Telling Our Families (with video)

Monday, December 30, 2013

We are so beyond excited to be expecting another baby! The night before I got a positive test Jeremy and I actually decided that I should see my OB soon because we weren't sure if we were going to need Clomid to get pregnant again. I'm so thankful we didn't have to go that route this time! We feel blessed beyond measure!!

We knew we wanted to share the good news with our families right away. We needed prayers for a healthy pregnancy/baby and support just in case something went wrong so we figured the sooner we told everyone, the better. It just so happened that my first OB visit was on Christmas Eve so it worked out perfect for us to share with everyone on Christmas. 

I told my mom as soon as I got the positive test. She was coming to stay with us for a week during Christmas so I needed her to know in case I wasn't feeling well during her visit. She was thrilled to hear the good news and even more excited to visit with us! She never takes vacation so it was a special treat for her to fly to Ohio for the week. 

We shared the news with my dad and stepmom on Christmas morning. We always Facetime with them on Christmas morning so we decided to put the I'm going to be a big brother shirt on Joel and see if they noticed while he was on talking to them. They didn't notice right away.. and when my dad finally started to read the shirt out loud and it took him a minute to get it which was hilarious! They are hoping it will be a girl this time. :-) 

We had dinner with Jeremy's [mom's side of the] family on Christmas night and we thought of a fun way to share with them. Watch the video to see their reaction.. it's priceless!

We tried something similar on Christmas Eve with Jeremy's dad and stepmom. Jer forgot to record and took a picture instead though. The only one that got it when he said "Joel's going to be a big brother!" was his stepsister. {Of course I can't find the picture now that I'm looking for it..} 

I can't believe next December we will be a family of FOUR! 

Merry Christmas!
