Happy Mother's Day ♥ Surprise

This was a Mother's Day surprise for both Ryan's and my mom. (this is also a scheduled post, so I don't know their reactions yet).
I had my first OB appointment this last Tuesday. I must say that it was veiled in "little white lies" and for that I'm sorry. But, after waiting so long to tell family, I thought that Mother's day would be the perfect time to break the news. I knew that my mom would ask too many questions if I asked her to watch Wyatt for me. So we got Ryan's grandma, "Grammy", to watch him for us. It wouldn't have looked too suspicious, except for Ryan took off with the car seat that morning and had to come home early from work. We decided that it was silly to take separate cars just for the sake of keeping our secret. So instead, I dropped him off at BK by Grammy's house, dropped Wyatt off and swung back by BK to pick Ryan up again (he needed to grab a late lunch anyway). We just told her that I picked him up after work, and that's why he was with me when we came to pick Wyatt up.
Honestly, I really don't think I could've hid this for too much longer if I tried. Well maybe if I wore Ryan's sweatshirts all summer...but even then :)

We got to hear little pinhead's heartbeat, which is always a relief. And we got to have our ultrasound on the "big" ultrasound machine. Little pinhead wasn't big enough yet to see what they needed to see, so I get to go back and have another ultrasound this week.
I'm 12 weeks pregnant, so we've known for about 2 months. You have no idea how many people have asked, during this span of time, when we're gonna have the next one.
My response..."Oh, someday".

Happy Mother's Day to all mommies & grammas!

P.S. If you're wondering where pinhead came from, it was from one of those e-mail updates that you get. When this was all very new there was some kind of reference to the fact that the baby was the size of a pin or a pinhead or something. When I told Ryan, he said, "Hey, that's what we should call it". So, Pinhead it is!

Congratulations, Emily! I've been blog stalking tonight and whipped my head around to Adam saying, "YOU NEVER TOLD ME SHE WAS PREGNANT!"
I hope you are feeling well and getting rest. Get off the computer and sleep when Wyatt is napping!
Thanks again for all you did for us. We are so very grateful! Best wishes to you and your growing family :o)
