We will not bore you with all the details of peeing on a stick, morning sickness, and an ever growing belly, but here are some fun pictures! This first one is when Brittney first started noticing a difference, but no one else could....
Christmas in Colorado Springs, a little tiny itty bitty belly with the Lemons family. We announced to the Rigdon side over Thanksgiving, and to the Lemons side about the same time, but this is the first time we saw the Lemons' since being "with child".
Someone told us once (actually, everyone says it..) it was good to go swimming whilst pregnant. It's good for the baby, they say. Well, we walk into the indoor pool at CSU and the 18 year old lifeguard approaches Britt and asks her to put on a "real bathing suit". After explaining that this WAS a real bathing suit and going back and forth with her for a few minutes Britt gets frustrated and says, "Look, I'm pregnant and my boobs are too big so I have to wear a sports bra underneath it!" Lifeguard girl gets VERY uncomfortable and excuses us.
The Man behind all the mischief
Andrew is pretty excited. He sends text messages with potential names every day. All the boy names that he likes, I like for girls. All the girl names I like, he likes for boys. Slight dilemma. Now the next question many might be pondering is, "well goodness, if you are 23 weeks along, AND you've had the 20 week ultrasound, what IS it? A boy or a girl." We are not finding out. No, not because we love a good surprise! But, for those of you who are familiar with Father Lemons, Vince, you know he is a betting man. A Gamblin' Man. He has a new hobby of offering mothers to be and their baby daddy a significant sum of dollars to NOT find out the gender. Not a soul has taken him up on this generous offer. And we are quite sure he expected us to follow suit. He forgot in the moment that he made the offer, however, that we have enough school debt and are poor enough that it doesn't take a whole lot of money to convince us. So not only is our little family growing, but we are making a few bucks off of it!
So there you have it. Some of you may be thinking that the two of us will make scary parents, and you are correct. There isn't much we can do about that now, and all of you "forever held your peace" when we got married!
