Todd and I had the best time with family this past weekend as we revealed the gender of our little one. Nearly 40 family members gathered at my parents' home to find out our big secret. We felt beyond loved that day and I will cherish the memories of our reveal party forever. We're so thankful for our families and are overwhelmed at how loved our little one is already. One blessed baby for sure!
Here's just a snapshot of the party. A special thanks to my good friend Roxanne for making the reveal cake!
** It's A Girl **
Todd and I are thrilled to finally share the news with the world. Baby girl S is doing great. She's growing bigger every day and is starting to kick like crazy. I love it.
For those of you who know me well, you know that I had secretly been hoping for a little boy. I'm not going to lie, hearing the Dr. say "girl" was a bit of a shock. Not because I was sad that we're having a girl, but because a part of me was saying goodbye to my dreams of having a little guy around the house. I always pictured myself with a mini-version of Todd running around, so it took some time to get used to the idea of having a girl. Now that I have had time to let it soak in, I'm absolutely thrilled. She is so loved already. I'm only halfway through my pregnancy, but I'm getting really anxious to meet her.
So to my friends with little girls, please tell me everything you know! I am soaking up advice like a sponge.
Twenty more weeks to go!
