Telling Our Family We're Pregnant

The first people other than us and Kaitlin to find out we were pregnant were Michael's parents. We got them in the same room as us, closed the door, and said we have something to tell them. Right away, Michael's dad said, "You're pregnant!"

I just told him yep, we are! They were really happy and excited for us. I think it was the next day that we had Michael's parents and my parents over after church. They had come out to go to church with us because Michael and I both were giving talks and they were there to support us. If I had thought ahead about this scenario, I probably would have waited to tell Michael's parents at the same time so they all found out together, but oh well!

I said, "We just wanted to tell you that...we're having a baby!" My mom was like, "REALLY?!" and jumped up and gave us hugs. My dad gave us hugs and was quiet but happy :-). Oh, men. Haha, love you dad. My parents were both super excited. This is their first grandbaby!

We waited until our 8 week ultrasound to tell our siblings. We called them and told them all the same day. It was so much fun to hear all their reactions. It made it seem more real to tell them and hear their excitement for becoming aunts and uncles.

If I haven't told you already, CONGRATS! I'm a total slacker with commenting lately. You are right on track with my best friend and I. We both bought our first homes in 2004, and we pregnant within months of purchasing them. We have a little phrase, "buy a house, and baby will come".

Enjoy your pregnany, and be sure to take lots of pictures during this time. You will regret it later if you don't have those pictures.

and enjoy life!

Your dad was probably quiet because he realized his daughter is having sex. :) HA!

Aw what fun!! :) I love hearing your stories of how everything has gone. I would LOVE even more to see a belly picture (okay okay.. I know you're probably thin as a board... but a 'starting out' one? :) )
