A Big Ol' Surprise Announcement

I've been trying to figure out the best way to tell everyone about our big surprise and I decided that the blog is the best way to do it. You see I have a huge family that lives all the over the country. So, I often get stuck playing the "who do I tell first" game. Better known as "Who won't get too ticked if they're the last to find out" game. Add into the mix a group of best friends who think they prioritize right up there with my mom and dad (you know who you are Britt, Lindsey, Shari, & Jess...not to name any names) :).

So here goes...drumroll......


I had to go off the pill for a bit while E transitioned to new job. My doctor wouldn't write me any more prescriptions til I came in for my check up but I didn't want to go in until I was on the new insurance. So, I've been off the "little pink pill" for about 2 months. So, yeah...

E started his job today. He's excited about it for a couple of reasons. First because its a paycheck. (Yay!). Second, we get insurance and that insurance has a maternity policy. I think you get where I'm going with this. So scroll down for a picture of our big surprise!

















April Fool's!!! I am NOT pregnant :)

Shannon and I used to joke with our family and friends about being pregnant ... now we're auditioning for TLC's next family reality show. :)

Ah - that is a good one. But you had me going - I was like this is perfect timing b/c of insurance and after CG a couple of weeks ago I was thinking about how God is so faithful to us!!! Ha, thanks for the "fool."

Erin and Bethany said...

Amber, now I feel like a jerk to my CG friends :)

Trust me though...if I did get preggo, I'd be on cloud nine :)(after slight mini-freak out)

Matt, I can just see it now "Carlisle and counting" :)

Travis, you're just jealous you couldn't pull this one off.

No Bethany, I'm just jealous that you had time to think about something like that. I was up with Zion at 2AM with an ear infection and Norah gasping for air due to Bronchi-itas (as the Dr. says). Good luck with fake parenthood! The real kind rocks!
