Bursting

So I haven't had this video camera long enough to figure out how to edit anything. It's the first part of this video (maybe the first ten seconds or so) that really counts.

Recaps of the rest of Harper's (3rd!) birthday celebration coming soon.

Okay, right here there is supposed to be a video of Harper opening a t-shirt that says, "Big Sister 2008." That's how we told our visiting friends and family that we are expecting another child. Harper opens the shirt, holds it up, and chaos breaks out. Sadly for me, neither blogger's video uploader nor YouTube are wanting to cooperate with me right now, so you are getting this message instead of a fun video. But hey, we're pregnant!


Our new arrival is expected May 6, 2008!

(Just for the record, I have been keeping this secret from most of the world, including our parents, since late August. We waited this long so we could share the news with our families when all the grandparents were together. I think I've nearly exploded several times from the stress of keeping this secret/fear I was going to reveal it.)

Hip Hip HOoray! So happy for you!

And kudos on the secret keeping. Now your family will feel like this pregnancy is nice and short. ;) I always felt a little bad spilling the beans at 8 weeks because the grandparents had to wait so long for the actual baby. ;)

HI Kelsey and Matt - it's Elaine and Jay Skeldon. We check this blog about once a month and what a fun surprise this morning!! While celebrating our anniversary last night, we were thinking about you (becuase we always think of you at our anniversary because of your birthday)...and we both said "I bet they will have another baby soon - we should hear something soon!"

CONGRATS and keep us posted!

Such wonderful news!! I don't know you, I just happened to hear about your pregnancy news from Swistle! I just went for my first scan today. I am 11 weeks along. The doctor told me he may be arrogant, but he can pretty much tell me its a girl. He said I shouldn't really tell anyone or buy anything pink. Of course I have told EVERYONE I know its a girl!!!
