Gender Reveal Party | It's a Girl!
I love planning small themed parties. So I was super excited to do a gender reveal party even though Jordan and I were finding out at the ultrasound the day before the party;)
Cookie helped me greet guests. She was not pleased about being the pack horse. She sat on the couch and refused to move until guests arrived.
20 weeks! I rented an ultrawide angle lens to get some wider shots of the nursery (17mm). In a small room even my 24 doesn't cut it all the time.
I was so happy my grandma could come down with my cousin for the party (3 hours away)! She's arrived!
Baby Jacob stole the show as usual. Cute babies:)
Cookie mauling guests in her excitement.
Getting the smushies used to having a little one around. They did good:)
I was lucky to have my cousin Jenny taking my camera to help photograph so I could be in some too:) Everyone sat in a circle and I went around tallying up the votes.
We took a photo of everyone before the reveal on side pink (left) and blue (right). Jordan and I guessed before the ultrasound on Friday since we knew and were revealing to the rest!
We skyped in my parents and good friend to watch the reveal. Everyone sat in the living room and then we released the monsters from upstairs...
We had Candy and Cookie run downstairs decked out in doggies diapers, pink streamers, party hats and the like.
Afterwards Cookie lapped up the attention from Grandma;)
Our baby will be Baby's Jacob's age + 1 month this time next year! They'll hopefully be best buds! I bought him this little Boston outfit and it finally fits him!
I went upstairs to find someone testing out the crib. I think he approves;)
After the party wound down we took some pictures with the dogs in the nursery....Cookie was horrified.
It's a girl! We are so excited to be expecting a little girl in June. Thank you to everyone who made my party so special and fun!
And then of course I went shopping. Because I'd been basically waiting my whole pregnancy to find out the gender and go shopping. Girls are sooo fun to shop for! Don't worry I got all this second hand so it was cheap. I think I have my fix for awhile;)
