We are expecting!

So it has definitely been way too long since I have posted. Since then, Will has turned a month old and has gained 2 whole pounds! He is so precious. I know that everybody who reads this knows my news, but I guess I need to make it blog official and announce that me and Robert are expecting too! I am 13 weeks and 1 day, so I am over the dangerous point. We got to see our little bean at 8 weeks and 2 days. We saw and heard the heartbeat at this appointment. First heartbeat was 189. Seemed a little high, but doctor said it was great. We had our second appointment on my birthday and heard the heartbeat again. This time it was 163. So far so good. Our next appointment is on our anniversary! I keep getting lucky with these dates! My mom is dying to go to an appointment with me, so we are letting her come to this one. I know she is just so excited to spoil another grand baby. I am excited that Will and his new cousin are going to be so close in age! So here's the story of how we found out and how we told everybody.
Martha's baby shower was the day before Father's Day. I was already a week late and since I had to be up early anyway, I decided to take the test before Robert went to work. I don't think he even knew that I was taking it. So I grabbed it and told him to go into the bathroom before he left. He stared at it with this confused look on his face. It was pretty funny. I guess next time I shouldn't surprise him so early on a Saturday morning. So I decided that I didn't want to ruin Martha's shower, so I didn't tell anybody. I sat through that whole shower with my news. It was really hard to do. When the shower was over, I pulled Martha outside and told her before I left. I had to tell somebody! So the next day we went to eat at Costa's BBQ in Trussville for Father's Day. We bought my dad race tickets so Robbie had already bought the card. I decided to get a random Father's Day card and I signed it "Love, Amy, Robert, and Baby (due February 2010). My dad looked at it, then looked at me and said "is this what I think it is?" I said yes but told him to give it to my mom. Of course when my mom read it, she didn't say anything, she just jumped up and screamed. It was pretty exciting to find out on Father's Day weekend, so technically Robert has already had his first Father's Day. We waited until we went to the doctor before we told our friends. We decided to have a few people over and told them then.
We are very excited and cant wait to find out what we are having. We probably wont find out until the beginning of October. We have already looked at some names but can only agree on girl names. The one that we love is Brooklyn Noelle. Another one we are considering is Marlee Noelle. No boy names yet, even though that's what we are hoping for. I will try to update this blog more, since I actually have something to blog about now! Here are a few pictures of our little bean!

Here are the pictures that I took when my parents found out!
