The Best April Fool's Day Ever!

No foolin'!! Five years ago today I found out that I was expecting our little Ellie! I was working at St. Mark's and ran upstairs for a quick blood test because something just felt different. Dr. Neilson called me shortly there after and said, "Not only are you pregnant but you are really pregnant!" I was so excited!

Dayton was exactly 9 months old that day. We quickly found out that I was 3 1/2 months along and of course nobody wanted to believe it because it was April Fool's Day! My only hope was that Dayton would be walking by the time our next little surprise arrived!

We didn't find out the gender for Dayton and also waited to find out with Beans. They ended up 14 1/2 months a part and our little D Man was walking just in time and also transitioned into a twin bed at that time as well. I was ecstatic and surprised to have a little girl!

Here she is with her first pig tail ever thanks to Shell Bell! She was almost 15 months old and cute as a little bald button!

On the B Side: While she was not planned or ever expected I am so grateful for the wonderful surprise and blessing she was and is in our lives! She was the perfect compliment to our little Dayton and I wouldn't have it any other way! Thank heavens for little girls and most especially our little Beans!
