Baby #2 is a...

Thursday, July 10, 2014

We had our ultrasound this morning and the baby seemed to be measuring fine and doing well (waiting for the official report from my doctor.)  But we found out the gender!

We decided not to do a gender reveal party but instead I made a fun gender reveal cake using this tutorial from Once Upon a Pedestal.  I don't have a cake pop pan so I just made mini cupcakes and then followed the rest of her directions.  Instead of going with the usual pink or blue I was inspired by the "Hooray" Oh Joy cake topper (no longer online)  that I got at Target months ago and went with coral and green for the reveal.
Here's how we told the news to our families via text:
I sent them this pic asking "Is baby #2 a girl (coral) or a boy (green)?

It's a...

Christian is ecstatic!  He was pushing for boy the whole time.  I really didn't feel strongly one way or the other (unlike last time!)  I've had my girl's name picked out for years...that's the part that makes me a little sad.  But I'm looking on the bright side:

1. We will be saving so much money- on toys and clothes (although I'll still look longingly at the girl's side of Janie and Jack!)
2. I won't have to deal with girl drama and mean girls (I deal with enough of that at school!)

3. I think Carter will love having a little brother to play with!

So it's official, I'm meant to be a mom of boys
(& I'm not even wiping away tears!)


  1. Love it! Congratulations!!! Being a boy mom is so much fun! I'd love to hear your girl name if you're willing to share...we still can't finalize one, so if this baby is a girl we're in trouble! :)

  2. Congratulations! I'm so happy for you & your family.
