How Mommy & Daddy met...

Daddy and I met in July 2003 when our
friends (Zona & Melanie) put us
together through a group event.
I wasn't sure I wanted to meet Daddy.
He was military and military police.
I wanted to be steered away from the
military life after growing up in it.

We were going to meet at the
local bowling alley in Sierra Vista.
I took my time getting ready and was
even late, I really wasn't ready for this.
Only a few months before I swore off
guys and wanted to focus on school.

I got there an met Daddy, a
cute, tall, skinny nerdy guy.
We barely spoke but exchanged numbers.
I didn't speak to him again until
August 10, 2003 when we both
went to our friend's BBQ.

We spoke, teased each other and I
even shot Daddy with water, I
believe we even had our first kiss.
Later in the evening he followed me
home so I could ask permission to
go to the movies with him.

Now you have to understand life was different.
I was 19, going to Cochise College,
working and still living at home
with Grandma & Grandpa.
There were rules, I was to be protected.
Yes I was allowed some freedom, but there
was certain things that needed to be done.
All friends and boyfriends were to be brought
home to meet Grandpa and Grandma, no exceptions.
I even had a curfew.

This evening was different I just met this
awesome guy and he asked to take me to the
movies so he had to go home with me, one to
drop off Grandpa's truck and two to meet my parents.
All went fine, even grandpa was nicer than usual
and our dog Max even went belly up for Daddy, that
had never happened with a boy before.
Our only draw back, uncle Joe wanted to see
the same movie, so we kinda had a chaperon.
So it was Daddy, Uncle Joe
and me on a first date, haha.

We went to see Bad Boys 2.
After the movie we dropped uncle Joe off at
home and Daddy and I went to wash his Neon.

That first date, was fun and different
and lead to us become inseparable.
Daddy would even come to our house
after work, sleep on the couch and
eat meals with us.
Grandma felt bad for him, he was SO skinny!
So she cooked the first two weeks we were
dating until one evening she got alittle
carried away with the seasoning for the
spaghetti sauce, and we ended up
having pizza delievered.

Daddy and I spent a lot of time
together, movies, day trips, and
even visits with Grandpa Lamb.
I was able to meet Daddy's family in
September for Grandpa Keith's birthday.

As fall turned into winter we got
closer and closer and I knew I loved
your daddy more than anything.
On Christmas Day 2003 your
Daddy asked me to marry him.
Of course I said yes!

The next few months were a blur
with the Wedding being planned.


Hello Little One,

We are so excited you're on your way!
Daddy is finally getting the idea that
there will be another Lamb in the house
in just 9 months! About a week ago
January 13, 2011, my body was feeling
different and I knew we'd been trying to
make a baby so maybe just maybe my hopes
had come true. So I bought a home pregnancy
test to find out!

Daddy was home for the day and we
were both doing projects around the
house. He was working on orders, I was
cleaning for a Tupperware Party. I took
the test and it was POSITIVE!
I was SO excited and showed your daddy
right away! He stared at it a bit stunned
then said, "OK." You're dad is a man of few
words and hardly ever speaks his mind,
unless I bug him ALOT.

He and I talked about our next few steps.
Getting a Doctors Appointment (just to be
sure the home test was true), who and when
to tell every one you're on your way, if
you would be a boy or a girl, and other
silly stuff.

You're grandpa is currently a contractor
working in Iraq and came home for a 2 week
stay, so we took him and grandma out to
breakfast and to the new Walmart (Sierra
Vista isn't very big.) As we went to pay
Grandpa and Grandma wondered off so I had
to sneak back into the store to get vitamins
and your Daddy insisted I get a digital home
pregnancy test. He wasn't sure the first 2
were right! I took the Digit tests and both
of course came back POSITIVE!
Your daddy was just having trouble taking in
the news. We'll be telling your Grandma, Grandpa
and Uncle Joe next week once we are ALL together.

I made my appointment for this week Jan 20,
2011 and your daddy joined me to hear the
results himself. I didn't take your dad to
the room with me because I had expected an
exam, that's been postponed to February 1st.
So I took the pregnancy test yet again for
the Doctor and it came back POSITIVE!
I had to ask the Doctor to pretty please
tell your Daddy in person, that yes I
am in fact pregnant.

The Doctor (Elisabeth Smith M.S.N., A.N.P.)
brought your Daddy to the room and told him
that the test was POSITIVE
and that we'll be having a baby, yay!
We spent the day doing a few errands,
including going to Hastings to pick up a
few Baby books, we even found one for daddy!
"What to expect when your wife is expanding!"
Daddy is happy and kinda in shock but he's
getting over it pretty well, he even bought
a few safety devices today for cabinets and such.

Now don't think that because your Daddy was
acting funny about all this means he doesn't
want you. We both want you very much. It's
been a long journey for us to get to this
step in our lives and geeze is it a BIG step!
I'll be telling you more about that soon,
but for now I'm just excited to say that you
are wanted and loved already and we can't
wait to see you in September.

Love always,

How I'm feeling:
My breasts are swollen and sore, and seem
to have gotten bigger in just a matter of
weeks. I have times through out the day I
get very sleepy. I tend to burp alot
throughout the day, something I hope will
continue if it means I get to avoid Morning
Sickness. I've had bouts of nausea, but so
far no vomiting. My legs feel weak at times,
but it's not to bad. My tummy has alot of
bubbles to which I was told today by Daddy
that I couldn't eat breaded chicken because
it causes gas. He's no fun, but I got what
I wanted anyway, and paid for it. I'm not
eating as much as I normally do, but most
of what I'm eating if healthier, minus the
chicken. I'm excited, and yet worried that
there may be complications. I just want
you to be a happy healthy Baby.

How old are you:
As of today we are predicting you to
be 5 weeks, 2 days. You're expected
due date is September 22, 2011.

Next Appointment:
February 1, 2011, 9:15AM.

First hour is for family history
paper work, second is an exam with
our Doctor Peter Van Oosten, M.D..
