And Baby Street is a...

These past few days have been pretty exciting! We had an ultrasound on Thursday to find out the gender of our baby... only, WE didn't actually find out! The doctor put the result in an envelope so we could wait and find our with our families on Saturday. Talk about the longest 2 days of waiting. Ever.

the size of a banana, about 6 1/2 inches long :)

Friday, I had a hair appointment, which always makes for a good day! David's parents, one of his sisters (Anna) and his nephew came into town on Friday as well. We had a good time visiting and catching up. Louann, my mother-in-law, was a great sport as she sat and helped me tear tons of blue and pink confetti to get ready for the gender reveal the next day!

And then Saturday finally came! We had the reveal at 10:00 in the morning, so David and I had to get up early to make some last minute preparations...

We headed to the church to fill these massive balloons
with helium. One was filled with pink confetti and one
with blue confetti. Which were we going to pop?!

And then the moment finally came. We all gathered at Tony's house, and as soon as everyone arrived we got the ball rolling. I handed the envelope to our photographer, she looked at the result and brought us the correct balloon...

We're having a little boy!

This is currently the only picture we have so far taken on David's mom's phone. I think this is such a funny picture. Anna says it looks like we are getting attacked by a swarm of blue bees, and I totally agree! Ha!

Many of us were expecting pink to come out of that balloon, but we are so thrilled to meet our little guy in January! David and I celebrated by taking a trip to Baby Gap and buying him some new clothes!

Can't wait to put that hat on his little head!

We won't need to buy hardly any clothes really because Jenna (my sister-in-law) will be passing along a lot of Hudson and Rhett's old clothes (some of which my mom bought, which will be such a sweet thing to see my little boy in things that she bought).

Needless to say, we've had a wonderful weekend! And now it's time to get started on our little boy's nursery! So excited!

"This is the day the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it."
