How we told our parents...

Today has been a little surreal. I have to keep reminding myself that Dr. Batres DID call me yesterday and tell me I was pregnant! AHHHH!

When Dr. B told me I could come in on Sunday I was so excited! I had to go to Wal-mart for groceries because we had NOTHING to eat in the house. I went to the baby department and found a couple of bibs that said "I love grandma" and "Grandma doesn't say no" lol. I wrote a little poem, said this...

Dear Nana & PaPaw (or MiMi & PaPa)

I asked mommy and daddy to drop this by
Just to say "I love you" and just to say "hi"
It won't be too long now before we meet
And you'll finally get to count the toes on my tiny little feet.

I know you have been waiting for me to make my debut
I have also been waiting, but for me, all of this is so new!
So, until then, I'll be growing so strong
April will be here before we know it, so it won't seem too long.

Dawson Paul Brown and/or Malia Grace Brown

LOL - my favorite part was the AND/OR part on the names :-) I got the call at 11:16 am and knew I had to beat Debra & Johnny (Matt's parents...aka, Mimi & PaPa) and my parents (Nana & PaPaw) home from church and the lake!

I left the the bibs around the door handles and scrolled the poem up...

Anyway, everyone was completely surprised and excited! Mission accomplished!
