first comes love, then comes marriage, then comes...

You guessed it!!! A baby in a baby carriage!!! Joey and I are SO EXCITED to announce that we are expecting a little peanut of our own in early May (or April as I suspect). We decided to announce our big news because:

1. I am horrible at surprises and don't really care for them

2. I have been praying to the porcelain god on several occasions

3. People have been calling me out left and right because I haven't been drinking.

My next appointment is November 4th and I look forward to calming some of my irrational fears and getting a little more information about our baby.

The reactions from our friends and family have been priceless! My mom almost passed out, Joey's dad has already put me in a protective bubble, you could have knocked my dad over with a feather and Joey's mom had a sneaky suspicion because my bridesmaid's dress needed 4 inches added into the bust... but all in all, we pulled off the big surprise. Here's how we did it.


These darling cards from Kate Spade said it all. Then on the back of the card we printed a little message "Hip hip hooray! Our baby is on the way!"

So, please keep your fingers crossed that everything goes smoothly and that the morning, afternoon and night sickness starts simmering down soon!

How exciting! Babies, babies everywhere! And to think my own little baby girl, (adopted as my own many, many years ago), Les is going to be a Mama. Your Mom told me to sit down when she called me, I thought maybe after their cruise they were expecting!!! Congrats, you and Joey do great work!
Love ya,
Mama Sherry
