Sugar and Spice and Everything Nice

We found out the gender of our third sweet pea on Monday! With this being out last child we tried to be creative in finding out and revealing it to our other kids and parents.

We decided to have the ultrasound technician put the gender with a "potty" shot into an envelope. Shane and I would take it and go to lunch or a park and reveal the gender privately. I have to admit it was extremely difficult and took a lot of patience to look away when our sweet baby was on the big screen when getting the ultrasound. There were times we were allowed to see it but for the majority of the time we had to look away. After the baby moved its foot and the tech found out the gender so easily, my husband and I both decided we thought it was definitely a boy!

We were so blessed to be able to see our sweet baby and most importantly, he or she was completely healthy!

After seeing the Dr we took the envelope and hurried to the car. We drove to a park and were so ready to have our "moment". I opened the envelope and removed the paper so Shane and I could both see. I saw it and immediately started crying....

What a shock!!!! We feel so blessed! This experience was one of the most exciting and exhilarating experiences of my life. I am so glad we branched out from the traditional way of finding out.

I got supplies from Hobby Lobby decorated a box that would reveal pink balloons for our boys and parents. We were so excited for them to find out!

We videotaped tour reveal experience with our family and then posted it for our friends:

What a fun day and night! Wouldn't change the experience for the world <3

Now for deciding on a name...
