{ ultrasound + a low key gender reveal }

we had our ultrasound yesterday.
you know that big deal ultrasound 
when they can tell you if you're having a little boy baby or a girl baby

mostly i sit in awe of the first sight 
of my child formed more like a human being
and less like a deformed peanut

with both jake and this baby i've laid there with the jelly on my belly 
as a stranger pushes a medical tool on it and i think to myself "i don't want this to end"
then i think, "only 20 more weeks to go until i hold this kid in my arms"

but back to what we're here for
a gender reveal of sorts

we asked the tech to write it on a piece of paper and put it in an envelope

i'm not sure why but it wasn't tempting to open it
we left the medical building and drove away like it was any other day

i guess maybe it was because i was such a fan of our plan:

phil would take the envelope 
with him for the day,
open it and find out by himself,
then on his way home at the end of the day he would stop by a kids' clothing store,
buy this little peanut 
a gender specific outfit,
wrap it up,
and have me open it 
at during our date night.

i'm usually not a fan or surprises. but this one i was r e a l l y into.

but when we got to the restaurant. the bag was calling my name. 
he made me wait until we had ordered our dinner.
good thing we had a turtle for a waitress.

... and ....

can you tell we're excited?

perfect family. 
one boy, one girl.
now we're done.
( k i d d i n g . we are so not.)

awwww so cute!!! we had them write the gender down and seal it up, too, because we just couldn't decide if we were going to find out or not. we ended up flipping a coin every day for a while until it finally came up that we should open it, lol.

congratulations! =)

I came across your blog through your button on another blog, and I just wanted to say a few things:
1. Your blog is really cute, and I love your style of writing.
2. I think that is a fun way to find out the gender of your baby. :)
3. I think it's really cool that you said that you are "so not done" having kids, so many would stop at their one perfect girl and one perfect boy!
