  • Invite them over for dinner, and for dessert bring out a cake decorated with baby things, or serve cupcakes decorated with little candy booties or babies- you can find decorations in a card shop among other places.

  • Is there a birthday coming up in the family? i.e. If your mom's birthday is coming up...get her a birthday card from the baby.

  • I had my 2 year old wear a T-shirt that said "I'm abig brother" and we made sure everyone we knew read his shirt. He loved the attention and I loved learning who actually pays attention to my son and who just pats his head and looks away. They were certainly embarrassed when everyone else got the "clue" and they had no idea what was going on! LOL!

  • I didn't tell my dad until I found out what I was having and I got him a card that said "You have a new granddaughter" or something like that.
