I've Been Keeping Secret...
Our son Jaysn and our Rachel are starting a brand new chapter in their lives...they are going to be parents! Yesterday they hit the magic 12 week mark that they were waiting for before they wanted to share the news with the world. Do you have any idea of how hard this has been for me NOT to share this news here on my blog??? I mean, I've know for 1 1/2 months now and have had to keep this wonderful, amazing, and very happy news from all of you. So I can finally shout it out "I'M GOING TO BE A GRAMMIE AGAIN!" :)
They told us the day we arrived at my parent's home for our short but sweet vacation. Josh, my parents, Jeff and I were all in the car on our way to dinner when we returned their call after seeing they left a message for us while we were at a concert. I'm so glad that Josh was there with us to share in the celebration of the wonderful news! The timing was perfect!
This new little one is due in mid May. My father is pulling for the 16th, which is his birthday and my cousin Jeremy is pulling for the 13th, which is Jeremy's birthday. :) I told them both this baby will come when it is ready but maybe it will be born at midnight between the 14th and 15th so it could be right between their birthdays. LOL!
I have a picture of the ultrasound of "Jazz" (nicknamed because baby was making Jazz hands during the ultrasound) at 8 weeks 5 days on my refrigerator, just like I did of Bradley and Isaiah. Every day I look at that precious little one knowing that he/she is growing bigger and stronger every day safely in our Rachel. I've been shopping buying neutral colored baby clothing for Jazz and some maternity pants for Rachel. I already bought and gave her 2 books on how baby is developing within her so she can track all the milestones and understand what is happening to her body also. ;) Bradley and Isaiah are split right down the middle on if they want a boy cousin or a girl cousin. Grammie just wants a healthy baby!
So please forgive me for holding out on you all. I made a promise to my kids that I would not share their news on social media until the 12 week mark and until they shared it themselves. We could not be happier for them and we know they are going to be wonderful parents!
