Yes, I remember and at the time it was just a funny drawing, no meaning? Do you have news to share?Trish in NC
February 12, 2009 at 1:27 AM
I’m with Trish. Any meaning to that ninth “balloon”? 😉
February 12, 2009 at 1:32 AM
I think/hope I know where this is going????
February 12, 2009 at 1:50 AM
And this means???
Oh my. If it’s what I think it means, WOW!!!
Can’t wait to hear more!
What an amazingly patient mom. I don’t have those same genes…..not always anyhow. 🙂

Long time reader….and I remember how it meant NOTHING at the original time it was posted. Now, I can’t wait…what does it mean this time?!?

Oh my! The second I saw this the first time around I was like, “Yippee Jesus – you’re going for 9 but THEN you broke my little heart with your announcement that it was comical to you cause it looked like sperm…” (LOL)…but now you must be making the announcement – and we, over here in our hotel room in CO are tickled pink or blue?? Do tell!! And we will pray you all home again- naturally!! xo

Yes, it must be #9!?! I remember the first post (I did not get the significance of the number that so many others saw; I saw sperm, too! Not that you needed to know that …) Anyway, really, really, really … going back for another sweet kiddo?!
All the best,Nicole A. in OH
February 12, 2009 at 2:53 AM
Wow!!! I can’t wait to hear. Nine balloons must be significant.
February 12, 2009 at 3:11 AM
Please, please, please tell soon! I’m with everyone else…I think that the number 9 has meaning now!!
February 12, 2009 at 3:12 AM
Okay, I’m on the edge of my seat….
February 12, 2009 at 3:15 AM
Get OUT!!!! Okay…you’d HAVE to know we would all think this!! Have things changed since Oct. ’08!?!? I can’t wait to find out what this means!! If it’s not what we are all thinking…maybe you are going to be adding a “child” through marriage? Like maybe Tori getting married? That’s my 2nd guess. :o)

February 12, 2009 at 2:20 PM
I’m going to guess some important person in your life, maybe you haven’t met them yet, is 9 yrs old or $900 or $9000 was raised for adoption purposes. I’m in suspense, so please hurry and tell us!
February 12, 2009 at 2:24 PM
OK…sometimes 9 ballons are just 9 ballons…at least that’s what it was back then, right??
Hmmmm…whatcha got up your sleeve NOW, girl???

February 12, 2009 at 7:50 PM
Okay…I’m trying to be patient. You know…just because we have all survived the wait of an adoption doesn’t mean we are any better at waitng. Put us out of our misery 🙂
