  • We took my parents out to eat at their favorite Chinese restaurant and after dinner I had the waitress bring them the special fortune cookies that I prepared with the fortune that said "A grandchild is in your future!" They were so excited!

    Of course, my in laws were supposed to be with us but they decided at the last minute that they didn't want to go to a Chinese restaurant they wanted to eat at a "regular" restaurant. So, the next day we took them to Cracker Barrel and gave them the fortune cookies there. They have always been a pain like that.

  • With my first I wrapped a new burp rag and receiving blanket and gave it to my Mom as a present. She opened it looks at it pulls it out, and asks me "what's this supposed to be for?" I say back, What else would you need a burp rag and baby receiving blanket for Mom?" She was SOO happy she cried.

  • w/ my 1st pregnancy we just called everyone right away and told them. The 2nd time we had our daughter wear a shirt that said "big sister" & we took a picture of it and mailed it to all of our family members so then when they got it they called and told us how excited they were.
