Spreading the News Part 2

Just a few hours after the big hospital celebration (see below), GG and Grandpa had a little celebration of their own. We enlisted a little help from their neighbors, who put together this precious picture frame. We had asked them to just get some kind of baby gift and give it to Jason's parents, but they wanted to make it clear exactly who was having this new baby, so they came up with the picture frame idea. We loved it! They wrapped up the frame and took it over to GG & Grandpa's house. I'll let you just enjoy the rest of the pictures. :)

We got an excited phone call shortly after this last one was taken!

So now the news is out and we're glad to be able to talk freely about the new baby. We were more than a little scared that a certain four-year-old might spill the beans before we could pull off all the surprises, but she made us proud and kept our little secret. At least she kept it from the four grandparents. Random people she met on the street--now that was a different story!

It won't be too long before we're posting pictures of the same grandparents holding their new little bundle of joy. That will be even better than a picture frame!


  1. I am so excited for you guys. I loved the way you told your parents.

  2. What fun! I love how you shared the two stories! Y'all are so creative.

  3. That's a super cute way to tell grandparents. I'm going to have to remember that.

    I came to your blog from a comment you posted on the POH blog. I was a guest author.
