Gender Reveal

A few days before journeying back overseas, we had a small party with family and close friends to reveal our baby’s gender…

Pink or Blue??

The guesses were pretty evenly split… though I’d say a few more leaned towards boy.

My mom and grandma decorated everything so cute and festive!

Jesse and I found out the gender at the doctor’s appointment, so the reveal was to announce it to our loved ones. While it was fun having a secret to ourselves, I think for Baby #2 I want someone to reveal it to us…

For the Big Reveal, we had a party store fill a balloon with the appropriate color confetti, and…

And a wiggly boy at that!!!

We were so grateful to be surrounded by loved ones as we celebrated our Baby Boy before packing our bags for this next season.

It is clearly evident that our Little One is already loved by so many…

Now to think of a name….

First comes love, then comes marriage…

… then comes the baby in the baby carriage!

613 days after saying “I do”, two pink lines appeared on a stick.

July 7th, 2016 could easily be the 2nd happiest day of my life.

 

We’re pregnant!

 

Waiting to share our news was one of the toughest secrets I’ve ever had to keep, especially when morning sickness started to make itself present around week 6…

We told our immediate family at 8 weeks, right after we’d had our first check-up and ultrasound.

Now at 15 weeks, we’re telling the world!!!

The announcement called for a photo shoot with none other than the shoes we started our adventure with… Chacos! Unfortunately, while I was searching online, I realized their smallest size sandal would be too big for our needs. So, the $5 sandals from Old Navy would just have to do. We’ll buy our baby Chacos when they can actually walk…

Photo Credit goes to my friend Lindsay, who being 8 months pregnant at the time, squatted down to get the perfect angle of our feet. And although our faces were not in the photo, I was indeed smiling the whole time…

The photoshoot took place over Labor Day weekend while camping with friends down by the CDA River at Little North Fork, Post Falls, Idaho. For our nature loving selves, we couldn’t pick a better place to announce the addition to our growing family.

Can’t wait to bring our Little here in the future!
