SURPRISED

Big news! There is one small thing I did not mention about my birthday trip home. In addition to my grill pan, I also got another gift from Jennie and Jamie. I was so confused. There was a purple envelope taped to the back of the grill pan, but I'd already opened a birthday card from them...

Okay. I promise I'm not stupid. Every time I've seen them (or talked to them) for the past few months, I've been hoping for baby news (or, as I said in the video "I've been hoping you would tell me!"). You have no idea how much I want a niece or nephew. They just knew the way to take my mind of babies for five minutes was to distract me with something shiny and new, I suppose. And it worked. I think the fact that I was so caught off guard and surprised makes it ten times better. Having just visited with my aunt and uncle that day, I thought the card (which had a cute little poem with the word Aunt in it about 20 times) was from them. You can even hear me say "Aww, it's from Eddie and Debbie" in the video. For 27 years, Aunt = Debbie. But now, Aunt = ME!! And And even more, guess who's gonna be a GRANDMA? Lord help us all. Did you hear all that screaming in that video? The kid's not even here yet and I'm already going deaf.

The funny part is that the day they ended up taking the at-home test had actually been circled on my calendar for months. June 8 was a very crazy day at work that I had been anxious about since March. Who would have thought that my nutty day was the same day they would find out they were going to be parents?

Yaaaaaay for our baby! I already love my niece or nephew so much! Is it February yet?

  7. Yep I'm sitting here crying in my keyboard--not over the baby, but over how BAD I look in that video in pajamas at midnight with no contacts or makeup!! Next time yall give me big news and video it and post it to the world, give me a warning! Have you noticed how I keep staring at my picture of the dipstick like it is going to fade out of view, and a "just kidding" pop up?? Ha! This grandma-to-be is just giddy!
