Big, bouncing, BLUE news!

Everyone remember Sword in the Stone? Sir Pelinore shouting, "I've got big news from London! BIG NEWS! Drop the gate!"

Well, it replays in my head anytime I hear the phrase "big news." And boy, do we have big news. From Louisiana. ;)



I could show you a big porcelain throne (aka the toilet), but that's not very fun. This is though.
And by the way, that isn't my first huge jar of pickles.

Have you guessed it? Ta -da! I'm pregnant!


And somewhere in my fervor I seem to have converted Deborah to pickle eating. :)
 Deborah is THRILLED that a baby is coming and loves to talk to the baby - and especially to tell it to grow big and strong so that it can come out and play. :)

I was having some issues the other day, so I went to see the doctor (things are okay), but while there the ultrasound tech said, "Hey, do you want to know the gender? Because I've got it right here!"

After a brief, silent battle within myself because Derek wanted to be there, I eventually asked her to write it down for me so that I could take it home and we could find out together. ...AND since it was already in the envelope and everything we decided for fun to stop by Krispy Kreme and ask them to make the surprise reveal donuts we had heard about. We gave them the envelope and waited - laughing with excitement and anticipation.

It was a pretty awesome wait. We all got hats and the staff members were so excited for us they gave us 3 free hot, glazed donuts to eat while we sat! They were all adorable - so smiling and happy for us. When we came up to pay, they were practically bursting - it made it such a fun experience.

We waited until we were home to each take a bite and find the color - would it be pink or blue?! We were anxious to find out, but the anticipation was pretty darn fun.
And then -
Don't worry, we checked the envelope to verify that good ole' Krispy Kreme did it right. ;)
A bouncing, baby boy to join us! Wow! I had always kind of felt that it was a boy (this pregnancy has been so different than Deborah's), but at the same time it seems kind of crazy - as if I always give birth to girls. But really, I only have one. Haha! Anyhow, we are super excited to meet this little man. And feel so incredibly blessed.
 
 And I can't leave off how much Deborah LOVED her first donut experience. She almost never gets sugar (I think I can count the time she's had sugar on my hands) so this was like Christmas and Birthdays all in one. Do you think she liked it?
And our Little Mr. is coming early November!

Congratulations! What a fun idea! I think we'll do that next time I'm pregnant. Deborah looks so happy with her doughnut! I love it. Do you guys avoid added sugar? Just curious because we are starting a no-sugar diet. I'd love some tips if you have any. :)
