We recruited Uncle Jared for this one. Jon wasn't thrilled that Jared was going to know the sex of his offspring before he did (a whole 2 minutes before) but he wasn't able to provide me with any other options. So I headed off to my ultrasound appointment this afternoon, came back with a secret slip of paper that no one had seen but the tech, handed it off to Jared and sent him to a room with black balloons and blue and pink confetti.
|Baby was fantastic for it's peep show and kept waving at Mama! The tech even said it was a gorgeous baby ... Don't ask me how she could tell from those pictures, I'll just take her word for it.|
Uncle Jared counted to three and ...
Aw, c'mon. I did this same thing last time, you had to have been expecting it.
Here's the video for the full experience.
Yes, that's right. PINK!!
I realize this is a terribly unflattering picture of me, but for the sake of good sportsmanship I'll still post it.
You see, we had done a few practice rounds throughout the day and I was starting to get a bit gun shy.
With good reason too, I now sport three tiny welts on my left arm where the balloon fragments struck me.
So just be prepared, if you ever decide to try this at home.
|Jack gets a turn.|
And be prepared to sweep up a lot of confetti. Or you could just let your daughter eat it.
Julia's thrilled about becoming a big sister. Okay, so not really. But I will say, my biggest concern today was my reaction on video if this baby was a boy. Not that I don't already love it and would shirk at the challenge of raising three little fellas. But for Julia's sake - I'm so excited to give this girl a sister!
