Gender Reveal

Thanks for all of the love ladies!!
We had one of the best days of our lives yesterday.
I woke up teasing my husband with 'It's a girl' texts
and playing daughter-like songs on the iphone.
He loves Jay-Z and so I was playing Glory {about his baby girl}

I got ready as if we were going on a date.
Curled my hair.
Did my makeup.
I felt so pretty!
 Hubs came home from work,
and off we went to see our baby boy or baby girl.
We always take pictures at the Dr's office...
 The ultrasound went well and all looked good,
from what the tech could see.
**A Jay-Z song played while in the office,
we both looked at each other as if it were a sign**
She said she knew the sex of our baby for about 10 minutes before she told us.
She kept asking, do you know what it is?
I'm like, no lady I have no idea what part of baby I'm even looking at!!
Finally she pointed the baby's bum,
and lo and behold, 
baby is a girl.
Unfortunately the little diva would not cooperate for her profile shots,
so we only walked away with this photo!
She is looking down and the tech didn't get all that she needed to.
So, we have to go back in two more weeks.
We get another ultrasound and then we'll get better pictures & a DVD!
Baby girl yawned during it, as if we were boring her.
It was so cute.
She also kept turning away every time the tech tried to get a good angle of her.
She's already a little handful!
We were both a little shocked, since my husband always seems
to manifest what he wants, I thought for sure this baby would be a boy.
However, I guess my dreams {and wives tales} were right on!
As were most of you my lovely readers!
So while it seems to be the season of boys,
Our little girl will be making her debut January 2013.
I came home and finished my cake-pops/cake balls.
I didn't change the recipe, and the sticks did not stick,
so I'll have to try those again.
 Luckily I had pink candy wrappers in the cupboard haha.
I finished working on my Gender Reveal Activity:
The poem says:
Boy or Girl  
What will baby be?
You have one guess,
Then we’ll count to three.
Whether Mohawks or pigtails,
Football or ballet,
This baby is lucky
To be loved,
In so many ways.
Write your guess here:

They each wrote their guess.
 I think I'll always be a little teacher at heart.
Then I tallied up the responses...
My brother-in-law & our waitress guessed girl.
Everyone else said boy.
 Each pink cake ball was wrapped up in yellow tissue.
We passed one out to everyone at the table.
Counted to three and they opened them up at the same time...

 Proud parents-to-be!!
It was so fun and everyone was so happy.
Before dinner hubs and I made our first baby girl purchase...
Pottery Barn Kids

 It's a super soft changing pad cover...
And a growing family shot outside of PF Changs
And another cute girlie song, when I told my bloggy bestie Amber
I was pregnant, she said this song was playing...
 So here we go...
We are having a beautiful baby girl!!!
Let the fun truly begin.
I love her more than words can say, 
and I cannot stop tearing up at how amazing this all is.
