When I found out I was expecting Roo, I knew I wanted to come up with a fun way to announce our pregnancy to our family that included the boys as part of it. I picked up a few supplies and created some fun photo props for our photo shot with a friend and local photographer Trish Beesley Photography. Here are some of the fun & creative ways we came up with to announce a third pregnancy:
Shhhhh it’s a Secret – I purchased 3 white t-shirts, and using powerpoint created the graphics for the iron-on transfers. A quick print and ironing job and these shirts looked amazing to share our secret with our family.
How old are you? – Using small chalkboards write the age of each child on each one and one for how far along you are in the preganacy – You can find them at your local dollar store or office supply store.
Oldest, Middle, Youngest – You can create graphics like this yourself using software like PicMonkey, or if you are like me and would rather someone else do the work you can purchase the electronic personalized signs on Etsy. I took the PDF to my local Staples store and had them print it on card stock and they were the perfect prop to show that our youngest is being promoted to “Middle” child!
We are going to outnumber you! – One of the scariest parts of having a third baby is the thought that Hubs and I are going to be outnumbered. We decided to play that fact up, and using the a dry erase board created this sign for the boys to hold.
To announce our third pregnancy we printed out these photos and gave them out as gifts to our family at a family gathering. Everyone was thrilled to get the news in such a creative way and to have a keepsake to take home with them to show their friends. How did you announce your pregnancy to your family? Did you do anything creative to share the news?
