I've had a secret.
For a long time.
I kept my secret.
My secret kept getting bigger and bigger.
It got harder and harder to keep.
Eventually there was no hiding my secret.
It was pretty obvious.
But I still kept it.
A few weeks ago I stopped trying to keep my secret.
I admitted it proudly to all who inquired.
What a cherished relief!
"No, I'm not fat, I'm just pregnant!"
But still, I never spoke of it on Facebook.
Or on the phone.
Or on my blog.
Why wait so long you ask?
Because we had two big surprises to deliver first.
First to my dad and his lovely wife Terrisa last week in Idaho.
Then to Stevens parents who are visiting from Florida this week.
They had no idea.
We finally got to show off our baby Bun in person!
It was fun. :)
It was a secret worth keeping.
But now its time to share.
Time to share the news with everyone.
Let everyone know that I am officially 19 weeks along! Due November 27.
Let everyone know that I will now be updating my Facebook status with pregnancy related info.
Let everyone know that on Tuesday we will find out the sex of our baby Bun.
I can hardly wait!
Let everyone know that we are thrilled
to be adding to our family.
I am delighted to feel my precious Bun kicking around inside me.
Oh how I have longed for those feelings of life growing within.
It is such a pleasure knowing that I am participating in the most feminine act possible.
Creation. Growing a child.
It's crazy to think that I will be changing diapers again in 5 short months.
Oh help me!
We are ecstatic!
