We're going to have another baby in the house!!!
We're so excited :)! It came as a total surprise. I mean, who thinks "Mommy is sending Tori and I out to check the mail together. She must be expecting!"? Even IF their Daddy is standing on the porch with his camera?
Now, before you get any of the meaning of all this, I'll have to explain a few things. First: with both Abbi and Emmi, Mommy got a newborn sized sample diaper in the mail just a few weeks before she found out she was expecting. So, we've joked the past year that if we get a newborn diaper in the mail, we're all going to think we're going to have another baby in the house soon.
Next, don't think we didn't SEE Daddy outside taking pictures. We saw him all right, but we thought that he was taking pictures of the heron that was in the retention pond beside our house- he does that every time he sees the bird. So, it was a big surprise when we saw that diaper in the mailbox :).
We're all so happy! Andrew, who told Mommy when Emmi was on the way "I want an Abbi like an Andrew" (read: I want a baby like a boy) was talking about the baby to Emmi (who he loves to pieces!) today, and he says: "Mommy is having a baby. And maybe it will be a boy!!! But, if it isn't, that will be a LOT of sisters in this house!!!" Love his way of putting things :)!
