Baby #2 announcment to Grandparents

What are your thoughts for announcing baby #2 to the grandparents on their 35th wedding anniversary through a photobook that me and my siblings will be giving them? My thought was to have several other photos of me/my family and then, last have a photo of my 1 year old in a t-shirt that says "Big Brother" with me and hubby in the background and a photo below that with each of our footprints in the sand with a + inbetween with a ? mark at the end (hubby + me + DS + ?)

I think it could be cute and great timing...I'll only be 8 weeks pregnant, but I can't keep secrets like these very well!

That sounds like a great way to do it! I think they will love it.

That's such a cute idea. I also liked some of these baby announcement ideas, especially this cute little boy to-be big brother in check shirt holding sign "Mama's due ....."

Re: Baby #2 announcment to Grandparents

Oh! I did something very similar with DD. I made my parents a photo book of their lives. It went through them dating, getting married, having kids, kids getting married, having grandkids, and the last page announced our pregnancy. It was awesome. I'm still so proud of it. Let me see if I can still link it...

ETA: Here's a link to the book that I did. I'm pretty sure you have to have a Snapfish account and be logged in to view.

My sister just announced a pregnancy with a pic of her son that said "only child, expiring March 2014." I thought it was super cute and original.

That was super cute! Thanks for sharing!! If the photobook is just photos of my parents, then I will probably send them some photos announcing the pregnancy since I live 2000 miles from them
