The Best Gender Reveal

The Best Gender Reveal

Once upon a time there was this family, and they were bestowed the most upside-down pregnancy one could have. Not willing to be upstaged in any way, the Gender Reveal had to continue the ride they have been on.

The first of October will not be a day we will soon forget. The weekend began normal; hunt down big black balloons that would hold confetti for our kiddos to pop and reveal gender. Apparently, that’s super hard to come by! It took visiting 3 different stores to score these balloons. And with our photographer and videographer, and intimate family friends we were ready to go. For your viewing pleasure I present…..

Meanwhile, one of my best friends was making this face during the whole reveal. And I knew something was up. This was her face:

Me: uh…..Is this what gender you were told at the Doc’s office?

Friend: uh….nope. definitely nope.

Me: hmmmm….where is the gender reveal envelope, I must go get it.

And that’s what happens when the store fills your Gender Reveal balloons wrong. ūüėõ But it’s also the story of how this family went from baby Boy to baby Girl in seconds. And we could not be more excited! Two boys, two girls. Itty Bitty will have the sister she longs for, and for just a moment all seems right in the world. <3

Our hearts overflow with gladness for our Daughter that we love and can’t wait to meet, whether it is here or in eternity.

For you formed my inward parts;
¬†¬†¬†¬†you¬†knitted me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.

And if you have never listened to Shane & Shane’s Psalm 139 Far Too Wonderful, I cannot recommend it highly enough.

You formed me in my mothers womb
You know my frame, my flesh, and bone
Oh, how wonderfully made
Oh I can’t describe it’s way too hard
You see me through and through
and call me loved
What a wonderful grace, oh
Oh I can’t run, I can’t hide
Even darkness is a light
From the lowest place to the highest praise
You are worthy
Amazing love how can it be
Far too wonderful for me
There’s only one thing left to say
You are worthy, oh
