How we told our family...

I am linking up with Kelly at www.kellyskornerblog.com for show us your life Friday. I thought it would be fun to document how we told our families we were pregnant with Riggs since I haven't written it down anywhere!
We found out the week of July 4th while on vacation with Andrews family that we were pregnant. Andrew refused to believe it or even get excited until we went to the doctor! I, on the other hand, was already trying to plan how we would tell everyone, calling the doctor ect. All that to say, on July 29th (our 4th anniversary) we had our first doctors appt at about 6 weeks along. I had my first ultrasound and we were able to the little peanut and the little heartbeat!
All this time we knew we would be going home (or visiting Augusta) the friday after this appointment which was on a Thursday! So I had planned a birthday dinner for Andrew (his birthday is the July 28th, the day before our anniversary:) with my parents and brother and his parents and one of his brothers (his oldest brother and his wife live in Savannah) and their families. We were going to all meet up at T-bonz for dinner. I was getting a "surprise" cake for Andrew to have while we were there. To make a long story short, our waitress brought out the cake with candles, plates, ect. and Andrew and I awaited everyones reaction! No one said a word! My brother across the table from me started tearing up but didn't say anything. My mom apparently couldn't read it and Andrew's mom had the Susan shocked face on for a few seconds, or maybe minutes! Once everyone realized what the cake said the reactions were great and mostly expected! We are so thankful to be able to look back to almost a year ago and see how the Lord has brought us great joy from this little life!
