Gender Reveal- It's a...

Yep, that's BLUE inside that cupcake!  We are so excited for our baby boy to makes his arrival this September!  My mom hosted a wonderful little gender reveal party for a few close friends and family members this past Sunday.  We had everyone vote whether they thought it would be a boy or a girl and it ended up being split down the middle- we had 4 votes for boy and 4 votes for girl after everyone had voted (not including Jeff and I since we had already peeked at the results!).

There are hardly any boys on my side of the family, so we were definitely due for a boy.  Jeff's family is full of boys though, which is great because they will know exactly what to do!  One thing is for sure, this little one will be spoiled rotten since he will be the first grandchild on both sides.  Even more exciting, he will be the first great-grandchild for Jeff's grandmother!
I'll leave you with some of the decorations from the party-

We Caved

We completely and totally caved to impatience.  The gender of our soon to be little one was sitting in a little white envelope on Monday of this week.  We were planning on not finding out the sex until this Sunday at our gender reveal with family, but the temptation was real, my friends.  Six days of waiting while life-changing info was right there before us in our very hands seemed like an eternity!

So we did what anyone else from our I-need-to-know-right-now generation would do. 

We opened it.

It's been kind of fun having this HUGE little secret to ourselves for a week.  We haven't told a soul.  We're still doing the gender reveal on Sunday for family so we'll spill the beans after that.

We can't wait to share the news!

First comes love, then comes marriage...

...then comes the baby in the baby carriage!


I'm excited to finally share the big news on the blog!  Jeff and I are over the moon for this baby already!  These are the announcements we sent out to our extended families.  I'm 14 weeks on Wednesday, and baby's official due date is September 17th.  Jeff's start date for his new job is August 18th, so it will be one heck of a Fall for us.
We told our families back in January because we didn't want to wait!  One weekend we went up to see Jeff's family and brought them a King Cake because it was the start of Mardi Gras season.  As everyone began eating their piece, they quickly discovered that every single piece had a baby inside.  Usually, there is only one baby hidden inside a King Cake and the person who gets that piece has to buy the next cake.  Everyone was so confused until we handed Jeff's grandmother a card with an ultrasound picture inside!
The following weekend, we went down to Louisiana to surprise my parents.  I had these special wine labels made off Etsy for the announcement.  We told them we found this great wine we wanted to try and waited for them to read the labels.  It was a lot of fun!  They say,
"Drink this for me
I'll join you soon
Baby Witty coming
September 2014"


We will be doing a gender reveal in Louisiana next weekend.  Can't wait to find out whether the little one is a boy or a girl!
