Baby W Gender Reveal

How sweet it was to find out that we are having a little girl. I went back and forth constantly on trying to decide if it was boy or girl. I kept having dreams that were boy, boy, boy until a few nights ago when I had a dream that I had a girl named Julia. Naturally, I had researched all the "old wives tales" and most of my cravings, symptoms, signs, etc. pointed to girl, but there is never really any way to be sure. When we went for my ultrasound last Monday, the ultrasound tech asked what we wanted and my mom immediately said "girl!" She kept having us turn away from the monitor so we couldn't see, but I knew we wouldn't be able to "see" anyway. Surprisingly, the past week flew by in anticipation for our big reveal on Sunday. My parents hosted a crawfish boil and party for us which turned out to be the absolute most perfect day. After what felt like 30 days of rain, it was so nice to have some sunshine and a breeze. What a gift. We had so much fun celebrating and I was shaking all day from anxiousness and excitement. I have the cutest pictures from yesterday, so naturally I wanted to share. :) Thanks to all the friends and family that came. We had such a wonderful time and are so grateful to each and every one of you!

The cake was so hard to cut into! This is my face when I lifted the knife out and we both saw a speck of pink. I said "I saw it!" and Josh whispered back "It's pink!"

Team BLUE! 

Team PINK! 

My mom is in blue, but she was team PINK!

Thanks again to my parents who are always so generous. Their granddaughter will be one lucky little girl!
