The secret is out!

I am really, really, good at keeping secrets. Really. About a month ago Linzi sent me a text with a picture of each of the girls, and a sonogram of a new addition to our family that will be here in July sometime. However, Linzi is having pregnancy problems so they wanted to keep it quiet for awhile. I just didn't realize it was going to be such a long while! ;) I even visited with the girls in Oregon, skyped with Craig and Angie, and still couldn't say anything! Not a word. At one point in time Rach and I were talking and she said something to the effect of, "Do we know anyone who is pregnant right now?" Somehow I steered her away from the topic so that I wouldn't have to lie! It was not easy!

So, today, Linzi saw the doctor, and heard the baby's heartbeat again. Everything looks promising. She has to rest during the coming months, and is carrying the baby very low, so there are some concerns. We are keeping them in our prayers, like always, but even more now. Then she called and told me that she texted everyone and now they know and I can talk about it.


I may be good at keeping secrets, but it doesn't mean that I like to keep them! I am grateful that this secret is out, and that we are going to be welcoming grandbaby #9 into our family. I would love it if he/she came on July 7th, my dad's birthday. I think Sam would like that as well. :)


  1. I'm so proud of you :) I'm sure it was hard

  2. I really appreciate you keeping it for so long while I deal with my paranoia haha! My mom hated keeping it a secret too. July is a special month in our family and I would be thrilled if this baby shared the same birthday as Sam's grandpa. Thanks for your love and support!
