Baby Bland 2 on the way!!!!

On Saturday January 18th I got home from work and didn't feel very well. It was such a busy day, I didn't stop going all day long. When I got home all I could think of is how sick I felt. We were going to dinner with some friends that night and I needed to feel better so I would be fun. Then all the sudden it hit me.... Maybe I am pregnant!!! But no there was no way!!!! So I grabbed a test and it immediately was positive!! My mouth dropped... I couldn't even believe it!! As happy as I was I scared and nervous ran through my mind. My baby isn't even 2 and we are now pregnant! So I acted as if I knew nothing and went to dinner... But now knowing I was pregnant I could tell all the symptoms were there and had been there for awhile. Nothing at dinner sounded good and I was exhausted. Through out the past weeks I had moments where I felt nausea, tired, hungry all the time but nothing sounded good, and moody!!! It was all there and while at dinner that was all I could think about. I am sure I was no fun even though I was trying to normal... how can you be normal when you have a huge secret!!!!
So on Sunday I knew I had to tell Griff but I was not prepared to tell him since I hadn't had time to run to store from the time I found out to Sunday morning. I was of course sick that morning so we didn't make it to church... I just laid in bed every chance I could get and Griff was so confused as to why I was being so lazy!!! So I asked him if his parents wanted to come to our house for the bachelor and dinner. That way I had an excuse to run to the store to get some dinner items and to get some things to tell him the news (I know that is breaking the Sabbath but I was desperate to tell him!!!). But his parents told us they wouldn't be able to make it over. So I figured I would have to be creative... So I drew up a BIG SISTER sign and brought down the test I took, and set it on the table. I had Blakelee coloring the sign when Griff came downstairs. He looked at Blake's and asked "what are you coloring?" As he came closer he looked at me and said "Are you pregnant????" with a huge smile!!! As tears ran down my face I shook my head yes!! Next I said... "sorry we can't go on our cruise!!!" We were going to go on a cruise with our friends for our anniversary and her graduating from nursing school, in September! But that won't work out anymore haha!! Griff just laughed and said "it is OK!!!" with a huge hug!!!
It is amazing at how your emotions come into play so quickly!!!
Griffin's parents ended up making it out later so of course we had to tell them. The news is just to fun not to share. So we typed up a big sister sign and taped it to Blakelee's back for there arrival!! When they got to our house  they saw the sign and were thrilled!!!! We then of course talked about when we are due and any names...
The next day on Monday we told my parents kinda of the same way. We gave them a sign as well and they were stoked as well and they asked us the same questions!!!
After our first appointment we found out we are due on September 14th and as of now... No Names that we can both agree on haha!!! Baby names for baby number 2 isn't as easy as baby number 1 was!!
We are thrilled and can not wait to meet this little one!!!!
