Announcing the News

We've now officially told our families!


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.
Onesie for my mom.

The rest of the family we told on Thanksgiving. James' family and my sister and brother-in-law came to visit us. We set up an impromptu family photo to share the news. The video below will explain.



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.
