Unique Ways to Announce a Pregnancy

Hi all!  Hope you're all doing well.  

Typically I don't post about my personal life on the blog, unless it pertains to organizing, creating, decorating or some crafty thing.  My news today does to some degree, because soon I'll have to re-do and re-decorate a few of our rooms.  

Because guess what?  We're having a baby!

Yep, it's true. I'm pregnant! A little one will be joining our family in March! We are excited and a wee bit nervous for the changes that a new little one will bring to our home.  

We've been out of the baby stage for 5 1/2 years now, so it'll be interesting to go back to it.

I wanted a fun and unique way to announce my pregnancy to family and friends, so I did a bunch of web surfing to find a little inspiration. There are so many adorable ideas out there!!

After scrolling through the web and finding lots of inspiration, this is how my husband and I decided to announce the news to our boys and then to our family and friends:

First we took our boys for a little ride. We told them that we were going somewhere to take their photos (I do that often, so that wasn't anything new to them.)

We found our "photo spot",  lined the boys up and while I had the camera in hand, daddy passed out a piece of paper to each of the boys with the news typed on the pages.  They just had to put it all together.

This was their first reaction to putting it all together:
 Look at their faces, each one with a different first reaction.
and then it went to this:

Jumping for joy! Excited! A little shocked! and the youngest one is trying to figure out what's going on.  (I'm so bummed that this photo is so blurry!  Guess I couldn't stay still either.)

The next day I sent this to our immediate family:
 and posted this photo on my personal Facebook page to tell the rest of my family and friends.

It was fun to announce my pregnancy like this.  It was also fun trying to decide on how exactly to do so.

Here's a post from Happy Home Fairy with more unique ways to announce your news:
This is an awesome post on 30 Creative Ways to Announce Pregnancy
 
So if you're expecting and you're not sure how to announce it, I hope this post gives you some ideas.  

For me, now I get to go and search for inspiration on unique ways to announce baby's gender.  Just a few more weeks before I know if ours is another boy or a little girl.  And YES, I will let you all know.

May you be a little inspired!
Until next time,
DaNita

  2. Congrats! Great ideas there. With our first I sent flowers to my mom at work that said, I'm looking forward to meeting you in January of 2009. Everyone at school figured it out before she did. haha. Then with the second I let our first born wear a shirt that said I know something you don't know on the front, and on the back it said, I'm going to be a big brother. With the next one, I lined up all of our church shoes hubby, mine, the two we had, and a pair of baby shoes that had belonged to my husband as a newborn, and said we are growing by 2 more feet. We aren't quiet ready to have another but, I'm ALWAYS looking for fun ideas...

  8. How fun! Congratulations on your newest blessing. Our last baby was born when our previous "baby" was 4 1/2. We have 11 children (10 biological), most of which are 2 years or less apart. I would say, "As long as they coming before I give up the diaper bag, we'll be fine!" But then, when I truly thought we were finished (and had, in fact, settled into my role as "grandma"), we discovered we were expecting AGAIN! That baby boy just turned 4 and he is such a wonderful blessing to our family!
