Surprise!

I can't believe we made it 4 months with this secret, but somehow we did it! We arrived at the airport lastnight (after about 24 hours of travel) wearing the following . . .


Can you figure out what Renae's shirt says even though you can't see all of it? (See my shirt if you still need a hint.)

And why are we wearing blue shirts? (ok so they're more aqua than blue)
Because we found out we are having a boy!! In Spain they do ultrasounds at each appointment so we were able to find out at 16 weeks. We reviewed the word for "girl" and "boy" in our heads just incase we had a language braindead moment while the doctor told us what we were expecting.

And to answer a few questions . . .
  • Yes, Renae's brother will be born in Spain.
  • I'm due October 11th.
  • We found out at the beginning of February. (p.s. One pregnancy test cost almost 15 dollars!! Good thing it was positive!)
  • Only friends on this side of the ocean and Jesse's immediate family knew. They have been troopers to help keep this a secret.

Someday I'll do a few posts about the differences in doctor's appointments here and in the states. I'm learning to convert back and forth from kilo's to pounds, and I'm learning all kinds of vocabulary words I thought I'd never need to know . . .

We're here for awhile as we enjoy my brother's wedding and time with family. Thanks for reading!

Where is Jesse's sign that says "baby daddy"?

You guys are going to have a great time!

You'll have to keep us posted, or tell us about when you get home.

Note: Start thinking about baby items...baby items here are EXPENSIVE!

Congratulations! I bet your family was surprised and delighted about your news. Did anyone suspect?

We'll be praying that all goes well. Your vocabulary will greatly increase and doors will open that otherwise would not have. Our blessings to you both!

You forgot to mention that TIM KNEW! By the way, I am no longer upset with him...but he has learned his lesson...next time someone tells him a secret is needs to say, "is it okay if I tell Tarica"!! We watched the video from the airport..it's pretty funny!
Looking forward to seeing you guys again next week!
