Christian: I think we should wait to tell our family until you go to the doctor next week and make sure everything is okay.
Ashlee: I agree. Let's not tell anyone until next week.
No lie...this was our conversation on the way home from dinner...
Ashlee: Wanna go tell our parents right now?
So we managed to come up with a story about needing to drop off a gift at my mom’s house and we actually packed the gift with 4 positive pregnancy test. So this is what happened when she opened the gift.
It was priceless! Later on Saturday, we were busting at the seams to tell Christian's parents. We just couldn't wait. We decided that since we had captured my parents on video that we wanted to capture his on camera. So we invited Mr. Steve and Mrs. Brenda over for a casual Saturday dinner. Before leaving for dinner, Christian acted as though he wanted his dad to help him figure out a particular setting on the camera, after playing around with the new setting for a moment, Christian said "Okay...let me test this out...Mom, Dad, Ashlee, stand together and let me get a picture." So we all lined up and Christian said "Everyone say... Ashlee's Pregnant!" Well at first both of them just said it casually...not really getting what Christian just said. Here is the picture of them both casually repeating what Christian just said. Then it dawns on Mrs. Brenda what he just said...although Mr. Steve doesn't quite get it yet... Now they both get it...
Let the waterworks begin!!!
Such a precious moment! No doubt both sets of grandparents were ecstatic and overjoyed at the news. This baby is so blessed to be born into a family with such a strong foundation on both sides of our family. God has truly blessed us.A big thanks to our parents for guiding us, teaching us and leading the way...for making us who we are today...and for being the best example of how to be amazing parents! We love you guys!!
