Oh, you are a very naughty girl…my husband is laughing at my agony…
Yes…yes what? Are you pregnant or adopting another China sweetie?
CONGRATULATIONS…can’t wait for you to spill ALL the beans!!
Something tells me you are having a lot of giggles over this!
February 13, 2009 at 4:46 AM
It isnt one word thursday???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????
February 13, 2009 at 4:50 AM
Details…..where are the details?:-)
Mom Of Many says
February 13, 2009 at 4:56 AM
Okay, the YES is in pink….so it’s a girl?? (If I’m right, I KNEW I should have been a detective, and if i’m not then its a good thing I opted to just be a mom!) Then again, if I am right, becoming a police chaplain, does that count?
You are killin’ me over here and ya’ know that’s not really nice to do to a woman who is post-menopausal and just lived thru a traumatic house fire and living for the last four weeks in a hotel room (where the walls on closing in on us) and with a son depl*yed with the special forces, right?
Come on!! Take some pity – DO TELL!
Yes? Yes, WHAT?!
Ok Stephanie….That is just messed up.
February 13, 2009 at 5:11 AM
Oh my goodness!! Yes…means what?? Can’t wait to hear!? 🙂
February 13, 2009 at 5:13 AM
WHAT?!?!?!? OMG – Please don’t keep us hanging!!!!!
Hugs – Julie
February 13, 2009 at 5:19 AM
ever hear of whisper down the lane?… lol, better go ahead and tell! 🙂 🙂 So far, we have a few pregnancy guesses, adoption guess, I’ll toss one in the ring and say your gerbil had babies?
February 13, 2009 at 5:26 AM
Oh do tell!!!!!!
February 13, 2009 at 5:28 AM
oh my goodness I kept looking at the ‘YES’ and the last time I saw letters that looked like that was on a pregnancy urine test stick. Hurry Hurry! 🙂
February 13, 2009 at 5:53 AM
I hope that you’re planning a “Fill us all in Friday!” Please…tell!!!
February 13, 2009 at 5:56 AM
Girlfriend…I wouldn’t be surprised if you are pregnant. The picture looked like little sperm…Oh my goodness! BUT how would you know so soon it’s a girl?!!! Ok…this is crazy! Either way, you are buying a new van!! Yep, a 15 passenger one…the BIGGIE!! It would be a very sad day if it were just a family pet….after all this. Please..details!!
February 13, 2009 at 6:08 AM
ok I now have wait a few hours come on!! LOL
I bet you will update this when I am asleep and everyone else is awake!
February 13, 2009 at 6:51 AM
I knew you would go to China again! What’s her name?
February 13, 2009 at 12:24 PM
I’m guessing you’re adding a son(in-law)… a young man proposed and Tori said Yes????
February 13, 2009 at 12:34 PM
This is amazing, agonizing and too fun! We await your reply!Charlene
Sue Mom of Two says
Nope….it’s pink so it can’t be a son-in-law. I’m thinking another China doll.
You are SO naughty, keeping us in suspense like this…..dangling a carrot every night.
February 13, 2009 at 12:35 PM
This is just a little cruel, I think I looked at your blog 50 times yesterday. Looks like I will be a slave to the refresh button again today. 🙂
I am so excited to hear your news, whatever it is I am sure it is wonderful, suspense is sufficiently built!
February 13, 2009 at 12:38 PM
Oh the agony of having to wait!!! It’s amazing how much torture this really is!! Whatever it is, I’m sure there is celebration at your house!
Mom to five says
February 13, 2009 at 12:53 PM
OK, My guess is it’s a girl. From China. And you are using CHFS. Am I right?? I hope it’s the sweety I have had my eye on but couldn’t get an answer from them…..
Rebecca of "China, Baby!" says
February 13, 2009 at 12:58 PM
You are havin’ way too much fun with this, aren’t you. 🙂
Nicole A. says
February 13, 2009 at 1:05 PM
Ugh, the agony! OK, it’s definitely a girl (pink lettering!), and I’m going to be oh-so-disappointed if it’s a dog, horse, or other pet. 🙂
My guess is that it is a daughter from China, maybe an older child this time?
Really, do tell … just a little more!?! OK, a lot more would be even better. 🙂
Have a great Friday (torturing all of us nosy bloggers)!
All the best,Nicole A. in OH
February 13, 2009 at 1:06 PM
You are all kinds of CRAZY!!!But it’s definitely the best kind of crazy. Take that bull by the horns!You guys ROCK!!!Talk about walkin’ the walk!I so wanna be like you!!!!
February 13, 2009 at 1:21 PM
OK – I’m about to give birth any day now and I REALLY don’t want to be asking my husband to refresh the Ni Hao Y’all site while I’m pushing just so I can find out this news. You have to give more details today so I can relax!! 🙂
