Who's excited about finding out the gender of Baby #3???
Me, Me, MEEEEEEEE!!!!
Well luckily today was the day for us to reveal the baby's gender to our family and friends! We (as in Alan and I) found out the gender earlier in the week (thanks to a new blood test offered in my OBs office called the Sequenom Fetal RHD Genotyping test) and have been keeping it a secret from everyone...until today! Thanks to the test we were able to find out the baby's blood type and gender in a simple blood test that can be administered as early as 9 weeks. (I took it at my 12 week appointment)
Oh how I wish I was someone who could wait to find out the gender until the baby's actual birth. But alas, I'm not.
Which brings us to today (and the reason for this post).
In planning for this party, we couldn't forget to include our family and friends who live across the country. To make them feel included, we asked for everyone to submit a photo of themselves holding/wearing something blue or pink that designates their guess for the gender of this sweet lil' thing. Here's a peak at their submissions.
Let's just say Team Blue was the "winner" if going by votes alone.
After all of the votes were accounted for, it was time for fun in the pool, followed by some yummy pizza.
And finally it was time to make the big announcement (and eat cake)! I mean... who wouldn't be stoaked about eating this cake?
Didn't my friend, Lexa, do a fabulous job with the cake?!! She says making cakes is "just a hobby." (Let's just say I'd love to have THAT hobby).
And now for the big reveal...
We couldn't be more thrilled!
Here's to more PINK!!!!
