Yes, It's FINALLY True...


Darren and I FINALLY have an announcement... we're having a baby! We are super excited and have been pinching ourselves. We can't believe it's true. We are due around the middle of March. I am only about 5 weeks along, but already getting some morning sickness. We both can't wait till our little one comes in the spring.


Darren and I tried to think of clever ways of telling our families that I was pregnant. We first told my parents and took them to lunch. It was my mom's birthday the week before and I bought her a little birthday present. I gave her this book she is holding in the picture titled "I knew I loved you before you were born." I thought for sure she would get it, but she responded by saying "I have never read this book before." Luckily, I knew my mom probably would need more probing. So, I wrote in the book the following: "To my mom, my best friend. I hope the new addition is as close to you as I am!" My mom finally got it and was very happy for me. I have never seen my parents both have teary eyes before until then. I love them!


This was the funnest way to tell Darren's family. We were all meeting at a park for a farewell/happy birthday party for Jason (Darren's brother) going to the Air Force and Philip's (Darren's brother-n-law) birthday. We were all sitting down eating our food when Darren announced that he wanted to take a picture of everyone. He said "Ok everyone, on the count of three everyone say: 'Heather's pregnant!'" Needless to say we got the most classic picture that I will always cherish.

I like your baby widget. I'm not going to lie though, it is kinda creepy how it is floating around there.
