The Cat’s Outta the Bag!
Yesterday evening, we finally made it official on social media that you were on your way. Obviously most family already knew — and we’d told a few of our closer friends — but it was still news to many, and the response was pretty amazing. I’m not sure what our expectations were, but this certainly exceeded them, and it’s clear you have a lot of people very excited to meet you.
The first video was the one we shared on Facebook, and the second on Instagram — the reason we made two is that Instagram only allows for videos to be a maximum of 1-minute long (15 seconds until recently, so very thankful they changed that), and there are quite a few who either use Instagram or Facebook, rather than both. Facebook’s become a little less cool these days, largely because a lot of the older crowd is now using it (I’m not sure whether I fall into that category yet, but I certainly will by the time you’re reading this).
Of course, I also enjoy making these videos, and it was a fun little challenge to try to squeeze it all into a minute.
You might be wondering why you haven’t yet heard the stories about how we told our families — you will. That picture of all of us at the cabin was taken moments after we told my side of the family (and also a couple days after Uncle Adam and Aunt Nicky got married), but I would like to save that all for a later post. For now, I’ll just say that everyone was absolutely thrilled, and you are going to be one very loved little baby.
