I’m so cute, my parents are having another!

Our little family has some very exciting news… we are expecting! We put together a sweet pregnancy announcement for a second baby to share the news.

We didn’t do a pregnancy announcement for our first baby. I wasn’t blogging or active on social media at that time, so we just told our friends and family in person. So old school, right? This time, I knew I wanted to include our little guy in the announcement.

Pregnancy Announcement for a Second Baby

What second pregnancy announcement for a second baby is complete without a Big Brother shirt for the sibling-to-be? The shirt Colton is wearing is from Carter’s, and I actually purchased it before finding out we were expecting this baby. I was afraid they would discontinue it! Looks like that was a smart move, because I don’t see it on their site anymore. There are lots of great options out there, though. Here and here are a couple others that I love for big bros. There are also tons of cute options for big sisters, like this and this.

The chalkboard says, “I’m so cute, my parents are having another.” I’m his mom, so of course I think Colton is the cutest little guy! I fell in love with this design as soon as I saw it. I purchased a digital download of the image on Etsy and had it printed as a black and white engineer print at Staples. The print only cost a couple dollars. I already had a chalkboard on hand from Colton’s first birthday, so I simply taped the print onto it. Super easy!

I took the photo myself with the new camera I got for Christmas. Editing was done with PS Express and Snapseed. They are two of my favorite phone editing apps, as I wrote about here. My husband (and a handful of M&Ms!) helped keep Colton in position long enough for me to snap a few shots. Look very closely and you can see some M&Ms peeking out of those little fists.

13 Weeks Pregnant

Onto the pregnancy itself! This picture is about a month old. Guess I’m slacking on the bump photos this time around! I’m 18 weeks along and getting excited to find out Baby’s gender. We don’t have a preference; I just want to know! This pregnancy has been more difficult for me than my last. I’ve had a lot of morning sickness this time, whereas I didn’t have any with Colton. I’ve also had a lot of migraines and break outs. My skin looks like I’m 13 again! The most important thing is that Baby is happy and healthy. We had an ultrasound at 12 weeks and Baby looked perfect. We are so happy and grateful. And excited!

    1. Thank you very much! Yes, my days of any kind of rest are sadly numbered! I know I will miss my sleep once Baby #2 comes along!

  1. Congrats on the new baby! I did a photoshoot with my first baby and my husband when I was prego. We did white T-shirts and jeans. I love orchestrating the photo shoots as my kids grow and change. These are our cherished memories!

  2. This is adorable. I love the sign! We announced our second pregnancy at my son’s first birthday party. He opened a gift from us which was a t shirt that said “I’m going to be a big brother, July 2010”. Nobody saw it coming!

  3. What a cute announcement! I’m hoping to a second baby this time and I’m so excited of the result of my check up. This is such a cute idea.

  4. What a clever idea and Colton sure is a little cutie! Congrats on your new little bundle to be, can wait to see your next “installment” of your pregnancy.

    1. Thank you! I love the chalkboard designs too but am not nearly talented enough to draw them myself. I envy the people who can freehand the gorgeous designs!

  5. Congratulations!!! I didn’t do a pregnancy announcement with my first or second but was so excited to do one with my third (it’s so funny that they have only recently become a thing). I love your announcement and how big brother got to help share your news. Hope the rest of your pregnancy goes more smoothly than it has started!

  6. Congratulations on new blessings. I am sure Colton would appreciate being big brother. I can relate to when I found out my mom was having my sister. Cute baby bump. Wish you a safe delivery and healthy baby

    1. Thank you, Gina! That’s what Pinterest is for, right? I was pinning sibling activities, etc. before I was even pregnant with my first. LOL 🙂

  7. What a cute announcement! And thank you for the info on the prints- such a great idea and it looks so much better than what I can write in chalk, lol. Congratulations!

  8. Congratulations!! Your announcement is adorable! My 2nd announcement was lame.. I was looking through Pinterest and pinning ideas, forgot to turn off the share to facebook option… and everyone saw what I was pinning LOL

  9. Congratulations!! That is very exciting! You did an awesome job on the announcement photo too. Just looking at it, you would have thought you had a professional do it for you!
