11 Sep Boy or Girl? We’re Having A…
I’m so excited to share with you the gender of our precious second child! Keeping the pregnancy a secret was really hard for me because I am ecstatic to welcome another baby into the world and into our family! I’m glad I haven’t had to keep this secret as long because I’m DYING to share this exciting news with you all! Some of you may have seen my Instastories from the little Gender Reveal Brunch that I hosted for my family on Labor Day, so it’s not exactly a complete secret, but I’m just as excited anyways to announce it.
But first, here’s how this pregnancy played out according to the old gender wives tales:
Fetal Heart Rate | [<160 = boy] [>160 = girl]
Morning Sickness | [more sick = girl] [less sick = boy]
Cravings | [sweets = girl] [salty/sour = boy]
Skin | [breakouts = girl] [pregnancy glow = boy]
Chinese Gender Calendar | [age at conception + month of conception]
Ring on a string test | [circles = girl] [side to side = boy]
I am a HUGE fan of anything organic that makes me feel like I’m still getting to indulge in some of my favorite treats! Nothing makes me feel that childhood magic like cotton candy does! It brings me right back to walking the Frank Erwin Center in Austin, holding my mom’s hand, before Disney on Ice or The Ringling Brothers Barnum and Bailey Circus! I found a local Cotton Candy company here in Dallas called FluffPop and they make organic cotton candy, so no artificial sweeteners and coloring! This is made with only the best ingredients! I called the company and they were so excited that we were using their stuff for our gender reveal on the blog that they even put all-natural pink and blue sparkling edible glitter on top and threw in some cute straws too! We put a glass filled with each type of FluffPop Sugaire Organic Cotton Candy and poured some Lime La Croix over the color coordinated with our babe-to-be to create a yummy, pink or blue drink for B [and mom] to enjoy! One day, I’ll do this with champagne!
And just like that, we’re having a baby GIRL!
It’s a Girl!!!
We are THRILLED to announce that we will be welcoming a beautiful baby girl into our family. We are so, VERY blessed and I cannot even begin to express my excitement without first expressing my awe and gratitude to God for entrusting us with this precious gift from above! What an honor it is to be this sweet baby girl’s mom already… I’m just I’m awe that God sees me as worthy of loving both of these sweet babies! Thank you, LORD, for this incredible gift and all your blessings! We are undeserving of such incredible love and are so incredibly happy and grateful for it!
B has been asking for a baby sister, so he is pretty excited too. For a 2 and a half year old, he’s pretty with it and has a good idea of what’s going on. He talks to “baby seester” every day and greets her by blowing raspberries on my belly… then he giggles and says “P.U. I tooted.” yep. I’d say he’s ready to be a big brother. We celebrated with a dance party, tickles and family snuggles!
And then preggo momma got to eat all the leftover Fluffpop Sugaire Organic Cotton Candy… they have a “Rose Gold” one that is literally a rose-flavored dessert of dreams. I actually love the taste of rose [so does B] so I went to town on that. I will be expecting some champagne poured over Rose Gold Sugaire once this baby is born… maybe even in the hospital after to celebrate!
This poor little girl is going to have my crazy rear as her momma, but boy is she loved already! Can’t wait to meet her!
