Ideas to pop the news?

Hi ladies my husband and I are trying to conceive our 3rd and final child. With the last 2 children he knew when or before I knew so this time I am going to try to find out then "pop" the news myself and with our 2 girls. Any creative ideas? I already have a "I'm a Big sister" t-shirt for our youngest so she can hint daddy but what else before or during until he notices the shirt? Any restaurant ideas or something?

  • -Make a loaf of bread and wrap a ribbon around it with a little card saying "ther's a bun in the oven."

    -Have a "baby" themed dinner. Baby carrots, Baby peas, etc.

    -Give him a grocery list of a couple of item and put New Born Diapers on it. Have him take the girls with him in their shirts. Give him the list in the way out the door and wait for the phone call/
