Pregnancy Announcement 12th Grandchild

My husband and I are happy to announce that we are pregnant with out third child! For my parents this will be grandchild number 12, so my husband came up with this fun way to share our big news with my parents.

My husband's original idea was to use the chicks and put them in eggs but Valentine's was in full swing and we could only find the bunnies (aka I was to impatient to wait for Valentine's Day to pass before telling my parents). We find out the sex of the baby in a couple of weeks and we plan to let both my husband's and my parents learn the sex of the baby by giving them an Easter egg with the properly colored peep inside.

To make this announcement you can (optionally) paint the egg carton. Then add the properly colored peeps for each child, we added little tags to each peep with the name of the child and left the last unknown yellow peep with the tag "coming soon."

We were able to give the egg carton to my dad and step mom in person, my dad was afraid to open it, he thought something would pop out at him a la snake in a can of peanuts and after opening it he knew it was his grand-kids but we had to point out #12! My mom, unfortunately, lives in a different state so we sent her this photo:

This fun baby announcement can be changed to just one peep in an egg (like what we will be doing when we find out the sex of the baby) or you can do a half dozen egg carton if your baby is number 6!


  1. Congratulations!!! That is so exciting!
