A day of reveals

About an hour after we surprised Grandpa P with his birthday card, Nate's phone began ringing.  He pulled it out of his pocket and the word "Bro" flashed across the caller ID.  Maybe it was all the baby talk going around these days; maybe it was a gut feeling; maybe it was intuition, but all we needed was to hear the words to confirm our suspicions...SIL is pregnant!

Wait!  Weren't we supposed to be making this call to them???  Are we really due just weeks (if not days) apart???  Am I seriously going to be an aunt and a mom before I turn 35???  Turns out the answers (in no particular order) are: yes, yes, and yes!

Congratulations, Bro/BIL and SIL!  We can't wait to share this experience with you both!

Of course, our next call was to Grandma and Grandpa L.  After some technical difficulties, we got Skype up and running for the first time ever so we could tell them "in person."  After some chitchat about jobs, puppies, and life in general, Nate asked, "So which one of you is coming to California, and which one of you is going to Florida in September?"  

No need for explanation, hands flew in the air and applause broke out.  

Three years ago, they celebrated the marriages of both of their sons and gained two new "daughters."  And now look forward to becoming first-time grandparents two times over all within the same month.  

Congrats, Grandma and Grandpa L -- times two!
