We're Having A...
You guys have been so very amazing to me since I announced our pregnancy! Answering my questions on Instastories, sending sweet messages, and all of your kind comments—I want you to know that I notice every single one of them, and it means the world.
And, you’re even antsier than I was about our gender reveal! Until I became pregnant, I always wondered what was so exciting about all of this baby stuff—but now, I totally get it :)
For Ryan and I, there was never a question of whether or not we were going to find out the gender. I’m a chill person, but there’s a lot of ways I can be impatient, and this is one of them. There’s no way I could wait around wondering whether a lil’ baby girl or boy was growing inside of me, nor could I wait around to decorate the nursery according to what I felt was right for the little one.
In fact, our nursery is almost entirely picked out and ordered. I wanted to fully enjoy Summer without this on my mind, so I got it done ASAP!
So, when our doctor sent me an email with the gender (he initially called but I told him I needed a way for Ryan and I to find out simultaneously!), I was all giddy and excited.
I knew what the gender was from the very beginning. I could feel it in my bones! I was one of those pregnant ladies whose symptoms were spot on for the gender we’re having…
…from morning sickness, to can’t-get-out-of-bed fatigue, to acne-ridden skin, to feeling like an absolute hot mess, I was as predictable as they come. So, here's the big surprise, revealed via balloons (obvi)!
This little baby GIRL was taking all of my beauty and energy to create hers! I was and still am happy to give it all to her and more.
Ryan and I are so very excited to welcome our baby girl to the world this November!
I never had a sister growing up, and I'm not the type of girl who’s always had tons of really close girlfriends. I’m so happy to be having a girl, because I know our bond is going to be incredibly special, and will fill the missing gap that I didn’t realize was there until recently.
YAY! All of the news is out and I’m so happy to share it with you. Ryan and I had a blast with this shoot, and hope you enjoy the photos!
