What will baby bee?

So today we found out what our sweet baby’s gender was! I have to say, it was definitely the best surprise I have ever had in my life. I was also shocked! She could tell right away what baby was, so that was so, so fun! I wish I could have taped the moment because I could just relive it again and again. It will definitely be a memory I have forever.

Also, we left feeling very thankful.

We didn’t really tell our parents/family that we were having a baby in a very fun way. So we (let’s be honest, I) wanted to do something fun to share the news. So we threw a gender reveal party tonight. The theme was “What Will Baby Bee?” I wish I had come up with this idea on my own, but alas, I am not that clever.

The chocolate cupcakes revealed the baby’s gender!

And since I love the element of suspense, I made everyone wait until after dinner to eat their cupcake :).

Everyone voted for their choice:

The group to the far left up until my sister and Finley are Team Pink and from AB (our tallest guest) on is Team Blue.

And baby is….

If you can’t tell, the center is pink! We are so, so, so excited! Like beyond.

As you can see, Finley knew it would be a girl and was thrilled.

The only pink thing we could find to take a photo with – my sister in law’s bag. Ha!

It really was the best day. I also had several other friends who had good news to share, so it was even more sweet for us! We are so grateful for this little baby and for having so many friends and family to share the news with.  (Sorry for the super cheese post, but it really was an amazing day.)

Yay for a baby girl!! And what a cute idea for the reveal party! I was totally thinking boy....which should have been a clue that it is a girl. I am ALWAYS wrong with that stuff! Don't ever get in line behind me at any given store either; I always pick the WORST one!!

And that pic of Fin is too, too cute!
