There are few times in life when you are really surprised, and for me, one of those is discovering you’re pregnant, soon followed by learning the baby’s gender. With Annie I took four different pregnancy tests before accepting the fact as truth and then when the tech told us we were having a GIRL, well, my heart could have burst from pure excitement and adrenaline. When I saw two pink lines a second time a year and a half later, I had all the feels. Annie would be a big sister and God was adding another previous baby to our family.
Fast forward a few months and through all the super fun 24/7 nausea and food aversions and we held the proof in a sealed envelope. Boy or girl? We chose to let the queen party planner aka my mom throw a little party for family to come eat good food, see the house and be shocked along with us when the time came. Basically, I wanted a reason to throw a little party for our people and it was the best day.
A clip from the big reveal below and yes, I missed my ball completely on the first try, much to my husband’s amusement.
