A fun little video.

Thursday, March 22, 2012

Shawn and I went over to my parents' house for dinner a couple weeks ago, and soon after we arrived, Shawn said, "Hey, I have this new app on my phone that I want to show you. Can we go outside where the lighting is better and I'll take a picture?" 

And it went like this...

Are my parents' faces not priceless?! I think I've watched this video at least 30 times. It was quite an overwhelming moment for all of us (hence my constant nervous laughter). I'm so glad we captured this moment for all time. 

(Many more details to come... don't you worry.) :)

    2. Thanks, Mandie! I didn't realize the video was without sound when I sent it to y'all (sorry!). Thanks for being excited with us (Ruby included).

    3. We called my folks today and Ruby was talking to them. They mentioned Nashville and Ruby looked confused. I told her that's where you live. A couple minutes later, she said to my mom, "Whitney is having a baby!" And she got all excited all over again! And...having read your more-recent "Letter to a baby" I just wanted to say, I am a not-at-home-100%-of-the-time-mom and it definitely has made me a better mom to have some "me" and "adult" time away from the kids. I am a 92%-stay-at-home-mom. (That's 12 hrs a week during the school year job!) You'll be great. Enjoy the ride!

  21. I am totally going to steal this and use it on my parents someday! How fun to have their first reactions recorded! :) I look forward to hearing how God builds your family through adoption and birth as you serve Him.
