ETA: Added Final! --Opinions Needed-Announcement Picture ideas(PiP)

ETA: Here is the final product! You can't see the 1 on my husband's birthdate, so I may mess with that more...My son had a blast helping me find rocks on the beach and tired himself out for naptime, an added bonus to the day :)

image 

So my last pregnancy ended in a MMC and I had announced at 9 weeks with a picture of my son in a Big Brother shirt with the ultrasound, pretty basic but adorable. I want to so something different this time, we are waiting until after our 12.5 week appt on Wednesday to announce.

So keep in mind that my screen name having Feet in it is because we are the FEET family...yes interesting last name...but always sort of fun with baby feet ideas.

So my first idea I copied from pinterest, a picture of our shoes. I made this picture a few weeks ago in anticipation, but then found some other ideas.

image

Then I found this craft idea and so I painted hearts yesterday and made this with my families names and on the last heart I put "t.b.d 8.19.13" and thought of taking a pic of this to announce and see if people catch on...

image

And then I saw this idea I had pinned a million years ago and fell in love with it this morning- making this Feet Family of rocks and then adding a note in about baby coming somehow

image

So what does everyone vote for? Smile I can not decide!

  • I like the first one so cute!!!
  • I've seen the shoe idea and I've always loved it! I also love the rock feet, maybe you could write each persons name on the sole of each pair of feet and put the due date on the littlest pair.

     See this is how I was starting to feel- like everyone has seen the shoe thing now...

    The rocks may be a bit fresher and since we are the FEET family it just makes sense for us too, feeling like I am leaning in that direction, but now I need to go gather rocks!! haha

  • Love love love the first one with all of your shoes! So cute and unique to your family bc they are your own shoes!
  • They are all cute, but the rock feet are so adorable. I liked someone else's idea of writing your names on the rock feet.

  • The shoe idea is super cute, although so many people use it that I probably wouldn't. The rock feet is adorable and I've never seen it before. I would definitely go for that one. Either way you're announcement is going to be sweet!

  • Love the rocks!
  • Thanks for the votes!

    I went to the beach this morning and gathered myself my very own rocks-it helps that I live near the puget sound. Now I just need to decide how to write the names/birthdays on them--thinking maybe a permananet marker?

    I will post a picture when I am all done :)

  • #1 Your final product is so darn cute - I absolutely love it!

    #2  So jealous that you live by a beach and can go strolling for rocks on a moment's notice.

  • The rock feet are the cutest thing I have ever seen!!

    I must have really uncreative FB friends because I have only seen about 3-4 cute announcements before.
