We told the kids today that we're expecting

Well we told the kids today!

We usually get a cookie cake on their birthday but since our dd's birthday is tomorrow the same day we're having a party I thought about getting a cookie cake today since my aunt & uncle who can't make it tomorrow were coming over. So I called DH and asked what he thought about putting "Mom's Having A Baby" on it to announce it to the kids that way. He said sure!

So we ordered the cake and went to CiCi's to eat since he was working. After we ate dh brought out the cake and the kids of course all gathered around and my aunt was sitting right beside Faith who we had put the cake in front of since it was her "birthay" cake as such - she's not old enough to care or know what was written on it yet LOL!

anyway - when they opened it our oldest read it and the kids all were ecstatic and my aunt squeeled! I think everyone in the restaurant knew I was expecting :lol

It was great!

We will tell the rest of the family tomorrow at dd's party. I made them all handprint things to tell them. I was not going to put Joseph on there but when we were making them I didn't let the kids see the black baby handprint that has "#8 Due 05/13/2007" on it cause they didn't know I was pregnant yet and they all kept asking if it was J's handprint (our baby we lost in early July) so then I thought that I had better add a tiny handprint and so on the tiny handprint it says "In memory of Jl"

We've told the kids not to tell that we'll give everyone their gift tomorrow to announce it! We'll give it to them when we first arrive so the kids don't have to try to keep quiet too long! :lol

Here are a few pics from today!

I understand that - I've either been pregnant or nursing basically for the last 11 years with maybe on occasional break.

Re: We told the kids today that we're expecting

How exciting! My ds was with me when we got the results at the doctor's office. He was with me drawing blood and everything, he knew what we were there for though, so he was excited when the nurse said yes, you are pregnant! From that moment (well, actually before) it's been a 'girl baby' so how cool would that be if he were right!
