Telling Tanner

My husband is really funny. He always tells me that my blog will get more hits if I talk about him more. And he isn't kidding. :) He has asked me several times when I was planning on blogging again, knowing my next post was about him. Well, today is the day!

When I found out I was pregnant, I knew I wanted to tell Tanner in a fun way. I tested positive on a Thursday morning before work. I work with Tanner and I see him several times a day and usually have lunch with him. That Thursday was no different. I was around him all day long! I was nervous that I'd give it away somehow, but I managed to keep myself together. 

I thought all day long about what I was going to do and finally thought of the perfect way to tell him. I bought my nephew Max a gown and blanket set before he was born and he had his newborn pictures made in it. After that, I purchased a boy and a girl set where all of our future kiddos can have the same pic! Love! 

This picture was taken during his newborn photoshoot.. Isn't that adorable?

So, I put both baby girl and baby boy outfits in a sweet little box and also snatched a picture of our sweet girl, Hallie from the fridge and printed "big sis"  on it. 

So, so precious. 

And of course the pregnancy test. 

I boxed it up and nervously waited for him to come home for work. I heard him pull in and I couldn't wait to tell him! I walked outside and met him in the garage. He was just fiddling around in there and I simply told him I had a gift for him inside and I'd be right back with it. As I was walking back in the garage with "gift" behind my back he said "I think it's a wallet.. that's the only thing I need." He always tries to guess what I'm giving him and he's usually right.

So, he opens the box and looks at it for what felt like forever. He finally looked up and asked me if I was pregnant. I was still asking myself the same thing! Ha! He then proceeds to ask me what we were going to do with "this". "This" meaning the box with the test, outfits and picture. I didn't understand what he meant at first but he soon explained that our house cleaner could potentially see the box and know we were expecting. This also made me laugh because out of everything going on in his head right now, THIS was what he was legitimately concerned about! Where to put the box!

My favorite thing he said after finding out? Just this gem: "Maybe you'll start liking peanut butter, Chinese food and onions! That's what I hope comes out of all of this."

Truthfully, Tanner is beyond excited. He is all about our sweet boy and I love this new side of him that I am getting to see. He gives sweet reactions when I show him outfits or talk about Baby B's future. He is a wonderful person, a great husband, and will be the best daddy. We are blessed.
