When a certain something happens in your life, something so special you just have to share, so you make an announcement.  You tell the world your happiness so that they can share in your joy.  Some people announce things quite elaborately, planning and planning until all the details are finalized and then their plan is revealed for all to see.

I thought of a plan to announce my special news, I thought and thought and came up with a number of ideas.

I would make shirts for myself, mi esposo and even little shirts so that the kittens could get in on the act as well.....or I could make a sign, a special sign and display it so that everyone would know about the wonderful event that will be happening in my life soon....or I could play a song that would give a hint to my announcement and then yell out my news to the world.

All my plans were for naught you see as I told everyone in a different way.  I didn't make a shirt with the news thereby sparing my poor kittens and mi esposo from dressing up; I didn't make a signor play a song, instead I told everyone the simple news that has made us so very happy. 

Mi esposo and I are going to have a baby, a little baby of our own.

It might not have been an announcement with a grand design but what you might not realize is that every time I put my hand to my belly and think there's a baby in there, fireworks go off in my heart, my eyes swim with tears of joy and my mind starts to work overtime just wondering is it a girl, is it a boy, will it look like me and have mi esposo's eyes, will it have his thick hair and his sense of humor?

We are going to have a baby and in the words of Mrs. Bennett..."God has been very good to us."
