Telling Josh's Parents

We told Josh's Parents that we are expecting! We had planned on waiting until around the same time we told my parents, but after a day at the Summerford pool with everyone enjoying summer beverages and me sticking with the more "baby-friendly" water, we thought they might figure it out. We decided to beat them to the punch and break the news. As Joe and Lisa were preparing to grill burgers we were all gathered in the kitchen. Josh told Joe that "he might want to throw another burger on, because Christie is eating for two". Their reactions were priceless. Joe whipped his head around and said "do what!" Lisa squealed and covered her face. Neither one could quit smiling and Lisa was very little help with dinner for the rest of the night forgetting what she was trying to do multiple times. Amanda had a more subdued reaction, she was really shocked, but didn't know what to do. She eventually came around and helped pick out baby names. The rest of the night was spent looking at Josh's baby pictures and going through names on the internet. Overall, it was a very exciting night!

We're pregnant!

We're pregnant!!! We found out today that we are 3.5 weeks pregnant. I had an annual check-up with Dr. Birch. When the nurse was asking the usual questions prior to the exam she asked if I was pregnant. I told her that we had started trying earlier that month and she suggested a pregnancy test "just to see" and it was positive!!! I could not believe that it was real! I asked the nurse if I could keep the test to show Josh and as soon as the nurse left the room I called Josh and let him know... WE'RE PREGNANT!!! He was just as shocked! We never thought it would happen so soon, but it did!
