It all started with a little red Skittle one July 31, 2009. Mike and I went to the doctor because a digital test said "pregnant". We were told we would see our baby for the first time at our first appointment. After the doctor searched for a few minutes he found a small circle and showed it to us on the screen. The doctor printed the picture but did not give us a copy (to my despair), he said we would get a copy whenever he saw a heartbeat.
We were relieved to know there really was a baby in there and that in about 7 1/2 months we would be beaming parents. Once we left Michael asked me to text his best friend and inform him we were having a Skittle! Ever since then our future child has been referred to as our little red (why is it red....only Michael knows!) Skittle.
