First Reactions

Thanksgiving was so much fun! We were so excited and ready to tell our families that we are expecting again! My friend made us these cute felt numbers (1,2 and 3). The Genius wore the 1, the Hippie wore the 2 and I wore the 3. We came out to the living room where everyone was sitting. Someone (maybe my mom?) said, "oh look, they are wearing numbers." People kept talking and the Genius said, "Yeah, I have the one, she has the 2 and Mommy has the 3." Someone said, "Why are you wearing a 3?" The Genius said " 'cause there are 3 of us." At that point I think it hit my mom. She half stood and started screaming and crying and hugging. Everyone else figured it out from there! We had a mini celebration! Then I realized the poor girls had no idea what we were talking about! See, we had not told them either because they would NOT have kept it a secret. Someone told them and the Genius said, "Wow! Now I will have two people to take care of!" The Hippie said, "I hope it's a girl because boys are a little too wild for me." It has been so fun watching people react since then! We are very excited! I go in next week for my second ultrasound which will confirm the due date. The due date is July 3rd (on our predictions) but the doctor said June 26th. Either way I think the baby will be here in June. Now we have the wait until we learn the gender! As fun as the first reactions were, I am SO glad we waited and told our family in person and in that way!

I can't wait to hear how your youngest goes from being a little sister to being a big sister too! Congratulations, I'm so excited for you! I think it was a really cute way to tell everyone too.

I LOVE the way you shared. I told my mom about it. Shouldn't have...if I ever have a 3rd I'll have to come up w/a different way.

Congrats again!
