The News


Last Friday we shared some exciting news with the world via social media. This has seriously been one of the hardest secrets I've ever had to keep. The first trimester felt like I was keeping secrets for weeks and weeks. I didn't tell my husband for 10 days because i wanted to tell him on our anniversary. Then we kept the secret from Brooklyn for a few more weeks so we could capture her reaction on camera (seriously, the best decision ever!). 
We told most of our family individually. I thought my mom was going to spill our secret though. I told her at one of Brooklyn's volleyball tournaments when most everyone had left for lunch or headed outside. She screamed. Like 4 times. To say she was excited would be an understatement. Jeremy's mom screamed at a check out counter. His whole family is over the moon too! This will be the first baby for them in a long while. 

Now the big secret is gender! We know! And we have told a few friends and most of our family knows. We just have one family member to tell before we make the news public and I really can't wait. I've had to watch what I pinterest these days so I don't spill the beans!! I'm hoping by next week we get to share the gender. Also, my daughter has insisted that I take weekly "bump" pics so I'm going to do my best to update with those once a week or every other week if the questions get repetitious. 

So any guessing on whether we have blue or pink in our future??
