The Big Gender Reveal!

We have some big news to share!

I think I will just let the pictures tell the story. Details to come in a separate post because I still have to find the words. Andrea really outdid herself with these photos, didn't she? Thank you, Pinterest, for the great idea!

I thought it was a girl after our ultrasound on Thursday. And Nate thought it was a boy---hence these 'what will it be?' photos before we actually found out.

  10. Love your pictures from the reveal. What a fun way to find out! My husband and I are due in March/April and chose not to find out, but if we ever did with another child, this is a great idea.

  12. SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO EXCITED FOR YOU!!!!!!! Annie watched me read this post and was ALSO thrilled :) "PINK BALLOONS!!!!!!! PINK BALLOONS!!!!" I seriously CANNOT wait to see you with a little lady - her nursery, her wardrobe, and just how much you'll fall in love with her. After some facebook stalking of comments, I kind of figured it was a girl yesterday but seeing the photos was awesome - you guys just look SO excited! Except for the one of Truman with the boots - hahahaha - stone faced little man there!

  15. Congratulations!!! I have been checking all day to see! I love the sharing idea. If we found out the gender before I would totally steal this idea (We're due in 5 1/2 weeks but we're keeping it a secret until the big day although seeing pictures like this make me reconsider now knowing...partially ;-) ) Can't wait to read about all of the details!!

  19. Congrats!!!! Now you have a reason to get some new girly cloth diapers. Not that you really needed another reason to buy cute diapers, but it sounds good!

    Enjoy the next 20 weeks with thoughts of a beautiful and healthy girl.

  23. So excited for you! I got tears in my eyes looking at these pictures. I can't wait to see what she looks like. I'm intrigued to see what babies look like when they have a sibling of the opposite sex. I'm sure she'll be absolutely beautiful. CONGRATS!
