Having a baby is a momentous occasion, whether it’s your very first child or the next of several in your growing family. There are many ways to share your exciting news with someone special, whether it’s the future father, grandparent or a close friend. Announcing a pregnancy can be part of the celebration. Here are three creative ways to tell a loved one there’s a baby on the way!
Give a Special Keepsake to Mark the Occasion
Pregnancy is a special time that’s full of anticipation and excitement, and can be a very fond memory in the life of your new child. Help your loved ones remember the special time before the birth by giving them a keepsake willow tree angel or a framed sonogram picture that they can keep for years to come. You’ll enjoy the surprise of watching them open the gift and they’ll enjoy the reminder in their home.
Wear a New Shirt That Spills the Beans
Pick out a cute t-shirt that announces your news in a cryptic fashion, then wait for the reaction when your friends and family put the pieces together. A cute photo of a stork is a stylish yet subtle nod to your new little one. If you already have a child, dress them in a big brother or big sister shirt to share the news about your growing family.
Set the Table With an Extra Seat for Your New Addition
A cute way to share that you’re expecting is to announce the news at a special dinner. Set the table with a bib and a jar of baby food at an empty chair at your table. This is a great surprise whether it’s dinner for two or with a whole group.
Pregnancy is full of ups and downs, so make the most of every exciting moment. You’ll have wonderful memories to look back on when you announce your new baby in an extra special way.