February 13, 2009 at 1:28 PM
CONGRATULATIONS!!! That particular YES, in that color…can only mean one thing!
Woman…where do you get your ENERGY??
February 13, 2009 at 2:10 PM
ok, that YES you have pictured looks like a pregnancy test color as it’s sort of pale pink.So my guess is you are pregnant.
Please tell us soon!
February 13, 2009 at 2:18 PM
Okay, still full of anticipation and on the edge of my seat here…
February 13, 2009 at 2:19 PM
too funny! praise the Lord!
and shannon’s comment about refreshing yor site while giving birth was hilarious!
Mom to my China Posse says
February 13, 2009 at 2:20 PM
you have our attention! Congratulations to whatever your annoucement is! I will have to say though that 7 is my limit! you amaze me!
February 13, 2009 at 2:23 PM
Ok…so you are sitting back right now with your hubby giggling away….not funny!!!
You had better give it up soon so we all don’t go crazy and wear out our keyboard from all that refereshing!! Can’t you hear all that clicking??
Global Girl says
February 13, 2009 at 2:31 PM
Say whaaat? 🙂
February 13, 2009 at 2:34 PM
I wonder if your No Hands But Ours site is just too much for you–all of that special needs adoption happiness staring you in the face everyday. It can make a person do CRAZY things! Crazy in a good way!
Can’t wait to hear the details!
February 13, 2009 at 2:40 PM
congratulations!!! I can’t wait to hear more: another club foot? Heart? Cleft? Come on!!
February 13, 2009 at 2:48 PM
You’ve bought a little puppy dog??? And laughing your head off with all these comments…..???
February 13, 2009 at 3:13 PM
Are you trying to torture us? What kind of post is that? Do tell my friend! I’m going with Anonymous on this one…did Tori say yes to a prince charming maybe????
Shannon of "Room for More" says
February 13, 2009 at 3:44 PM
I’m with Rebecca, you are having way too much fun with this. The only thing is Rebecca knows, and we DON’T!! Whether you are pregnant or your are adopting again, I am excited your family is growing! Maybe you can give us 2 words next time, ha! ; )
February 13, 2009 at 4:16 PM
Now we deserve an answer. Girl or boy from China???? Bun in the oven? Choosing another country? Victoria getting married? There are so many questions to go with just one answer. SPILL SPILL SPILL
February 13, 2009 at 4:19 PM
Congratulations Stef!!!!!!!!!!! Can’t wait to hear all about HER!!
The Gang's Momma says
February 13, 2009 at 4:26 PM
This is all wrong. Just so wrong. It’s just wrong. You should be ashamed of yourself, keeping the blogosphere in utter suspense and anticipation. Please, put our agony to rest. Spill. It. Now.
February 13, 2009 at 4:40 PM
So, how many hits you gettin’ today girlfriend??? Maybe in the neighborhood of 3, 4 thousand??
Refresh, refresh, refresh…
February 13, 2009 at 4:43 PM
That’s just not nice. 🙂
I’m just glad I wasn’t able to check blogs yesterday- that’s 24 hours less suspense for me…..can’t wait to hear. I couldn’t even HAZARD a guess!!!!
February 13, 2009 at 4:46 PM
Hmmm…9 ballons…a big PINK YES…I have my suspicions…
You are one sneaky girl, aren’t you?! lol!
You are NOT going to make us wait ALL. WEEKEND. LONG….are you???!!!
February 13, 2009 at 5:07 PM
I think we are going to have to pressure Rebecca into talkin’. Now…do you really want to do that to her?!?!
February 13, 2009 at 5:44 PM
Are you kidding me? I was expecting to get on here today to see some big announcement and still, you are teasing us. Do you have any idea the agony you are putting us through. I cannot wait to see where HE is leading you.
Chris and Deb says

February 13, 2009 at 6:04 PM

February 13, 2009 at 7:07 PM
In the words of the immortal Ricky Ricardo, “Lucy, you got some ‘splaining to do…” Come ON!!! You have to know the suspense is killing us.

February 13, 2009 at 10:08 PM

February 13, 2009 at 10:41 PM
This isn’t fair!!! Do tell! OK, since it is pink, you must be giving us a hint! It’s a GIRL!?! And you could not know this already could you if this blessing was in your womb?!? Or at least you don’t look that far along??? We’re going crazy here! Not that it is any of our business but you are teasing us!

February 13, 2009 at 11:27 PM
Yep, I’m with Jenn. If you could tell us WHEN you are going to tell us what in the world this all means I could go back to normal life, stop neglecting my children and hitting refresh every 15 minutes. Just kidding…well part of it I’m kidding about…COME ON SISTER!
February 13, 2009 at 11:49 PM
February 14, 2009 at 12:10 AM
