Baby Hunt

From Baby:
Mommy and Daddy waited for so long to hear that I was finally coming.  It had been months and months and mommy was getting worried that I would never come.  Mom was dying to take a pregnancy test but dad didn't want her to because he was afraid that it would be a negative again and he didn't want to see her like that.  But mom just couldn't wait any longer, she just had to know!  Mom and Dad were in Inkom at grandma and grandpas Hunt's house when mom snuck downstairs and took the test.  Mom tried to distract herself while she waited, the longest two minutes of her life! This test would change their life forever, so much pressure.  It was time to look at the results but now mommy couldn't look at it, she was to scared, but that didn't last long.  Was that really a second line?  Or was mom imagining that it was there because she wanted it so bad?  Mom started to cry instantly, she texted dad to come downstairs but he didn't answer.  Mom tried to pull herself together so it wasn't so obvious she had just been crying.  Lucky for her dad came down to see what she was doing.  His hands were covered in silicone from working upstairs so he came to see if mom could get it off his hands, little did he know what he was walking into.  Mom started to look at his funny and he didn't get it.  She handed him the test and asked if he could also see the 2 lines.  He was in shock and mom just balled again, once it sunk in more dad cried some too.  After being gone for quite some time they were nervous everyone would start to catch on so once again they pulled themselves together  and went upstairs.  No one had a clue, success! Later that day they headed down to Utah to celebrate May birthdays with the Cravens.  They could only keep it a secret for 1 day until Grandma Craven started to catch on, she's a genius. Grandpa came home and they told him as well, once again mom found herself crying.  Mom says she can cry without being judged now because of something called hormons, thank goodness!  Mom and dad waited another week to tell Grandma and Grandpa Hunt, this way they could do it in a fun way. Mom and dad went shopping for the perfect "grandma" gift.  Mom found a baby poem and dad got a big goodie jar filled with candies.  Grandma knew right away what we were telling them grandpa caught on soon after.  Now my sneaky parents had to keep it a secret from everyone else, not an easy task.
To baby:
We are so blessed and can't wait to meet you.  Mommy still can't believe that you are really coming some nights she can't sleep just thinking about you.  We promise we will love and take care of you always.  We don't want to brag but you have some pretty awesome parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, and some really fun cousins!  We love you so much already and know that our love will only grow stronger each day!

The doctor says I have a good heart beat, nice and fast! He told Mom and Dad that they used to say a fast heart beat means I am a girl... I guess we will have to wait and see! 
They say I am about the size of a Lima Bean, I am even shaped like one don't you think?

The doctor also said this thing was important... Mom doesn't really remember what it was called but its there and I am healthy! Yay!!

Here is how my family found out about me:

Or if you prefer the shortened version with just reactions (and a few words from our friends!):

How everyone else found out:



  1. Yay I love this! What a fun blog post! I'm so jealous you have video of everyone's reaction! What a fun memory!

  2. So exciting. It is SO hard to play the waiting game...we have definitely been there too! That little thing is called the yolk sac - it takes care of the baby for now :) and don't be too decieved, Cole's heartrate was in the 170s for the first few months (until he got bigger, than it went down to the 160s). Can't wait to follow your journey! Pregnancy is awesome and amazing!
