Gender Reveal

Monday, March 2, 2015

What initially began as a super casual get together for our family and a couple friends to learn the baby's gender turned into quite the shindig! As I mentioned in the last post, we planned to share our exciting news on Saturday, February 28 if the baby cooperated. After basically forcing the stubborn little one to cooperate, we finally found out!

This is going to be a huge photo/video overload, so let's go ahead and get started…

We purposefully arrived about 15 minutes late, so we could immediately do the reveal. I knew if we had to sit around waiting for people, we would somehow spill the beans. Luckily, our amazing friends and family were all (very impatiently) waiting, so we got right to it!

We really lucked out with the weather! It was turned out to be such a gorgeous day!

Here's a video of the reveal:
We've watched the video over and over since Saturday. It's overwhelming to think about all of our friends and family that took the time to come out and celebrate with us!

In case you're wondering, that is a knife connected to a Swiffer stick that Adam's holding. His original ideas were a dart or BB gun, which were quickly vetoed by me. What an embarrassing way to die… Pregnant Woman Dies by Dart at Gender Reveal.

My dad took his sweet time getting outside, and thank God my mom said something! He almost missed it, which would have been so sad.

Allison picked up some of the confetti for me to keep for the baby book - GENIUS!

We still can't believe it!!! August can't come soon enough!

Natalie drove all the way down from Charlotte to celebrate with us!

And she brought this amazing onesie! Baby Taco!

Kelsey also drove up for the festivities from Milledgeville!!

Thank you to everyone who came out to celebrate!!!!! Adam and I are truly overwhelmed by all the love! We can't wait to meet our daughter in August!

Mom did a great job decorating! (With the help of Dominica and Alysa!)

Adam has been dying to make his @BabyBaker8 Twitter account live, and this weekend he was finally able to! Watch out world, she's gone social.

After a day of fun celebrating, Adam and I decided to have an impromptu Sunday Funday the next day! I promised one of my clients that we'd stop by for brunch on Sunday, so after church we did just that. It was Stoney River's first brunch service, so we knew it'd be off to a pretty slow start. What we didn't know is that we would be the very first people to eat their brunch (shouldn't we get a medal or something?). And oh my goodness, it was amazing. All of it! So good. I don't typically take pictures of food, but this was just too impressive.

After brunch and Adam's last tennis match of the season, we decided to head out to do some exchanges. Now that we know it's a girl, it's time to take back all the boy stuff that had been purchased!

My dad is adorable and was so proud of himself for going to Gymboree to pick out outfits for the Gender Reveal. These are the swaps Adam made for the boy outfits - too cute! (Quick, hide my credit card!)

We decided to go ahead and start our registry, so Babies R Us was next. Thank goodness they give you a guide - who knew there was so much to get?! And don't even get me started on all the bottles and nipple sizes - mind boggling.

Needless to say, it was one of the most special weekends of our lives!! Now we just have to wait 6 more months to meet her!
