A grandson!!! yippie!!!
Yeah!!! Thanks for calling last night and letting me know!
Yaaaaay! Also: I miss! you. We should stage a post-Thanksgiving hang out. With or without pie.
That’s so exciting and fantastic! Congratulations!!
This whole time Jake has been certain that we’re going to have a boy, simply because the Luikens children are all boys. But when he heard you guys were having a boy, he said, “Maybe we’re having a girl.” I am so excited for you guys and can’t wait to see you at Christmas!
