we'd wait until Samuel was 5, when I'd finished with nursing school. But, because we'd already decided I should drop out of school for now, this news couldn't have come at a better time.

I spent most of today feeling happy inside, and feeling content with the decision I'd made about school, and with the news of a new Kuhn baby on the way.

The picture above was taken earlier in the week--Samuel is watching a VHS Disney movie, and I'm reading a book that I just couldn't put down--Jeannette Walls' memoir, "The Glass Castle."

LOVE what you've done with your blog! Congrats on the baby news....having 2 seems like it will be such a challenge, but it is oh so wonderful! Having 3 is even better! I so feel for you being sick and trying to take care of your little one. I've definitely been there before!

karli! i didn't know that you are a blogger too! i'll add you to my ever-expanding blogroll.

and congrats on the new little one taking root inside you! so cool. 3 years seems like a good space. we want at least 2 years between the next one, but we'll see. 3 years might be better. i hope this pregnancy goes as smoothly as Samuel's.
