The secret is finally out! We are having a BOY!!!!
I’ve dreamt of being a mom since I was a little girl. I’d always wanted a daughter but the second I found out I was pregnant I was overwhelmed with the feeling that it was a boy. For several weeks after I looked for every reason for it to be a girl. Any wives tales, any little sayings, anything. Andy was convinced we were having a girl and I quickly began thinking the same. I was actually a little worried that I might be disappointed as silly as that sounds (but I personally think that’s totally normal) because I’d imagined bows and tutus and my own personal dress up doll. When we got in the room the Ultrasound tech asked what we both thought and when we both said girl she paused and said “well… these are boy parts right here” and motioned with her mouse. I was instantly filled with pure JOY.
Actually, typing this I can’t remember why I ever thought I’d be disappointed. There’s something about knowing that he is a HE that made being pregnant feel more real. We weren’t just having a baby and it didn’t feel like a mystery anymore. I am pregnant with our SON!! I already feel like I know him a little better and I cannot wait to his sweet little face.
Since finding out, The place we went for our early ultrasound has new ownership. But There are still several places here in Columbia, SC. Including the place we went. I’ll list them here:
Details on our Reveal
First of all, I’m so thankful for my sisters because they were so helpful. Especially my older sister Melissa who made our cake and helped to make sure everything was perfect!
I didn’t have a theme and most of my decorations were from the dollar store or Walmart however I did want to share a few details. Also I always look for a good inspiration photo when I am decorating so feel free to pin these on your pinterest!
Confetti Cannon: Buy it here.
We ordered confetti cannons through Poof There it is on Etsy. They had several options and were biodegradable so if any pieces blew away in the wind it was okay. (pro tip: tell your nieces and nephews whoever picks up the most confetti gets a prize… our yard was spotless!)
Signs: Made by me. My Cricut is my favorite. I have an older model, I’ve linked a new model!
Thank you so much everyone for your kind words!
Please feel free to leave us any questions below! I cannot wait to be a boy mom!!!
