BIG NEWS: A Snickerdoodle

This tasty treat of a fellow officially has a Baby Mama.



Exhibit A (The Baby Mama):



Exhibit B (Proof that the Baby Mama is capable of her status and title):









I look good with a baby right? (Now is the time you reassure me that I'm not crazy and that I am indeed capable of all this)

Exhibit C: The Baby Daddy
* I considered not putting any of Papa Snick in this post because he always makes me look bad with his charm and perfect jaw.





He loves making me look bad.



Our Snickerdoodle arrives in April. So that puts me just under 13 weeks. I wish we had a tender ultrasound picture of our delicious snickerdoodle, but our health insurance is... sub par, so we have to wait until we find out the gender (around Thanksgiving) to show everyone the profile of a future America's Next Top Model
...
Just kidding, my thighs? Our baby has no chance! But if Male Snick does nothing else in this life, pray that he contributes 95% of our snickerdoodle's genes, (for the baby's sake, of course).

I'm hoping that declaring my pregnancy on the world wide web will make this all feel more real.

So far, it's not working. Lucky Male Snick is calm, non-neurotic, energetic, and well, not pregnant. He makes up for my crazy, hormonal, slightly chubby, and well, feminine side.

Okay, now for the fun stuff. Here are snickerdoodle's stats so far:
Baby Snick will be:
- The 40th great-grandchild of Eldon and Phyl.
-The 11th great-grandchild of Robert and Delores.
-The 3rd great-grandchild of Evelyn and Bernie.
-The 4th grandchild of Durrell and Shelly.
-The 1st grandchild of Melinda and David.
-And in case you live under a rock, the first child of these crazy people:

Woohoo! I can finally start bragging about another grandchild. Your mom and I are beside ourselves. Rest and care of that baby. Have you thought about names? Darrell is a good choice for either gender...Just a thought.

I am so excited that this is finally public knowledge so I don't blow your cover! I am so ridiculously excited about this, partly so I can become a blood-related auntie and partly so I can "mom-talk" with you but mostly because it gives dad someone else to pester about having more children. Congrats!!! He or she will be absolutely adorable and hopefully will have huge cheeks for squeezing! :)
