I loved the idea of a custom wine label and knew I wanted to incorporate that some way in our news. Go me for actually sticking to this one. Couldn't have been happier with how they turned out.
As much as we wanted to hand them out to all friends and family, we kept it to some family and friends to break the news or enhance the news. I will be more than ready to collect a glass of wine from these babies in a few months.
For our families, we told them Fathers Day weekend. I got my dad a coffee cup saying Grandpa. Wish I caught his face a little bit better. But it was a "really?..." Big grin kind of moment.
And my father in law got a picture frame that said Grandpa. As you can see, big grin, shock.
I really wanted to try to tell as many people as we could in person or over FaceTime at least. But it turned out to be a little harder than expected. We were already at 14 weeks and couldn't hold the news in any longer so we had to compromise with Facetime
One of my favorites, even though I don't have a picture of it was telling my aunt and cousins. I started by saying "So we have some news.." And my cousin screams out, "You're having a baby!" My response, "well, yea we are." Then, telling my one uncle, "I thought so because you are wearing a dress.' Priceless and funny moments!
And for everyone that we couldn't see or Facetime, we were going to send out pregnancy announcement cards. Needless to say, nausea and exhaustion kind of squashed that plan so we just called all family or texted the picture to friends. Very millennial but we loved the photo! And it was of course our social media announcement.
It was so fun to get to see or read every one's reaction to our news! And it made it even more real that we could finally talk about this little babe in my belly.
