The timing was perfect for when I was going to tell my sister. I found out on a Tuesday and she was heading back through my town on her road trip Wednesday. I rushed to Target on my lunch break and picked up these cute onesies to give to her. It's hard to keep anything from Michelle and she already had a feeling so I had to lie to her all Tuesday and Wednesday until she got here.
I decided to get a boy version and a girl not to discriminate or jinx myself.
Michelle showered me with little gifts and a book to record my pregnancy memories in. Very cute and thoughtful. Okay back to the plan. So we tried to video with Mom, but her video would NOT work. I mean we tried for about an hour and we were like, come on. We finally decided that since she could see us and we could hear her that it would be good enough. Her reactions usually speak for themselves. We decided we would just try to talk and say hey and we hoped she could read our shirts. Enjoy the video.
We also told my brother in a similar manner, but didn't record it. Very fun. I forgot to add that as soon as we gave my mom the go ahead to tell people, we emailed her the video of the heartbeat and she couldn't figure out how to send it out so she was running around the neighborhood with her laptop showing people. Next up was David's parents. We went out to dinner and brought the new ipad and had them flip through pictures and see if they noticed the picture I showed you on how I told David. It took them a while and they didn't realize what it was. Very funny, I secretly videoed with my phone while they were flipping through the ipad.
