Part One: Getting the Word Out!!

Well, David and I officially had the biggest secret of our lives growing in my belly. We wanted to SHOUT it from the rooftops, and the next week and a half was the hardest!

We spent a lot of time laughing and planning and crying together. We couldn't believe the miracle God has given us, and felt so blessed to be wearing the shoes he had provided us. A family of 3!!!! {or a least we think just one baby is growing} One minute we were overjoyed with excitement and the next minute going through the laundry list of things we needed to accomplish in the next 8 months.

The first big step was deciding on how to tell our parents. Both sets are so wonderfully helpful to us, and we couldn't wait to share the new with them. Since Christmas was fast approaching (a week and a half away) we decided to share the new with them then. What a fun gift to open!!!!

We told David's parents first. We wrapped a cute little onesie for Grandma Penny, a Grandpa bib for Dave, and an I love my uncle picture frame for Michael!!!! David handed them the bags, and I got my camera ready!!!! :)

Before they opened them ...

Grandpa Dave is very confused ...
Grandma Penny needs to turn hers around ...
Michael gets it!!!

Still trying the understand ...

They thought we had bought them something for our dog Harley. hehe. But it didn't take too long before Grandpa Dave asked "Are you with child??" David and I couldn't stop our big huge massive grins from crossing our faces!!!

We shook our heads YES, and there was an immediate outpouring of love with shrills and jumps. Everyone came hugging us, and we were so overjoyed with excitement and love words cannot express it.

THEN, David & I literally threatened them with their lives if they spoke a word about this to anyone until we let my parents & sister in on the surprise. :)
