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 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!
