That's pretty cool. I'd never heard of that before.

www.adorkable.me

he loved it and got it right away, we have been having a wonderful time around here, now i get to work on the other main folks.

i'm thinking i need to do something with the cool info that both my mom and my growing child will be Metal Tigers in the Chinese Zodiac! my mom and I are both tigers and have always bonded about that. She absolutely loves tigers.
Wow, that is so sweet!

Also, Jan 2011 is a tiger year? I am a tiger too! Very neat!

I've never heard that before! How cool! My DS loves to do that lol


ETA: As for us telling, my parents are going to be in town near fathers day and we were thinking I would pee on a digi and wrap it up in a box along with the first u/s pic and give it as an early fathers day/ late mothers day gift addressed to both of them. Hopefully we see DHs mom and her husband soon enough to do it in person as well. His dad lives in Calgary so we will tell him over the phone (not for a while... he was the only one we told about our last pregnancy before we found out I was having a m/c. I don't want to do that to him again, just in case). Extended family will probably find out through the gossip mills that are our mothers, haha

I've never heard of that! Very interesting, and such a cool way to share the news!
