There is always something fun and exciting about having a new baby. Since I am a first time mommy, my main concerns are getting it here and getting it here healthy. Ironically I didn’t care what the sex was or about waiting the full 20 weeks for our ultrasound. I am just glad to be pregnant. (I am going to start sharing our fertility story soon) So when the time started to round the corner, our families anxiously asked us if we were going to find out the gender, and if they could have a party to celebrate. I personally was fine waiting until the baby made it here to know what it was, but my sweet husfriend just couldn’t handle the anticipation. So I agreed to find out the sex. I didn’t care if we had a party or not, I figured those who wanted to know would find out eventually. But after some arm twisting and convincing I agreed to it. We however decided to do a backwards reveal.
Husfriend and I decided that we couldn’t wait until that night with everyone else to know what the baby was. So we opted to find out in the ultrasound. So the party went a little something like this. We knew the gender, so I made the desserts. ONE cupcake was filled with a colored filling and the rest had nothing in them. We would gather our family and friends and on the count of three we would let me bite/rip open the cupcake and reveal to everyone else what our sweet little would be. I tell you what it was really hard to talk to family and not slip in a he/she when chatting about the ultrasound. But we made it through.
The party started and everyone got to make their guesses on a cute chalkboard, and then wear a clip with their choice on it. Blue bowties or a pink curlie cue. After everyone had guessed we had everyone grab a cupcake and join around the table. We caught the whole thing on film, it was too fun! On the count of three we allowed them to bite/tear/cut/rip to the centers to find out what the baby was. My mom got the lucky cupcake and announced to our family and friends that we will be having a little boy in march.
Huge thank you to my family for decorating, planning and making that day one I won’t forget. Especially my little sister, who took it upon herself to do this whole shin-dig for me. Love you k.
Now comes the hard part.. deciding a name for the little fella. Any of you have suggestions??
