I told my mom and best friend, Lauren, the day we found out. We were all in Massachusetts for Lauren's wedding and since I wanted to be able to tell them in person, I decided to share the news immediately. James and I ran out to Babies R Us at 8 am (yay for extended holiday hours!) and packaged up some onesies to give to Lauren and my mom.

For my dad and sister, I made shirts for each of them that I mailed out. I made sure I was on the phone when they opened them. My dad's just said "Grandpapa" and Alicyn's had a picture of a fortune cookie that said "You will soon become an aunt". I forgot to take pictures, because, well, I suck.
Overall, the generally reaction was first shock, then excitement, kinda like us. We are all looking forward to meeting that little bean that is currently making Mommy so tired.
