After three girls, we are finally having our boy!! I hate surprises so even waiting a couple days to find out, was torture. I honestly do not understand how people can wait til the baby is born to find out the gender. I think it has something to do with my need to plan and just being a super impatient person.
Our best friends are due three days after us so we had a blast doing a joint Gender Reveal Party surrounded by our closest friends and family. We planned on having the party in our back yard, but it rained basically the whole time! We grilled burgers and brats under an umbrella and mingled inside. I had blue and pink necklaces for people to "vote" what each family was having and the chalkboard had Amy and my answers to the old wives tales predictions. Sam thought we would wait for a break in the rain to pop the balloons, but of course I could not wait. So confetti all over the house it was!
Amy and Paul are having a girl! It was so fun to have both pink and blue.
What do you think about the new Gender Reveal Party trend? And what are the coolest ways to reveal a gender that you have seen? Boy or girl, we love them all the same <3
