Can you see it in our eyes?

When I went browsing through my 2010 photo album on facebook looking for our Christmas pic from last year most of my memories related to where we were in our baby making journey.

Some of you know that Hubs and I dated for 6 years before he proposed. The funny thing was he was ready for kids before he was ready to get married. I didn't want my father to shoot him so we compromised by saying we would not wait too long after we got married to start trying to have a baby. We got married October 2009 and on our honeymoon discussed when we would start trying. I had just been hired by Hubby's company at the end of August 2009 so we wanted to wait a little while.

I am trying to remember now why my friend T and I were emailing about when we would start trying, but I can't. She was getting married the summer of 2010 and we were also emailing about dresses. I forwarded an email to my mom so she could see the pictures of the dress. Well sneaky mom read the whole email history and found out Curtis and I were talking about trying.

This is a picture from her visit to San Diego in February 2010. She told me on this trip that she had read those emails and I think she was going to tell us to wait awhile but I told her I had already stopped taking birth control.

Hubs and I had planned not to tell anyone that we were trying. I didn't want people calling every month to find out if we were pregnant or not. Even though my mom was sneaky I am so glad she knew we were trying. She helped me out a lot through the next few months.

This is a picture from a trip we made to LA in April. I didn't drink on this trip because I thought I might be pregnant. I wasn't.

This picture is from my brother-in-law's graduation from SF state. Again I didn't drink on this trip because I thought I might be pregnant. My mother-in-law made some comments about us making a grandchild for her but she was telling people I was due in June before we got married. She did the math if we got pregnant on our honeymoon. I wasn't due in June and I wasn't pregnant on this trip.

This picture is from this little guy's birthday in July. I will never forget the conversation I had with a friend at this party. No one knew we were trying but it came up that it had taken my friend 6 months to get pregnant. Since we were going on 5 or 6 months at this point I just remember thinking maybe there wasn't something wrong with me.

This is a picture from our anniversary trip in October. I didn't drink this trip because I was PREGNANT! Do we look different? I think I tried to hide my tiny bump under the table but I can't remember. When I look at this picture I feel like we have this amazing and wonderful secret!

Another picture from our anniversary trip. Am I glowing? Do my boobs look bigger? This night when we went back to our hotel after going to the melting pot the elevator lady said something about me being pregnant. She was the first person to comment on my bump. I think it was a food bump from the melting pot, but still.

This post was fun! I love looking back on 2010 and I'm sure I'll always look back on 2011 very fondly since it is the year my baby arrived!
