I'm Positive

I know I already made "the" announcement but I wanted to share this too.

Date - Wednesday, December 17, 2008

I went to the doctor today for everyone's favorite my yearly check-up. You can imagine my surprise when the nurse came in, taunting me in a sing-song voice of "I know a secret..., I know a secret". A secret you say? What on earth could it be?! I'm NOT pregnant. I know I'm not!

My identity is verified. Yes, I am Greta. Results are shown. Nurse leaves to double-check results and returns to confirm...Sam's having a little brother or sister. And we could not be any more excited.

A friend in my small group, Lindsay, had a great idea. This is actually how she broke the news of her pregnancy, to the internet. I'll just follow suit.


Dear Second L.C. (Little Carter),

Just like your big brother, you were desired greatly and have been prayed for so much already. Your dad and I can't wait to meet you, hold you, get to know you and watch Sam with you. We're pretty sure he'll be excited, maybe a teensie bit jealous, but excited nonetheless once you get here.

Our family already feels more complete knowing that you are due to make an appearance shortly. We've tried to imagine what you'll be like but it's difficult to think about a child of ours being different from Sam. You'll understand that when you have your own kids.

We love you. We're praying for you. Don't keep us waiting too long. And please be a good sleeper.

Love,
Mom
