A Baby Announcement

by Meghann on January 27, 2014



Not mine and Derek’s, but a couple that’s just as equally cool…



My sister and brother-in-law are expecting! I’m going to be an aunt again! Woo hoo!

Yep, after loving and doting on 5 lucky granddogs, my parents are finally getting their first grandchild and they couldn’t be more excited. They even bought the baby his/her first outfit.


Baby’s first ski patrol onesie!

Kelly and Anthony told the family on Christmas eve. Kelly and I went for a run that morning and she was complaining about how slow she was, how much her boobs hurt, how tired she was, etc. I was completely oblivious to all her complaints and just kept running and talking. Finally she goes “Do you know why I’m all of these things?!” umm… “You’re Pregnant?!”

She told my parents later that evening with some early Christmas presents. My mom got a grandmother themed book and my dad got a shirt that said “Best Grandpa Ever.”



Needless to say, everyone was beyond thrilled with the news.



My little sister is having a baby! How cool is that? Kelly and Anthony are going to be amazing parents.

Congrats, Anthony and Kelly!

Ahhh… I’m so excited.

Awww this post made me tear up! They announced it in such a adorable way to your parents. Funny how she told you too. Love this post! (Jealous a little bit because mine are getting older) With our first we gave my in-laws a pair of itty bitty white booties with the gator logo on them. (Hubby is a fan. I could care less)

This is so joyous! We’re getting married in August, and I never knew if I wanted kids. Whenever I read posts like this, it makes me so happy, and makes me want a little bun of my own. For now, I think I will stick with my little fur babies, but congrats on the new little addition!

So exciting! (Although I definitely thought it was you & Derek when I first read the title of the post πŸ˜‰ ).

23 Mary January 28, 2014 at 2:05 am

What lovely news! And a lovely way to let your parents know.
I’m going to be an Aunt again in August as well. Just before I get married, and one of my best friends is also due twins the same month. August is clearly the month to have babies this year!

25 Stephanie @ Whole Health Dork January 28, 2014 at 6:44 am

So exciting! Congrats to your sister and brother-in-law! I kind of wish I could be an aunt before having my own kids, but seeing how my husband and I are the only ones of our siblings who are married, or even in a serious relationship, I think we’ll be the first ones.

Yay congrats!

Also, does this mean that Kelly completed an Ironman while pregnant? Insanity!!

27 Lindsay January 29, 2014 at 12:25 pm

I was wondering the same thing!? If so…great for her!!

28 Kelly January 29, 2014 at 6:04 pm

I got pregnant immediately after the ironman! Since docs count your pregnancy since the first day of your last period the ironman counts in my pregnancy weeks. πŸ™‚

29 hannah @ palmbeachrunner January 28, 2014 at 9:23 am

Congrats on becoming an auntie!!! It is the best! (and I totally was surprised by the heading haha)
