The Big Reveal

Okay, so here's how it played out...

You remember yesterday, I told you I got this package in the mail.

I couldn't imagine what was in it. It felt like a VHS tape, but that just didn't make any sense whatsoever. So, I really had no idea.

Then finally, at about 6:00 pm the call came... while they had us on the phone, we got the go ahead to open the package...

and here's what was in there:

Package 1 and Package 2

Ahhh, now it's starting to make sense... I'll bet there's something blue in one of them and something pink in the other...

Brief pause (and much excitement)... I'm instructed to open package 2....

drum roll.......

Baby DiOrio is a BOY!!! We're going to have a grandson. Words can't describe how thrilled and excited we are, anticipating the adventures that lie ahead.

... It promises to be a future filled with baseballs and footballs; of golf balls and tonka toys! .... of trips to the park and to the zoo... of digging for worms and making homes from mayonnaise jars for bugs (especially lightening bugs!! wink, wink)! It's going to be spectacular and I can't wait to see it unfold.

And aren't they just so clever and adorable for making the reveal so fun for us?!

Thanks, kids! Love you to pieces!!

:-D I'm still giddy. I'm so happy that Nic gets his boy and dad gets his grandson. It's really setting in that there's a human growing inside of me! I'm also very relieved that I can start planning now! Whew! Love you bunches. So glad I could make this fun for and keep you involved. See you in a few days!

A BOY!!! What a fun way to announce it! I checked before we left, this morning, to move cows and bulls AGAIN...nothing.

Finally home, and here it is!!!

Okay, this is the ultimate nosy question...will we get to see an ultrasound picture of the little man? They make me cry, but I love them.

Little boys have their own charm...this is the great adventure, isn't it? I don't think anything in the world can top it.

Sending hugs and best wishes and cheers from Montana!
