I'm one blessed girl...

When I told my family about our newest addition to our family, they were so excited! It was the greatest feeling to know that they were (and are) truly excited that Eric and I get to experience the miracle of bringing a child into the world! We told our parents on the same night and they were hilarious! We gave them all bags of "souvenirs" from one of our trips, so they thought... in the bags were actually small magnets telling them the good news (my Mama's said, "I'm going to be a Grandma again!"...Eric's mom's said, "I'm going to be a grandma! ...you get the picture! :)! Mrs. Pam kinda figured it out, ripped into her bag (literally), and started jumping up and down! My dad was ticked because he thought she got the prize or something! :) ha They were all so elated... and they immediately got on the phone to share the good news. It is certainly a night we'll never forget!

The next day we went to the lake and told Trae and his family. Here are some pictures we took:

Love this one! :) Nothing like pointing to your belly with your brother! ha :)

Talking with Abbie. She's all dressed up after her birthday party! Don't you love the crown and tutu?! Precious.

Ab is pointing to the baby. :) She said, "I can feel it!" I'm just glad the sweet thing didn't say, "It's squishy!" :) ha

Kisses for the baby! :)

Nonna, Papa, Mommy, and Daddy :)

...with my sweet sister-in-law :)

...and with the great-grandpa! :)

Eric's brother and sisters were very excited, too! Kyle has been asking us for a while when he would get to be an uncle. He wanted a ring bearer or flower girl for his wedding next June, but I'm afraid our baby will be a little too young. :) ...and I can almost guarantee that Julie has already gone shopping and/or already bought something for her niece or nephew! :)

Needless to say, it is so touching to have people in your life that truly care about you. I felt it when Eric and I got married, and now to experience it again... just awesome. :)

P.S. When we told Mr. Terry, he cried... in Chili's. :)
