One of the best parts of pregnancy so far has been telling our friends and families. I wanted to do something special for everyone to tell them this extra special news. After Stephen returned home from his fishing trip we invited his family over for dinner. Little did they know that the napkins at their place settings were actually onesie’s that said “WE ARE PREGNANT!”. Stephen and I have 2 nieces and 2 nephews as well (a boy and a girl on his side, and a boy and a girl on my side), and for each child I made them a t shirt that said “Cousin to Be”
Stephen and I live about 5 hours away from my family in Pennsylvania. It just happened to work out that the weekend after we found out we were expecting my parents were moving my brother into an apartment in Connecticut for a summer internship and I had agreed to take a half day from work and help with the process. Little did they know they would be getting an awesome surprise!
Needless to say, my parents and brother were thrilled when we told them the news. Unfortunately, I have no pictures from that weekend!!
Since my sister lives 3 hours away, I shipped the t shirts for her two children. Anyone who knows me knows that I am not the best at keeping secrets. So when the shipment of the t shirts was delayed I ended up telling her before they arrived! The shirts finally made their way to Pennsylvania about 2 hours after I told her about the pregnancy. I am so impatient.
