BOY!!!! If you read my last blog post, you know that this means I have "mother's intuition" bragging rights. I seriously knew it, intuitively, the whole time.
We had our 20 week ultrasound appointment on Monday and had asked the technician to not tell us the gender, but tp put it in an envelope for us to open later than night. Longest 5 hours EVER.
That night, we had a small family dinner and did a little gender reveal. My mom, who is a chemist, devised an acid/base experiment for the event. We handed her the envelope, she pulled out the appropriate solutions, and we had Avery do the mixing to reveal either pink or blue.
Apologies for the poor photo quality, but I had to post this hilarious moment. Perfect example of a toddler in an overwhelming situation. There was a lot of cheering and celebrating going on when that solution turned blue, so she took the liberty of restoring the peace with a "shhhhh" and mouth covers. She doesn't quite get the whole concept yet, but I have no doubt that she will be a loving and incredible big sister. We are beyond thrilled to get to experience one child of each gender, and feel so blessed that everything with baby looks good and healthy. Here is the first photo of our new little nugget...
Can't wait to meet you, precious boy! <3
