Ideally, we'd be telling both of our parents this weekend, however, Ryan's parents are out of town until next week. So, we're starting out by telling my mom. I tried to think of something creative, but really... how creative can you be with telling the news? Frankly, I don't have the braincells to come up with something thats actually unique (btw... those of you who DO know the scoop... if you have a creative idea, toss me a bone and maybe I'll do something new with Ry's parents).

Anyhow, I made this shirt for Porter... $3 shirt from WalMart, $3 iron ons... voila!
My mom was stopping by today to drop off a movie (Wild Hogs) for Ry and I to watch tonight. I put the shirt on Porter and waited for her to stop by.
When she walked in, Porter -of course- went to pick up the silo to his barn and proceeded to carry that around in front of his shirt for a few minutes. I just sat there, heart pounding, willing him to put the damn thing down so I could get the excitement over with!
He finally put it down and started playing with the animals with my mom.
For like TEN FREAKING MINUTES! For nearly 10 minutes she named ever darn animal in his silo, and made the noises and laughed with him and even POKED HIS BELLY with the cow! Then she started blowing bubbles with him.
I sat there, biting my cheek... "READ THE SHIRT READ THE SHIRT YOU ARE STARING AT!!" I kept thinking.
Finally, after about 10 minutes, I notice her look at him weird.
"Where'd he get that shirt?" she said to me, confused. "Are you PREGNANT!?" she finally put two and two together HAHA!
She was excited. Now she'll be a "damma" times three!!
