Almost 23 weeks now… here I am at the 5 month (20 week) mark
We had the ultrasound last week that told us if the baby is healthy and if it was a boy or girl. BUT. We still don’t know what the baby is!
Confused? We decided not to find out in the doctor’s office. The technician wrote it down in a card that I frantically bought on the way to the office. She slipped the card with ‘boy’ or ‘girl’ written on it and also slipped in the ultrasound that identifies if it’s a boy or girl. We decided to follow that growing trend on having a ‘Gender Reveal Party’. Since this is the first grandchild for both families, wouldn’t it be more fun to invite the families over with our closest friends and find out all together? Much more intimate than in a dark doctor’s office where the tech has done this baby thing hundreds of times and has no enthusiasm about your baby. Sorry, you’re not that special.
Once the families are over, we’ll have an intimate gathering and eventually open the card to reveal how I am going to decorate the nursery. I mean, what our little bundle and joy will be!
Anyway, we got home and took pictures, of course.
Yup, that’s the card. We sent it off to the person who will make the revealing suprise. You’ll have to wait and see how we find out when the party comes in June. Here’s a hint though. This is the invitation:
We do know that the baby is healthy… and very squirmy. I don’t think ‘Bruce’ likes spoiled Mocha Frappucino. Apparently, leaving a bottle of Starbucks Mocha Frappucino out in your car all day while you’re inside air conditioning is not good – for the bottle of mocha-deliciousness, not you. You’re good in AC when you’re knocked up as it turns out. Anyway, ‘Bruce’ had the little fists up around his/her face the entire time. We got video of the baby… check it out if you know his last name and my last name (that’s the password).
