Sorry for photo overload but I just had to share them all! Less than two months ago we flew home for a very quick visit and decided that this trip would be the perfect opportunity to find out if this babe inside of me is a he or she. Kevin really would have preferred a surprise on "labour day", however I have zero patience and really wanted to know. We met somewhere in the middle and found out at about the 24 week mark (about 8 weeks later than we could have had we really wanted to) with all of our family and friends around us to share in the excitement.
It was a fabulous way to find out, especially since we are living out of town and don't get to share much of this pregnancy with our loved ones. Popping the big balloon to reveal pink confetti was absolutely thrilling (and a complete shock as I was so sure I was carrying a little guy!).
Planning the party from afar was a bit of a task, but the most amazing party planner I know and one of my good friends back home helped pull together an amazing day. Scroll down to see the boy and girl pins she crafted - they are literally the cutest ever. Boy jerseys with custom vinyl name bars and girl dresses with crinoline - she is seriously too much! She has also just started a blog chronicling all the parties she plans (for fun, not work!), that I certainly suggest you check out! Visit Kristin over at www.passtheglitter.com.
