oh hey, friday | how we spilled the pregnancy beans

In case you missed my post yesterday, I'm pregnant!!!!
Woot woot!
I will spare you guys from a dozen pictures of me today though, and instead share some other fun things from the pregnancy so far.

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.

4 | how we told our friends
I wish I could have come up with a creative way to tell our friends far away.
But, I didn't.
Lame, I know.
And since this is our last babe, there will be no next time. Oops.
Tell me, did you use a creative way to tell friends or family that you were pregnant!?

5 | hop on board the pregnancy train
What better way to celebrate this little babe than an ad sale!

  2. Congratulations! The way you told everyone was so cute and creative!

  3. Oh my goodness...that is the most precious "thank you" card ever! So adorable that you were able to share with him that way. Love the big brother shirt idea too. When I got pregnant with my last my Bigs were 14 and 11....I literally had taken the pregnancy test and it was laying on the bathroom counter and my 11 year old went to get something and came to the kitchen and was like "really? are you kidding me? how could you let this happen again?" haha

  4. Congratulations!!!

  5. I am so glad you posted about the different ways you told! I clearly don't have a child yet but I love reading about others and how you told is just so special. Thanks for letting us follow along on this process!


  6. I love the way you told everyone!

  7. Wow I just caught up on your exciting news - congrats to you and your family!
