    when we were expecting walker, gender reveals were a new thang. i jumped on the bandwagon and enlisted a friend of my sister’s to bake a cake and slip a surprise color in the middle. we invited my sister and mom to our 20 week ultrasound and entrusted my sister with the secret envelope. and you know what happened next?! they opened the envelope¬†in the car and then hit the mall! leaving trev and i the only ones surprised when we cut into that cake. and while all the delicious baby boy clothes were a treat, i did not take that trickery well.

    over 5 years later and pinterest visions, it was my sister’s turn. so as she brainstormed the most fun way to announce whether there was a boy or girl baby in that belly – i made her a deal. she would be let off the hook from the grudge i held, if i got to hold the secret. but… the day came and the secret put in an envelope and instead of days, a week maybe for party planning and prep – i was given 30 minutes. they couldn’t deal! they called while still in the exam room saying there was no way they could wait. so i ran around like a crazy person and what you see here is the quickest gender reveal hoopla known to man. (i bought bubble gum too but both she and greg need to work on their bubble skills)

    this was a pretty fun surprise. most of us were on the girl train – who know’s why – even the doctor had them thinking girl. that made it even more fun to see them covered in blue.

    get ready baby boy! we are gonna love you hard and i hope you’re practicing¬†your ninja skills in there – you’ve already been appointed the fourth turtle.

    i don’t know how the word binky became our pacifier name. we tried so hard to make “mute button” stick – isn’t that much cooler? all my babies have been binky babies. and with all my babies, i’ve filled their beds with lots of soothers in hopes that the chance of them finding one in the middle of the night would increase rather than waking me up! can’t say that it worked since we don’t make sleepers, but they don’t wake for a binky, that’s for sure!

    when sloane moved to her very own real crib it was also when she created a new wake up routine. first you toss all your binkies so your mama and daddy know you’re serious about getting out of your cage. once released make sure all binkies are accounted for. and if you can get away with leaving the room with one or two, then extra points! and so began my need to capture this cuteness. if you follow me on instagram, you know my regular postings of sloane squeezing under her bed and managing silly positions trying to get her noggin back out. most of the time i just have my phone on me but this day i came in her room with the real camera in hopes of freezing time. it’s now become a game for us and she will even toss pacifiers back under the bed – this day i gave her back the tossed b’s but after some snuggles and play she was rolling them under so she could show of her stealthy crawl.

    while most are taken with just an iphone, it has become a personal project for me. just the kind i need in this stage of life with littles. easy, simple and a perfect reminder of a silly little thing that’s all her own – that she won’t do forever. i don’t want it to get lost in the mom fog and with all these photos, there’s no way that will happen.

    grandma has a very talented friend and sloane wears it adorably well. what you can see a hint of from in the last (blurry) shot is that she spend most of the time diving off the couch over and over – she thought she was pretty dang hilarious. i think she is too.
