Finding Out About You

For some reason the lyrics to that song, "I remember finding out about you..." kept running through my head as we told multiple family members our big news. For Grandma Nancy, the night we arrived at her house in Ripley, OK we gave her a "belated Mother's Day gift" that confused her at first. She opened it to discover a pair of tiny baby booties in it. You can see the look she gave us in this photo. She said, "Does this mean what I think it means?" Then she jumped up and hugged Daniel while we all grinned and assured her that she was correct. She'll have 13 grandkids by next Spring.

With Daniel's sister, Robin, we told her at the Cushing water park. We used the same odd statement that we came up with to tell our friends here in Colorado. I said, "Did you hear we're getting another kid? The only downside is that we'll have to wait nine months for it to get here." For Daniel's other sister, Jennie, I really botched it. I thought she'd already heard me tell our friend Claire, so I just casually mentioned it to Jennie and didn't get a photo of her reaction. For those curious, I'm due February 11th and this was an unexpected surprise.
