We're Having A Baby, My Baby & Me!

It's true...Matt & I are going to be parents!
We told my Nana yesterday with an ultrasound picture and a great-grandma poem in a frame. She opened it, re-read the poem, looked at the picture, opened the card, looked up at me and asked, "Is this an announcement?!" I nodded, then she said, "Everyone, look! Matt and Kara are going to have a baby!" And showed the ultrasound picture to everyone. It was perfect :) Bobba said, "I thought that was a cat!" It was hilarious!
We then proceeded to call the Drakes in Kansas and Georgia to share the wonderful news. My mom, dad, sister, and brother, along with Matt's immediate family, have known since March when we found out. We decided to wait to tell everyone else once we were in the safe zone just in case I miscarried. We also wanted to tell Nana in a big way :) She told me that last week she had a dream of me with a baby, but didn't tell me because she knows how bad I want to be a mom. She called this morning and said she could hardly sleep last night because she was thinking about this baby. She thanked me for making her a great-grandma! I am three months along and the due date is November 24th.
Here is a video I put together of the first ultrasound. We think a tripod might be a good investment ;)
