Wow, what a weekend. Our parents went through the roof. They’re so, so excited. My mom actually squealed like a little kid. Ian’s mom kept saying, “You’re having a baby! You’re having a baby!”. Both our dads seemed more stunned by the prospect. Very happy, but in shock over suddenly being grandparents.
Ian’s sister has already decided she wants to be called ‘Auntie Ames’. This kid is going to be so spoiled. My brother was the calmest. Then again, he’s always the calmest. I think I would have panicked if he reacted differently. All in all, the news went over well. I also sent out emails to some of the people I know and love that I don’t get to see too often. Life is good.
