It’s a…

We had our sonogram on June 26th.  I wasn’t sure going in if Justin was going to let us find out or not, but I brought an envelope just in case. I knew I wanted to do a gender reveal with this one if he said yes, since I didn’t get to do that with the other kids.  When he said we could do it, I was super excited and had the sono tech stuff and seal the envelope with the revealing photo!  I was thankful for all the awesome gender reveal ideas people sent our way (and the cakes so many people offered to make were especially hard to turn down),  but I wanted something original, that I had never seen before. When my friend Abbe mentioned painting a piece of furniture for the baby’s room, for the reveal, I knew that was the perfect idea! And I even had my mom’s dresser waiting in the basement to be painted for the baby.  So that next week, I took the dresser and secret envelope and dropped them off with Abbe.

She brought the dresser by today, and it turned out so beautiful!  I asked her to paint the outside in a gray, so she mixed Miss Mustard Seed Grain Sack with 1/2 part MMS Trophy. It is the prettiest color.  I also wanted her to paint the inside of the drawers either MMS Eulalie’s Sky (boy) or MMS Apron Strings (girl) for the reveal portion.  She wrapped it up with this gender neutral bow and put neutral knobs on it as well.  This piece of furniture already means so much and I (and hopefully the baby) will treasure it forever!

Justin and I opened it up together inside first and then took it outside to let the kids open.  They were so excited!

Abbe stuffed the bottom drawer with balloons to make it a little more fun for the kids.  Jonah squealed when he saw the balloons and Jocelyn’s face was priceless. Jackson was so excited too!

Before the reveal, Justin made these little cards and made us all guess what we thought the baby would be.  It was probably an accident, but Jonah scribbled on his paper (by himself) and it actually looks like he tried circling one!  We waited until after the reveal to look at what everyone picked (besides Jonah).  I can’t believe we all picked correctly!!
