It’s A Girl!

Well, the day of our gender reveal party has come and gone… Like most exciting things, you prepare for days and it’s over in hours (but actually seems like minutes). We had originally found out on Wednesday since that was Diana’s 18 week ultrasound – usually the most anticipated visit because you usually get to find out the gender if the baby is cooperating that day. Luckily for us we got a pretty good look and was pretty much confirmed. This was a much easier secret to keep compared to the actual pregnancy itself – there was more fun in having people guess and make bets in what they thought it was.

I wanted to take a few pictures of the day whenever I wasn’t busy running around or doing something else… We kept this get-together fairly small – thank you to everyone that was able to come and join us. It was awesome having everyone as anxious and excited to find out as we were for you to find out!

Diana and I went out to get some big drink dispensers to put some cool drinks in them for the party.

I made up a poster board for people to put their names on what they thought it was going to be.

Pom poms that are actually a PITA to make. I take no credit for these though – I don’t think I have the patience like Diana…

The one time a year we get flowers…

Thank you to Vicki at Pretty Sweet Co for the awesome gender reveal cupcakes. She made them with cool blue and pink pastel icing and the pink colored cream filling for the big reveal!

Some treats Diana put together as small prizes. Her favourite bon bon candies in some baby bottles and little prize bags.

So this part gets going pretty quick. Everyone was super anxious to bite into the cupcakes and I didn’t have a lot of time to snap photos of before and after. I liked this photo though – everyone is just biting into them and no one knows yet…

And in a split second, everyone finds out! This picture is particularly funny because Punit has been saying it’s a girl since we announced we were pregnant. Everyone else was betting it was a boy… It was at this moment that Punit realized once again that he still hasn’t lost a bet… Don’t bet with him.

And celebrations continue.

A quick clip from Nat’s snapchat.

And another from Punit. All you can hear in his voice is triumph. LOL

Sorry – I didn’t get pictures of each present – but have no fear! We saw them all and loved them all! Thank you again to everyone for the kind gifts!

Cutie Emily who was a star at the party today.

Looks like she loves the camera.

Emily crawling around. She was a trooper today because she didn’t have her nap and stayed strong all afternoon for everyone to play with.

Last pic! Too cute!

Thanks again to everyone that came out and shared this awesome day with us! Time is going by quick!

  1. Congrats man! I don’t know about you, but I’ve always wanted a girl more than a boy. Daddy’s little girl.

    Make sure you buy up some baseball bats for when she hits her teenage years and boys start showing up at the door 🙂

    • Thanks man! I was neutral but if I had to really choose, I wanted a boy first just so if I had any girls after, then we’d have a boy in place of the baseball bat 🙂

      I’m with you though – Daddy’s little girl is something I’m looking forward to. Thank you!
