We were actually at SONSHINE when we found out on Saturday morning, so we were already with my parents and sister + brother-in-law! I wanted to scream but had to think of a way to get them "away" from everyone else (as we are with a big group when we go camping...)
SO, we creatively said... let's take a walk down to the beach... and I wrote this in the sand:
My sister was the first one to see it and screamed pretty loud.... ha! My mom started crying...
These were the AFTER faces! :) Ha, they were so funny cuz they all had JUST woken up...
:) SO HAPPY!
Later that night we were attending a family wedding with Josh's parents and sister Laura. I wanted to tell them the minute we saw them, but I left it in Josh's court... :) After all it is his family.
We took a walk with them at this gorgeous park where the wedding was being held and as we were walking Josh hinted at a baby... and they guessed it right away! It was so funny and wonderful! Here is the photo AFTER we told them...
Such fun moments! After that we told Josh's older sister and brother-in-law by playing 20 questions... and we told our grandparents when we saw them/called them. SO MUCH FUN! I of course told my close friends when I could/called them after the family all knew.
We had our first ultrasound on August 4th, which was a miracle! Such a relief to know their was life inside of me and I wasn't just making it up :) Of course the slight nausea wasn't just a subconscious effect.
Baby squiggle is the nickname right now, because that's the size! :) So sweet!
Thanks again for all your congrats - God is good and I am going to do a post on his faithfulness to us during all of this. I have seen his handiwork so clearly these last few months and I HAVE to share it with you all! BLESS YOU!
