I know it has been long awaited but we have finally decided to announce the gender of our sweet little babe. It took longer than what we wanted! I had to cancel my first ultrasound appointment because my husband got called into work. I was so sad, especially when they told me we couldn't get back in for two more weeks, although I am sure glad we waited (now) because I don't think we would have gotten our "rockin" little ultrasound. Then we waited another good week before we even told our family because of my husbands work schedule; I didn't want to tell each others families without both us being present! I'm just too sentimental that way.
I had the ever so amazing Natalie Park Photography do our video to reveal to our family on a very last minute whim due to some change of plans. Not only was she so amazing to work with but she also did everything just we asked and then some! I was in awe when she sent the video, AND then sent the most gorgeous photos that I was not even expecting. I cannot wait to work with her again because she is just as sweet as they come! We actually have another gender reveal project we worked on that I cannot wait to show you. I would say I hope you enjoy that video, but I'm just going to say that I know you will because she is just that talented!
Since this is most likely our last baby (well not if I have any say in it) I'm not skipping out on any steps and that means even having a gender reveal for our family. Last time we just texted our family 'boy!" and even though it is still a great memory I am really happy we got to capture our families expressions this time around. My hope was to not know the babies gender until the big reveal but that just wasn't happening. By the time your third baby comes around you really know what your looking at during the ultrasounds and there was no hiding what our baby was showing off. When our ultrasound tech asked if we wanted to know the gender both mine and my husbands responses were 'I think we already know" because well we had already caught a peek. She said "well lets see if your right" as she moved the machine around on my belly. Sure enough we were right as he was flashing us all that he had. I started crying for the first time ever during an ultrasound-the happiest of tears. I honestly could not believe what I hearing. What I was seeing. What I was feeling. It was first time ever in my life that I have felt the sensation of peace flow over me. It was one of the most spiritual experiences I have ever been apart of.
Jared thinks we got blessed with another boy because I had told him if we didn't get another boy then we would have to try again. He says " I think god knows we (I) couldn't handle four kids so he gave you your boy;" And you know maybe that's true. And maybe that is why I had such a feeling of peace come over me when I found out it was a boy. I would have been so happy with a girl don't get me wrong, but for me I just feel like boys are what I need. Plus all my meditation and thoughts of "I'm making this baby grow a Weiner" would have gone to waste haha... totally kidding...well kind of. But we really are excited to be adding another little 'lost boy' to our clan!
