I am excited to announce that on Wednesday, March 25, we found out that Eila Grace is going to be a big sister! I had been wondering why I felt nauseated the week leading up to that day, and thought pregnancy could be the culprit, but since I was never nauseated with Eila, I wasn’t really sure. After some dizziness, amongst other indications, I went and bought the test, and voila, was notified that Baby A is on his/her way!
This was not a surprise necessarily- Will and I decided after Eila turned 1 that we would “see what happens”, and had been praying that we would conceive again in God’s timing. The surprise was simply at how quickly it happened. Of course, as my mother often says, “God is never late and seldom early”, so in other words, His timing is perfect.
When we found out that we were pregnant with Eila, we were so eager to share our news that we just called our parents and blurted it out. This time, however, we decided to be slightly more creative (though we still coudn’t resist sharing the news in the same day). So, how did we share the news? See below…
After taking this picture, we sent it via email and cell phone to the grandparents. Needless to say, it didn’t take long for our phones to ring with the reactions (which, in case you were wondering, were positive). 🙂
Of course, Eila looks less than thrilled, but she typically looks this way when she stares at a camera due to her contemplative nature. Only eight more months will tell how she really feels. I, for one, think she is going to be an incredible big sister.
