May 17, 2008.
We had our first baby shower today at Janet Outlaw's home. It was a fabulous shower! Lots of friends and family came. Baby Girl Jones got lots of things from clothes, to diapers and bottles, to a rocking pink poodle. Thank you to all who came and gave! It was such a special day - a time we will always remember.

This was not me taking the picture of Dustin playing golf. I was busy enjoying my first Mother's Day present in the spa at Doral. The Mother's Massage and a facial were enough to keep me occupied while he enjoyed his day of golf.
We went to Dallas this past weekend to stay with Sydney and find some furniture for the nursery. Dustin had done his research the week before and looked up every kind of baby furniture there was to sale out there. He had his list of stores we needed to go to and knew just the questions to ask. This was his deal and I was glad to let him take on the responsibility. Needless to say, we didn't find our furniture in Dallas. We drove all that way just to find it in a little children's store in Odessa. We found a convertible 3-in-1 crib with a dresser and chest-of-drawers to match. Dustin is very pleased and therefore I am too. You can tell he is a proud father already - the crib was put together the night we brought it home.
Christmas morning 1:00am - We found out we are going to parents. Wow! It all started when I was talking with my cousin, Amanda, about her pregnancy. She was describing her pregnancy symptoms and for some odd reason I was not doubting that I was NOT pregnant. I decided to talk to Dustin about this and tell him that I had been experiencing some of the same symptoms as Amanda. We really didn't know what to think at this point so we decided that we might ought to get a pregnancy test. After the Jones Christmas on Christmas Eve, we decided to stop by Walgreens on our way home. I made Dustin go in and get the test since I was not going to be seen on that aisle. Of course he came back with the most expensive digital pregnancy test you could buy. He said he wanted to buy the best to make sure it was going to be accurate. We went home and stared at the test for a while and I finally decided to break open the box. Sure enough that thing blinked "PREGNANT" in less than 30 seconds. As crazy as that early morning was, we agreed that we could not have asked for a better Christmas present. The only problem was that we had agreed to keep our news a secret until we could tell our parents at the same time. I was leaving for Dallas the next day with Mom and Didi. It sure was a LONG four days...
We finally told our family on New Year's Day letting them know that our New Year's resolution was to be good parents in this coming year. We finally got to share the excitement!
