And…It’s a GIRL It’s a GIRL It’s a GIRL!!!
Gabriel and I are beyond excited to share our happy news, we’re bringing a babygirl into this world and I seriously couldn’t be happier!!! I of course just prayed for a healthy, happy baby, and eventually want one of each, but I was secretly really hoping this baby would be a girl! Gabriel is a special man, sensitive and patient, so amazing with his niece Mya and all of my nieces, so I know he’ll be such a good daddy to his own babygirl!
Thank you to all of our amazing friends and family that were there and on FaceTime to share the moment with us!!! It was literally the most exciting moment I can think of in my life! I felt like a little kid again on Christmas morning with so much excitement before we cut that cake and opened that box of balloons! Pink or blue, that’s all I could think about for days… This day would change our lives from here on out. Little boys and little girls are both so special in their own ways, but so incredibly different. I think my heart stopped when I cut into that cake and saw PINK!
This past Sunday we threw a very impromptu gender reveal party for a few close friends and family. I hope some of you were able to catch it on IG stories and if not, I’ll be sharing all my favorite moments from the party here and on my IG throughout the week. Believe it or not, we put this party together in 4 DAYS!! Crazy right?! We were having such a busy week and couldn’t decide on the day, but as my bday gift this year, I really wanted to find out if this baby was a boy or girl! So thankful for my Mom and Dad, hosting the party at their house and my friends, especially Luisa and Kat, for helping plan and get everything together in such short notice! I wasn’t sure we could pull it off, but I’m beyond happy with how everything turned out!! Every detail from the balloons, desserts, to the set-up turned out exactly as I’d hoped it would ♥ I went for a white, silver and of course baby blue and pink theme. The room was filled with lots of balloons, stuffed animals, baby photos of G and I and our sonogram photo of our little girl, flower arrangements, and a cute pink & blue themed dessert table with cookies and Rice Krispie treats that my mom, best friend Lu, and I hand dipped the night before!! It was such a magical day, having everyone together to share our special moment ♥ And I loved seeing everyone’s reactions!
Loved my gender reveal stork cookies by the very talented Christina Ramsey @luxe.cookie!! My best friend told her the baby is a girl in advance so when you bite down into the cookie, the cookie dough was PINK!!! How cool is that?! And love the adorable illustrations and details on these cookies..delicious and too pretty to eat!
And the cake..so gorgeous and exactly what I imagined!! Thank you @cakeandart for this delicious 5-layer masterpiece :) The cake batter was also dyed pink so we couldn’t cut into it until the big reveal!
The crew ♥ Thank you to everyone who came and was part of this special day with us :)
Finally time to find out!! G opened the box of balloons while I cut the cake! So much anticipation leading up to this very moment and it was so special to find out the gender surrounded by the people we love so much!
Not only was this cake stunning, but it tasted so GOOD!! I’ve been eating a slice everyday since!
