retiring the sign

This has been hanging on the wall in my dining room for the last year:

I made the sign almost exactly a year ago to tell everyone that we were expecting another Windle baby. I took a million pictures of Everett with the sign until I got the two I wanted for our announcement. 

After that, I hung it in our dining room because I just loved it. It was such a sweet reminder (along with my growing belly) of the new life on its way. 

After Graham was born, I just couldn't seem to erase it. Not sure why; however, today I finally need the chalkboard for Everett's upcoming birthday. I took a few last pictures of my baby #2 holding the sign. It's funny to think about all of the unknowns of a year ago --- and now today knowing all of the sweetness and certainty of our lives with Graham.

 I'll miss seeing that sweet sign on our dining room wall.

Seeing that sign on Pinterest was what lead me to your blog in the first place :) It caught my eye because our due dates were only 1 day apart. I gotta admit, I was a little jealous when you were 5 days early and I ended up being 13 days late, LOL.
