Gender Reveal!!!

A and M were in town for our big 20 week ultrasound this past Tuesday. The u/s went great and everything looks wonderful - Peanut is growing nicely and right on target. We asked the tech to please write down the gender in an envelope and we were going to open it together privately after the appointment. Little did A and M know that I had a surprise up my sleeve for the big reveal. 

A friend of mine works in the same building as my OB, so her entire office was in on the big reveal. I had purchased two pairs of baby shoes - one pink and one blue. I wrapped these and handed them over to my friend before our u/s appointment. She was going to be the one to open up the envelope and give us the coordinating "package". We had an entire audience of office staff cheering us on, taking pictures, and recording the reveal. The entire room was filled with love, laughter, and tears. 

A and M are thrilled to announce that........
This is the collage that I created and posted for our family and friends on Facebook.
