Oh Baby....It's A...!

So before I get to the information I know you are all just dying to know, I have to tell you a little story about these photos.

Several weeks ago, my good friend Alison offered to take the photos for me. I wasn't about to hire a photographer for this and I thought it would be super fun to have a friend take them for me. We brainstormed a bit on how we wanted to do it and settled on using balloons. So we picked a date to meet at a park, I picked up the balloons on the way and I figured the rest would be easy. Wrong! Do you know how hard it is to work with balloons?! Pinterest makes it look SO easy, but even the slightest breeze sends those balloons into a frenzy. Add to that a toddler who is more interested in throwing rocks on the train tracks and then some funky lighting in the trees as we tried to get away with the wind, well, we had a lot of laughs! At one point I even said to Alison, I think these pictures would make an awesome Pinterest fail post, haha!

Anyway, I'm forever grateful to Alison (and her kiddos!) for being a good sport about it and still capturing some great images for me! Thanks, Alison!!

We were so certain we would have another boy if we had a second child, and as much as I would love for Sully to have a brother, I would be lying if I said I didn't really want a little girl. I did have a pretty good feeling that this baby is a girl as this pregnancy has been different than when I was pregnant with Sully, so when my suspicions were confirmed at our ultrasound, I cried tears of joy. And then I felt sad that Sully wouldn't be getting a little brother. Oh, pregnancy hormones!

At the end of the day, I only pray for a healthy baby, but Baby Girl, we are so excited to welcome you into our family at the end of this year!
