Exciting times for the Nerdy family! Last week (Feb 13th) we announced to my husband's family that we are expecting our second (and final) child. While his mom doesn't accept that this is the last grandkid from us, they are all very excited to meet him or her in September.
Today (Feb 20th) we will be announcing the baby to my family. Some of you may be wondering, and even mad about, why we held off telling people for so long, I mean, I'm nearly through the first trimester. There's a two part reason: 1) I've been deathly afraid of a miscarriage since day 1 and 2) last week was my father-in-law's birthday, this week was my dad's birthday. What better way to celebreate life than to do it on the anniversary of someone else's birth? Plus, they're getting a grandbaby for their birthday. Yay! (Update from Feb 28th: my family is super stoked as well.)
I would like to give a special shout out to my little sister, who has known about this pregnancy for 1 day less than Hubby and myself. That's right, folks. He and I found out on New Year's Eve, and I spilled the beans to her on New Year's Day. She has held this secret for as long as we have and I know it hasn't been easy for her, but I'm so glad she did! Thank you!!
Now to the fun part. Wanna see how we told our families? Here you go!
