Let the fun begin...

The past couple of weeks have been so.much.fun.

We've been telling people about our news of the little bun on the way.
And telling others has been the BEST part of pregnancy so far.

Several reactions in particular have been quite hysterical.

I'm happy to say that I got the chance to document some.
I'm sad to say that I forgot to whip out my camera on others.

But I'd like to share a few of my faves.

Reaction #1: Confusion and Panic.

(And of course overwhelming excitement...a day later).



Reaction #2: I need to lie down.

Those were the exact words of my mother who was caught completely off-guard.
(Join the club, Mom.)


Reaction #3: Disbelief.

We told some of our besties via FaceTime seeing that they're all the way in Rhode Island.
We held up our sonogram, and they asked,
"Wait. Is that yours?"



Reaction #4: Sheer excitement.

I got to tell my best friend during her bachelorette weekend in Chicago via a poem I wrote.

Her reaction?

A rib-crushing hug, tears, and a "I can't WAIT to be an AUNTIE!"

Wish I could have gotten the initial reaction on camera - it was SUCH a sweet moment.


Only the beginning of some fabulous memories.

And thank you to all of your sweet responses as well!

I love all these photos! And think it's so cute that you caught your husband's reaction on camera.

On Tuesday my best friend spilled the beans that they're expecting #2. She is only 8 weeks along but could NOT hold it in any longer. I was screaming ALLLLL over the place. I would have been mortified if that was caught on camera ;-)
