What a great way to share the news with all of us who don't see you often! You're off on a great adventure - it will be wonderful and dreadful all at the same time...but you won't ever trade it for the world!

I read your mom's blog first so I knew before I came here. Congratulations to you and Adrian. You will be a beautiful family. I like the idea of Maternity Mondays.

YEA!!! I'm SOO excited for you two! I had an inkling.. I don't really know why. I've just been checking your blog faithfully hoping for just such an announcement.

Maybe it's "pregnant" intuition :)

Lovely as always - no one can compete with your creativity - even when you're stealing a national ad campaign slogan!! :) Happy to be following your journey as I'm following my own ensuing aunt-hood.

Hadn't taken the time to check your blog recently, what a SUPER FUN way to share your news, you are one sneaky girl, slipping it in there with a report on your day trip to Fort Worth. Kelli, you will be a fantastic mommy, can't wait to meet your little one! When are you due? So thrilled for you! Our due date is March 10 for Baby #2, we'll have to get together for playdates when the time comes!
