The ultrasound tech is doing all the measurements and then she gets to the butt ... Matt says to Brody "we're gonna find out if it's a boy or girl - what do you think?" "it's going to be a girl" Brody says & Matt agrees. I was indifferent - I didn't care which way, but to be honest I was leaning boy. I just thought it would be cool for Brody to have a brother to share "brotherly" stuff with and I wanted to name this one after my Grandpa. So, I was shocked to see those 3 little white lines - almost as much as I was to see those pink lines in MARCH! After the appointment I changed Brody's shirt and dropped him off at school *side note* we weren't telling our family until Saturday - they all thought we were finding out on June 25th - so we had to keep this a secret for 4 days AND Brody was spending the night at my Mom's on Tuesday night and would be with her all day on Wednesday. On the way to school I was trying to distract Brody by asking him "so we don't know if it's going to be a boy or girl" He proudly said "yes we do .. it's a girl" man oh man ... I was just waiting for a text from my Mom! But .... it never happened - Brody didn't say a word and neither did I (to my mom) ....We told everyone at work, a few friends and my sister. *June 22nd was the big reveal! We had already planned a Belated Father's Day BBQ with all the grandparents and parents so everyone would find out at the same time. I went back and forth on how to announce it, but decided on balloons! I borrowed a box which was already decorated, but I had something else in mind ....
When everyone arrived and I don't think it really hit them on what was going on ....
But, once they figured it out they were all super excited!! We did a little voting and took team pictures.
Then just before the rain came in we did the reveal!! Matt wanted to trick them a little and throw some blue balloons in the box too, but have them float away and just have the pink ones standing!
IT'S A GIRL!!
I'm happy to say the box dried fine and I returned that bad boy yesterday! LOL
*June 24 - The teachers at Brody's school were so excited to find out so we surprised them this morning with a cookie cake - Brody carried it down the hall with the biggest smile ever on his face.
