A couple of weeks ago my sweet, wonderful, lovely brother-in-law decided to play a prank on me. What happened was I left myself logged on after using his laptop. Always, ALWAYS log off your username...especially if you have family members who like to be annoying. Anyways, I get home after leaving his house (I went to hang out with my nephews)I get home, get in my jammies, and watch some TV in the livingroom. Meanwhile, my phone is in my bedroom going off like crazy. I thought, who in the world is texting me?!?!? I go grab my phone and find about a million text messages from FB with comments from friends, like "Congrats!" and "OMG, I'm so happy for you!!" I had no idea what was going on. I get on my facebook and realize there was a new status update....clearly not written by me. It said, "OMG! Guess what?!!? Baby Contreras is on it's way!!"

Panic mode set in.

Within 1 minute I had about 17 comments.

Within 1 minute I was getting calls from friends..."ANA! Why didn't you tell me!!!" and "ARE YOU SERIOUS?"

Within 1 minute I got about 10 text messages from friends.

Panic MODE on full blast.

Finally, I was able to delete the update and assure everyone we were not expecting. It made me sad, though...everyone was so happy for us, and for a second I got a taste of how happy and exciting it is to have babies. Having babies is such a beautiful, God given experience...and it's EXCITING.

One day though I will be able to experience this blessing. Just have to get through this time in our lives. One day when we have our ducks in a row, and maybe a little less selfish.

In the mean time I'll enjoy the babies in my life right now. I heart you Maddy, Corrin, Aubrey, Marcello and Javi's, baby Cole, and Isaac.
