We found out at the end of June that we would be welcoming a new addition into our family. We didn’t tell our parents immediately for two reasons:
#1 – My sister was getting married and I wanted her special day to be about her, not me.
#2 – I always like to wait a couple of weeks before we tell our immediate family in case something goes wrong with the pregnancy.
So, we decided July 4th would be the BIG DAY!!!
We went to The Dollar Tree and purchased these lovely pink and blue baby decorations…
Hung them in the playroom closet, which is now in the process of being converted into the baby’s room, and waited until the big day.
We decided to cook supper for our parents that evening. After supper, I told them that I wanted to show them how I had reorganized the playroom closet. I am not sure if y’all remember, but the closet originally looked like this…
Let me just say that we didn’t get the reaction we were looking for at first. All three of our parents stood there with a very confused look on their face. It was actually a little comical. So, we had to explain to them what the streamers said… It’s a Baby!!! Then, after a few seconds, the cheers, gasps, and congratulations followed.
I think we really caught them off-guard. They knew we wanted to have another baby, but we didn’t tell anyone when we wanted to have this bundle of joy.
And, we had to get one final picture of the proud future big sister…
So, will Kate have a baby brother or sister?!?! Check out one of next week’s posts when I reveal the gender and baby’s name.
Have a wonderful weekend!
