That Sunday, we drove home and my heart was pounding. I knew Eric would be excited, but it is still a scary thing to say out loud....I mean you are changing everyone's lives that are close to you. We got home and I immediately called Eric upstairs to tell him. I told him that he needed to keep Nov open and he asked why, so I gave him the calendar. He read it and totally got it! He was so excited!!!!! He couldn't keep it from the kids so we told them right away too (I was very nervous to tell them) and they were excited! I believe Kaylie said, "It better be a girl". Then off to tell my parents. I don't know why, but I was SO nervous about it. Not to tell my mom, I knew she would be excited, but to tell my dad... he'd know....ya know;) We give them the frame that says I Love My Grandparents and in the middle it says 'picture to be inserted Nov.2007'. My mom didn't really read the fine print and thought it was very nice that their new step-grandkids were giving them this frame. I told them to read the fine print and I will never forget my dad, "No way....so it was immaculate conception then". And by this time my mom was crying and was calling everyone she knew. We called Eric's family to tell them and then it was on to the rest of the world.
That trip was special. It was the last time we went on a trip without babies in our lives, it was a moment that I will never forget, it was the day I realized that my life would never be the same again.
