How I told Danny...

Hubs and I agreed that I wouldn't take a pregnancy test until I missed my period,  just to  avoid unnecessary disappointment from a false negative incase it was too early to tell. 

11/7 As I was cleaning up the kitchen after Sienna's lunch....this feeling came over me,
 I just knew it, I HAD to be. Sienna was still sitting in her high chair watching a video so it gave me the perfect opportunity to run to the bathroom quickly and take a test. 

Though it was SUPER early...those lines turned pink before I was even done peeing! ahhh I couldn't stop smiling! first person I told was my little BFF of course :) I said "Sienna! you're gonna be a big sister" she looked at me confused...."seshter?" 

I was so tempted to tell Danny right away, I was too excited to contain myself... but I didn't wanna tell him via text. I had to think of a better way. I had 3 hours before he was home from work.

Ever since we went apple picking, he would ask daily if Id make a pie. Since we were 'trying' that month I figured I could incorporate the pie into some cute announcement idea since he wanted it so badly...seriously, he would nag daily.

So I wrote a note that I put on the garage door to the house, it would be the first thing he'd see when he got out of the car and right before he got in the house

it read: "Since you've been such a great husband, there is a surprise for you in the oven"

Naturally, he walked over to the oven but to his disappointment...there was no pie, just another note that read:

"No, not this oven :)" 

So he ran upstairs.....I stood at the top of the staircase with the pregnancy test.....I made him a little "baby" pie anyway....with a little leaf and a #2 on it. Those notes are now the start of this babys keepsake box.

Here is a video

after that, he ate his pie & we talked about all things baby as big sis to be took her infamous 3 hour nap :)
