how we spread the pregnancy news

On Friday I posted about the different ways that I/we told people about this pregnancy.
With it being the holiday weekend… aka lack of people in blogland, I thought that I would share it again for anyone who may have missed it.
If this is a repeat for you, I'm sorry!

1 | how I told my farmer
First off, I didn't tell him.
My farmer has what is known as diarrhea of the mouth.
When I found out that I was pregnant this go around, we were about to head off on a trip with his family and I didn't really want everyone knowing that early.
So, no one knew.

Nearly two weeks I held this in.
And then, it was time.
I was emotional, and kind of crazy.
And he was going to call me out if I didn't tell him first.

So, I fancied up this little number:
I can't say he was surprised.
But he was definitely excited.

It was fun to do something a little special to tell him too,
since I've just told him the first moment I found out in the past.

2 | how we told friends and family
We waited a month before telling anyone.
And Ryan did surprisingly good at keeping his mouth shut.
I only threatened him a little bit.
And he only managed to tell our banker… and fertilizer salesman by default because he overheard him telling the banker.
Not bad.
I had big plans to tell all of our family and friends together.
It worked out very nicely that we had a big get together for Beckam's birthday.

It went down as follows:
I purchased two big brother shirts for the boys, and a big brother balloon.
The day of the party I packaged it all up in a big box, and taped a picture of the ultrasound onto the balloon string.
After everyone had arrived, and while we were doing a welcome, I said that we were going to let Beckam open just one present because he was so excited.
Everyone was gathered around and it was just perfect.
Here is a video of the actual moment…

3 | how we told the boys
The boys had no idea what was going on when they opened up the present {as you may have noticed}, so I had to pull them aside and tell them.
Brody has been wanting a baby in the family, so naturally he was very excited.
 Beckam could care less. Oreo's are far more interesting.
 Or maybe they both hate the idea?
No, definitely just Beckam. 
 I think he is coming around. 
He doesn't really understand what is going on honestly.

I love hearing about how people spread their pregnancy news…
Did you share in a fun way?
Or have you seen a different way to tell people?
