We had such a happy moment a few weeks ago when my hubby, both girls and I went to the doctor for an ultrasound. What a sweet moment having my little family there so excited about baby! I was 16 weeks along and hoping that the doctor would be able to see baby’s gender*. Well, we lucked out because baby had her legs wide open letting us know that she was a GIRL! We are so happy and excited for our third little girl…except for 2-year-old Josie. She was really, really set on a baby brother, but I think she is finally coming to terms with the fact that it’s another sister. And our 4-year-old Elle? She just goes around telling everyone (yes, everyone) very matter-of-factly how the doctor knows it is a girl and not a boy 😛 It’s hilarious and embarrassing all at the same time.
*As a little side note, I would not reccomend bringing small children along to the big 20 week ultrasound because they will get restless and you won’t be able to enjoy finding out about how baby is growing, if baby is looking healthy, etc… If your doctor will do a quick in room ultrasound at your 16 week appointment to try to just determin gender, I would suggest bringing kids along to watch this. My kids LOVED watching the baby on the screen and commenting on how she looks like an alien 🙂
Now, to celebrate my exciting news I’m sharing my very favorite baby girl gender reveal ideas!
How did you announce the gender of your baby?! For my baby girl gender reveal I made a tasty pink cake with white frosting. Super easy, but cute.
