Best moment this week: We had our first ultrasound on Wednesday, November 24th.  It was amazing to see that there was an actual baby in there!  Once we had our ultrasound, we were excited to share with our families.  We told Doug and Patti on Thursday, November 25th, while sharing what we’re thankful for prior to the Thanksgiving meal.  We shared the news with Grandma Roberts on Saturday, November 27th (her birthday), by signing her birthday card – Dustin, Dania, and Baby Miller.  On our way home from White Salmon, we stopped by to see Grammy and told her in person.  We asked told her that we’d love for her to make us a quilt for our Christmas present, but that we wouldn’t need it until June, and that we couldn’t tell her if it was going to be pink or blue yet.  Finally, we told Chester, Diana, and Jonathan on Sunday, November 28th.  We drove up to Bellingham to give Chester his birthday present (an ultrasound picture wrapped up in a gift box).  Everyone is so excited!
