We're Having a Baby, My Baby and Me

Mr. M and I found out the gender of our baby!

We kept it a secret for about a week until we received our announcement cards. I wanted to let everyone know the gender of the baby in a cute, unique way and was so lucky to have discovered http://www.fetalgreetings.com/. These are announcements coming straight from the baby (worded as if the baby was sending them out). Everyone absolutely loved them! Within a day of dropping the announcements in the mail we started receiving the calls congratulating us.


We had our ultrasound on February 12th and it was so hard to keep it a secret, but we did! Initially I didn't want to know the gender of the baby but after I lost the coin toss, I had no choice. I'm glad I came to terms with finding out the gender because once the baby came up on the screen, Mr. M blurted out, "There's his pecker!" He did this even before the tech could say anything. I cried and he smiled from ear to ear.

We'll soon be parents of a baby boy!
