We are wanting to do something special for my MIL about baby

I am pregnant and my Husband and I want to tell his mom in a very special way.
I lost my second baby while we were with my Inlaws so I want to make this a good one.
I have thought of two things and I was wondering what you all thought..
1) a shirt that my son will wear that says on front: I have a Christmas suprise...
On back: I'm gonna be a BIG brother!!!!!!
The other is a poem I would put in a card that says congratulations!!
I can't find the poem but I found it on here. Its about christmas and announcing our second pregnancy. Anyway let me know what you think or if you can come up with something better. Oh as you call assume We are going to announce it on Christmas morning.. YAY!!!!

  • The shirt would be GREAT! Very creative and something she probably wouldn't expect!

  • aww congrats thats wounderful news. I think having your little boy wear the shirt that says he has a surpise hes going to be a big brother is a cute idea. Hope everything goes well and you have a happy healthy pregnancy and baby.
    Happy holidays.

  • Shirt idea is awesome. This is my parents first grandbaby so I actually bought my dad a shirt that says world's greatest Papa and my mom a shirt that says spoilin is grandmas game. Then I had a bib specially made that says I love my grandma and papa!! My inlaws already have a grandson (my stepson) so we just made them a collage of the u/s pics!! I love the shirt idea tho... should of thought of that 30 wks ago.

  • my MIL loves our daughter (coral), so we told everyone that Coral was going to be a big sister... but the T Shirt idea is better!! or make your MIL one that matches your sons, saying, I'm a grandma again!

  • We gave my inlaws both t-shirts that said "expecting grandma" "expecting grandpa". They loved it. I love the t-shirt idea for your son though since it's a second pregnancy.
