The Part I Left Out

I haven't been completely honest. Well, that may be a bit harsh. There is just a little something I left out...

Remember this post:

We surprised Morgan's parents with a new laptop that we snagged during Black Friday sales. We are not good at surprises, so we were thrilled that we managed to pull it all off!



Well, there was a certain picture on the desktop with the REAL surprise.
(The same picture was at the end of the DVD of photos we sent to my family.)

And from the same post:

I sent the Irishman to the 'chemist' yesterday to pick up some cough medicine for me. I gave him very specific directions about which one to get. For reasons I won't go into, they would not sell him any cough medicine unless I'd been seen by a doctor. Great.The reason the "chemist" would give me any medicine is related to the picture on the desktop...


Then there was this post:

Unfortunately I do not have time to take off work waiting for the Irishman to recover from the flu. I am not quite 100% myself, but I have been on my medicine a little longer than the others and am on the mend. I had to make a really tough decision this morning. I am second guessing myself every chance I get. I am heading back across the pond tomorrow without the Irishman or Caitlin.You see I needed to save my sick time for August. I also had a big appointment scheduled for the week they were gone. As it turned out I ended up at the doctor earlier in the week than planned because of my cough. Given everything that had happened that week she took pity on me and my irrational fears that something was wrong and ordered a peace-of-mind ultrasound.

We sent my mom a photo message like this:


It's bad enough they put me in this costume, and now they say the kids around here are multiplying like rabbits. Not sure what that means, but at least I got some white chocolate buttons out of it!

Monday

I had another doctor's appointment. Afterwards we stopped at the Babies R Us clearance sale


 and picked up a few things for the fall.

So yes, there is a part I left out...

Our little family of three is becoming a family of four.
Our new arrival is due in early August and we are thrilled!

Thanks! Yes, Shannon, I'd just found out the night before our get together. Funny how Kim asked you and Soni about plans for a second child, but she never got to me! Not sure I'd have kept a straight face...
