We told Mamaw & Papaw Tonight!

So we informed my parents tonight that they will having 2 grandchildren  enter the world this year (my sister is due in April). I was a little sad that we were unable to tell them in person. But when you live 12 hours apart that's kind of hard to do. I told my sister that we were expecting this weekend, so her & her hubby were already aware. They (sis & hubby) went over to our parents house this evening and DH & I called and insisted that we needed to be put on speaker phone because Frank (our dog) had some important news. My mom knew what was up right away and said "this isn't really about Frank, is it?" But we insisted until we were on speaker phone and then told them that Frank was going to be a big brother. They were definitely excited and since my sis & I had it planned out, they were there to take pictures of my mom & dad's reaction. By the way, my mom DESPISES the pet names Mamaw & Papaw...but I love them!

It still doesn't feel real, probably because I haven't had any morning sickness (knock on wood) and I'm certainly not showing yet. There's so much information to learn about! I don't know if I'm getting emotional because of pregnancy hormones or what, but DH bought me the Charlotte's Web DVD (the new one with Dakota Fanning) for V-day and cried all throughout watching it last night. I absolutely love that story. It was my favorite book as a kid and now I can't wait to share it with our child!

Hello there! I found your blog through my Google Analytics, since you have me linked. Thank you!

Also, congrats on the bun in the oven. We call my Grandparents "Memaw and Pepaw" and it's nice to see someone else with a kooky nickname!
