Part Two: Getting the Word Out!

We had told the Watson's on Thursday, and they had a very tough job not being able to tell anyone for two whole days. David and I were very very thankful for their closed lips!!!!


So, Christmas morning was when we decided to tell my family. It was the hardest thing keeping it a secret Christmas Eve when we met up with my whole extended family. David and I both wanted to shout it, but figured my parents would appreciate a private moment.

We went over to my parents house early Christmas morning. Our plan was to leave the packages in the car, and after all the other gifts were opened I would ask David "Did we forget the other present at home?' and he would say, "Gosh, I hope not, let me check the car." LOL

David went to get the packages and we passed them out ...

Mom, Dad, and Jess opened at the same time, and immediately screaming commenced and "NO WAY, NO WAY" Dad started crying, Mom was crying, I was crying. It was a very very very special moment.

THEN, Mom started screaming "I GOTTA CALL SOMEONE, CAN I CALL SOMEONE???" David and I laughed and told her yes, she ran to the phone to call her best friend. It was a priceless family moment I will never forget. :)

It was really exciting we got to tell Jessica in person!

Grandpa's Napping Buddy :)

My Mom was sooooooo adorably excited!

Next was writing it on facebook. Who would of thought telling the world would consist of writing on a wall, but it was the most fun!!!

David wrote: "wishes everyone a VERY Merry Christmas! I'm also proud to announce that my wife and I are expecting our FIRST child!! :-)"

I wrote: "David & I are so excited to announce WE ARE PREGNANT!!!!!!!!! We are about 6 weeks and very very excited!!!!!!!!!!"

Grandma Zonetta wrote: "I AM GOING TO BE A GRANDMA!!!!!!!!"

Grandma Zonetta wrote later in the day: "Just in case anyone didnt see my post from earlier......I AM GOING TO BE A GRANDMA!!!!!"

Grandma Jim wrote: "I'm going to be a grandpa. Woo-hoo. The greatest gift was born over 2000 years ago. Now I am going to receive the second greatest gift possible. I am so blessed. Im happy, joyful, excited. Great anticapation.Wow just like back then when they were waiting for the Messiah."

Aunt Jessica wrote: "Greatest christmas ever! My sister.and brother are expecting! CONGRATS CHRISSY AND DAVID WATSON!"

Uncle Michael Wrote: "found out the other day that.... I'M GOING TO BE AN UNCLE!!!!!! :D :D"

I think it is safe to say Growing Baby Watson is already VERY VERY loved!!!!!
