Told the Inlaws

So glad that's over. It went better than I'd expected. Jon's whole family is one boy, one girl. I wasn't sure how receptive they'd be to breaking that mold of the "perfect" family.

My FIL actually told me he was always kind if sad about not having a third. That shocked me! And it made me feel atom better. Not that I need their approval but his parents are the closest family we have (an hour away) so it's nice to be peaceful at least.

I also told my brother. He isn't home for Christmas this year (neither am I) and so I thought maybe this would cheer him up. He keeps texting me that I'm a liar and he doesn't believe me. Hahahaha. He's such a goofball.

My family Christmas is Sunday. I won't be there (we live 800 miles away) but my best friend is very close to the family and she is going. She will deliver the special cards I had made to my mom and sister. Then all the hiding will be over, finally!!!!

Congratulations. We told our family on Sunday. They were very excited. I have held several losses and I thought they would be upset that I was pregnant again. It feels so good to be "out".

Good luck with everything.

It must feel good just to get the news out there. Yay for telling! That was sweet if DFIL to tell you that. I'm glad it helped you feel better too. Smile

Hubby ran into FIL at Walgreens the other day and he was in the Christmas clearance picking out a stocking for the baby ( they fill stockings for all the family members every year). So cute.
