I love your ideas!  I found a blue, “big brother” baby tee for our dog and pinned an announcement sign to it after I put it on him with one of those oversized diaper pins. 

Congratulations!!!

I guess I don’t understand the concept of giving them a onesie for your baby?  Are they supposed to give it back to you later?  Maybe I’m out of the loop on baby things.

Other than that it’s very cute.

@Mrs Hedgehog:  I don’t really understand the concept of getting a gift for someone, giving it to them, just to take it back. Instead of doing the onesies, why wouldn’t you just make t-shirts for the adults to have? Or get them something nice and meaningful, that they can then keep as a remembrance of when they found out they’d be aunts/uncles? I really like the willow tree figurines though.

Mother-In-Law sent us the Willow Tree pregnant couple soon after we announced our pregnancy and even though I am not into collectibles, I really do cherish it. Good luck!

@Mrs Hedgehog:  What about just a card? Or a mug? You could get mugs made with the picture of your first scan on it, saying something like “Hi Aunty —-!”. I like the onesie idea to give to a husband, but I don’t think it really works for anyone else. I’m going to go google some stuff…

I second a mug. Or a picture frame. I just think it would be odd to be gifted a onesie and then have to give it back or know that I would get to use it when I babysit.

Do they know that you are pregnant yet? If not, you might like this idea:

Someone I know posed for a picture with her parents. Her husband (who was taking the pic) said “Sayyyy Jenna’s pregnant!” instead of saying “Saaayyy cheese!” and snapped pics. They captured looks of surprise/shock/joy from each of their family members (they did it to his parents, siblings, friends etc.). After all the pics were done, they made a book for themselves and gave a pic to each family member to remember the moment they found out. It really was so sweet!

I think your ideas are great and I think they will all love them. It isn’t weird to give them a onesie or anything for the baby. I think they’ll be thrilled and appreciate your thoughtfulness and realize how excited you are!

If you’re really worried about your sisters, you could always get them T shirts made saying something like ‘The Aunt’  and ‘The Other Aunt’ or “I’m going to be an Aunt!’ lol Not very creative, but I’m sure you could come up with something better. 🙂

I like the willow tree figurines, but they aren’t for everyone.  I was given this as a wedding gift from my first marriage.  I loved it, but luckily I didn’t have a kid with my ex. 

 

 

It’s a mother and child figurine from an artist in Mississippe.
