This was our second baby and we wanted a creative way of telling our parents. So we waited until I was at the beginning of my 2nd trimester which coincided with my mother-in-law's birthday and picked that day to tell the grandparents. We sent my mother-in-law a bunch of flowers with a card which read: "Happy birthday Mom, sorry your gift hasn't arrived yet, we were told it would take about 9 months" We also sent a bunch of flowers to my Mom with a poem which read: "Our little Xandi was quite sad, where was her brother or sister. Mom had a plan carried out by Dad, which started when he kissed her. Now number 2 is on the way, three cheers for us, hip, hip hooray! To my dad we posted a new born nappy with a little rhyme which read: "Roses are red, Violets are blue, We are expecting, Baby number two!" It was quite a surprise for them all as our first little girl is only 7 months. There will be 13 months between them if all goes according to plan.
