Surprise!

I feel like I need to do some back tracking. Ben and I got married in October of 2011 and in February of 2012 we decided one Friday that since I was a few days late I would go get a pregnancy test and we would take it together after work. I went on my lunch break to get the test and by the time I got back to work I had decided there was no way in hell I could wait until 6pm that evening. I headed straight for the restroom. It was there at work (with Ben in a meeting) that I found out I was knocked up pregnant! Surprise! I wasn't as fond of being pregnant as I thought I would be but I'll save that rant for another post. I will also make sure to post about all my pregnancy "must haves" and monthly favorites like this Baby Ritmo. I used it every night before I went to bed and swear that Charlie is as smart, happy and content as he is because of it!
9 months later and BAM! Our little Thanksgiving turkey arrived and we were parents! Charles Beau Reeder graced us with his presence 4 days early on November 19th at 4:42pm. Weighing in at 7lbs. 11oz. and 20.5in. We were so sleep deprived for the first two weeks I couldn't tell my ass from my elbow. Looking back now it really wasn't that bad and definitely worth it!
