Pregnancy Week by Week: Week 11

This week was especially exciting because we shared the news that we were expecting with family! Mr. Fix-It's family was gathered for Easter so we decided it was perfect timing. Here's how we did it:

I had a onesie custom made a few weeks prior. We wrapped it in a gift bag and decided we were going to ask a family member to open it. Mr. Fix-It suggested it be his grandmother, though we were a little unsure she would "get it". We decided to hope for the best.

Soon after we arrived, we noticed everyone was gathered in the living room eating hors d'oeuvres. We realized we had found our moment. Mr. Fix-It grabbed the gift bag and I told the group, "We have something that we want Grandma to open, but we think everyone is going to be really excited about it." Grandma begin to lift the tissue paper and quickly said, "No! Oh my god!" in disbelief, and then started crying. We were so thrilled she knew what it was right away! Of course, everyone else was still guessing so the moment dragged out for a while. It was great! Then, she held up the onesie and everyone began to realize our announcement. We were met with lots of "Congratulations!", clapping, and jumping up and down. It was the best, most excited reaction, and it was so wonderful to finally share our news!

The following weekend we were traveling to Providence where we would get to share the news of baby with my side. Things were really getting fun!

P.S. The onesie is a soft green. Not blue! We're not finding out. More on that later!


  1. Aw, what a sweet way to tell everyone! I love it!
