Good News Spreads in Montana

So we got back last night from our fun trip up to the ranch. My family had SO much fun and Dutch didn't want to come home at all! He was trying to convince my Dad Lines that he could just work for Dad Folsom up there so they could stay. It was pretty cute. Dutch and Haley did so well with the horses and are now determined that whenever my parents move to a place with more land... they are going to get some horses of their own!

Well.. last July when I went up with J.D. this same weekend to 'meet the parents' he actually let them in on the news that we were getting married. This July trip, we were also able to share some exciting news with both of our families... WE'RE HAVING A BABY!





I went to the doctor to make sure it was for real last Monday... but we waited til this past weekend to tell our families so that we could tell them with everyone there. It was perfect! I loved the little poem that Mal used to tell her parents so I used that as an outline to come up with our own lil poem. It was Haley's bday on Saturday... but of course we couldn't wait that long to tell them.. so we had her open her present on Thursday night just before dinner. In the huge bag with her present in it, I tied a way long string to a ring pop so Haley just pulled and pulled til she found the end of the string which pulled the poem out. She didn't want to read it out loud so she gave it to my Dad and he took care of it. I was already feeling all emotional so I just cried the whole time he was reading it! haha. It was so much fun though to see their reactions.. they can't wait to be grandparents:]


Yes... I realize I still have a season left. And yes, this happened sooner than we'd expected. But we couldn't be more excited! The plan is that I'm just going to play this fall for as long as I can without it being dangerous for me or the baby. As for school next Spring, all of my classes will be online so I can have the baby late March and still finish up and graduate with a precious one month old! We are really ecstatic about the news and know that everything happens when it's supposed to so we know it's right. Now I can have the baby and still be close to my Mom for the first couple months before we have to leave for Vet School. I couldn't be happier that it ended up this way! While I love volleyball and will miss not being able to finish out the season, expanding our little family will be so worth it!

I go in for my first official appointment with the OB on Thursday so we'll find out the details then... but as of now, they think I'm about 6 or 7 weeks along:] I haven't even been sick so it's really been a walk in the park. I'm crossing my fingers that the rest will go this way as well!

Congratulations! I am so tired and sore from giving birth five days ago, but can I tell you that I am already wondering when we can do this again. I love having babies. It's insane, really. Giving birth is so hard, but it is the sweetest, most wonderful, beautiful thing you'll ever do, Micah! I can't wait to follow your pregnancy journey and meet your little one in March (that's a fabulous time to have a baby.)

Hugs to you guys!!
