In December, Nick and I headed home for a Christmas visit. We went home 2 weeks before Christmas, because tickets are much more reasonable, and we were able to have someone watch the dogs.
We flew into Dayton, then drove to Indiana to spend 3 days with Nick's mom. It was REALLY funny telling her we were having a girl. Nick's mom has been saying for EVER that she wants a girl (she has 3 grandsons already). I had bought a "grandma's brag book" in pink to reveal the gender to her--and she didn't notice at first! She was proudly holding it up and showing it around. Her husband Nick said, "You can put pictures of your grandsons in there," and when I said, "Why would I do that? It's pink," is when it finally sunk in. I really wish we had this on video, because she literally screamed for about 20 seconds.
After a few days in Indiana, we went back to Ohio and spent a few days in my hometown. We had my family's celebrations all on Saturday--my mom's side in the morning, and my dad's side in the evening.
