We decided to do something a little different with this baby being our last, and do a gender reveal. With the girls we just found out in the ultrasound room, but this time we had the ultrasound tech put it in an envelope instead. I then took the envelope to my mom who wrote the company, Poof There It Is, to order our gender revealing basketball. (thanks mom!)
Sunday morning, we all rolled out of bed at the crack of dawn to film our gender reveal. Filming it just as the sun is coming up is the best time as the light isn’t harsh and you can get the “golden hour” light. (All I know is it was earrrrrly and cold, but the lighting in the video is perfect–Thanks Liz) So we put on our boots & coats, covered our unwashed hair with hats, and ventured out to our basketball court to film in the 30 degree weather.
Garth and Adelyn were team girl while Emery and I were team boy! Adelyn had her heart set on another sister and if you asked Emery what the baby was going to be she wouldn’t even hesitate when she replied “boy”. Emery cried almost the whole reveal (because she hates the cold), and Adelyn’s face was priceless as she watched the color explode from the ball. (Not quite the color she was hoping for…) However, the video is more than I could have every hoped for and imagined in sharing the news with our family and friends!
We are just over the moon excited that we will be welcoming a little boy into our family. And Garth is thrilled that he won’t be AS out-numbered.
