How did you tell?

For some folks just saying "I'm pregnant!" is enough.
For me, not so much.
I chose to tell my hubby with a little more panache... I mean... there are only a limited amount of times you get to do this in your WHOLE life.
With Eli, we had a date planned at Dukes in Huntington (one of our favorite local places). I snuck away from work during the day and gave them our wedding champagne glasses. One was filled with pink baby booties, the other with blue.
When we ordered our drinks they served us these instead...
Hot Hubby thought it meant we were having twins.
With Cora Jane, I ironed on this little phrase to one of Eli's onsies (he was only 7 months old!) then put a jacket on him.
When Hot Hubby got home from work I asked him to take off the jacket. At first he thought it was a hand-me-down. Confused, he looked at me and I handed him a new book for Eli titled "I'm a big brother."







With this one (YES, this one!!!), Hot Hubby took them to their usual Saturday morning Starbucks Daddy Date...
While I prepared a fun, VERY late Father's Day Scavenger Hunt. (Our friends gifted us with an awesome mountain bike... something I had wanted to give Hot Hubby on Father's Day but we just didn't have the moo-la.)













The final prize was signed...

Blessing #3 will pop into earth in July!! I've just finished the 1st trimester.
As far as pregnancy symptoms go... (if you get sick while you are With Child don't read on!)
I get a bit tired and my boobs get larger than life!
That's it.

NO WAY! Congrats!! Too funny b/c just last Sunday when the girls were passing out my shower invites a couple people thought it was for YOU (getting our names confused as usual!) & you really ARE preggo!!! Hooray! You guys make beautiful babies, can't wait to meet this one!

I was very boring in telling my hubby...at 6:30am when I was freaking out. Maybe for #2 I'll be a little more creative and not in such a state of shock :)
