The Big Announcement

If you know me at all and know anything about me, you know my big sister is pregnant! We are all so excited for Sarah and Ryan to welcome their bundle of joy. It was so hard to keep the secret at first. Sarah and Ryan were very creative in telling the family. They invited the whole family to their house for dinner. Ryan had just made their dining room table and it was labor day weekend so I really didn't think about it. Sarah cooked a yummy dinner and we all enjoyed talking. After dinner, Sarah and Ryan told everyone that they appreciated their support in helping them with school, moving, Ryan's job, etc and so they had a gift for the parents. The funny thing about all of this is that, it is totally like Sarah and Ryan to just be sentimental like this, so I don't think any of us really expected an announcement like this. Anyway, they brought out a gift and the mom's both opened it to see this cute announcement.

Everyone was so in shock that we all took a second to react. Then the tears and hugging began. Even the grandpa's were wiping their eyes. Sarah showed us the ultrasound and we heard all about how Sarah told Ryan. It was such a great night! We all left on cloud nine. 

The next day we planned on going to the outlets and snuck in a little gift for Baby Vorwaller. It was gender neutral so we could get away with it! 

We had to wait what seemed like forever to find out the gender. Sarah and Ryan got a cake with filling that was colored to reveal the gender. We Skyped in and Ryan's sister and her husband, his best friend and his wife and the parents were all there. Mike couldn't Skype in so Sarah called him after. Then they cut the cake to reveal… a little girl! It was general hysteria and excitement after that.

Sarah also got to see the baby and it really looks like a baby! She has a face and feet and toes! I can't believe that Sarah is really pregnant and having a little baby girl. I can't wait to meet her and watch her grow up. It is going to be so exciting over the next few months as we get ready for her arrival. Can't wait to meet you Baby Vorwaller!
