We’re having a…

Yesterday afternoon, we had a crowd of family and friends gather so that we can share the next phase of our big news – the gender of our little one. :)

We found out a couple weeks ago (because I’m a control freak and just had to know!), and managed to keep it a secret until yesterday.  Instead of telling our families over the phone, we wanted to share the news in person (because watching their reactions is way more fun that just hearing it on the other end of the phone).  And having such wonderful friends who are excited and were interested too, a party was the best way we could think to share the news with everyone at once.  Throw in the fact that technology is awesome, we were able to record and live stream (thanks to the USTREAM Broadcast For Friends app) the gender reveal for friends and family that couldn’t be there in person.

We had everyone dress in either blue or pink, then had board on the wall for them to post their guess.

Guesses captured!

After hanging out a bit, and waiting until 3 pm due to some significant Atlanta traffic issues (thanks I-285 and I-75!), we went outside and took ‘team blue’ and ‘team pink’ photos before getting to the exciting part!

Team Pink!

Team Blue!

We got our families in position and had them open the box to reveal the appropriate colored balloons:

Preparing to find out…

All the while, we were recording and streaming to capture the moment as it happened.  If you’re interested in watching, you can do so here.

But if you’d rather just read to find out, we’re having a boy!

It’s a boy!

Now that it’s public knowledge, I can start pinning things on Pinterest that I’ve been saving in email drafts for weeks now!  Woo hoo!

We are so thankful for everyone that was able to make it, we love you and know that our little man will have some fabulous people in his life!

Josh and I are very excited and can’t wait to meet him in January!  I see even more sports in my future than I live with now…
