The biggest secret I ever had to keep


When my mother was pregnant with me, my father bought her a little pair of blue overalls for the baby. A few weeks ago, my father threw a plastic bag at me and LoLo. In that plastic bag was this pair of overalls for a six month old baby.

Have you guessed yet?

LoLo and I are having a baby! Baby Santana is due August 27, 2013.

This was one of the hardest secrets I've ever had to keep. Of course we told our families right away, but told very few others. It was so hard!  My sister has been going crazy waiting for me to announce it, so I guess it was hard for her to keep too.

I'll share the whole story later this week, but we are so excited now that we've gotten over the initial shock.

After all, it wasn't that long ago that I wrote this. And yes, I'm also aware that I totally jinxed myself. But like many people tell me, no time is the perfect time, so here we go!

It's true! There is no perfect time... and if you waited until you were ready, you may never have one! But once the baby is here, you'll only wish you did it sooner! Congratulations!!!
