No I am not pregnant! However, I love how creative women have gotten with announcing pregnancies, revealing the gender of their babies, decorating for baby showers and even nursery decor. 

I think there is nothing more magical and amazing then bringing a child into this world. And getting creative and having fun with the process is part of the fun.

While 2 is my limit of kiddos being birthed by this woman, I am now enjoying that whole process with my cousins. My side of the family had 4 new babies last year and at least 2 more this year. So we have lots of little ones to enjoy.


My cousin Lindsay wanted a fun way to announce her pregnancy on Facebook. Because, let’s be honest, announcing it on Facebook is almost as fun as finding out you are pregnant in the first place. 

She saw an adorable hand-painted sign on Etsy and the idea was born to create a printable out of it.

So if you have a fun-loving, super-hero acting boy this is an adorable way to announce the coming of a second child.

I usually get mine printed at Sam’s Club or Costco.  

This would work for an 11” x 14” or less. 

The one pictured is an 8” x 10”. 

Then dress your super hero in a cape and mask and snap a picture.

Then click somewhere in the blue text of “superhero” to change it to the blue color.
