We’ve got BIG NEWS! Eric and I are thrilled to share that we are expecting our third baby in May! We’ve got tons of excitement and some stories to share.
We have two wonderful little boys and I was sure we were going to have a third boy right from the beginning. In the fall, we had done a genetic blood test and were awaiting the results. Eric and I photographed a wedding in Georgia in November and were in the airport security line on our way home to Denver, when I received a text message, “Your results are now available.” We decided to get through the line and go sit down. The first message told us the wonderful news that our baby was healthy and low risk for any genetic concerns. The second message told us we were having a GIRL!
Sitting in the crowded waiting area of the terminal, I smacked Eric’s arm. Total disbelief. Tears. Hugs. I will never forget it! I immediately asked him to check that my name was correct on the results, so sure they had sent me the wrong information. Then I asked him to check the accuracy. Everything was correct and almost 100% accurate. WHAT??!!
I still don’t believe it! Although that hasn’t kept me from buying little bows and dresses and a whole lot of PINK..!
The next step was telling Ollie and Augie (5 and 2 at the time), who didn’t know a baby was on the way yet. We did some research and found a great way to tell them — have a party! We bought pink balloons, pink flowers and pink cupcakes! When the kids got home from school we told them we had a surprise. I think Ollie thought the cupcakes were the surprise! But then we asked him why he thought there was so much PINK!? As soon as we told him he said, “WOW!” Augie was a little too young to understand what was going on, but was also very excited for cupcakes.
Since then, Ollie has recommended some really great baby names including, “Nacho Cheese, Tuna, and Batman.”
Sharing this news with our family and friends has been wonderful! Thank you for all the sweet messages, comments and likes we’ve been getting from everyone.
Our house is about to get a lot LOUDER! and we can’t wait!
