Thursday, January 5

it's a ....

we decided we wanted to find out the baby's gender a different way.
so our awesome friend, asha, offered to help us out...

when we went to our appointment we told the doctor that we didn't want him to tell us what the baby was and to write the gender down on a piece of paper. we then met our friend asha who filled up a box of balloons for us.

blue for a boy.
pink for a girl.

we opened the box later that day with family.

can we talk about a freaking cute this box is!?!
asha + her boyfriend painted it and put it all together!
[thank you asha + kurt!]





time to open the box!



it's a
BOY!

and we're so happy!

the doctor said everything was measuring well and that our baby boy looks happy + healthy.

i feel like it's starting to set in, the idea of being pregnant.
my stomach has started to pop out...
and people are noticing.
i kind of love it.


i'm pretty much on cloud 9.

and i can't wait to meet our little
noah.
