It's a.....


Yesterday morning Frank and I went for an ultrasound where we were able to find out the gender of our baby. I had seen a really cute gender-reveal idea on Pinterest, where the parents had put a bunch of balloons (either pink or blue) inside a box, and then open it with their family to reveal the gender. We really wanted to have a fun surprise for my parents, who are visiting for 3 weeks, and the kids so I knew I wanted to use the box idea!

We gathered in the afternoon in our back yard, with family and a few friends. Once we were all assembled I slowly pulled the tape off of the top of the box....



It's a BOY!!!!!








The moments were magical, and ones that I know we'll remember always! And now we know more about this little guy who will join us this summer. It really helps it feel more real to me as now I'm able to think about him concretely as another little boy for me to hold and snuggle.
My Jasper is beyond thrilled, he was so hoping for a little brother, and now his wish is coming true!! Woohoo!

Thank you very much for all of the wonderful wishes. Pink would have been lovely as well too, but I'm taking in the idea of having another little guy around the house and liking it more and more!!
