We wanted to tell our families about the boy in person, so we waited 2 weeks before telling my family and 4 before telling the in laws on Easter! No, I didn’t even tell my mom early. Glutton for punishment, I tell you!
Anyhow, since we were telling everyone right before and on Easter, we went with an Easter theme.
I made these little paper mache eggs from Not Martha. I started on the egg ‘shells’ a few weeks prior to our ultrasound, making some in pink and some in blue. After the ultrasound, I stuffed them with blue grass and a baby chick revealing the gender. I made a pull tag that read ‘Our baby chick is a…’ and the chick in the egg read ‘BOY!’
Look, it’s a mom, dad and baby! 😀
Looking back, it would’ve been much easier just to buy plastic eggs (I made nearly 20 eggs and had about 15 hours in making these suckers!), but I don’t do things the easy way. ha. And it was honestly good to have something to keep my hands and mind busy while I was impatiently waiting on our appointment and then while waiting to tell our families.
