Coming May 2008

I am pregnant! Casey and I couldn't be more thrilled to be welcoming a new little member to our family around May 25, 2008. We found out this news in September and we've been spreading it around...now it's finally making its way to the blog.

Everyone always asks me how I told Casey, but I didn't have to tell him. He's the one that made me take the test and he was staring at me while I did it, so we found out at the same time. Our families are really excited. This will be the 4th grandchild for Casey's parents and the first for mine. We told them by having onesies printed up with, "I love grandma and grandpa" and "I love nana and papaw." My parents will have to come up with what they would like to be called - Casey's parents are already "labeled."


The peanut at 6 weeks - that's why it looks like a blurry blob:

I am so excited for you. What a cute way to let the grandparents know. I went and bought a recording device from "build a bear" and had the doctor record the babies heart beat on it and then built a bear for Bob's and my parents for christmas. They already knew, but it was a cute christmas present. Now they play it for Robert and say, "see this was you when you were in mommy's tummy."

Congratulations, Rachel! That is just wonderful - I'm really happy for you and Casey. We'll have a new generation of little study-abroaders yet.

The onesies idea is so great! I wish I would've thought about that, so creative! Hope you're catching your zzzz's because I'm already feeling sleep deprived! Hahaha - can't wait for your little one to be here soon - it will FLY by!
