One of our good friends (actually in the hospital right now delivering an angel of their own!) works for an embroidery/shirt printing company. Between her and I we designed shirts to use for the reveal. The shirts were blue to match our wedding colors, and baseball style lettering to embody a team spirit for the baby. Each one had the respective persons title (like ours to the left).
Friday night we went out to eat with his parents. I had rolled the shirts and tied them with a ribbon. Scott handed them out to make them believe it was an army shirt he brought back as a gift. Meanwhile I had my phone out pretending to text but actually recording! His parents were priceless! I'm pretty sure dad was speechless and mom had the cutest laugh! Grandparents #1, done.
Saturday morning we drove up to Lake Lanier with his parents to see his little sister Jessie at her last rowing competition of the year. We found Jessie taking a little nap near the boats conserving her energy for the race. She got up to give Scott a hug and he gave her the shirt. Again, she thought it was a military shirt and opened it. She kind of starred for a second and asked if it was real. Scott and I said yes and she came running towards me to give me a hug. One proud auntie.. she was telling everyone even the lady she never met before helping them guide the boat to the waterfront! Aunt, done.
