February 21st, 2006
About a week ago, we spent some time calling, e-mailing, and visiting family and friends. Here are some of the things we heard from various people:
*uncertain nervous silence*
“I’m happy for both of you.”
“Wow!” (Then some excited laughter)
“I wondered. How are you feeling?”
“That’s sweet. Thank you [for calling]. You’ll be great parents.”
“That’s very exciting.” … “We’ll have to get out the grandparent mugs!”
“Oh, I’m just so thrilled! My first great grandchild!”
“WOW! IS LIFE EVER EXCITING! Blessings to all three of you!”
“Did I hear you right? Everyone — TERAH’S PREGNANT!”
Yes, you did hear right! Terah is pregnant! She’s due in October. This will be our first child.
We’re pretty excited! And also a little nervous. And trying to figure out how to arrange our house — its floorplan isn’t the most convenient for young children.
2006 is certainly going to be an exciting year!
