a memorable conversation

mountain man brother of mine called me last night to inform me of the message my grayce left on his phone.

"cam, this is grayce. my mom is pregnant. they just told us today and apparently she has known about it for 11 weeks! i think my dad was in on it too because when they told us, he had the video camera going."

we gathered them round with a lovely golden egg containing one beautiful ultra sound picture. we told them it was an egg the easter bunny forgot (we do our hunt on saturday). they opened the egg and grayce asked with a very eight year old voice why on earth we would put an ultra sound picture of one of them in an egg. scotty told them to look at the date on the picture. it read 3/16/2010. she loudly declared:" the third month, the sixteenth day 2010, YOU'RE PREGNANT!"

i was very impressed with her excitement as well as her ability to recite the day!

info. 10/24/10
sick as a dog and know it is worth every second ;)
we are incredibly happy, and weepy. this is very anticipated good news.

Ah-ha!! So a few posts back when you said that you were starting to write on the table for 7 blog again and then you said that you weren't making any announcements about being pregnant, you really WERE pregnant!!! Very clever wording. And Congratulations. This world needs more beautiful long-lashed babies!
