So I took a little break from blogging because ….we found out we are expecting a baby in October! Even though our baby is almost here, I still would like to share our story and photos so I can look back and remember. We are so excited about this new season of life together!
I found out I was pregnant two days before Valentine’s Day. I knew I had two wait to tell Nathan because Valentine’s Day is a special day for us – it is also the day he proposed to me. It was so hard keeping it a secret for so long. I went out the next day and bought a onesie and a countdown sign for him to open as his gift. Here we are after he opened it, ready to go on our date! He was shocked and surprised.
We kept it a secret another week before telling my parents. We brought over a gift for them and inside was a little box of baby booties and another onesie. They screamed and love it.
After that we all went to tell my sister Lori at her apartment. She opened a pair of baby slippers and a cute animal bib.
Then, the next weekend we traveled to Minnesota where we hung out with Nathan’s family. We had them all open gifts at the same time. Joel received a mug that had the world on it that said “world’s best uncle”. Rachel received booties. And Nathan’s mom and dad opened booties and a onesie. So much happiness.
We waited until Katie came home from college for a weekend because we wanted to see her reaction in person. She was so excited!
Here are a few photos we took for our pregnancy announcement.
Next up…photos from our gender reveal!
