Pregnancy Files: {Telling Drew he was going to be a Dad}

One of my absolute favorite days so far this year was Valentine's Day. I already love the extra excuse to celebrate love, but it is also the day I told Drew he was going to be a Dad. I had taken a positive pregnancy test 2 days earlier and decided to wait to share with him until Valentine's day since we already had a romantic evening planned. We went to dinner and I was so anxious to get home and give him his "Valentine present." You can read about the rest of our evening (minus the pregnancy reveal here)
Earlier that month a local scrapbook store was going out of business so my friend Alison and I spent an afternoon scrapbooking and that's where I created Drew's gift, which I turned into the pregnancy reveal. I decided to make an Adventure book like in the Pixar movie UP that included pictures from all our adventures together. I started with a picture from our wedding day, then our honeymoon and pictures of places we have traveled together and then I ended with a picture of the positive pregnancy test...our next big adventure! He was (and is) so excited to be a Dad!
Then we had to take the typical "yay we're pregnant, here's the stick she peed on to prove it" pictures.

It was a very memorable Valentine's day. One that will change our lives forever. XOXO
