Kevin and I had fun coming up with a creative way to share the big news with our family. We decided something personal would be extra special and I made onesies for each of our parents out of iron-on screen transfers and singlets from Target. It was a simple and fun way to share the surprise – but I know each member of the family loved their own onesie and is looking forward to a future grandchild to fill it!
At top, we have my step Dad who is excited to bring a ‘Future Trojan’ into the mix (I graduated from USC), my Mom who owns her own martial arts studio loved her ‘Sifu-Ma’ (Sifu is a term in Gung Fu and a play on Grandma) onesie. My Dad was behind the camera and we missed a shot of the ‘Future Traveler’ onesie.
We celebrated the big announcement with my in-laws while at a family graduation. Here is my wonderful mother-in-law with her ‘Future Michelangelo’ onesie (she’s a fabulous artist), and my father-in-law with his Tour de France’ outfit (a big biker).
We also presented them each with a little visual… I created a postcard-sized note in photoshop with an early sonogram image and a description of what was developing at that moment with their little grandchild.
It was a wonderful way to share the good news!

I have some big news to share! Much celebrating has been going on over here at the casa as we finally break ground on the new kitchen, finish up decorating a few of the main rooms in the house… and begin excitedly preparing for Baby S!
Remember a while back during our 3rd anniversary post that I casually mentioned getting ready for the next big surprise in our life? I was trying so hard not to spill the beans… but our big surprise is on it’s way!
Here’s my month-by-month photoshoot of the growing belly (month 2 leaves me looking for a sign of something… anything…) but it wasn’t until month three that the growing grapefruit (actual size, so I read) decided to make a little appearance. We thought it might be fun to chronicle the changes of a nine month adventure and so I purchased this pair of maternity jeans and an extra-stretchy black top early on. Here’s hoping I still fit in them by month nine?? We take photo number four this week!

Have you heard of this little sale that’s buzzing ’round the blogs this week? I just discovered it over at Brooklyn Limestone and love the idea!
Haven’t checked most of these blogs out yet… so I’m on my way to peruse!
PS Thank you for all of the anniversary notes and wedding comments – it made my day (as did the hubby and a wonderful dinner out to one of our favorite *date night locals*).
