And how are you planning on telling your parents? I'm trying to think of a cute way. I want to get bibs that say "grandma" and "grandpa"...but I'm not sure how to present them lol
Already told my family and in-laws but no friends yet. For me and DH's family, we took a picture of our son holding a bag of tator tots(our nickname for our kids) wearing a cloth diaper!. My nickname growing up was tator, so tator tot is a baby of course. We took a picture of the tator tot bag in the oven with a diaper on (bun in the oven) and made a mr. potato head family. The newest baby had no arms or legs, just eyes. Sounds creepy but it was cute
My inlaws all got it right away, but my family thought we were just being silly and one of them acutally thought DH and I were drunk and being stupid. lol. Anyway, I had to call my sister, and brother to explain it to them.
I told DH by having my DS write a note that said "I'm a big brother" and we stuck the note in the back of the potato head (DH proposed to me this way by hiding the ring in the back of the potato head)
We are telling everyone else by having DS wear a shirt that say's "big brother" and posting the pic on facebook. I'm having a hard time keeping the secret from my friends, but because I don't really feel pregnant yet, I don't want to jinx it by telling the whole world yet.
