Molly’s parents came to visit for a few days on their way to a little vacation they were taking. We had talked about various funny ways we could tell them, and we had really wanted to get Molly a t-shirt with an image of a “bun in the oven” and see how long it took them to notice. We checked our local maternity shops, and no one had a shirt like this. I had checked online, but I wasn’t super stoked about any of the options available.
We hadn’t really decided on how we would tell them, but it just kind of came out when we were giving them a tour of our rental house. We recently pinned a black backdrop to the wall where we’re planning on taking successive belly photos. As we passed the backdrop, her mom asked, “What are you doing photography of?” And Molly answered “My expanding belly…” And there was rejoicing and congratulating.
