For this post, I have to include not only a picture, but a video as well. The best surprises for me always come at the doing of my kids. Some of them are bad surprises – like finding out my oldest son was peeing in the corner of his room, for example. But, most of the time, my boys surprise me in great ways – cleaning up after themselves, hugging each other, eating everything on their plate without throwing a fit OR throwing their food.
So, my post includes a picture of one of our best surprises – when we decided to tell my mom we were pregnant with Baby #2. We had Ethan break the news by wearing this shirt:
The link below features our family blog – one I’ve kept to document events, pictures, etc. for the family we have that we don’t see very often. Towards the bottom of the post is a video of my mom finding out about Baby #2.
Her reaction is the best – pure surprise, pure joy. This was about two years ago, and Jackson has continued to be a source of joy and surprises. I especially love this video because of Ethan’s sweet little voice. He was 2.5, not yet the crazed-talker he currently is. Just an awesome memory all around.
