Make Room, Daddy!

When Mark got ready for work in the morning, he found one of his dresser drawers rearranged:

In place of clothes was a stack of diapers, 
topped with a positive pregnancy test, and a note reading, 
"Make room, Daddy, I'm moving in!"

That afternoon I went to get the blood test.  The nurse tied off my upper arm, then looked at me and said, "You don't need to pout yet - I haven't done anything to you!"  She worried about how I might handle similar procedures over the next several months if this one came back confirming pregnancy.  I told her it won't be easy, but it'll be worth it, and I'll get over it.

A few hours later, I got the phone call that confirmed the blood test as positive.  I called Mark at work, and we began discussing how and when to share our wonderful news with family and friends.

After work, Mark went shopping and found a necklace for me.  It has a silver pendant with two tiny footprints and the inscription "Our family just grew by two feet."  A photo can go on the back when we have an appropriate one.
