I just can't keep a secret

A few days ago I took one of these... And 3 minutes later, it looked like this....
2 lines baby! Looks like we will be a family of six in just a few months:) I surprised Joey with it as a wrapped gift. When he opened it, Ella didn't understand what it meant. She said, "What does that mean anyways?" Then we explained it to her and she looked at my tummy with a bewildered look and said, "No, you're not pregnant!" Then she walked up closer to my tummy and said, "Ohhh, yes, you do have a big tummy Mom!" Thanks Ella:) Oh, and then she proceeded to tell me I should put the "thermometer" back in my mouth. That girl is hilarious. If only she knew what the pregnancy "test" involved:)

So, I have my first doctor's appointment in about a week and a half. I know its soon to be announcing, but I just can't help it! We are so excited! I'm the type of person that just can't keep it to myself. I'll keep you posted on everything!

The Blonde Duck said...

Congratulations! How exciting! Please tell me you didn't follow your daughter's advice and put the "thermometer back in your mouth." LOL

It took me a second to get the family of 6 part. I thought you were having triplets for a second. Then I realized four kids + two parents = six! I'm so smart!

the duchess said...

Congrats! Happy pushing.

jennifer said...

Congrats to your family! I'm so excited for you! I even got teary-eyed when I read your news! I hope you have a boy! I'm sure I'm not the only one telling you that!

Katie said...

Congrats!!! You definitely have the right idea being pregnant during the winter and not the summer. It sure is amazing how two pink lines can change your life =).

hoLLy said...

you are right, i do think about the time of year i will be pregnant. its important! i had aubrey in september(it was my first baby, i wasn't thinking! :) and experiencing the last two months in texas heat was not fun at all! my pregnancy with cali was great! she was a march baby and this one should be an april baby. i'm looking forward to a summerless pregnancy:) well, other than the first 2 months.

Mindi said...

Marie said...

Congratulations Holly!!! I'm so happy for you and Joey, and the girls! My middle son and his wife are expecting now as well! I'm like you, I just can't keep anything to myself either! I'm glad you shared this with us and I wish you a happy, healthy and wonderful nine months!

mamapickle said...

OH Congrats!!! That is so great :) If you do have a boy he will have to be a strong one to keep his sisters from taking over. i am so excited for you and glad that someone else is entering the realm of 4 kiddos!

Champion Family said...

YEA HOLLY...oh, and good job Joey, I'm sure she couldn't have done it without you. I think we're taking turns. I had 2 kids between Ella and Cali and now you're having two kids between Trey and my next baby...not announcing anything people, just saying I know we're not done, we're just not in that big of a hurry either.

The Gordons said...

Congratulations to you and your growing family! I myself can't wait to see if it is another princess or a prince! Congrats again!

Kari said...

WhaHOOOOO! I am so excited for you!!!! Little girls are so fun...(as you know) And little boys are a blast too! Either way, I'm sure you are thrilled! So happy for you! 4 is an awesome number!!!

Suzie said...

woooohoooo! congrats to all of you. With the gorgeous little people like you guys make you should spread the beauty and have 10.

Too early to hope for a Joey Jr?


hope you are feeling good, Holly!

WOO HOO!!! How wonderful!! With wonderful parents like Joey and yourself how can the babies not be lining up in heaven to come down to the Duenas home?!!
It always comes in threes so I wonder who will be next? Secrets are fun but so hard to keep. I will just have to let you wonder until that person makes her secret known.
Not me~ though I wish it was! Oh well! Secrets like that can't hide for very long!!

Cindy said...

Congrats!! You know I LOVE your babies!! I'm glad to have another one to add to our growing family..... maybe a boy??? Doesn't matter to me, as I count, because you make such precious little girls.....

I say bring it on baby this is summer baby #2 for me and i love being PG in the summer the clothes are way more cute... and what better excuse to spend 99% of the summer months in a swimsuit.
