Tuesday Teaser - 100th post addition

dear internet,

I have something really fun to share with you today....

first BFP in 8 months (8.5.08) & 1 is all we need

I'm sorry I didn't tell you sooner - had to tell our families and such first since they read this little ol' blog of mine! We are very very excited and more than a little shocked. [and believe me when I tell you that I have renewed faith in the saying "everything happens for a reason"]

Speaking of telling our parents - we waited until this weekend to tell them & it went really great. My mom & sisters found out on our little trip - they were shocked, excited, nervous - but most of all they didn't all the way believe me. My mom is insisting she is too young to be a grandma and my sisters are already arguing over who will be the better aunt! Mike's parents had no idea we were ever TTC - so they were a little more than shocked. It took them about 5min to process what we told them and as soon as his mom realized we were serious she started jumping up and down saying "we're having a baby!" over and over!! His grandma was also really excited, shocked but excited to be a great-grandma - she said now she can brag to her sisters about it!!

So - it went well, the few friends who know are all really excited for us and that means so much to mike and i.

We are of course nervous [b/c well, who wouldn't be a little bit?] but excitement is overwhelming. Mike is adorable always wanting to make sure I have enough sleep [am exhausted] and enough to eat [am nauseus] -- he is very attentive and into the whole thing!

Enough for one day? Probably! Oh ya... and I have an interview tomorrow!

It's so funny that you really do believe 'everything happens for a reason'- even if it takes forever and that whole journey is nothing but stressful and well, freaking annoying- esp when ttc takes "so long"- in the end, you realize it really wasn't THAT long and i dont know about you, but when I got preg with Brennen it was like it happened at the most perfect time and I was sort of glad it didn't happen sooner...but anyways- thats just me- and I'm soo happy for you guys! Be glad you didn't get preggo in Dec and you'd have to be big and preggo all summer....ugh lol. April is perfect! =)

Wow, talk about timing... you got pregnant pretty much at the EXACT time you were to be prepping for M3 year... you're right, everything DOES happen for a reason. WOW what a lot of changes in your life... and WOW look at you, taking it in stride! Congrats!

I am so lame. It's been a month since this post and I'm just now picking up on the fact that you're pregnant. Has it been that long since I've clicked through? That's what I get for not having your link in my reader. Congratulations to you, even though it's MAJORLY late!
