Pink or blue? The Reveal!

Last Thursday, I had my 20-week anatomy scan ultrasound. It was super exciting, and the ultrasound tech who did the scan was SO sweet and thorough - she really took her time showing C and I each and every part of the baby and talking us through what she was seeing. She worked her way from head to toe, taking measurements and talking us through the procedure. It was wonderful - but also excruciating, because we were dying to know the sex of the baby! She saved the best part for last, and luckily, Baby W cooperated and showed us the goods.

We sat on our little secret until Saturday, when we were able to have our families over to share the exciting news. C had the great idea to fill some balloons with the appropriate color of confetti, and then the grandmas could pop the balloons to find out if Baby W was a he or a she. We found black balloons at Party City and meticulously filled them with confetti... harder than one would think, by the way! 

We tied the balloons onto the ceiling fan and armed my mom, my mother-in-law, and my sister with push pins. The resulting video of me counting to 3 and then the popping of the balloons is SO great - pretty sure I will keep it forever. It was such a fun way to share the news, and it was fun to post the video to Facebook and let friends and family near and far watch to find out as well. I do love an interactive method of sharing information!

If you follow me on Instagram (or we're friends on Facebook), then you likely already know what I'm about to share... but for those who don't, I won't hold back any longer. Drum roll, please...

We can't wait to welcome Baby BOY W this winter!
