will be joining our little family in July of 2011. It was a hard secret to keep, but it was kept for a while. We told our families around Christmas time and it was a happy moment!
We told my side of the family on Christmas Eve. We were getting ready to go see the Christmas Lights and right before we left, I told Manuel that he had a present he needed to open, and everyone was watching...they all were expecting a beanie and some gloves. As everyone was gathered around the table watching the Man open the present, he opens a Baby Bjorn (a front baby carrier), attached to the box is a note that read "Baby Vega, coming July 2011." However, not a single soul caught on to what the gift was or what the note truly said (some will say it was hard to read because of the background of the paper), however my uncle Scot, a couple minutes after opening the gift, speaks out, not loudly, nor softly, but "Chelsea Dawn, you're going to have a baby?!" It was more of a shock to everyone than anything...but I don't understand why when all the time we were asked "when are you guys going to have a baby?"
It was a delight to share the fabulous and exciting news and be able to talk about it!
We told the Vega's around the same time as well, however a few of them knew prior to the announcement because of trickery...those Vega's know how to trick you into saying stuff....but it's rather fun because my sister-in-law Vanessa is due in June with a little boy as well, so it will be fun to have little cousins around the same age!!
