Cat is Out of the Bag


Well, it's not like this is a HUGE secret anymore cause as most of you know, I can't keep an exciting secret to save my life! I was going to wait a couple of more weeks, but as you can see, that didn't happen! In September, there will be a new addition to the Scott Foley Family! We are super excited. This whole first trimester I have been thinking of creative ways to announce to my blogging world that I was prego, and after sifting through many fun ideas, I settled. That's right, settled into announcing it with a boring post! OH WELL! We are excited and every time I feel sick or have no energy, I have a fun reminder of why I feel like crud! It's still weird and hard to believe sometimes, but after seeing the heartbeat and a picture of our little embryo (almost fetus), it became more real! So, the Cat is OFFICIALLY out of the bag now. I am free to say to whomever I want that I am pregnant! WOW...that still sounds weird....even in writing!! :)

YAY! I already knew, but I was going to let you tell me. September is a good month, specifically September 18th, since that is the day I blessed the world with my presence. Im so excited for you!!

Lindsay said...

Yeah...I figured you knew cause your parents knew! Hey...maybe my baby will be born on your birthday!!! :)

Bethany said...

Mom isnt too good about keeping exciting secrets like that!=) So, has my dad told you that Willy is a good name for a baby? If not, look out because he will.

emily said...

September is a good month for babies--Noah was born on the 3rd--but I gotta say, the summer of 2006 will officially be remembered in my mind as the hottest summer EVER. I have no idea if it was really that hot of a summer, but I have never been so hot as I was that August, 9 months pregnant. I never want to be pregnant in the summer again. So....good luck with that. Heh heh heh.

By the way, congratulations! Scott told Dave and we haven't talked so this is my official congrats to you! And I recommend the Girlfriend's Guide to Pregnancy if you're looking for a funny (and very honest) book about pregnancy.

Lindsay said...

Haha...Thanks Emily! I will have to look into that. I AM NOT looking forward to the HOT SUMMER. It was bad enough without being prego last summer and we were just here for August. OH WELL...

And yes, Bethany...your dad already made mention to name our baby Willy, if it is a boy! I politely declined! Haha

Gary said...

Let the record show that I've known since right after the visit to California. But...have not told a sole.

Lindsay said...

Thank you Gary! You are a good secret keeper!!!

JonandLo said...

yea congrats!! so so excited for you...can't wait to find out what you're having!

jenny said...

Emily is so right about the Girlfriends Guide to Pregnancy! I LOVE that book! Apparently our family has issues with getting pregnant around the holidays :) Andrew-Sept.10th Maggie- Aug.24th Seriously, you will remember it as the most uncomfortable summer of your life hehe:) We are really excited for you guys though. There is just nothing like the excitement of a first baby!

Lindsay said...

Haha!! Thanks for the comforting words about the summer! That was my first thought when I found out I was prego was that I would have to withstand the heat and humidity of the summer!! Oh well... And as far as the holidays...it's all about Holiday Magic...OR...a lot of time on your hands!! :)

Gleason Family said...

YAAAAAY!!!! Sooooo excited for you guys! You are going to be the cutest pegnant gal with the cutest belly. Can't wait to know what you are having. (even though I don't like to find out with my own kids.) :) Love ya!

Tyson and Jen said...

Lindsay! CONGRATS!!!!! :) I feel for you in the "feeling like crud department". I was sick from october all the way through mid january! It was bad! But there is light at the end of the tunnel and it's wonderful! So I pray for you it's only the 1st trimester for you!! You and Scott are going to be awesome parents! I dont know scott, but he's got to be pretty amazing - he married you! You are going to be such a fun mom! Now it will be fun to hear what you guys are having!! HOORAY for you guys!!!

Lisa K said...

I had completely forgotten that this was still a secret! =)

You are going to be a cute mom!

Lindsay said...

Awww...thanks everyone!! Im so excited!

julz said...

yeah!! now I can stop trying to remember who knows and who doesn't know! Cross your fingers for a little girl and a whole bundle of hand me downs from miss anna... or else a boy cousin to play with baby luke. I guess it is a win win either way...

Shannon said...

WOOHOO!!!!! I'm so STINKIN happy for you guys! YAY!! When are you due? How far along are you?? WOW, WOW, WOW! You guys will have GORGEOUS kids! Congrats!! :)

honus and Cameron said...

yay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Vivian said...

Ditto what Gary said. We were true to our word and didn't tell a soul. You kept dropping such big hints on your blog and in comments on other's blogs, I was surprised nobody 'picked up' on it. Now I'm thinking that everyone already knew but nobody wanted to say anything because it was supposedly a secret. How exciting for you! And Willy isn't so bad if you make it William:)

Lindsay said...

Haha...Vivian, I agree. It would not be Willy, but William. Now we have the challenging part to figure out names...we still have time though!!

Sarah said...

Oh my gosh!!!! I am so happy for you guys! congradulations!!!!!! I am so excited yay yay yay!

Bethany said...

He has been trying to get people to name a baby Willy for as long as I can remember. No one has taken him up on that offer. I dont blame them! Even his daughter said no to him. I old him it would MAYBE be a middle name.

Cynthia said...

Well I think "Fred" is a cute name! That's what your dad always used to say when we were prego. Glad the "cat" is finally out of the bag!!! I'm not as good as Gary & Vivian, I did tell Sue & she told Heather. ha ha ha What could I do?

Eric and Kassi said...

September is a great month! Eric and I are both September birthdays! Congrats!

Tami said...

YEAH! Congrats Linds! How are you feeling? September does seem like a good month. So excited for you guys!

Gary said...

Just a comment on the name "Fred". The Foley's experience with that name has not been very good. A lot of goldfish were named Fred and they all died early deaths.

Lindsay said...

Haha...no worries!!! There will not be any "Fred's" in the Scott Foley Family!

Chelsy said...

Linds...glad its out there, I can finally tell my parents (unless your mom has already sounded the same horn she sounded when you got engaged! haha! Love ya Cin!)

So is Juls baby going to be named Luke (looking at previous comments)? They name him after Brian's friend in hopes their baby will also be a crazy good running back for BYU?

And I think you should have your baby on the 16th so that you NEVER forget my birthday again!!! :o)

Lindsay said...

Haha...serious Chels! I had the same thought when I saw the due date ;)

I guess they just really like the name Luke. BUT I don't think Juls is sold on it yet.

Gleason Family said...

Regarding your comment about Rowan looking just like me- It wasn't her ginormous double chin that made you say that, right? Just checking. Ha ha ha. No, I actually think she looks more like me too. Funny because Lydia looks just like David's side. I can't wait to see YOUR baby! He/she will be TOO CUTE!

Kelsey K. Hartley said...

Such exciting news! No matter if it's a boy or a girl I know they're going to be a cutie. I hope they have Mom's curly hair...it's sooo cute on a kid!

Boquinha said...

We're SO excited for you guys!! And we can hardly wait for you guys to visit with the wee little one! :)

Jenny said...

DO you have any sample face stuff. I need something for tiny wrinkles under my eyes, and I'm still working on this forehead of mine. Let me know I need to try something. Email, call, facebook, anything. LOL!

Trav and Kris said...

Big, fat, hairy congratulations you two!!! We are sooo excited for you! Hope you get feeling bettr Linds!
