Let me tell you a story about a "friend"

OK, So, I have a story to tell. Let's say it's about a "friend" of mine.
This friend is married and has 3 beautiful children. She lives in, um, the mid-west. This "friend" of mine thought she might have been pregnant back in December, because she didn't have her "regular" visitor. She had been taking these little pills for last few months. These pills are supposed to keep her from getting pregnant, but they made her gain weight, so she was thinking about quiting. So, when "that" monthly thing didn't happen she thought she might be pregnant.
She went to the doctor for a blood test because the home test were negative. She's never had a negative test. They've only been positive. The blood test said she was not pregnant and the doctor said it was caused by the pills. My friend decided to forget the pills. The problem is she literally forgot the pills. So, after another month rolled around and she still didn't get her "visitor" she thought, "Hmmm, I wonder..........?"
Well, this time the test at home was positive.

Ok, so let's stop pretending. There is no friend. IT'S ME! Did you figure that already????!!!
My readers are so smart.

I had an ultra sound yesterday and was given the due date of Oct. 4th.

Can you believe it?

We waited to tell the kids. I wanted to video them when we told them to see what funny things they would say.

Basically, I showed them the little ultra sound. Now remember, this early ultra sound isn't much more than a picture of a little peanut in a black circle.
When I showed it to the kids and asked what they thought it might be, Gibson said, "Is it an angel?" Haven said, "A Nascar place?" Then Gibson said, "A volcano?"

"No, it's a baby." I said. Gibson said, "Inside a tummy?" I said "yes."
"Inside your tummy." I said yes. So, then he said, "It's Elam." Haven yells, "It's Gibson. It's Haven."

"No, it's a New baby!!"

And they were basically like.... "Oh." and that's it.

Gibson ask, "What's his name?"

"Well, we don't know if it's a boy or girl. What do you want?"

"I want a brother. Then there will be 3 brothers!" Gibson said.

Haven of course wants a sister.

"Gibson, What do you want to name your new baby?" "Tony Stewart!"

"Haven, What do you want to name your new baby?" "Gabriella!"

Here are some short movie clips of me asking each kid "What do you think about mommy having another baby?"

Listen to Haven's funny answer for, "What kind of baby do you want?"

Gibson math is a little off.

Elam's is pretty funny.

Oh my goodness! That is too cute! They are too cute! We are excited about having another niece/nephew! I hope Haven is not too disappointed that she can't get a "brown" baby! Uncle Daniel and Aunt Christy have confused all their nieces and nephews since they do have a "brown" baby!

Honey, I am so thrilled that they are so excited, although at the same time, they remained calm. I guess they're use to it, and they feel like the more the merrier. I trust "Daddy" feels the same way.
I'm excited too! This is a cupcake moment in Opa's and Oma's lives.

Papa Lyndel said...

Woohoo! Grani and Papa did their "we're getting another grandbaby" dance! It's time to move back to Tennessee.

Papa Lyndel said...

Oh, and the "brown baby" comment is the sweetest thing. I told Grani that I am such a sap. I got all teary-eyed.

Emily said...

Congratulations! I've been secretly hoping to see a blog like this for a while now. Yay! Do I get a vote? If so, I want a girl named Hannah Montana.

Mel said...

Holy Cow!! That is so awesome! Phillip and I have mucho catch up to do! We are so excited for you guys! Hope that doesn't mean a trip to Italy is out of the question!

Aunt Di Di said...

Please tell Haven and Gibson and Elam that Bernard is hoping for a GREEN baby!!!!!!!!!!!!

WOW! How exciting! I will have to check your blog more often! Keep updating on how you're doing and how the kids react along the way!

Rachel Wilson said...

I agree with Papa about it being time to move back! LOL! I am so happy for you. Elam, may be on to something with the name NO! It would save a lot of studdering over names. You could just say
NO- No instead of NO - Ka, Wes, Alie, like I do all day long!
