Baby May: Gender Reveal Party

Lucky for Justin and I, the time between the ultrasound and cutting the cake was busy. We had last minute preparations to make for the party and so we had no time to sit around and wonder “he or she”. Our moms seemed more anxious than us and did make many jokes about bribing our friend Kathryn (who made the cake), threatened to stick their fingers in the cake and I think there may have been some questions on whether they could take down Kathryn to get the answer. They stayed awfully close to the cake…



The party began at 7.  Everyone enjoyed food and drink while mingling for the first 45 minutes of the party. A few of our friends needed to leave around 8, so we decided to cut the cake before their departure.


For whatever reason, in the minutes leading up to cutting the cake, I felt nervous. I had no reason to feel this way; I would be ecstatic if baby may was a boy or a girl, but something about knowing the gender made this pregnancy feel 1000 times more real!

The entire pregnancy, Justin and I have both been convinced Baby May is a boy. It was just one of those “feelings” we had.

So, we were surprised to see….



We are so excited for Baby GIRL May! Let the shopping for bows, frills and everything pink commence!
