The story of Gabby (part II)

We were actually able to keep the secret of this baby to ourselves for a little while, unlike with Kate where everyone knew as soon as we did (or even before Justin). We made a great plan. I had a shirt made for Kate that said, “I’m going to be a Big Sister.” We took a picture and planned to email it to Justin’s parents, but they were having trouble with their internet, so Justin told them by phone.

I took Kate up to visit with my parents, and she was dressed in the shirt. It was a fun way to see the reactions as people read it and it sank in. My mom asked, “Really?!?” It was kind of funny—no I just thought I’d put her in that shirt for no real reason. :) That’s how my sister and both of my grandmothers learned the news too.
