Sunday one of my new, but close friends told me she and her husband are expecting their first. Obviously, DH and I are very excited for them! Monday I had a voicemail from my best friend that said her test came back positive and she and her husband are expecting their first!
Again, I was VERY excited because they've been trying for a few years with no luck.
I really want to do something special for each of them. They are only about 6-7 weeks along so we don't know what the babies will be yet, we just know they'll be loved (okay, probably spoiled!)
Any ideas on something I can do to honor this momentous occasion?
One of the husbands is calling it their little jelly bean, so I am making a card with a picture of jelly beans on the front. Inside it says "Congrats on your little jelly bean!" I plan on getting them a package of Jelly Bellies to go along.
I'm not sure about the other one, though. Candy would not go over well (very health conscious). Her nursery fabric (bought 2 years ago...if that tells you how long we've been waiting for this!!!) has bright colors and animals. I think I'm going to do a monkey pic on the front of the card (a cute cartoon monkey) and get something for the nursery maybe. Any ideas on that?
I'd also like to have lunch with them or something, but don't have any real ideas. I would rather have them to my home, but we close on our new house Monday and I don't know how long it will be before I'm prepared to have someone over.
Thanks in advance for all the ideas. I love this board and now I actually have a reason to visit! Yay!!!!
