Saturday was MSU's Homecoming as well as the day of the big reveal of Baby English! In case you don't know, Jesse and I chose to not find out the gender of our baby at the doctor's office. The day that we could have found out the gender, we asked for the results to be placed in an envelope, rather than finding out the news at the doctor. I took the envelope to the State Fountain Bakery on campus and ordered a cake - pink on the inside if it was a girl and blue if it was a boy. We really wanted to do something special with our friends and family all together. This past weekend was the first chance we had to get both of our parents together.
As you can imagine, there was MUCH anticipation leading up to this day. In the weeks that passed, there were so many times that I wished I already knew the gender... especially with everyone and their momma asking me if I knew what I was having. Even though we knew we wanted to find out the gender prior to the baby being born, I can definitely see why some couples choose to not find out. It was special to have a little mystery inside of me. As we got closer and closer to the big day, however, I was SO READY to know! The reveal was set for 3:00 at our tailgate. Time surprisingly flew by until about 2:30 and then it felt like 3:00 would never get here.
THE CAKE which teased us all at the tailgate for about 3 hours.
My mom made these tissue paper flowers at work on Friday, since she couldn't focus on anything else but baby. She surprised us with pink and blue cowbells Saturday morning.
The last few moments of mystery baby!
So excited! A baby BOY!
There was no mistaking the color of the cake.
This makes 5 grandchildren for my parents. They already have 3 boys and a girl. This makes grandchild number 1 for Jesse's parents.
Disclaimer: I have NEVER in my whole life seen my Dad eat dessert. Even he had a piece of cake to celebrate!
Price Family (We missed you Kristian, George, and Ashlyn!)
Needless to say, it was a VERY memorable day and we are so glad that we waited to find out the news this way! Thank you so much to everyone that was able to make it. We were very overwhelmed by the love and support of our friends and family. This little baby boy has a lot of people who love him already!
