Baby #3 - Gender Reveal!

Instead of doing a weekly post (I am 23 weeks today!) I have decided to let the pictures and video from this weekend's festivities do the talking.

I am overjoyed and still very emotional about finding out that we are expecting another baby boy. I will be the first to admit that we were hoping for a girl, until the moment I saw that first piece of blue confetti. Just like with all of my babies I am so ridiculously in love, there is no room in my heart for even the tiniest pang of remorse. I am so glad that we made a big show of the reveal! I think my friends and family really enjoyed finding out with us. Honestly, it was one of the best moments of my life...and yes I cried like a baby...and am getting teary eyed now thinking about it now. 

A BOY! I don't know what I did to be so blessed. 

My only regret is that Lily is back-to in the video, her face was priceless. We will all laugh for YEARS as we recall her tiny scowl. She was initially very disappointed but turned it around pretty quickly and as of now is very excited to welcome another baby boy (whom she would still like to name 'Bob')  to our family. I am feeling extremely at ease with the news. A daughter and two sons, this is my family. Amazing. 

Name is still very much TBD. Now that we know we are having a boy I would like to lock in a name, like yesterday. Dingle doesn't seem to share my same sense of urgency! 

A special shout out to my sister and my dad for keeping our big surprise a secret for over a month. Bonus points to Kate...the engineering marvel that is the 'reveal box' would not have been possible without such a creative, selfless, and dedicated sister. I love you. 

A boy (sigh), how wonderful is that!?! 


  1. So freaking cute, I'm getting teary just watching the video now. A little boy is in there!! Either is so awesome, but a boy and his mom? Amazing. Congrats, girl!!

  2. Amazing! Congrats!!! I love the reveal - very cool. Lily gets to remain the princess…she will appreciate that some day :)
