I had onsies printed with I <3 My Grandma, I <3 My Grandpa etc, and wrapped them up to give to the grandparents to announce it. For my siblings I just took them out to breakfast and showed them the ultrasound pics. For Darling Husband I had a surprise planned but totally blew it at the time because my BFP was so un-anticipated.

I would love to hear how people surprised their DH’s… my hubby had me totally flabbergasted when he proposed (and it was the most beautiful proposal/idea/craziest day ever) that i feel the need to REALLY surprise him in a fun and exciting way!!!

What did my fellow Bee’s do to announce to their DH’s/SO’s?

pinterest has cute pics of photo announcements.

i saw one where dad was holding hand of first kid and in other hand a chalkboard written w/”2″ and the mom was holding chalkboard w/ “2”, as well. then the graphic artist did a plus sign in between and “=4”

@PrncssDva:  no.

dad + their first kid = 2

mom + baby in tummy = 2

@PrncssDva:  I love this idea and have thought of it before.  Only one problem:  my Darling Husband wrote a song that had the proposal in it, and then recorded it and tricked me into listening to this “indy group that you probably haven’t heard of.”  I’m not I’m talented enough at song writing to come up with a “You’re going to be a daddy” song that would equal “So marry me, my green-eyed beauty, and be my bride.”  Best proposal ever though, so i totally want an amazing way to tell him when the time comes for us to be Parentsville.

I have a ton lol so here goes…..

The grandparents:

I have onsies that say “Grandpas Helper” “I Love Grandma” I am going to wrap them up with magnets that say “Grandpa to be” and “Grandma to be”. I am also writting a little poem to put in also.

The Aunts:

I have “My Aunt Rocks” onsies and “Aunt to be” magnets that I made. They both live out of state so I am sending them in the mail with a little poem.

Our other children:

I have a gift for each of them. Our 3 boys will have customized big brother shirts and our daughter is getting a purse that says big sister to be. I think we are going to decorate the house like a baby shower before they get home from school and then give them the gifts.

For my Dh:

I made a mailbox that I will put my BFP and onsie that says “I Love Daddy” in it. I’m going to set it next to the night stand before he goes to put his pjs on at night.

Here are some of my projects so far (I’m not pregnant but we are TTC and I am trying to stay positive doing these things helps me get threw the waiting)

Grandma and Aunt Magnets

And the mailbox for Darling Husband

We are getting photos done on Saturday and I am going to get a photo taken with S behind me holding a “baby on board” sign up to my stomach. Then for my moms bday in Feb we are going to give her all of the photos and the last one in the pile will be that one.

And I am going to mail each of my sisters a ittle box with a soother in it and a tag that says congrats auntie!
