Exciting Update & a Boo-tiful Halloween Pregnancy Announcement!

So this is a little late, but the holiday season has been busy and it took us a little time to notify our friends, family, and work about some exciting news in the Castan house. I figured better late than never and since it is still technically fall I wanted to share our Halloween pregnancy announcement!

Aiden will be a big brother in April 2019! We aren’t sure he believes us yet, but that is for a different post 🙂

I put together this Halloween pregnancy announcement to share with our friends and family and I thought I would share it here in case anyone has a future spring baby and wants to use the idea!

How to create a boo-tiful Halloween pregnancy announcement:

  1.  We purchased a medium-ish large pumpkin at Cox farms, a local pumpkin patch. I asked them if I could carve the pumpkin and bring it back which they were actually really excited about. I just left the “paid” sticker on the pumpkin when I brought it back just in case.
  2. We carved BABY into the medium pumpkin and used the cutouts to represent our new addition. Note: Keep the cutouts in the refrigerator if you won’t be taking the picture right away.
  3. My mom helped me make a beautiful chalkboard sign.
  4. We brought the carved pumpkin back to the pumpkin patch on a weekday morning (when it wasn’t super busy) and found two more pumpkins. One larger than the carved pumpkin (to represent dad) and a small toddler sized-pumpkin for Aiden.
  5. I took a few pictures of just the pumpkins and my mom came along to take a couple family pictures (but you could also use a tripod).

Get ready for lots of pregnancy content coming soon!

Hi, I’m Melissa! I am a mama to an energetic toddler, a wife to my amazing husband Dan, and I work full-time as a meeting planner. I started this blog because, after having my little guy, I quickly learned that exhaustion and baby brain causes you to forget some of the amazing (sometimes horrible and sometimes wonderful) details related to the first several months of raising a baby. Considering we may have more kids in the future, I want to document everything we do, so we remember what worked the first time around, and hopefully help other first time mamas along the way!
