Leading up to Cadence: Announcements

When a baby is on the way, there are people to tell, announcements to be made.
Here are a few of the ways we let the people we love know that something special was coming.

"One, two, three! Say, 'Joy's PREGNANT!!'"

On April Fools Day, this went up on facebook. No one thought it was a joke!

During our anatomy scan we asked the doctor the write the gender on a notecard and seal the envelope. We then gave the envelope to my aunt who baked a cake for my grandfather's birthday. We asked for red velvet for a girl and blue velvet for a boy.

And red velvet it is!

After that, there aren't any announcements to be made except when the baby is coming/has arrived. For that, we borrowed from Juno and sent out a mass "Thundercats are GO!" text to family (though really, it should be "Thundercats, HO!", right?). Once she made her appearance, we didn't need to do anything. Everyone spread the news for us. :-)
