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.
