And it's a........



So, on Tuesday, we had our 16 week OB appointment, and found out what we were having. I had already set up a photo session with a local photographer, Jill Cornelius and she asked if we'd like to do a gender reveal photo. Ummm, yes please! 

I went to Party City and picked up 8 balloons, half of which didn't fit in the box anyway. :) The box was easy to make. A cardboard box, covered with brown packing paper. I cut out a bunch of vinyl with my Silhouette (do you know how hard it is to find a good font for a question mark?? I ended up using "georgia" I believe) and then stuck those on there. 

Jake and I knew what we were having, of course, and we told my parents, Jake's dad and sister, and his aunt. But besides that, no one knew, including the girls. Despite all the texts and emails, begging me to tell them with promises that they can keep a secret, we still wouldn't tell. We told everyone that they had to wait :) 

All of our friends knew that we were having the gender reveal pics done on Wednesday, so there were a lot of posts like this on my facebook wall yesterday. 

 

I told everyone that it just depended on when the photographer sent me a pic. Jill was wonderful, and not long after we got home, she emailed me this. 




Wanna see it? Want to know what we're having????




 
We're adding another princess to the family! I can't wait to meet her!
