It’s almost time to announce the sex of our 2nd baby! We find out on Monday and are still debating how to break the fun news to our family and friends. For our first child, Bryce, we announced using the frosting inside the cake at the Baby Shower. So what should we do this time?
Idea #1: My husband thought of making marshmallows, coloring them the color related to the sex, and then covering them with chocolate. But do we want to do the food thing again?
Idea #2: I’m seeing more people use balloons to announce the news. Using a black balloon with colored confetti representing the sex inside, pop the balloon, and see which color flies out. This may be fun for us to do with each group of family members over Skype too. But then again, our Skype is usually fuzzy and noone would be able to really see the color until we take a piece and hold it close to the webcam.
Idea #3: Creating a puzzle. Our friends experienced getting a puzzle to do to find out the sex of their friend’s baby. They said it was so cute and the puzzle had a sweet poem on it about a girl as opposed to just saying “It’s A Girl” so that added another fun element.
Idea #4: Sending a picture of Bryce holding up a sign or something related to having a Brother or a Sister. Mailing the picture to all our family and friends and wait for the fun phone calls of excitement to come in several days later.
Idea #5: Just jump on Skype and tell everyone the news right away.
