SPOILER ALERT

SPOILER ALERT! Do not continue to read this unless you want to know the baby’s gender! Otherwise, go ahead and scroll down past these adorable little ultrasound photos of baby at 21 weeks (although, I admit, the face one is slightly skeletor-ish).

First, I want to thank everyone who has been super patient with us while we kept the news to ourselves for the last few days. It was so hard to keep the gender from our friends (basically meaning Nate), even for 48 hours. Geoff and I were constantly on our toes since he kept trying to trick us into telling him!

We finally told everyone when we went camping this weekend. We stopped at a fireworks store on the way up to the campsite and picked up some colored sparklers. Then when it got dark and we were all sitting around the fire, I passed around the sparklers to everyone and had them all light them at the same time. There were lots of hugs and congratulations (and shots for those who weren’t pregnant), and we had such a fun night.

And so, without further ado, we are happy to announce that…

It's a boy!

We had grand plans for a cool long-exposure sparkler photo, but we were too caught up in the moment to remember to take one. We have some extra sparklers, so maybe we will still do that so we have something for the baby book, but I didn’t want to make you wait any longer.

Now that everyone knows, we can finally start putting the nursery together, finalizing name ideas, and SHOPPING (well, registering).

P.S. Thanks to everyone who voted on our poll – final results were actually 25 to 18 in favor of a girl.

  1. I was trying to figure the gender out based on Pinterest posts but you did a good job posting things for both genders even after you found out! Congrats, you two!

    • Congrats! Do you have a name picked out? I’m crossing my fingers that Wills and Kate won’t steal our baby name now that we know HRH is a boy!

    • We are going to name him after my husband. I would still like him to have his “own name” but it seems to mean a lot to him, so I’ll give him this one lol.
