For Brooklynne's gender reveal we had both Matt's family and my parents meet us at BJ's Brewery for dessert and the waiter brought out a giant pizookie with "It's a Girl!" written on it.
For this one, we wanted to have it just be the three of us (and our photographer), and I'm so glad we did it that way. I had my ultrasound on Friday morning, and we didn't do the reveal until Saturday morning. So I had to wait with this envelope sitting on my table for over a day...pure misery. Luckily I have a 3 year old, so she helped distract me.
Saturday morning Matt decorated a box with the words "It's a..." on the outside and I brought it over to Grand Events and had them fill it with balloons. Instead of waiting there, I went over to Barnes and Nobles, bought a latte and sat...anxiously. They filled up the box, called me, and I picked it up.
Giana with Giana Silva Photography came over and took pictures while we opened the box. I really thought it was a boy, and since I was so convinced, Matt was too. I was still surprised to see the blue balloons come out of the box.
At first on Facebook I posted this, and it was so funny to read everyone's guesses and annoyances about us posting it in black and white, seriously got a good laugh!
But then I posted the color one. It was so much fun to find out this way!!
We are so excited about Cooper August Lung, and we can't wait to meet him in a few weeks!!!
