It's a...

You didn't think I'd tell you that easy, did you?

With Ian we didn't find out the gender until they day he was born, but this time around we decided (ahem, Brett decided) that we would find out the gender. As much as I enjoyed waiting until delivery to find out with Ian, I must admit, I was more than a little excited to find out the gender with this baby. So excited, that I didn't want to wait until my 20 week appointment (which was actually going to be at 22 weeks) that was scheduled for after Christmas. Thankfully, I have a wonderful friend who does ultrasounds for a living (thanks Mindy!!).

I went in the weekend before Thanksgiving and she was 90% sure of the sex, but since it wasn't 100%, I kept the educated guess to myself. I went back this week and she was 100% sure. Yay!! We know the gender! Oh wait, you want to know, too?

Before we announced it to the world, we wanted to tell our parents. We had them over dinner tonight and then gave them dessert.

The idea was to cut into the cake and see either pink or blue icing to reveal the gender. The only problem is, this is what we saw when we sliced it...

Umm....yeah. The Sam's bakery MESSED up. They used white icing. There goes the big reveal. I was  simultaneously asked by four grandparents, "what is it?!"

It's a GIRL!!!!

Ian is going to have a baby sister! We couldn't be more excited and can't wait to meet her in May!


  1. Now that made me laugh. Congrats!

  2. Uncle Steve and I are so happy for you both!!!!! We love how you tried to surprise your parents. Love you and kiss that handsome baby boy of yours for us. Just very excited for you and Brett and Ian!
