Keeping Secrets

So far I've been pretty good at it.  We told my in-laws this weekend and they were very happy for us and excited for their impending second grandchild.  Idiot BIL swore he won't say anything on facebook, so hopefully that means my parents won't find out until we tell them (whenever that is).  So yeah, for the most part I've been good about keeping a secret since I've had an outlet to spill with others.

Well, now I might have to test my secret keeping abilities for real.  I am having the MaterniT21 test tomorrow and part of that is finding out the sex of the baby earlier than normal (with 99.something percent certainty).  I'm not sure how soon we'll get the results, but I assume we'll have them by my next OB appt on the 26th at the latest.

We could tell people then, but I've gotten an interesting proposition.  We're having some more family pictures taken towards the end of next month - our first ones were when Andrew was 6 months and I absolutely LOVE them.  Well, our awesome photographer, Selena Stoney, emailed me yesterday and asked if we want to integrate a little reveal into our photoshoot, maybe with balloons or something.  I love the idea and think it would be so much fun to do something like that.  The question is, can I keep a secret for more than a month???

So, although we will know relatively soon what is cooking in there, I am going to do my damnedest to not let anything slip until we get our photos done.  Yep, I'm gonna be a total tease  ;)


  1. As in, you won't tell US either?!?! AAHHH! You are a tease. haha!

  2. The photography idea is a a good one. But I can only imagine how hard it will be not to tell.

  3. EEEEEE! I like the waiting for the photos idea!!!

    1. Well, we should know by next Friday so we'll see if I am able to keep my big trap shut!
