    Lightbulb Need Hubbers help with Surprise Pregnancy Poem Announcement

    Can anyone who is Wordy and Creative help me with this?

    We are planning on announcing our pregnancy to DH's family via a poem addressed to his parents with a pic of the u/s underneath it, on Boxing Day at the family Xmas. Problem is, I have written the poem but it just doesn't sound quite right (its the last 2 lines that are bugging me). Is someone able to make it sound better for me? Please?

    This is what I have so far:
    Dear Grandma & Grandpa,

    I may be PINK or BLUE; it's too early to show
    In June is when we will all know,
    I am a little surprise and a miracle too
    Can you guess which family I will belong to?
    Thanks in advance

    I'm a little surprise, a miracle if you will
    Hopefully there is a little spot in your heart that I can fill.

    That sounds good. Or maybe

    "I'm a little surprise, a miracle if you will,
    Make room in your heart for me to fill"

    I may be PINK,
    Or I may be BLUE,
    Do you think
    I will look like you?

    I'm too small to see,
    It's too early to show,
    Who will I be?
    In June we will know!

    I'm a little surprise,
    A miracle too!
    Make a space in your lives,
    I can't wait to meet you!

    Love this one. My first thought was changing last line to can't wait to meet you. I really like the idea of printing the poem and putting it with the ultrasound photo in a little frame.

    I like this one Jess has done, it's similar to what I was thinking.

    Totally off the track of your poem, this is what we put together for our annoncement, if you wanted to use parts from it.

    The sound of pitter patter is soon to be heard,
    for we've had a visit from a very special bird.

    Boy or girl, we simply won't say,
    we prefer the surprise on delivery day.

    Now we have 30 long weeks to wait, unless our baby decides to arrive late.

    We're so excited to have a surprise miracle on the way,
    that we just can't wait for our baby's arrival day.

    Good luck and have with announcing it, the announcing is a very exciting time :-)
