Thank you so much for all of your lovely comments, well wishes and congratulations yesterday. We are feeling so blessed. I wanted to stop in today and share how we told our family we were expecting our second baby.
It’s nothing particularly original, but we knew we had to share the news with our family starting with the new big brother. Bodhi is the light of everyone’s lives so we knew that would be the best approach.
Of course, they all loved this! We actually had Bodhi take printed photos of the above to our parents. We put in one regular photo to throw them off a bit, and it definitely did. But they got it pretty quickly this time around.
We also sent these photos to my grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins (I’m very close with almost all of my cousins) and our close friends.
A few of you have asked about Bodhi. Bodhi is really excited but doesn’t fully understand the timing aspect. He keeps asking when the baby will be coming out. “Is it time yet, mommy?” He is obsessed with two of my close friends’ babies and asks about “my baby” often. He calls it “my baby” as in “his baby.” He will be almost exactly three years and one month when baby arrives depending on the timing of our new little one’s birthday.
You can see our baby announcement here. Also, feel free to check out our announcement for Bodhi and how we told our families with Bodhi. The video of my mom is hilarious (but the room at our old house is a bit embarrassing). :)
Stay warm today! Cheers!
