how we told

Robert and I went back and forth on when/how to tell the kids and our family/friends.  I kinda wanted to wait a while longer after my 11 week appointment, but Robert was ready to get it out.  I just know that once you tell kids that are our kids ages, they will tell everyone they know! ;)

So we were celebrating Robert's birthday on a Sunday night, I was 12 weeks.  We were at my parents house and decided to go for a quick walk on the golf course before dinner.  As we were leaving, a "mysterious present" appeared on the doorstep with this note attached!

In the package were 6 cards - numbered with a name on it.  They were passed out and read one at a time.

Dad read the first.

Mom read the second one...

The third one isn't pictured, but it read "will get" and Mac read it.

Lacey read the 4th one...

And Robert stalled...then read the 5th one. 

If I recall correctly, my mom squealed.  My dad said, "are you serious?" :) and the kids were maybe slightly confused.  :)  But they quickly caught on. 

Appointment update!!  Went to the doc today (8/7/12) and everything was perfect!  Heartbeat in the 160s! 15 weeks 2 days AND 4 weeks from today we FIND OUT!!  I haven't been so excited about something in so long!  These next 4 weeks will crawl by I'm sure!   I'm also looking forward to feeling the baby move.  I felt Landon around 15+ weeks and Rhodes around 16+ weeks, so I feel like it should be any day now.  Baby kicks are by far my most favorite (and probably only) part or pregnancy I truly enjoy.  I've also had a few bouts of heartburn - never had it SO early!  Not fun....but all well worth it!!


  1. Yay! Glad you had a good appt! Such a cute way to tell. You'll have to help me with my next one as I'm not that creative :)

  2. Such a cute way to share!! :-) Glad everything is going well!

  3. I am loving your diaries! So special and the last picture is GREAT! You have such a beautiful family--one blessed Momma!!

  4. Oh my goodness girl! Goosebumps! I hate hate hate when people say "I had a feeling," but there was just a sense in your beach photos that I had an inkling [I'm even annoyed with myself for saying that lol]. CONGRATS!


If you don't have anything nice to say, then, please don't say anything at all! THANKS!
